The final regular episode of 90 Day Fiance has come and gone and I already need more. Thankfully we have a reunion coming up this week. I think it might even be two parts.
Paul and Karine (Brazil)
This couple didn’t really have much of a wrap up. Paul’s mother came down to see the baby. Karine seemed to sort of bond with Paul’s mom. She convinced her to tell Paul he needs to help with the baby and get a damn job. Mom also told him that she is about to retire and she can’t afford to bankroll his bad decisions any more. I feel like by now Paul is back home living with mommy.
Laura and Aladin (Dubai/Tunisia)
I’ve never understood this one. What is Aladin’s angle? He went through with an entire wedding with all of his family. He professed his undying love. Aladin seemed to think Laura was going to give him and American baby, was that the angle? I can find fifty young women in Atlanta in two hours who would move to Dubai and give him all the babies in the world. I need someone to explain this to me. Also, I’m not surprised he is bad in bed.
Jihoon and Deavan (South Korea)
On the final episode, Jihoon and Deavan had a traditional Korean ceremony with Jihoon’s family. Deavan came around a bit by the end of it, but she seems to have no clue what it means to move to another country and raise a child in a Korean family. If you are going to move in with a Korean family and have a Korean baby, you need to stop whining about how it’s not just like America. She always seems to have one foot out the door.
Despite not wanting more children, as it turns out she got pregnant again. She announced yesterday that she had a miscarriage and that she and Jihoon were heartbroken. She remains living in South Korea with Jihoon. I believe her other child has arrived as well.
Corey and Evelin (Ecuador)
Oh Corey. Why the hell would you move to a third world country for a girl who still talks to her ex and has made it clear she is not going to marry you? Even her daddy tried to tell you it was never going to happen. Perhaps that was lost because you DON’T EVEN SPEAK SPANISH and daddy doesn’t speak much English, but you really don’t need to speak at all to understand the dynamic here.
On the finale, he took Evelin on a hot balloon ride. Sort of. The balloon never got more than a few feet off the ground and people were holding it down with ropes the whole time. Because Evelin had the great good sense not to get in a hot air balloon in Equador.
Then Corey flashed a diamond ring which she snatched right up and suddenly professed her undying love for the guy she has barely tolerated all season. Corey ended his grand proposal with a dinner on the beach served by a private chef and a fireworks grand finale. We are supposed to believe this means a happily ever after. We do not.
Ronald and Tiffany (Johannesburg, South Africa)
This was difficult to watch. Tiffany decided that Daniel wasn’t happy in South Africa. Clearly, Daniel missed the comforts of the United States, but Tiffany pushed Ronald on him as his father. Not a father figure, but his father. Daniel and Ronald were extremely close. So it was extremely cruel to that child, and to Ronald who took Daniel as his son, to rip that relationship apart. I kept wondering why they had to stay in an unsafe city when there are other areas of South Africa that are a lot safer. Why not move as a family from Johannesburg to one of the safer suburbs of Cape Town? This entire situation bothered me and broke my cold black heart.
Jenny and Sumit (India)
Y’all. I want this relationship to work out. I know it seems crazy but their long drawn out goodbye got me all teared up. And Jenny worried about the public backlash against Sumit was endearing. These two love each other and it is clear that he has zero control over his life. He’s clearly being help hostage by his family.
On the preview for the reunion, the foreign people are Skyped in and everyone is on Skype except for Sumit and Jenny is devastated. I am hoping against all odds that that means that Sumit somehow managed to escape India and will show up in the studio. Shut up. A girl can dream.
I absolutely loved this season. I need another season of it ASAP. It is so much better seeing the Americans in other countries than the regular way. What did you guys think?
Normally, I say NO SPOILERS but since the season is over, TELL ME EVERYTHING!
