Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance wrapped up some loose ends and then unraveled a few others. I still have so many more questions. I can’t wait until the Tell All to fill in some of the missing pieces. Only time will tell if some of these couples have made the biggest mistakes of their lives. I told many of them to RUN, did anyone take my advice?
Several of the couples are out of time and must decide if they want to bite the bullet and get married. Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi have another setback. Mike‘s call to Natalie leaves some unanswered questions. Michael Jessen talks to his ex-wife, Sarah, about his prenup decision. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance recap!
Anna, 38 (Bellevue, Nebraska) and Mursel, 38 (Turkey)
Anna Campisi is racing against the clock to pick up Mursel Mistanoglu from the airport and make it to their wedding in a few hours. If anything doesn’t go as planned they risk not making their midnight deadline to get married. You may remember, Mursel was given a second chance to meet the stipulations of his K-1 Visa after deciding to return home to Turkey.
Anna is freaking out now that she only has two hours until her ceremony. Nothing has been done to set up before her guests arrive. Luckily, a few friends and family help, while she attempts to get ready for her special day. Clearly she picked the wrong friend to help her with her hair. The entire back of her head was a frizzy mess before she even walked outside.
Mursel requests to see Anna before the ceremony to follow the Turkish tradition to tie a red ribbon around her waist. In a sweet moment, her youngest son asks if he can walk her down the aisle. This small gesture made Anna happy, given her oldest son, Gino, refused to even attend the wedding. Talk about awkward. So Gino is just going to sit across the dinner table and ignore his new step-dad?
Hopefully, Anna and Mursel attempt to learn the same language at some point now that they are married. I could barely deal with all the crying and Google translation conversations all season.
Tania, 29 (Colchester, Connecticut) and Syngin, 29 (South Africa)
With only two weeks until the wedding, Syngin Colchester is still devastated that Tania Maduro doesn’t consider him a “soul mate.” When he speaks to her about his concerns, he is nearly in tears as he describes how her comments hurt him. Tania claims she isn’t really sure what “soul mates” mean but she believes in their love. Chile, please! Tania, don’t back track now, she knew exactly what she was saying. Despite his apprehension, Syngin still wants to get married, for some reason.
It’s Tania and Syngin’s wedding day and they are literally setting up everything themselves. If this is a backyard wedding, why the heck didn’t they do most of the work in advance? Guests are arriving as the bride and groom are still trying to unload tables and chairs. SMH… They finally finish in the nick of time, at the expense of actually taking a shower after all that manual labor.
I’m sorry, but if that was me, the wedding would have to start late. There is no way I wouldn’t have at least taken a quick shower. Surprisingly, despite its start, everything came together nicely for this evening wedding.
Syngin’s parents stayed up late in South Africa to attend via Skype. Instead of rings, they chose to get matching tattoos on their wedding finger. I really hope Syngin didn’t make a bad decision and mess up his family’s streak of no divorces in 500 years.
Blake, 29 (Los Angeles, California) and Jasmin, 27 (Finland)
Jasmin and Blake’s wedding day has finally arrived. She looks more like she is going to the club rather than her wedding. I’m still not sure why Blake decided to get married against the advice of his family and friends.
Nonetheless, I thought it was nice that people came to support their decision. Blake cries as he says his vows and Jasmin, per usual, has no real emotion. I know it was killing Jasmin to be in the company of other people outside of her family for that length of time.
Robert, 41 (Winter Park, Florida) and Anny, 30 (Dominican Republic)
Anny is excited for her wedding to Robert. After all the disrespect she has experienced from him and others in his life, I’m surprised she still wants to get married. Robert is so nervous that he contemplates turning around on his way to the ceremony. If anyone should be running, it’s Anny.
Anny looks beautiful in her dress and is escorted to the chapel by her handsome step-son to be, Bryson. In a shocking moment, when asked if someone objects, Robert says “I can’t do this right now.”

As I sit on the edge of my seat, Robert drops to one knee and places a ring on her finger and says “without doing this first”. Whew, Anny looked like she was scared that she was about to be left at the altar.
Mike, 34 (Seguim, Washington) and Natalie, 35 (Ukraine)
Mike calls Natalie to discuss their relationship after his disastrous trip. Natalie doesn’t seem to want to be bothered with him. She completely defends her weird behavior. She doesn’t seem to comprehend why Mike would be upset that she told 90 Day Fiance producers she didn’t love him.

To add insult to injury, she also tells him he “needs to be more strong and responsible.” She even alludes to trust issues between them. Did I miss something? Mike gets so upset he ends the call early and storms off camera. I have a feeling there is a lot that we aren’t aware of that has happened behind the scenes.
Angela, 53 (Hazlehurst, Georgia) and Michael, 29 (Nigeria)
Angela and Michael go see a registrant to discuss the marital process and its requirements in Nigeria. She is shocked to find out that their marriage requires a witness from the U.S in order for it to be deemed valid. She doesn’t know anyone who can afford to take a trip to Africa. Meanwhile, I’m still wondering how she can afford it.

Angela’s trip is coming to an end and she is returning to the U.S. with a heavy heart. At the airport, Michael presents his fiancé with matching gold chains that have each other’s name on them. I can see the glee in Angela’s eyes knowing that her man will now wear her name around his neck. She gets on the plane reinvigorated to continue to fight for Michael to live in America.
Michael, 41 (Greenwich, Connecticut) and Juliana, 23 (Brazil)
When Michael drops off his kids, he and his ex-wife Sarah talk about his wedding to Juliana Custodio. Very quickly the conversation takes a turn when she inquires about a prenuptial agreement. Michael reveals he decided not to get one because it was putting a “dark cloud” over their relationship. Insert eye roll emoji. This woman is way too involved in her ex-husband’s business. I understand protecting her children, but I feel she often oversteps her boundaries.
Who else can’t wait until the Tell All? The preview is explosive, to say the least. I will be tuning in with all my snacks for the tea! Tune in next Sunday for updates and revelations on all of the couples.
