90 Day Fiancé Couples: Who's Still Together?

She met Stephanie, a 29-year-old American, online through Stephanie's YouTube videos, and the two struck up a friendship before confessing to romantic feelings. Now, Stephanie, who is taking great risk to her health given her rare bone marrow disorder, is traveling Down Under to meet Erika.

"I am very attracted to the fact that she's very unapologetic about who she is. She's loud, she's funny, she likes to be proud of her sexual-ness," Erika says about Stephanie.

But Stephanie has yet to come out as bisexual to her family. As far as they know, she's going to meet Erika as just a friend.

"We seem to have this really genuine, beautiful thing that I've never felt before," Erika says.

Will their online romance translate to the real world?
