Armando is a native of Mexico with a young daughter. He said he was keen to keep his child close to his family. Armando detailed his story in the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season two premiere. He married a woman and had a child, but continued to grapple with his sexual orientation the whole time. After separating from his wife and coming out to his family—who weren’t accepting—Armando’s ex passed away in an accident. Kenneth said viewers will see some additional reasoning behind Armando’s decision to stay in Mexico and not move to the United States with Kenneth.
“We have the same-sex relationship with us, so that’s mostly what I’ve seen out of other people…I never really thought of it was interracial, to be honest with you,” Kenneth admitted.
Kenneth said he and Armando went into the show prepared to encounter audience members with bias and homophobic responses. “I have thick skin and I can handle it,” he said. However, Armando hasn’t been out as long as Kenneth, so there was some struggle, Kenneth said. “It’s been really eye-opening for me.”
