90 Day Fiancé Spoilers – About 90 Day Fiancé stars Mark And Nikki Shoemaker
For those who might not know their story, Mark and Nikki starred in season 3 of 90 Day Fiancé in 2015. At the time, Shoemaker was 58 years old, while Nikki was only 19. Meanwhile, the 39-year age gap between the pair proved to be the largest ever on the TLC reality show.
While Mark is American, Nikki hails from Cebu City in the Philippines, which is coincidentally where he met his first wife and the mother of his four adult children. In fact, Nikki is two years younger than his youngest daughter Ellie, which caused problems in their relationship.
After his first divorce Shoemaker was single for more than 20 years and raised his four children. Once they grew up, Mark went looking for love on an online dating site, where he met Nikki. He then traveled to the Philippines to meet her and it seems their chemistry was incredible. In fact, only two days after meeting each other, Mark popped the question with a zip tie, instead of a ring, and she was more than happy to say, “Yes.”
Mark applied for a K-1 visa for Nikki, who traveled to Baltimore to be with him. They were married in 2015, but have since kept relatively quiet. They don’t have social media accounts and haven’t appeared on any of the 90 Day Fiancé spinoffs.
