90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 2 stars Kenneth and Armando are ready to make history as the first male gay couple on the massively popular TLC franchise.
ET's Melicia Johnson spoke to the couple ahead of the season premiere on June 8, and they talked about sharing their journey together on national TV. Kenneth, 57, fell in love with 31-year-old Armando after they connected through a gay father support group. Kenneth, who's from St. Petersburg, Florida, decided to move to Mexico to be with Armando, but they face plenty of issues -- one being that Armando hasn't come out to his family.
While Kenneth tells ET the two are "excited" about being the first male gay couple on the show, Armando is a bit more hesitant. Armando actually initially told his parents that he was participating in a documentary so that they would participate in filming, and says he doesn't think they would have been part of it if he had told them the truth.
"I'm a little nervous, personally, not knowing what to expect," Armando says. "I'm recently coming out so, you know, putting it out to the world is a big step for me."
The two did watch 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days couple Stephanie and Erika's storyline this season and commented on the show's portrayal of its first lesbian couple. Stephanie and Erika broke up, after Stephanie didn't want to reveal to her mother that she's bisexual.
"I'm sure it was portrayed accurately," Kenneth says of Stephanie and Erika's journey. "What a lot of the times people don't realize is same sex couples have the same problems as everybody else. They have the ups and downs -- some make it, some don't."
Armando adds, "Some people look down on them for what they went through or how their story turned out but ... it's something anybody goes through in any relationship -- straight or homosexual."
Ultimately, Kenneth and Armando say that when it comes to their own story, they want to help viewers who might also be struggling.
