Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance The Other Way left me shaking my head in disbelief on more than one occasion. It’s hard to be empathetic to people who put themselves in questionable predicaments, then only expect positive results. I may be a skeptic, but some things are just obvious. I love the idea of having a happily ever after, but that doesn’t mean you can just defy all logic. Chile, I am SOOOO ready for the 90 Day Fiance The Other Way Tell All! It’s not that I want to say I told you so, but you know I will!!! Sorry, I’m just that petty.
A distraught Jenny Slatten finally leaves India. Deavan Clegg struggles during her traditional Korean wedding ceremony. Evelin is forced to decide if she wants to marry Corey. Tiffany worries about Ronald‘s recovery when she and her son leave South Africa.
Corey, 31 (Mill A, Washington) & Evelin, 26 (Ecuador)
Ugh… Corey only has a short time left on his visa and he is dead set on marrying his evil girlfriend, Evelin. He visits Evelin’s father and even digs a hole, all to ask for her hand in marriage. First, Corey I am going to need you to practice your Spanish, before you attempt to ask her dad for her hand. He is forced to use Google translator in order to ask for the blessing. Her father happily accepts Corey’s proposition, but warns him that Evelin is the one he will need to convince.
Corey plans a surprise proposal for Evelin. I am shocked Evelin allowed him to blindfold her. He takes her to a site where he has arranged a hot air balloon ride. She is terrified, but agrees to take the adventure with him. The sign that says “will you marry me?” is so far away that Evelin can’t see it from the balloon. He abandons that plan and decides to just walk her to the sign once they are back on land. The proposal was so sweet.
I felt horrible when EVILin began to question why he was proposing while he was on one knee. I thought Corey was going to cry. Finally, after a discussion, Evelin says “yes” all of a sudden. In a post interview, she reminded us all that although she said yes to an engagement, it doesn’t mean she is ready for a wedding. The surprises aren’t over. Corey carries his new fiancé to the beach for a private candlelight dinner with a private chef. He seems like such a great guy, I hope Evelin is worthy of him. Personally, I don’t think so. You shouldn’t have to convince anyone to want to marry you. But, it’s his mistake life!
Jenny, 60 (Palm Springs, California) & Sumit, 30 (India)
Jenny is finally packing up and preparing to leave India. I feel so sorry for this woman. I feel like Summit completely used her. He knew that she would only be able to stay for a short time. There was also no way they could have a real relationship given his current marriage. Summit visits to express his apologies for lying to Jenny. WHATEVER!!! I don’t want to hear it, Summit. You are trash for having this woman deplete her life savings for a promise of a lie.
Sadly, Jenny is still in love with him. She is actually comforting HIM and begging him to do whatever possible for them to be together. Chile, please! I don’t think I would have been able to even look at Summit without the urge to punch him in his face. Jenny, does your daughter-in-law need airfare money to go and kick his butt? I would be happy to take up a collection on her behalf.
Jenny and Summit share a heartfelt goodbye as she heads to the airport. He is unable to go with her because his family only allowed him one hour with Jenny before he had to return home. Jenny doesn’t want anyone to think she made a mistake being with him because she had the best 6 months of her life. Sorry, Jenny, but I do think you made a terrible mistake. Hopefully, you move forward with your happy memories and let this MARRIED man go.
Deavan, 22 (Salt Lake City, Utah) & Jihoon, 29 (South Korea)
Jihoon Lee’s parents throw the newlyweds a traditional wedding. Deavan is disappointed that the wedding is happening so quickly and that her family will be unable to attend. While changing into their wedding attire, everyone is impressed by how good Deavan looks. I was just impressed that her makeup didn’t look like it was done in a drunken stupor the way it usually does.
Deavan is a complete fish out of water. She can’t understand a word anyone is saying, let alone the traditions. At one point, she is asked to piggyback Jihoon to see how far he is able to carry her to determine if they will have a big house. I think a small house is definitely in their future. It isn’t until the end of the ceremony that she begins to embrace it and actually have fun. I’m not sure why, but the wedding seemed a lot more interesting than most American weddings I have attended.
Tiffany, 27 (Frederick, Maryland) & Ronald, 29 (South Africa)
Tiffany is worried that Ronald will relapse when she returns to the U.S. She invites over the director of the wellness center, Craigh, to help develop an action plan for him to cope. When she speaks to Craigh alone, it’s apparent he has more faith in Ronald than his own wife. Tiffany, Tiffany, Tiffany, why did you marry and get pregnant by someone you don’t trust? It just seems like they are doing everything backward.
Ronald takes Tiffany to the airport. Daniel has an emotional breakdown at the thought of leaving his “daddy” all alone. Ronald explains that their separation is only temporary and they will see each other again. Tiffany is sad to see her son so upset about Ronald, but she knows he isn’t happy in South Africa either. I just don’t understand why she didn’t just apply for his visa, before going through all of this. Why take this child through all of these emotional changes if you could potentially avoid it? Hopefully, Ronald goes straight to the wellness center and not the casino after watching his family leave.
After seeing the previews for the 90 Day Fiance The Other Way Tell All next week, I can’t wait to see the episode! I told you guys some of these people were smooth operators! It seems some of the happy couples, aren’t so happy anymore. Stay tuned for us break down all of the shocking moments!
