I’m going to begin another 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days Recap using the First look.
It’s an entire hour long. It was only a half and hour. But the second half hour is what I hope is a sneak peak of the David and Annie spinoff. IT WAS SO GOOD! Apparently, David And Annie: After The 90 Days airs on TLC Mondays at 9:00 p.m. ET. Also it looks like Loren And Alexei also have a spinoff immediately following. I haven’t caught that one yet. UPDATE! The first season of David And Annie is on TLC On Demand. I watched them all. They were REALLY GOOD. We need to watch more TLC and less Bravo. The shows there are way better.
Gino & Jasmine
Gino and Jasmine arrive at her mother’s how so he can meet her and also Jasmine’s sister. So far, the whole meeting the family scenes have not gone well at all this season. There are also ZERO couples to root for this season. Jasmine’s sister is young. Jasmine’s mom is basically the same age as Gino. She is not thrilled to learn he doesn’t take his hat off in public. Even for prayers. Gino gets to pray with his hat on. But she is displeased.
But Gino, says he can’t tell if she likes him or not. This reminds me of a guy I used to date. He was a very smart engineer who loved movies. Like went to the movies multiple times a week. I would always fall asleep at some point, which he hated. So we were watching some movie and in the first five minutes I said, “Those two are definitely going to hook up.” He was shocked when they did. He had no idea how I knew. Gino, reminds me of him.
Gino asks Jasmine’s mother if she had lots of boyfriends growing up. She says no. She would not allow it. Then her mom brings out photo albums from Jasmine’s past. Gino awkwardly asks her for permission to marry Jasmine. Her mom doesn’t want her move to the US. But, she tells Jasmine to do whatever she wants. She tells Gino to take care of her daughter. Jasmine herself is not ready for a proposal just yet. I need less of these two. Can we just get this damn proposal over with? Everyone of the Americans who call home are being told to leave the relationship. Yet, they feel the need to propose.
Ben & Mahogany
Ben is still coping with all of the things about Mahogany that don’t add up. Am I nuts or was the surfboard that was at the AirBnB where Mahogany was claiming she was living at the exact same surfboard near the pool where Ben was updating his friend? Anyway, it’s the day after the weird “not her home” home visit, and today they are going to meet with two of her good friends. One of the “good friends” only found out about Ben very recently. This Mahogany girl full of it. The friends say that Mahogany is a trustworthy and reliable friend. I don’t think so.
Then, he asks them if there is something he should know as her new boyfriend. They had no idea he was her “boyfriend.” He asks Mahogany if he is just a friend or her boyfriend. She says he never asked her to be his girlfriend, so they are friends. He says that they had been planning marriage and a family in his version of the one on one interview. He’s very hurt. Word on the Twatter is that a couple got fired from this show before it aired and These two were last minute additions and are faking the whole thing. Ben is really confused. He reads old texts about between these two that reaffirm that she loves him.
Jesus Take The Wheel
So now they are going on a trip. A trip I am sure production planned. It’s an awkward trip. Eventually, they start talking about Jesus. That seems to break the ice. Jesus needs to explain Mahogany’s hair to me. And why Ben is back in the saddle again with Mahogany as if she isn’t a lying liar who lies. Perhaps it is the free trip to the Sechura Desert? Because it is stunningly beautiful. Ben confronts her about the whole “just friends” things. She brings up the fact that he has mentioned two failed relationships and they were never his fault. And just like that, Ben is over her again. Relationships should not be this hard. It looks like Ben might be done next week?
Memphis & Hamza
I don’t know a lot of Arabic, but, I’d think Tunisian Arabic and Libyan Arabic would be similar enough that I could recognize a few words. But, not really. Tunisians seem to mix Arabic with French. It’s interesting. Because I am only slightly less illiterate in French and I took that for years. One of my greatest failures is not learning any language fluently. Hell, even my English kind of sucks. Anyway, these to people who somehow hate each other but are considering marriage intrigue me.
So, despite “talking to each other through a translator all the time, they decide to meet with a live and in person translator. And, frankly he misses some of the subtleties in his translations. Hamza doesn’t understand the concept of co-parenting. Also he really needs her to stop yelling. Somehow, it all ends well. For now. I don’t see Hamza as someone who is brave enough to leave his country and family to move to the other side of the world.
It’s a road trip episode for most of the couples. Hamza takes Memphis to a beautiful some beautiful Tunisian ruins. Hamas changes his clothes outside to get dressed up. To go to …farther up the ruins? Is this a proposal? It IS! It was very sweet and romantic. We literally went from “I’m afraid of you” to a full blown proposal in two episodes.
Usman & Kimberly
Kimberly learns that Usman was cheating on her with Zara and the relationship overlapped with theirs. Zara is the woman Usman’s latest song is about. Kimberly is over it and wants to change her flight to go home. Well, I mean it was a lovely visit to the spice farm other than that. 🙂 Limberly goes back to the hotel to pack up and leave. Usman shows up with his play station and whatever other crap that she gave him. As if she would want to deal with checking all that stuff again. She does keep the laptop. And she keeps packing. Usman feels like Kimberly is getting aggressive just like Baby Girl Lisa. They are both very similar.
Mike & Ximena
We pick back up with Ximena telling Mike she is not in love with him. I think that was pretty obvious. Ximena gives him the ” I love you but I am not IN LOVE with you.” Speech. Mike is sent to sleep in the kids room after a very awkward side hug. The producer is worried about Mike and checks on him. Meanwhile Ximena is making Instagram photos with her kids, smiling like nothing happened. Mike calls his friend and asks his girlfriend who speaks Spanish to talk with Ximena. His friend says he needs to leave.
Mike, Ximena, and his friend’s girlfriend get on facetime so that she can interpret what she is feeling about Mike. As if it was not obvious. She doesn’t want to really talk to the girl. But, she does. She goes on a tirade about Mike staring at her when she sleeps, and being sloppy, and piggish, and burping a lot. The friend tells Mike he should not be with her. She basically said he was disgusting. Then, she asks Ximena if she feels bad to taking Mike’s money if she is not really interested in him. She says no, if he stops paying she can go back to work. She quit working because he was paying for everything. Mike hears the brutal from his friend and is ready to come home. I’m not sure he will follow through with that.
