Anfisa Arkhipchenko, 20, Moscow, Russia, was contacted by Andrew Lopez aka Jorge, 25, Riverside, California, via Facebook after he stumbled onto her photos. Though Anfisa was at first resistant to his messages (Jorge claims he "fell in love" with her just by viewing her noticeably sexy photos). Anfisa eventually agreed to meet him and Jorge ends up taking her on an expensive vacation around Europe. Shortly before Anfisa was scheduled to come to the United States, she asked Jorge for an expensive handbag, which Jorge declined to buy for her. Anfisa managed to wipe Jorge's cellphone and cancel the flights, though the two reconciled and eventually Anfisa agrees to travel to the U.S. Jorge is a convicted felon, having pleaded guilty to drug trafficking, which makes it hard for him to rent an apartment.
Anfisa is less than impressed at their living arrangements - a hotel - though why exactly Jorge does not have his own place to live has not been revealed. She is also upset that she will not be given the so-called allowance she wants, a mere 10K a month, after Jorge says he makes enough money for the both of them (Anfisa, though, has an interest in modeling). Jorge is smitten and absolutely in love, though his friends and family are certainly concerned about Anfisa's motives.
As the wedding planning progresses, Anfisa keeps asking for very expensive items. After she tries on a $300,000 ring and suggests that he could sell his car to help pay for it, Jorge confronts her about money. She admits that she is primarily interested in him for his money, and she also believes that he is primarily interested in her for her looks. Jorge is crushed by this. She was considering going back to Russia, and Jorge considered for a while that he would not try to stop her. They get married alone in a simple courthouse ceremony with the promise that they will have an elaborate ceremony later on.
Nicole, 21, Bradenton, Florida, and Azan, 23, Morocco, met via an app that allows users to connect with people all over the world. After hitting it off, though somewhat against her parents wishes, Nicole decides to stay with him for five weeks, leaving her toddler-aged daughter May with her sister. Upon meeting Nicole at the airport, Azan remarks that she is "big...a little bit" but concedes that he is happy. Nicole is thrilled to be in Morocco with Azan (later calling him her "Arabian Prince"), though he has a hard time persuading her that in his culture it is not acceptable for unmarried coupled to be physically affectionate. Nicole persists in trying to hug and kiss Azan, which only causes him to become irritated. Nicole, meanwhile, feels shunned and unsure of their relationship.
Azan takes Nicole to his hometown to visit his family; she is warmly welcomed and we learn that his mother especially is thrilled with Azan's girlfriend. Unfortunately, Nicole later reveals that she cheated on Azan, something that could end the relationship should his family find out.
Azan takes Nicole to the desert and proposes, and she accepts. However, she continues to chafe at the customs of the Muslim culture. She refuses to convert to Islam and he refuses to convert to Christianity.
Their wedding is delayed indefinitely due to Nicole not being able to yet afford to fund the government sponsorship requirements for Azan's staying in the U.S, and her Mom refusing to co sponsor the effort. Nicole believes it will take 2 years minimum and hopes Azan will wait that long. Their future is unsure, but as of today they are still together, but continuing to live in separate countries.
