Who is Tarik?

Tarik is living in Virginia Beach, raising his daughter mostly on his own.

On 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, Tarik explains that the relationship with his daughter’s mom didn't work out, and one of his ways of figuring things out after that break up was to travel the world.

On his journey, he discovered that he appreciates women from Asia, even having a relationship with a woman in Bangkok for a while.

When he returned home, he kept trying to find love in Asia using dating apps.

Who is Hazel?

Tarik describes her as an Asian Angelina Jolie. They met when she was 25, and she's and from the Philippines. When she’s finally introduced, she explains that she has a 6-year-old son (now 9), but he lives with his father because she can’t afford to care for him alone.

She also says that she is interested in American men because she is hoping to leave the Philippines for a better life.

Tarik's brother was initially concerned about him meeting Hazel.

Tarik tells his brother Dean about his plans for go meet Hazel, and baby bro had a lot to say about it.

He’s concerned that Hazel is trying to use Tarik for a green card, and insists that he should go along with to the Philippines to make sure the situation isn’t a scam.

Flight delays caused some drama between the pair.

The trip to the Philippines is two days long, and it gets even longer when Tarik encounters problems at the Bangkok airport and has to spend the night there.

Hazel hears this and breaks down, worried that Tarik is going to use it as an excuse to meet up with his ex, and maybe he’ll never get all the way to the Philippines at all.

They don't see eye-to-eye on religion.

After all the travel snafus, Tarik arrives and Hazel is delighted to see him.

She is eager to introduce him to her family and invites him to church with her parents. What follows is a five hour long service with praying, crying, speaking in tongues, and other expressions of faith.

Tarik is surprised, but remains respectful. After church, he explains to her parents that he’s not normally a churchgoer, but he understands how important it is to them.

Tarik's brother, Dean, has more reservations.

Dean finally arrives in the Philippines and Tarik and Hazel meet him for dinner.
