Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days, was packed full of drama and revelations. Many couples realize that their journey is about to get a lot more difficult as they attempt to start the K1 visa process. For some, there were breakups and for others makeups. This episode wrapped up the season and gave us Part 1 of the Tell All.
The couples must part ways, but not all couples handle the distance well. The cast sits down and gives an update on their relationships. Some of the most intense moments from the season are discussed. Let’s get straight into the recap!
DARCEY, 44 (CONNECTICUT) AND TOM, 39 (UNITED KINGDOM)
After riding high from a proclamation of love from Tom Brooks, Darcey Silva’s green-eyed monster rears its ugly head. Both sisters meet at the airport to ride home together after concluding trips with their men. During the ride home, Stacey inquires whether Darcey finally landed an engagement ring, but is shocked to find out she only received a key to Tom’s house. It must be a great feeling to know if you decide to fly over 8 hours, you can possibly get into your boyfriend’s house.
After getting dodged since she returned home, Darcey finally gets a hold of Tom via video chat. He is singing a much different tune than he was during their trip. Tom decides he can’t handle a long-distance relationship and would rather be just friends. He also reprimands her for calling and texting him repeatedly after he told her he would be unavailable to talk.
At this point, I expected black mascara to be running down her face and her infamous ugly cry. Surprisingly, she calmly accepted his decision. Could Darcey have grown up that quickly? Or did she keep it cute for the cameras then rage text him all night with a bottle of wine and a straw? Something tells me it was probably the latter, but we can dare to hope.
BENJAMIN, 33 (PHOENIX, AZ) and AKINYI, 25 (KENYA)
After an explosive fight with Akinyi over Benjamin’s neglect to tell his family he got married, Benjamin reluctantly informs them via text. Although this temporarily satisfies his new bride, most of his family is shocked by the news. The two share an emotional goodbye in the airport. Benjamin heads back to the U.S. to start the K1 visa process. It may take 10 years for him to afford to get Akinyi to America.
Unbeknownst to her, Benjamin can barely afford a taxi back home, let alone a visa. Not to mention, he is now in debt to Akinyi’s family for an unspecified amount for her dowry. I hope he likes Ramen because Hot Pockets will probably seem like a luxury with all of his new bills.
REBECCA, 47 (GEORGIA) AND ZIED, 26 (TUNISIA)
For some reason, Zied decides to propose to Rebecca despite the fact that she is still married. I guess that visa was too good to pass up. Zied claims he borrowed money from his sister to buy her engagement ring. Ummm… what did he do with the money he took from Rebecca the day he went looking for rings? Either way, something tells me this is a disaster waiting to happen.
Rebecca is basically reliving her relationship with her ex, whether she knows it or not. The only difference is Zied wears skinny jeans and isn’t skinny. At the airport, Zied tells Rebecca “soon you will see my face, all your life.” Am I the only one who found that creepy? Can you imagine waking up with him standing over you saying “you are mine.” She better hope her divorce is still on track when she returns to the U.S. Otherwise, Zied may bust out of his clothes like the Hulk out of jealousy.
ANGELA, 53 (HAZLEHURST, GA) AND MICHAEL, 29 (NIGERIA)
Angela Deem finally says goodbye to Michael Ilesanmi and Nigeria. She thinks their biggest obstacle moving forward will be having a baby. I find that hilarious given the plethora of issues that plague this relationship. Frankly, I am afraid for Michael. If he ever comes to America, I could see Angela on an episode of Snapped. He would basically be a prisoner in her house, forced to listen to her threatening him and growling in his face all day. Run, Michael, while you still can!
AVERY, 19 (OHIO) and OMAR, 24 (SYRIA)
Avery Mills informs Omar Albakour that the lawyer said his visa request will be denied due to the travel ban. She also won’t be able to move to Syria because it could hurt their case to get a waiver approved. Omar is visibly upset and doesn’t know if he could handle being away from his wife for years. He suggests that they move to Dubai for a better chance of being granted citizenship.
