Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days, was filled with confessions, fights, and drama. There were several scenes where I found myself just shaking my head. Why do some of these people endure this craziness? If it were me, I would be on the next thing smoking. Nothing is worth allowing someone to make you look like an absolute idiot on national television.
Zied’s sister gives Rebecca the cold shoulder. Tom Brooks is seeing double after witnessing Darcey Silva ‘s twin dynamic. Benjamin is blamed for upsetting Akinyi. Grab a snack and let’s dive into the recap!
REBECCA, 47 (GEORGIA) AND ZIED, 26 (TUNISIA)
Rebecca and Zied head to the market to buy a gift for dinner later that evening. It will be Rebecca’s first time meeting Zied’s overprotective sister. She is nervous his sister will stand in the way of a proposal. Rebecca looks like a fish out of water as she watches Zied’s sister cook dinner. His sister is not happy about an American woman taking her only brother from his family.
At dinner, Rebecca is grilled about her past relationships and her feelings for Zied. She literally answers “I don’t know” for most questions. This dinner is going downhill fast. Rebecca should be more worried about revealing her secrets to Zied than his family. She has caused him to break several rules in his religion without his knowledge or consent. I can only imagine how he will respond when he finds out that she is still married.
Rebecca tells Zied that she fears he might leave her. They haven’t known each other very long and there many things he still doesn’t know. She has two major secrets that she hasn’t shared yet. She worries Zied will not love her after he finds out. Rebecca reveals she had a relationship with a woman. Zied says he still loves her, but you can tell he is taken off guard.
ANGELA, 53 (HAZLEHURST, GA) AND MICHAEL, 29 (NIGERIA)
It’s only Angela Deem’s second day in Nigeria and she has already gone crazy. She hired an SUV to drive her back to the hotel after her fall out with Michael Ilesanmi. Unfortunately for the driver, he was forced to listen to her rant and rave the entire ride. Michael attempts to placate Angela with a teddy bear and two cokes, but it only seems to infuriate her further. He sits in the lobby like a lost puppy after being screamed at and banned from the room. She then dumps all of his clothes out of his suitcase in the hallway. Michael, blink twice if you need help.
Michael is forced to take a hoe bath outside after he had to sleep in his car all night. Angela decides she wants to get her hair braided, which is only a ploy for more strangers to listen to her whine about Michael.
He attempts to reconcile by bringing her a cake to the salon. Angela is not having it! She takes the cake and smashes it in his face. WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!! Okay, Michael, please stop letting this old cougar make a fool out of you. I know you want to get to America, but this is not the way. Angela’s behavior is downright abusive and disgusting!
BENJAMIN, 33 (PHOENIX, AZ) and AKINYI, 25 (KENYA)
Akinyi’s brother is still holding Benjamin hostage. After an unsuccessful attempt at introducing her boyfriend to her father, Akinyi just wants to be alone. When Benjamin returns to the house alone, Akinyi’s brother blames him for upsetting his sister. I’m sorry, but this man deserves at least a participation award for dealing with all this. If he doesn’t leave with a wife, give him a key chain or something. I would have been ready to leave as soon as I found out I being forced to stay with the brother.
Benjamin is so frazzled by his predicament. He wakes up reading the Bible and singing hymns. He sends a text to Akinyi hoping to find out what happened the night before. She reveals that her brother told her she embarrassed the family by bringing Benjamin home. She was also upset because her father refused to meet her boyfriend. In her culture, the head of the household needs to bless a potential union. Benjamin is still hopeful that he can potentially win over Akinyi’s family.
DARCEY, 44 (CONNECTICUT) AND TOM, 39 (UNITED KINGDOM)
Darcey drags Tom to Albania to meet her sister and her fiancé. She is so desperate to flaunt Tom that she overlooks the fact, he doesn’t truly want to go. Instead of giving them time to freshen up and get some rest, Darcey insists they meet her sister at the hotel. We all know how Tom feels about not freshening up after a flight. I don’t see this going well.
Once they get out of the cab, Darcey has to put on her heels in the middle of the street. She isn’t going to risk being shorter than her sister. Tom’s irritation becomes more apparent when they have to wait for her sister. After waiting for almost an hour and not receiving a response, Tom is ready to leave.
After a long day of travel, Tom wants nothing more than a meal and sleep. Darcey’s twin, Stacey, and her fiancé finally show up, much to his dismay. Things start off rocky when Tom admits he didn’t want to come because he already had another vacation planned. When Darcey talks about how Tom is her prince charming, he makes a quick exit. Tom goes outside to smoke a cigarette, which is clearly just an excuse to escape.
Darcey and Tom go sightseeing with Stacey and her fiancé. It’s painfully clear that Darcey is trying to force her relationship to be on the same level as her sister’s. Things get awkward when Bride Wars part 2, begins to play out. The only issue is Darcey isn’t actually engaged. At one point, Darcey almost has a meltdown when she realizes Tom is witnessing her crazy. Newsflash… Tom knows you are crazy.
CAESAR, 46 (NORTH CAROLINA) AND MARIA, 28 (UKRAINE)
After discovering that Maria’s flight was canceled due to insufficient funds, Caesar is frustrated. When he calls Maria begging her to come, she makes it clear she won’t be getting on a plane. The call ends when she breaks up with him.
Ummm… if he truly spent all of that money, I would have had a few choice words for her. Beginning with SEND ME MONEY BACK B!tch! I still believe this story-line is fake or the timeline was dragged out for the show. Better luck next time, Caesar. Find a gold digger that at least lives in your city.
TIMOTHY, 38 (NORTH CAROLINA) AND JENIFFER, 25 (COLOMBIA)
After having a drink thrown in his face, Timothy attempts to smooth things over with Jeniffer. He asks her to meet him in the park with her adorable daughter. Good move Tim. It may be safer with a child present.
Jeniffer seems much calmer today, but is still upset that he is talking with his ex. Timothy claims he doesn’t have feelings for her, but he never got closure. After an apology, Jeniffer agrees to move forward with their relationship.
I’m sorry, but he seems to seek out women with children in an attempt to become a ready-made family. There is nothing wrong with dating a woman with a child, but it seems like that is what he pursues. I am watching you, Timothy.
AVERY, 19 (OHIO) and OMAR, 24 (SYRIA)
Avery’s mom, Teri, asks her daughter some tough questions when she returns from dinner. Teri wonders if Omar only wants to marry her daughter for a visa. Avery becomes emotional and wants to prove her mother wrong. She believes Omar loves her and it’s only a coincidence he was on a site with American women. Whew chile, this is deep.
Teri definitely brings up some good points. I only wish she was able to communicate them BEFORE her daughter planned on marrying a stranger. I have no idea what Omar’s true intentions are, but I wouldn’t allow my child to marry someone they barely knew at 19. At that age, we all thought we knew everything, but Avery has much to learn about life.
TELL US- DO YOU OMAR IS USING AVERY FOR A VISA? DO YOU THINK ANGELA IS ABUSING MICHAEL? HOW DO YOU THINK ZIED WILL REACT TO FINDING OUT REBECCA IS STILL MARRIED? SHOULD BENJAMIN BE WORRIED? WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT DARCEY’S COMPETITIVE ATTITUDE TOWARDS HER SISTER? WHICH 90 DAY FIANCE BEFORE THE 90 DAYS STORY LINE IS YOUR FAVORITE?
