TLC Show to Feature Mormon RM and Fiancé, A Russian Party Girl From His Mission


The first episode of TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé” will focus on the love story of a young returned missionary and a Russian go-go dancer he met on his mission.

People reports that Josh and Aleksandra first met while Josh was serving a mission in the Czech Republic for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Remaining nothing more than friends, Josh and his companion helped Aleksandra to learn more about the Church. Aleksandra, a party girl who was surrounded by alcohol, drugs and dancing, eventually converted to the Latter-day Saint faith, promising to give up her party life-style. 

After Josh returned home to Rexburg, Idaho, the two began skyping nearly everyday, and quickly became an item. Despite hesitations from his family, Josh and Aleksandra have decided to get married, and with Aleksandra traveling to the United States on a  K-1 visa, or the Fiance Visa, the two love-birds only have 90 days to tie the knot or Aleksandra will have to return to her country. 

The episode will air on Sunday, October 18, 2015 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
