A 28-year-old Princeton divorcee is featured on a TLC "90 Day Fiancé" spinoff.
Ariela is a freelance writer dating Biniyam, a 29-year-old dancer and gymnast from Ethiopia, on the TLC series, "90 Day Fiance: The Other Way." The first episode of the spinoff’s second season aired Monday, June 8.
The show features Americans who uproot their lives in the U.S. for a shot at love with their significant others in foreign countries. For Ariela, that means going to Ethiopia.
She met Biniyam while waiting for a cab outside a hotel.
"I was waiting for a taxi outside a local hotel and I saw a very attractive guy," she said. “I yelled out, ‘Don’t I know you from somewhere?’ and it actually worked.”
After three months of dating, Ariela discovered she was pregnant and returned to the U.S. for prenatal healthcare.
Ariela reportedly planned to give birth in Ethiopia so that Biniyam could be present. However, she still has reservations about the lack of bathrooms and kitchens in Ethiopian apartments, as well as the quality of healthcare, InTouchWeekly reports.
"Watch 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way," Mondays at 9 p.m., TLC.
