90 Day Fiancé is always good for some friend drama, but this friendship is a little bit different.

Meet Mike, a 34-year-old from Sequim, Washington, his friend Matt has always been a big influence in his life. Matt married a woman from Ukraine, so that prompted Mike to look overseas for love too. So, Matt and his wife Svitlana, who named Mike the godfather of their daughter Pollyananna played matchmaker and introduced Mike to Natalie, a 35-year-old from Ukraine who just so happened to be the godmother.

"When Svitlana showed me pictures of Natalie, I thought at first sight that she was absolutely beautiful and gorgeous," Mike says in the exclusive clip above.

And when Mike got the 411 on Natalie it seemed almost too good to be true. She modeled, she was family-oriented (she lived with her mother) and she had multiple degrees, including one in journalism and psychology.

"I was hesitant at first. I was thinking to myself, 'Why in the world would this woman possibly be interested in a guy like me?' I'm not saying I'm not a catch, but," Mike says.

He eventually gave it a shot. Mike and Natalie began chatting online and then Mike went to meet her in person. By the end of their first meeting Mike knew she was the one for him, so on their second meeting, this time in Paris, Mike proposed at the Eiffel Tower.

Can the two reconcile their differing lifestyles—he's a little bit country, she's a little bit city—to complete the 90 day process?
