Meet Stanika Banks, who tired of being friend-zoned by American men decided to find love in a way her friends and family did not approve of. It’s the TLC’s Match Me Abroad way we speak of. She is one of the six hopefuls/American singles traveling to Colombia, Morocco, and the Czech Republic for love or rejection in TLC’s newest matchmaking series.
Let us tell you all about Stanika and if or not she can find and match energy to her first-ever boyfriend, in the rest of the writing.
Stanika Banks On TLC’s Match Me Abroad
In Match Me Abroad, Stanika Banks under matchmaker Nina Kharoufeh’s care moves to Morocco hoping to meet her first boyfriend. Stanika is particularly hoping to find someone who appreciates her sense of humor and boisterous personality. Despite being a novice in the dating scene, she seemed to know herself and what she wants.
In a teaser, we see Stanika tell she is tired of being friend-zoned and done with American men. Then, excited about the forthcoming man-hunting, she said her dream man is in Morocco waiting for her and she is therefore ready to travel the world to see if she can find him. Her family was skeptical of her plan to find love abroad though.
Fellow cast and American sports broadcaster Mark also will turn to Nina for guidance to find a Moroccan wife in Season 1 of Match Me Abroad.
Nina who grew up in Jersey has been helping Arabs meet Americans in Morocco and is considered undefeated in her ability to bring great matches together.
Is Stanika Banks Dating Anyone?
As of now, it was not known if Stanika Banks after she was done with filming in the country of North America, was also done with her process of finding herself a man.
In a trailer of the show, she can be seen trying famous local delicacies while on a date with a Moroccan man. She is seen strolling the streets with him and having great laughs. Still, we have not been told if the date was successful. But, she was clearly in good hands with her matchmaker. Also, Match Me Abroad being most likely non-scripted should have helped.
