This is a new season of 90 Day Fiance. It’s season eight and I don’t think I have seen all of the first seven seasons. Though it is a new season, we will see some familiar faces. And the season preview looks super dramatic! So let’s get right to this 90 Day Fiance recap.
They start us right off with a spoiler. I think that is Natalie who is sobbing about having to fly home in the coronavirus one day before her wedding. Apparently Mike did something horrible. Again. In fact it doesn’t look like any of these couples stand a chance.
Brandon & Julia
Brandon is a 27 year old pest control worked from Dinwidde, Virginia. He lives on a farm with his parents. They breed dogs. He expects to take over the family business. He is extremely close to his parents. Extremely. He’s a hard worker. He’s never had a girlfriend before. So he found himself a Russian bride. Julia is a go-go dancer and the titular comment is what Brandon said to Julia in a video chat six hours after meeting her. He proposed to her in Iceland and then they traveled to France so both parents could meet. Brandon paid for both of them. Now Julia is coming to Dinwiddle, Virginia to live on the farm with the parents. This has never going to happen written all over it.
Julia is already asking him to buy her clothes and to move out of the farm quickly. Julia and Brandon’s mom, Betty already hate each other. It’s a week before Julia arrives. Oh Lord. Brandon’s parents are refusing to let them share a bedroom. That’s pretty ridiculous. Then Brandon’s mommy starts really overstepping her bounds. She wants to take Julia and have her put on birth control. That’s not the way it works. This guy is pushing 30 and is still treated like he is 15. Oh of course mommy and daddy are going to the airport with him to pick up Julia. On the way to the airport Betty gets a phone call from her doctor. She is setting up an appointment for Julia to get on birth control. Is Betty insane? She is more meddlesome than Debbie. Then we find out that Julia has a split personality and one personality is a bitch
Jovi & Yara
Jovi is 29 and lives in NOLA where he works in “underwater robotics.” He works on boats as an underwater diver for pipeline and stuff. He works for weeks on and four weeks off and travels to lots of different countries. Yara is 25 and from Ukraine. On one of his off months, Jovi went to meet Yara in Budapest. Jovi is beer and camouflage. Yara is fancy heels and expensive handbags. She a typical gold digger. He’s been to Ukraine multiple times since and taken her to the Dominican Republic and Bali. Yara got pregnant after six months. He took her to Cuba and proposed to her when they were scuba diving. Yara has her meal ticket and the green card will happen shortly.
Or not. After they applied for the K-1 visa, Yara lost the baby. Allegedly. Jovi’s mom is shocked that Jovi isn’t marrying a nice southern girl. Mama also know the reputation of Ukrainian women and so does Jovi. Jovi will be working one month on, one month off during their 90 days so they will only have about 45 actual days together. This is already ridiculous. Jovi doesn’t seem all that interested in getting married. Jovi’s friends don’t see this working out. Jovi is a party boy with tons of stripper friends. Nevertheless, Jovi follows Yara’s orders and goes to by her flowers before picking her up at the airport. It is his first time buying flowers.
Jovi seems happy to see Yara but Yara seems Ukrainian. I get it the flight was long. But she is already calling Jovi cheap. In her interviews she can’t name a single thing she loves about Jovi. She not even sure if she loves him at all. Yep! Ukrainian here to snatch a green card and run. I don’t think she even likes him.
Zied & Rebecca
Rebecca is 49 and lives in Woodstock, Georgia. She works at a fast food chicken shack. I need to go try out Joella’s chicken. Rebecca is addicted to tattoos. She is quickly running out of skin to add them. Her boyfriend is Zied. He is 27 years old and from Tunisia. Rebecca has been divorced three times. This is Rebecca’s second time bringing an Arab man who was half her age to the US. They have been on a previous season when she visited Tunisia. It didn’t go so well, but Zied proposed anyway.
It seems like Rebecca’s lease is expiring so she was planning for them to move in with her daughter and future son-in-law. Zied doesn’t want to move in there. He wants their own place. He is not comfortable with there being another man in the house. Rebecca’s daughter is not happy that she is bringing a second very young Muslim over to Georgia. How can she afford 20-30K on the visa and not be able to rent her own apartment?
Mike & Natalie
Mike is 35 and from Sequim, Washington. This is another returning couple whose time on their first season was fraught with arguments. He lives in the country on 27 acres of land with his uncle, Beau. Natalie is another one from Ukraine. Mike is an atheist and this really bothers Natalie. He left Ukraine in a fight with Natalie and she gave back the ring. Also, Natalie claims that Mike cheated on her with one of his female “friends.” It seems they want to give it another shot. She got her K-1 visa. She is thrilled. Mike seems indifferent about it. Actually, he is beyond indifferent. He’s not excited about her coming at all. He refers to her coming as the “hail mary” of their relationship.
Mike goes to get a haircut and talks his stylist about Natalie coming. She is way more excited than he is. Is it me or do Natalie and Mike not even like each other? They both seem miserable with each other. Did they just want another season? Right before she comes she tells Mike that is is not comfortable living in the house with uncle Beau. I thought before he lived in the barn or something on the property last season and not in the house. This seems produced. I can see how Natalie would not want to fly to another country and live with the crazy uncle.
Next time on 90 Day Fiance we meet three more couples including Tarik and Hazel. Hazel is from the Philippines and is bisexual and wants to add a female to the marriage. She was never able to express her sexuality in the Philippines. That should be interesting. This is a brand new season and choices are limited on Tuesday nights right now. So it’s a good place to start watching 90 Day Fiance with us!
