Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance definitely helped us fill in some gaps about some of these relationships! We learned some key details that only led me to believe that most of these 90 Day Fiance couples are doomed. I know most of these people don’t want to be alone, but geez, there has to be a better way.
Syngin Colchester prepares for a month without Tania Maduro. Anna Campisi worries about her children’s relationship with Mursel Mistanoglu. Blake and Jasmin‘s living situation changes unexpectedly. Michael and Juliana discuss their financial future. Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi are back. Let’s get straight into the recap!
Anna, 38 (Bellevue, Nebraska) and Mursel, 38 (Turkey)
Anna has decided to move forward with this shit show of a wedding. Now that her children know they are being kept Mursel’s dirty little secret, they have very little respect for him. I find it shocking that Anna can’t comprehend why her sons are so resentful of Mursel. Hell, I am an adult and if I was kept a secret, I wouldn’t want to be around him either.
Things come to a head when Anna takes Mursel and her sons to get fitted for their tuxedos. Mursel confronts Anna’s oldest son about his treatment of him. I must admit at times I do feel sorry for Mursel, especially since he can barely communicate with anyone. But I feel even more sorry for the children who have to witness their mother marry someone who doesn’t fully accept them. Despite his religious background and culture, the children only understand they are a secret. It’s clear the kids aren’t fans of their potential step-dad and want him to return to Turkey as soon as possible.
Anna takes her kids to the park to discuss her relationship with Mursel. Her youngest son worries that Mursel will leave. Meanwhile, the two oldest hope that he does. This is a really sad situation. Anna is fighting for a relationship that she isn’t even sure of herself. Let’s be real, she hasn’t had a full conversation of any substance with Mursel since he arrived. If bees are the only thing holding this relationship together, then they are in for a rude awakening.
Angela, 53 (Hazlehurst, Georgia) and Michael, 29 (Nigeria)
Michael and Angela are back in all of their insane glory. You may remember this couple from other 90 Day Fiance franchise appearances. But, this time Angela has a fewer wrinkles after getting a ton of Botox injected in her face. She is in wedding mode while Michael prepares for his visa interview.
Michael visits his uncle and aunt’s house to visit the children in his family and talk about his upcoming move. He then visits with friends from the United States to get advice on what to expect living there.
I’m sure when Angela hears there were women at this meeting that she will call off the wedding. Angela’s age and her ability to have children becomes a topic of conversation. I can just see the steam rising from her ears when she sees this footage. If anyone knows Angela, she wants COMPLETE control of Michael and all of his time.
Tania, 29 (Colchester, Connecticut) and Syngin, 29 (South Africa)
Syngin and Tania have lunch with her mother and discuss her upcoming trip to Costa Rica. He will basically be her mother’s handyman while she is gone. I finally see where Tania gets her demanding demeanor. Tania’s mother speaks to Syngin as if he was a 16-year-old boy while covering her expectations.
As Tania prepares to leave, Syngin realizes he will be living in that shed all alone with no friends or family. Tania is sad to leave, but she isn’t going to let her fiancé stop her from a trip of a lifetime. Oh, Tania.

Although Syngin is being supportive, I think this decision will ultimately affect their relationship. Tania even dares to call Syngin “clingy.” Does this woman not realize that he left everything he knew and loved behind for her? Of course, he is going to want to talk and be around you when there isn’t much else he can do until he is allowed to work. The two share an emotional goodbye and Syngin gives Tania a gift to remember him by.
Emily, 28 (Portland, Oregon) and Sasha, 31 (Russia)
Emily and Sasha prepare for their trip to America. Sasha has packed little to nothing and doesn’t seem excited at all. Emily may want to get ready to be ex-wife number three. Who moves to a new country with only a few outfits? Sasha clearly always has an exit strategy with women.

Emily is ready to tear her hair out because she is so nervous about her family’s journey to America. Sasha’s parents make everyone sit before the trip, so the spirits don’t get upset. They may need to worry more about their son’s “love them and leave them” spirit. Sasha cries as he says goodbye to his parents and his country.
Blake, 29 (Los Angeles, California) and Jasmin, 27 (Finland)
Blake takes his blow up doll Jasmin to meet his parents and show her new living situation. Shortly after they arrive, his parents drop a huge bomb on them. Due to their religious beliefs, they will not allow Jasmin and Blake to live together under their roof. Not only can they not live together, Blake can’t even be in the apartment with his fiancée unless his parents are there.

I think the only reason that Jasmin cares is because she doesn’t really know his parents and will be forced to interact with them. She probably is relieved that she won’t have to endure Blake every day and NIGHT. I have no idea what he sees in this woman. She has the personality of a robot. She literally has zero interest in getting to know his friends or family.
Michael, 41 (Greenwich, Connecticut) and Juliana, 23 (Brazil)
Michael wants to give Juliana the wedding of her dreams and seeks out the help of a wedding planner. During the consultation, we learn that Juliana has actually been married before.
Michael is going to go bankrupt trying to impress this woman. He is quoted $50,000 to $100,000 for 40 people and doesn’t blink an eye. They better go to the justice of the peace and call it a day. Juliana grew up poor. I doubt she will complain if they have a more low key wedding. Spending that type of money for someone you have to marry within 90 days just seems ridiculous to me.
Michael’s ex-wife/best friend, Sara, inquires about the wedding and even offers to officiate the wedding. Umm… no, you are doing way too much, girl. Michael actually thinks it’s a good idea. When he asks Juliana she quickly says “no.”
Sara goes even further when she asks about whether Michael plans to have a prenuptial agreement. Why he would have this conversation in front of his ex-wife is beyond me. Juliana is completely confused and suggests they talk about it later. Chile, please Michael’s ex knows exactly what she is doing. She drops a bomb and politely leaves as it’s about to explode. This woman is no amateur!
TELL US- DO YOU THINK MICHAEL AND JULIANA SHOULD GET A PRENUP? HOW LONG DO YOU THINK JASMIN WILL BE ABLE TO LIVE WITH BLAKE’S RELIGIOUS PARENTS? IS TANIA MAKING A MISTAKE LEAVING SYNGIN FOR A MONTH? DO YOU THINK ANNA IS DISREGARDING HER CHILDREN’S FEELINGS? DO YOU THINK SASHA WILL BE HAPPY WITH EMILY IN THE AMERICA?
