Once again, this 90 Day Fiance The Other Way recap only covers the first hour of the episode. I feel like they are trying to drag things out because this is the most popular version of 90 Day Fiance. Even thought it gets the fewest comments on this site most of the time. I am brain dead from working on my stupid income tax and recapping Below Deck. I’m ready to start buying the old people supplements that are supposed to bolster brain function. I’m not even kidding. But I neeeeeed to see Armando and Kenny tonight. I hope there is very little if any Tim and Melyza.
Brittany & Yazan
I had almost forgotten about these two. Just like I forget to roll the trash out, or take my vitamins or most of all what I got up to do in the kitchen. 🙂 It’s the morning of Brittany’s first full day in Jordan. The night before she and Yazan had a huge fight before even getting out of the airport parking lot. I don’t blame Brittany for hugging the producers or even for the tequila. Both are legal in Jordan contrary to Yazan’s statements. They are simply haram (forbidden) for Muslims. Brittany is not Muslim. At least not yet. I’m pretty sure Allah would not be happy with him for yelling fuck you at his fiance in public either.
Yazan arrives with a flower for Brittany but she is expecting an apology for his behavior. She doesn’t really get one. But he seems sort of ready to be over it. I suppose that will have to suffice for now. He wants to take her to see his parents. He has brought her something to wear. Probably a hijab. Or a burka. On the way there they fight again over her hugging her American production team. She too has customs. They have the same fight over and over. Yazan knew she was not Muslim. He also knew she likes to my Internet videos with next to no clothing on in front of other men. Did he really think she was going to wear a burka? Or even a hijab? This has to be fake. Then Brittany puts on the hijab. she looks really cute in it.
Brittany Continues To Conceal That She Is Still Married
Here goes nothing. Yazan and Brittany fight all the way to his parents house. Yazan’s parents want this to speak with Brittany’s father and then get married on Sunday. FYI Friday is the religious day in Muslim countries. The work/school week is Sunday through Thursday. It too me a while to understand why the US work week starts on Monday when even our calendar weeks start on Sunday and run through Saturday. Yazan says the wedding must wait until her family can come to Jordan. Really, she’s stalling because she is currently married.
Yazan’s dad seems to be catching on that she may have been previously married. He is also concerned about her apparent lack of desire to convert to Islam right away. Brittany tells Yazan she is interested in Islam but a religious conversion is not something she is going to rush into. He says that she wants to “go slow like a baby.” She politely (for a change) tells him not to be condescending to her. Someone must be translating for the mother who doesn’t want her face on camera. She says someone needs to tell her that Islamic women respect their husbands and if he says she’s a baby, she’s a baby. You do not say no to your husband. Well, for on thing, he is not her husband.
Oh my! Yazan’s dad knows about her THOTish social media. This is not good. He says she has to stop all the social media if she wants to be with Yazan. He says they will take good care of her. Yazan translates in a very different way. He leaves out all of his father’s kindness. Apparently, everyone has a translator in an ear bud. Yazan’s mom goes off saying they have been together for a year and she wants her son married and her having babies. Her day says in Arabic that her behavior on social media makes her look like a prostitute! Then Brittany storms out. But it’s true! If you want to marry into a Muslim family you have to live as a Muslim. You can’t be an Internet THOT.
Ari & Biniyam
Ari and Biniyam are at their apartment where “world traveler”Ari is unhappy with the accommodations, and seemingly unable to care for herself by simply helping make the bed. Ari’s mom gets her first gander at her pregnant daughter’s living arrangements. She is not having it. Biniyam claims he has a better apartment that is not ready yet. WTF has he be waiting for? Why is Ari’s mom so shocked at the living conditions in a third world country? I am annoyed with these two Americans. Biniyam takes Ari and her mom to the apartment he is renovating. It is a disaster, and very, very far from being complete. It would take at least six months to finish this apartment on based on whatever his budget is.
Armando & Kenny
In Mexico we catch up with Armando making a little welcome home collage for Kenny. I rewind to remind myself how old he is. He’s 31. I’m just saying. That’s a bit past the arts and crafts stage. There apartment is very cute. And Armando has the God given sense to stock the kitchen and get the apartment set up. So at least there is that. He is smarter than me with a glue gun. I am not allowed to use a glue gun. 🙁 Armando says the Kenny prefers his crafty gifts. I must say it turned out quite nice. The apartment has amazing ocean views. I want to live there.
Kenny has been on a bittersweet four day drive across America he misses his family but he is so excited to see Armando and their new place.
Deavan & Jihoon
This couple is having a huge crisis regarding housing. Alson, Jihoon has a lot of Asuelu tendencies and deficiencies. Jihoon is back with apologies and and explanation. He said meeting her and knowing he was in debt and then becoming a father was overwhelming. He’s 29 though and she is 23. He should have been able to work as many real jobs as it took to get himself together. He’s too old to be a part time delivery boy who lives with his parents.
After just telling Deavan that morning he had no money, the very same day he says he has been putting all of his money into his mother’s account so she can manage it for him. He says he has $3000. But he has been depositing his money into her account for four months? He says he averages $2000 a month as a part time delivery person. Shouldn’t that be eight thousand? Deavan says she doesn’t want to be with him anymore. She is going to a hotel with her mom and the kids to think.
ppJenny & Sumit
Jenny and Sumit go out on a paddle boat with one of Sumit’s friends, Neeraj. She is pissed that Sumit has yet to take her to the lawyer to see the divorce papers yet. He keeps postponing it until “tomorrow.” Neeraj feels bad about not telling Jenny that Sumit was married. But, he knew Sumit never wanted to marry her and always wanted to be with Jenny. Neeraj says that he has been trying to get divorced for four years. She’s fighting him in court.
Sumit, a habitual liar, says that his will never take that long because he and his wife have agreed on a settlement. But, it seems like he not only has not paid, it’s going to take him a very long time to pay. Sumit wants them to get on their feet before going to the lawyer. Ummm hmmm. Neeraj says Sumit needs to take her to the lawyer tomorrow and let her see all the paperwork. Once again, Sumit agrees to go with her the next day. Sure, Jan.
Next Week: I feel like they are teasing up so much with Kenny and Armando, but next week, it seems Kenny finally gets to come home. Sadly, we will probably also get way too much Tim and Melyza. Jenny finds out that Sumit’s divorce could take two to five years. Or maybe more. Jihon cries over Deavan to his mother. Things escalate with Brittany and Yazan.
