I haven’t watched all of the first episode of B90 fights back yet. I won’t be recapping that. It is basically the people from the show watching clips of the first episode and some from the corresponding Pillow Talk episode. The participants address trolls on social media and comments made by the Pillow Talk people. That’s not really a recap friendly show. So, I’m moving in to my 90 Day Fiance The Other Way recap. I’m very into this version of 90 Days.
Jenny & Sumit
As bizarre as this pairing is, they do seem to really love each other and there is no green card agenda. I love these two but Sumit has a real problem with telling the truth. They are both so excited when Jenny finally lands at the airport after an excruciatingly long trip. Jenny is one of the few Americans who seems to truly appreciate and embrace the foreign culture. But even Jenny has her limits. After over thirty hours on two planes and another two and a half hour car ride, an exhausted Jenny finally arrives at the new house. And there are people there. And a cow. There is a house blessing ceremony. And she has to hold a flower pot on her head. WTF?
It gets even more insane when they start a fire in the house in a pot. And then, they bring the cow into the house! Even with all the insanity, Jenny still notices that the house is really bad. There are fixtures hanging out of the walls and there is no furniture that I’ve seen so far. Eventually, they take the the cow and go. All Jenny wants to do is go to bed. Thankfully, they at least have a bed. Sumit has even more bad news. It is a high crime neighborhood with no security. Yikes! Sumit says people get killed for ten dollars. And this is where you move the woman you love?
Armando & Kenny
I had some notes for a post about Armando but I decided to save it for here since this season doesn’t seem very popular with you guys. The short version is the tragic way that Armando’s wife died. She pregnant at the time and was pursuing Armando in her car since she was angry with him for …I guess… coming out. She ended up dying in a car accident and the baby was able to be saved. So tragic. These two are everyone’s favorite couple.
Armando has very little time before Kenny arrives so he has to tell his parents that he is moving and that he is moving in with a man who he plans to marry. When he begins he talks about living a lie and crying himself to sleep. He tells his parents that they need to accept him for who he is. His father looks very uncomfortable and his mother is sobbing. He says it is hard to feel like his parents don’t love him. His mother gets up and hugs him and asks him how he can think that. His dad says he didn’t know how sad Armando was because he never told him. This is gut-wrenching. The parents take all of the news well. His mom agrees to meet Kenny but the father needs more time to process things.
Deavan & Jihoon
Is It take your mother to work day? At least two of the moms, Deavan and Arilea are traveling with their mothers. I guess TLC can afford a few extra tickets since these franchises are blowing the Bravo shows out of the water with ratings. What doesn’t make sense is Deavan thinking Jihoon is going to be anything more than a third child for her to raise. Drascilla is an excellent little traveler!
Jihoon has lied to Deavan again about his job. He makes close to nothing working as a part-time delivery boy. Why do guys lie about things that will obviously be exposed? Even his friends are laughing about how lazy and stupid he is.
Brittany & Yazan
The only thing dumber that Deavan and Jihoon is Brittany and Yazan. Brittany may need to have her agent on speed dial to get her on Locked Up Abroad because I totally expect for her to get arrested in Jordan. Yazan’s mother will not even allow herself to be filmed because of her religious beliefs. This will never work. You can’t turn a whore into a housewife, let alone a Muslim housewife. Yazan is lying through his teeth to his father! I love hearing the Arabic and picking up the handful of words I know. Also I wish I had some of that shahee.
In her talking head, Brittany says she is “definitely going to corrupt Yazan.” At the airport, Yazan waits with a bouquet of flowers just as his father instructed him. And she is appropriately dressed in a track suit. So far so good. Brittany will be staying in a hotel. Azan can visit but he can’t sleep with her. Have they really not had sex? I think she was there for 40 days last time. I don’t believe they haven’t hooked up. Once out of the airport, production stops them to put a mic on Brittany before they get it the car. When Brittany hugs the crew she accidentally exposes a bottle of alcohol in her carry-on. Yazan looses his mind. He says he told her she can’t drink here, and she can’t hug people. They might not even make it out of the parking lot.
Arilea & Biniyam
In other idiotic news, nothing says love like flying to Ethiopia to have your baby. And that is exactly what Arilea is doing. And she is leaving her dog. I stopped traveling because I could stand leaving Banjo for a week or two. People you can talk to and they can come visit. Your dog never seeing you again is another thing.
I already can’t wait for the next episode of 90 Day Fiance The Other Way! It looks like we get a new couple next week!
