I’m not sure why episode two of 90 Day Fiance is starting at 10 pm on a Friday night, but apparently that is happening. I am looking forward to this 90 Fiance recap because Bilal already done lost his mind in episode one and is going to “test” Shaeeda by picking her up at the airport in a white van instead of his fancy car. Every woman in America knows never to get in a white van! Then he’s going to take her to his dilapidated childhood home instead of his actual house in a decent neighborhood. Who does that?Well hell this is just a fucking FIRST LOOK. At least I got a head start because Sundays are very busy. It looks like the other hour is 90 Day Diaries Ukraine. I already watched that On Demand. It is very interesting and worth a watch.
EDITED: At least I got to watch the first thirty minutes of this episode. I missed all of Shaeeda’s reaction to the van and the house! The full episode didn’t tape for me. So I am moving along to the next episode.
Shaeeda & Bilal
We are starting with the big hoax. Not to be confused with the big lie I heard about all day in the hearing for Marjorie Taylor Green all day. And. I. Am. Here. For. It! No wonder Bilal has to look for someone overseas. Off we go in the scary white van to the airport dresses in a t-shirt and jeans. Is he going to take her for dinner at Shoney’s? Is Shoney’s still a thing? They have a kiss made for a movie she dropped her bags and they ran toward each other. SIGH. In her first talking outside of the airport she says she is looking forward to seeing his house and his car. This feels so scripted. She calls it a Scooby Doo Van. They are really over playing this scene.
Why the heck is Shaeeda apologizing to to Bilal! I cannot believe he thinks this “joke” is funny. Ah she doesn’t really mean it, she just trying to maintain the peace until she can figure out what to do. Finally, he is going to take her to their real house. She loves the house but is upset that he didn’t trust her enough to take her there.
Yve & Mohamed
Who dis? We didn’t see these two on the first episode. Yve is 48 an lives in Albuquerque New Mexico. She is a massage therapist and acupuncturist. She has an 8 year old son, Theron who has autism, Downs syndrome and stage two kidney disease. WOW. That’s a lot. Anyone of the three would be very difficult to deal with alone. He has to be catheterized every three hours. His dad was apparently unable to handle it and she has been raising him alone since he was born. But, he does still have visitation. Mohamed is 25 with very shredded body. He’s Egyptian. She met him online and went to Egypt to meet him and they got engaged.
After two years of waiting for a K-1 visa he is finally coming to the USA. Yve’s BFF is concerned about his age and also her cleaning out her closet to get rid of any “inappropriate” clothing due to his religion. Mohammed is thrilled that in the US they can kiss in public. He’s going from living with his mother to moving in with his fiancé. Mohamed tells us in an interview that he wants his wife to take care of him like his mother and make all the meals. That’s not happening. Yve has a full time job. Somebody needs to bring home the bacon. He’s going to have to learn how to take care of the house.
Emily & Kobe
Kobe doesn’t seem that into Emily. But, he is dying to see his son, Koban, for the first time. But, Emily isn’t taking him straight to the house. She wants one night in a hotel room for them to have sex. He’s upset and this is an awful thing for her to do to him. She is so selfish. Who keeps a father from his two year old son that he has never met! She’s heartless. But, he is going along with her plan.
Then, they start their date night at a nice restaurant. Kobe is uncomfortable because he is the only black person there. Emily says there are not a lot of black people in Salina at all. He talks about modeling in China were there are not many black people at all and how the Chinese would stare at him because many had never seen a black person before. They made him feel less than. Emily points out that there is another black man here. Emily wants to know how much money he brought with him. He says it is a surprise. She wants a good engagement ring. They are already arguing about money. So much for date night.
Miona & Jibri
Word on the curb is that these two have been married for two years. Miona is hellbent on moving to LA as soon as possible. The thing is they have NO MONEY! And Jibri just keeps spending on gifts for her. The Kim Kardashian wannabe arrives at the South Dakota ranch house and she is already pressuting Jibri to move to LA. She’s about to meet his mama and learn the reality of living on a ranch. His parents first impressions of Miona is they like her. Then, things start going downhill. Jibri’s mother is a therapist. She immediately starts listing the chores. Miona hates it already. She says they can’t be married until they get out of the house. The thing is THEY ARE MARRIED.
Arilea & Biniyam
Ari is in Ethiopia again. I feel like I have been watching these two for years and they still have not gotten married? WTF? Bini FINALLY has a passport. I’m not sure if the baby is in Ethiopia or the US with his grandparents. Oh the baby is there Bini finally got his K-1 and they are heading to New Jersey in three days. Also, check out Starcasm’s exclusive post about Ari’s parents filing for bankruptcy and losing their house to foreclosure! Wow! It seems like he hasn’t told anyone he is moving the to US in three days! He tells his friends and they don’t think his relationship is strong enough to make such a drastic move. He’s afraid to tell his family.
It’s time to tell the family. It’s their last night. There is a party for Bini’s music video where he plans to tell the family. His sisters arrive and won’t hug Ari because of Covid. I can understand that. But, also, they just don’t like her. So they play the music video and everyone dances and is happy but that won’t last for long. He tells his family he is sorry he kept the news from them, and the drops the bomb that he is moving to America the next day. This sisters are pissed and they blame this on Ari. They call her a control freak. Well, they are not wrong about that. They also blame Ari for not telling them. Um, that is Bini’s job. They are HIS family. Then Ari says she is happy not to be around them anymore. She says she is not marrying them, she is marrying Biniyam. Then one of the sister throws a full glass of wine in her face.
The sisters tell the camera that there is a zero percent chance they will make it the 90 days.
Kara & Guillermo
Are these two even on this show? I haven’t seen any of their story so far. Wait! I think he is a waiter that she met on vacation? We just didn’t see them this episode.
Next Time: Kobe finally gets to meet his son. Miona struggles living with Jibri’s parents and is angry that Kobe and his best friend are getting their band back together. Shaeeda meets Bilal’s family over an awkward dinner. We finally see Kara and Guillermo and they are fighting over him wanting to buy a computer. It looks like there is another couple I don’t know about.
