Elizabeth, 27, is based in Tampa, Florida, and Andrei, 31, is from Chisinau, Moldova. The couple met on a social app while Elizabeth was looking for a local guide for a vacation in Europe. After chatting online and meeting in person, Elizabeth is now bringing Andrei to the States, but her family is concerned about Andrei’s conservative traditional views on gender roles.

Evelyn, 18, is from Claremont, New Hampshire, and met David, who grew up in Granada, Spain, on social media. She is an aspiring singer who fell for David’s “sweet nature” and “strong Christian values.” However, the two may butt heads over his desire to live in a big city while she wants to be close to her family in a small town.

Molly has two daughters, Olivia, 17, and Kensley, 6, and also a conservative father who believes Luis just wants a green card.

Returning to the show this season are Nicole, 23, and Azan, 24, who viewers met last season. Nicole, who is from Bradenton, Florida, is now heading back to Morocco in hopes of bringing Azan back to America. She’s also bringing her 2-year-old daughter May with her in hopes that Azan will prove to be the father figure May has never had. However, Nicole needs financial support from her skeptical father to co-sponsor the K-1 visa.

Season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé premieres Oct. 8 at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
