Wow. I forgot this was a two hour show. I may have to finish this 90 Day Fiance The Other Way recap in the morning. It’s almost midnight. On the other hand, I really want to watch it. Oh I just realized that there is another episode of the 90 Day Fiance finale tomorrow. Soon, TLC will be nothing but 90 Day Fiance shows 24/7 and that makes me happy. Oh wait. It is actually next week.
Yazan & Brittany
We start 90 Day Fiance The Other Way with one of my favorite sounds, the adhan, the Islamic call to prayer. One of our new couples will be living in Jordan. Yazan is 24 and he lives in Amman, the capital city of Jordan. Yazan’s fiancée is relocating for Florida to Jordan. That’s going to be a huge culture shock for her. She is a fast paced working girl and in Jordan the women tend to stay home and cook and clean and take care of the young children. I don’t have high expectations for these two. But I hope it works out because I love the scenes of Jordan. It reminds me a bit of Tripoli.
Oh Lord. Brittany is a wanna be THOT from Palm Beach. She needs to just stay home. And she is a wannabe rapper. The oldest man Brittany has ever dated was in his 80s. She is a nutcase. She’s gone from dating old men for cash and prizes to moving to a third world country to live with a 24 year old and his whole family? At least she has already been to visit him once before and they got engaged. Brittany’s dad is hot. She’s going to need to lose all that long hair. This is a disaster waiting to happen. She may end up with a spinoff on Locked Up Abroad.
Yazan wants Brittany to convert to Islam. She is not interested in that at all. Brittany wants an apartment with Yazan. But his father won’t allow it. His parents want them to marry in the first few days after she arrives. Sidenote: OMG a new season of 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After is starting on Sunday! This is going to be the best summer ever! Oh wow. Brittany is already married. She married a Haitian guy who moved to the US when he was three. They grew up together and got married in 2015. He got deported just a few months after they got married. No one ever filed for divorce. It could take up to 6-10 months.
Jenny & Sumit
I could not be more excited that Jenny is going back to India to be with Sumit. He swears he has filed for divorce and he has rented a house for them. I love, love, love this couple! Jenny is almost 62. She has been living with her daughter and sleeping on her couch for the last five months she’s flat broke with no money, no car and no place to live. Oh this is her third trip to India. These two have been through a lot. But they really love each other. I am naively optimistic about this relationship. I hope she has been trying to learn the language. Jenni’s daughter and her wife are both so hot. The wife thinks he is lying about having filed for divorce.
Hmm Sumit’s story is changing about when his divorce will be finalized. His wife has filed criminal charges against Sumit claiming he was physically abusive. Jenny wants his parents to confirm to her that they know she is coming back. Sumit seems very nervous about this request. He claims his parents don’t want to speak to her. Which makes sense but he is already acting shady.
Is Sumit Lying AGAIN???
Sumit tells us he has learned his lesson about lying to Jenny. Sumit hasn’t told his family yet, so he is lying already, Also, Sumit has to pay his father in law back the $20,000 he spent on the wedding. So he is broke too. He has already repaid $10K. He’s explaining this to his friends and even they don’t believe him that his father has helped him pay back the first half of the debt. Oh, Sumit. You have to stop with the lies. His friends don’t have a problem with Jenny per se. But in ten years she will be 72 and he will be 42. And he will wish he had kids.
Jenny goes to meet with her financial advisor. She has finances? Oh. She wants to file for Social Security benefits. Her financial advisor thinks Jenny is making a huge mistake. Wait, Sumit doesn’t even have a job? How did he rent a house? This is not looking good.
Armando & Kenny
Kenny is 57 and is from St. Petersburg, Florida. HOW THE HELL IS HE 57? He looks 30! I’m trying to remember if we have had a gay couple yet. He has four kids all of whom are in their twenties. And he has one grandson. Apparently, he didn’t know he was gay until he was 19. So how did he get all the kids? One of his friends agree to have his children for him via in vitro. He basically raised them by himself. Now he is moving to Mexico to be with 31 year old Armando. They met on a website for single gay fathers. Armando has a six year old girl. Kenny had reservations about dating someone so much younger. And now he is moving to Mexico to be with him. And he has sold his house. Did I mention he is hot AF?
In Mexico, gay relationships are not accepted by most people. And Kenny has gone all in on the move. Kenny’s daughter is not happy he is abandoning his daughter Madison and grandson Cooper. Maybe they can come to Mexico! Armando is sort of estranged from his parents who do not approve of his sexuality. Armando lives in San Felipe which is basically a small beach resort town just over 100 miles south of California. Madison needs to dry her tears and plan many visits.
I Just Want To Give Armando A Hug
Armando owns a pet resort and grooming shop. The business is on the same property where he lives and his parents live. He was married to his daughter Hannah’s mother until he came out. She told his mother and he went back into the closet and it was never mentioned again. Just a few months after they separated, Hannah’s mom died in a car accident. Armando’s parents have no idea Kenny is coming. And they are moving four hours away. This might be a good time to tell them. He told his parents the camera team is there filming about life in Mexico.
Armando goes and talks to his sister about his sexuality. The last time they spoke about this she was terrible to him and and ran into the desert and laid down hoping to die. She is heartbroken to know he is leaving. She cries hard and tells him she will always be there for her. Now he just has to tell his parents. I LOVE THIS COUPLE PLEASE LET THIS WORK!
Arilea & Biniyam
Arilea is 28 and from Princeton, NJ. She is very athletic and has been a world traveler since she was 17. She married a guy she met in Argentina. The were married for ten years but they were separated for the last three. So apparently now she is ready to rush right in to marrying another foreigner. So she started traveling the world. She went to Ethiopia on a whim because the ticket was cheap and it was there that she met future husband there. He’s a dancer and a gymnast. That sounds lucrative. She found out that she was pregnant after three months. So, she returned to the US for prenatal care.
She is now six months pregnant and getting ready to go back to Ethiopia. There are no epidurals in Ethiopia and she is nervous about that. She is Jewish. The baby is due on Christmas Day. Ariela’s mother is a nurse and she is going with her to Ethiopia to check out the hospitals.
