90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days fans will meet a new “colorful weirdo” on tonight’s episode of the popular TLC show. Erika Owens is 24-years old, and part of 90 Day Fiance’s first same sex relationship with Stephanie Matto.
Erika Owens lives in Port Augusta, Australia, and is a photographer.
“I love it. I get to be creative and work for myself,” Erika Owens says a released sneak peek preview. “I don’t have a lot of boundaries, which is really important because my lifestyle is just not conventional.”
“I am very independent, and I like doing whatever I want to do. To me, living loudly is very important. I’m just a very colorful weirdo,” Erika adds.
Erika Owens connected with Stephanie Matto, a 29-year-old American, via her YouTube videos, and their friendship soon turned romantic.
Stephanie Matto suffers from a rare bone marrow disorder, but believes that a trip to Australia to meet Erika Owens will be worth the risk.
“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 Matto.
“We seem to have this really genuine, beautiful thing that I’ve never felt before,” Erika says.

In an earlier episode, Stephanie Matto backed away from coming out as bisexual to her family — keeping them in the dark about the real nature of the relationship.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days airs Sundays, 8 p.m. on TLC.
