Brandon and Julia: 90 Day Fiancé Journey
Worried sick for Brandon’s love life, his parents signed him up on a dating app for farmers to find the right girl for him. Interestingly, they chose a rather charming picture of their son carrying a baby goat but life had other plans for the Virginia farm boy. He first saw Julia on a video call while she was go-go dancing in a club and instantly fell for “the most beautiful girl” he had ever laid his eyes on. With a little nudge from their mutual friend, who had introduced them virtually, the two began their long-distance relationship. Within a short span of time, Julia and Brandon began to notice their poles-apart lifestyles, him working on his family farm for a living and her with a city-life upbringing.
Nonetheless, Brandon and Julia did not let the differences mar their special bond. The adorable couple knew it in their bones that what they had was real after communicating for merely 5 months and one meeting in person. The 27-year-old was so smitten by the delightful personality that he proposed to her during their second meeting in Iceland. Based in Russia, Julia wasted no time in applying for the K-1 visa which luckily got approved by the US immigration services shortly after. Now that she was finally preparing to land in America, the pair realized that in fact a lot of money had been drained to work the long-distance relationship. What fresh hell does it expose them to and are they able to survive it at the end of the day?
