Ingi Reveals Why Dating in Iceland Is So Difficult (Exclusive)

Ingi Reveals Why Dating in Iceland Is So Difficult (Exclusive)

Introducing Ingi from Iceland!

In an exclusive clip from Monday’s episode of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, fans finally get a formal introduction to Ingi of Reykjavik, Iceland. The Icelandic party boy is planning on starting a life with his girlfriend, Corona, who has put her dreams of midwifery school on hold to move to his country.

Ingi, 39, has had his fair share of fun and enjoys Iceland’s nightlife. However, he is cautious when it comes to dating seriously, and for a good reason.

“Dating in Iceland can be a little like Russian roulette,” Ingi explains in a confessional interview. “You don’t know exactly how related you are. Here in Iceland, we are more related to each other probably more than anywhere in the world. For example, when we’re dating, we have a website to see how related you are, but the question is always, are you going to look beforehand or afterwards?”

He humorously notes that the chances of discovering a date is a cousin and then meeting again at the next family dinner are quite high. That’s why Ingi is giving love a shot with Corona, as there’s no chance the two are related since she was raised in the United States. Like him, she has a party spirit, and that’s how their love story began.

“I’ve had my fair share of girls, but I never really met someone that ticks all the boxes for me until I met Corona,” he shares. “I definitely didn’t expect that I would be meeting my future girlfriend at an after-party at my apartment. I did not realize that she was hitting on me. She also took a nap,” he says with laughter.

Corona is moving to Iceland to be with Ingi after their initial meeting and a brief trip to Ireland together. In the season premiere, she dropped the bomb on her mother, sister, and grandmother that she is giving up her spot at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania’s graduate school for midwifery to move with her beau.

One surprising element in their relationship is that Corona doesn’t even know Ingi’s last name. Despite this, she is ready to sacrifice her academic dreams for love.
