’90 Day Fiance’: Leida Agreed To Marry Eric On One Condition – Must Apply To TLC Show

90 Day Fiance star Leida Margaretha agreed to marry Eric Rosenbrook reportedly with one condition. She allegedly told Eric that she would accept his marriage proposal only if he applied to be on the TLC K1 visa show. Now that they got what she wanted, Eric and Leida are blaming TLC for ruining their reputations. According to an interview published in a local Baraboo, Wisconsin newspaper, Leida had an agenda about getting on the show.

90 Day Fiance: Leida Margaretha Wasn’t Looking For Love

The 90 Day Fiance star admits that she wasn’t looking for love online. She was actually looking for furniture when she stumbled upon Eric’s personal ad online. She clicked on it, not knowing that months later, she would be in America getting married.

All she wanted was a chair, but instead, she found a man who lives on the other side of the world. Ironically, one of her complaints about his apartment was his lack of furniture. Too bad she didn’t bring the chair with her to the US.


The Baraboo paper reports that Leida and Eric phoned and video chatted for seven months before they met in person. At the time, Leida Margaretha was working in Japan as a teacher. Eric Rosenbrook traveled to meet her there and on that same trip, he proposed to her making her his 90 Day Fiance. She accepted his marriage proposal, but under one condition.

Eric Rosenbrook Told To Apply To TLC Show By Leida

The one ground rule she gave to Eric was that he had to apply to be on TLC’s 90 Day Fiance. Eric wanted to marry Leida, so he applied. Leida Margaretha was excited that she could possibly appear on an American reality show. She admits that she never thought they would get accepted to be on the TLC program.


Eric Rosenbrook was hesitant to apply to the show. He admits that he doesn’t watch the channel and never thought they’d hear back from the network. He expressed the fact that he doesn’t even like being in pictures. If accepted, he had to get used to the idea that he would potentially be followed by cameras.  However, if he wanted get married to Leida Margaretha he had no choice but to agree to her terms.

Different Financial Backgrounds Makes Great Storyline

Leida comes from a wealthy family and lived in a big house with her folks. When Leida told her family that she was going to be on 90 Day Fiance, she says her family was excited. She was a model and actress in Indonesia. However, she never planned on being one in America. Her family thought that this opportunity would be good for her life in America.


Eric lives a middle-class lifestyle that has repeatedly disappointed Leida Margaretha, as fans saw this season. When Eric told his family about appearing on the show, they reportedly didn’t like it. Some of his family members didn’t really like Leida and were afraid she was in the relationship for all the wrong reasons.

While it took them some time to accept his participation on the show, it appears they’re still struggling to accept Leida. So while Eric Rosenbrook and Leida Margaretha are now angry at how they’ve been portrayed by TLC on the show, they are the ones that chased down the opportunity to be on the show so they literally asked for it…