CAESAR, 46 (NORTH CAROLINA) AND MARIA, 28 (UKRAINE)
Ugh… Caesar is talking to Maria again with a renewed desperation and delusion. After an entire season of thinking Maria was a 50-year-old man, in his mother’s basement, she finally appears on camera. Although she isn’t attracted to Caesar, she likes how he treats her. Of course, most people would like to receive money with no strings attached.
Apparently, she is living quite the posh life off of Caesar’s money. Maria claims that she hasn’t received any money from any other men on the dating site. We would have to be fools to believe that. Caesar, please get some self-respect and start saving your money for retirement. Update: Maria didn’t bother to meet Caesar in Cuba and broke up with him shortly after filming. Is anyone surprised???
90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days Tell All- Part 1
It’s finally time to catch up with all our favorite couples on Part One of the Tell All. For some reason, Lollipop head Jesse Meester is invited. Clearly, the producers are hoping for Darcey to go off the rails and embarrass herself. Darcey shows up looking like she is fresh out of Dr. Miami’s office.
Angela looks like she came straight from hillbilly hell. She literally takes a purse full of items out of her breasts in front of a shocked Caesar and Darcey. This is going to be gooooddddddddd!
Right out of the gate, Tom is asked why he is at the Tell All if they broke up. Tom says they are working on things, but Darcey considers him her boyfriend. Hmmm… doesn’t look good if you aren’t even able to fully agree on your relationship status. Caesar is hurt about being the only cast member to not meet their significant other. Akinyi tells everyone not only did Benjamin smell when they first met, but he was also larger than she expected.
Jeniffer admits she would have thought Timothy was a “freak” if he showed up with a stalker shirt with her face on it like Zied. Sigh! No one can say this cast of foreigners doesn’t speak their mind. I can’t wait to hear all the embarrassing details to come.
Caesar is on the hot seat when everyone on the cast thinks he was used by Maria. Shockingly, Caesar agrees and thinks he should have stopped sending so much money. Things get cringy when everyone’s sex lives are highlighted. Caesar reveals he would have taken it slow the first night with Maria, but after that it would be “hammer time.” Chile please, he could have fed a starving man with the amount of gummy panties he had on hand in Mexico. There is no way he wouldn’t have pulled them out the first night.
Jeniffer admits she was shocked she and Timothy didn’t have sex, but Timothy is very respectful. That isn’t what she was saying all season.
Avery’s mom, Teri, joins the stage to discuss her daughter’s relationship with Omar. Avery gets emotional thinking about how the travel ban is forcing her to choose between her family and her husband. Teri admits she wants her family to stay together. But she doesn’t think Syria is a safe place for her daughter to live. Omar wants to move to another country once he receives his master’s degree. Angela has a lot to say about Avery’s situation and cuts her off several times. I can already tell all hell is about to break loose soon.
Backstage Rebecca goes off about Jeniffer’s comment about Zied. Timothy attempts to smooth things over by saying “freak” means something different in Spanish. What??????? When that doesn’t work, he confesses he also thinks it was weird for Zied to wear a shirt with Rebecca’s face on it. Avery is the only person who defends the gesture. Did Timothy forget that most people found HIM weird in general? A t-shirt should be the least of his concerns.
It’s apparent from watching Darcey and Tom interact that this relationship is a train wreck. These two literally don’t know anything about each other. Darcey had no idea Tom had been engaged twice. His sister, Emma, joins the conversation with a much more subdued makeup look via video chat. She believes that Darcey only wants an engagement ring and a man to tell her he loves her all the time. Well, I can’t disagree. But it just feels wrong coming out of Emma’s mouth. Does she think her out of shape brother is God’s gift to women? Obviously, he has some issues or ulterior motives if he even wanted to be with Darcey after the shit show of a season with Jesse.
