’90 Day Fiancé’ Is Casting College Students for New Spinoff Show
90 Day Fiancé has seen a lot of weirdness in its time. The show, which follows lovestruck couples across borders in either direction, depending on the spinoff, has a strong fanbase on TLC. However, it seems as if 90 Day Fiancé is looking to expand itself even further.
Already there are a variety of spinoffs for fans to watch, and these can be hard to keep straight. Now, TLC is casting for a new series, this time based off of college students who are having a 90 Day Fiancé experience of their own. Here’s what we know so far.
Putting out a casting call
According to a report by Starcasm, Sharp Entertainment has put out a casting call for a new 90 Day Fiancé special. It seems to be tentatively tiled 90 Day Fiance: College Edition. TLC’s various spinoffs have been successful so far, so it makes sense that they’d want to expand even further.
Sharp Entertainment’s official announcement states that they are “casting couples for a new documentary series with a major cable network. Specifically, we are casting students (college/university/graduate students) who are in a relationship, in which one partner in the relationship is an international student (studying in the U.S. on a student visa).”
“We are ideally looking for international students who are graduating by the end of this year,” they added. This doesn’t seem quite right since typically students end their college career right before summer starts.
Options for married couples
While 90 Day Fiancé certainly has its fair share of zealous fans, there are others who have suggested that TLC sometimes frauds its viewers when it comes to the show. Some fans believe that there are couples who have already been married, or already broken up, that are essentially acting out their stories for the show.
For example, some fans aren’t so sure about 90 Day Fiancé couple Jenny Slatten and Sumit. Slatten recently discovered that Sumit was already married, and that his family is not happy about her. However, SoapDirt uncovered a Facebook photo of Jenny Slatten posing with Sumit’s mother in 2013, with both of them looking happy.
However, on the show, Slatten claims she met Sumit’s mother when she was confronted by her after learning Sumit was married, and that Sumit’s mother is not happy about her. Fans have encountered such speculations about other couples as well.
So some fans may find it interesting to learn that Sharp is allowing for currently married couples. If married: One spouse must be a U.S. citizen. One spouse must be a former International student,” explains the casting call. Could this be some proof that marriage is not an obstacle for TLC when it comes to 90 Day Fiancé casting?
Other spinoffs to keep track of
There are four total spinoffs for fans to keep track of if they want to get the whole experience. These include Happily Ever After, Before the 90 Days, The Other Way, and a web series, What Now?
90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After follows some of the show’s more famous couples, and documents what their lives are like after tying the knot together.
