If you don’t believe the delusion is real, you didn’t see last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days. Whew, chile, the desperation was at an all-time high yesterday. There was everything from a new couple introduced to jealousy, strategy and questionable intentions. All I can say is this episode gave me everything I needed in a shit show and more. Some people have even haven taken off their rose colored glasses and are starting to see that everything that glitters isn’t gold. Let’s see how long that lasts.
Avery Warner & Ash Naeck finally meet. Stephanie Matto risks her health to travel to Australia. David makes plans to go to Ukraine. Geoffrey Paschel questions Varya Malina’s intentions and Ed Brown worries about Rose and her family’s motives. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days recap!
Lisa, 52 (York, Pa.) & Usman “SojaBoy,” 30 (Nigeria)
Lisa Hamme finally got her groove back with her “baby love” Usman. I think she enjoyed herself much more than her Nigerian king. Who first said she looked 70, then said he meant Lisa is 70% good enough for him.
Usman then begins his day trying to avoid more alone time with her by bringing his friends to breakfast. She quickly gets a dose of reality when she finds out that Usman lied about not needing his mom’s blessing for marriage. According to his friends, it’s unlikely Lisa will receive the blessing, Usman’s mom doesn’t trust white people.

Usman is realizing that Lisa is not only jealous, but even more controlling in person. He admits to his friends that she is more difficult than he expected. He now worries if introducing her to his family and music colleagues is a good idea. Of course it’s not a good idea! Lisa is not the fun and friendly type and she has no problem telling people she wants ALL of Usman’s time.
Darcey, 45(Connecticut) & Tom, 39 (England)
Darcey Silva, her sister and friend go to the spa to let off some steam. Instead of relaxing, they talk about the pictures of Tom Brooks and a mysterious woman. Darcey breaks down in tears pondering whether she should go to meet Tom in New York.
In her mind, it will only be a repeat of the breakup with Jesse Meester. Something tells me this meeting will definitely be interesting. Darcey will be a hot mess trying to prove she has it all together while Tom acts as if he is God’s gift to women.
Geoffrey, 41 (Knoxville, Tenn.) & Varya, 30 (Russia)
Although Geoffrey woke up alone, he seems to have loosened up just a bit. Varya plans a day full of sightseeing and the two finally seem a more comfortable around one another. She even decides to stay the night at the hotel after some prodding from Geoffrey.
The night must have gone pretty well because the couple wake up in bed together looking quite disheveled. Things quickly go downhill when Varya goes to bathroom and discovers a comb with the name of Geoffrey’s ex on it. She was so upset she immediately threw away the offensive comb. When Geoffrey realizes they are fighting over a comb, he dismisses Varya as being ridiculous and quickly retrieves it. She went from wanting to introduce him to her friends to a jealous tirade in less than 2 minutes.

Varya takes Geoffrey to see her home for the first time. Her accommodations are meager, to say the least. She has no bed, bathroom sink and has exposed wiring in her house. She reveals that she decided to stop home improvements to save money to prepare to move to the United States when she began talking to Geoffrey. This calculated plan is not lost on Geoffrey, he immediately questions her true intentions. Well no one can accuse Geoffrey of being a complete fool, he saw right through her plan after seeing how she lived.
Ed, 54 (San Diego) & Rosemarie, 23 (Philippines)
Ed plays the role of the perfect gentleman when he and Rose arrive at the hotel. He insists on a room with two beds and tells Rose he wants to take things slow. More like, he is waiting on her to get a STD test before he initiates sex.
Ed is realizing that Rose may not be who he thinks she is after a day at the market. While trying to buy items from vendors, Rose aggressively grabs money from his wallet and just hands it out. Rose cavalierly tells people to keep Ed’s change, as if he is incapable of making his own transactions.

Ed becomes so frustrated with the situation he wants to leave and go back to the hotel. Rose clearly thinks she hit the jackpot. She doesn’t realize she is looking less like an innocent villager and more like a gold digger.
Avery, 32 (Seattle) & Ash, 38 (Australia)
Avery finally arrives in Australia to meet her long distance love, Ash. They both have been waiting 9 months to see one another and the sparks are still there when they meet. Ash has rented an Airbnb during Avery’s stay. Apparently, his brother doesn’t feel comfortable with Avery staying at their home. I wonder if that was truly his brother’s decision or Ash’s given all the women he buys flowers for routinely.
At least, Avery has the good sense to take things slow. She makes it clear she doesn’t want to have sex right away and shoos Ash to his own bedroom. In an effort to be romantic, Ash gifts Avery with the symbol of death, black roses. What could be more sexy than death roses from the man you love? SMH…
David, 60 (Nevada) & Lana, 27 (Ukraine)
We finally get to meet the last couple of this season of 90 Day Fiance Before the 90 Days. David met Lana through a Ukrainian dating website after a series of failed relationships led him to search for love abroad. The two quickly fell in love and have now been together for seven years. Their communication has only been through chat on the website which David has to pay for by the minute. When he asks Lana to speak through other means she gets angry. Chile, please! Is this guy serious?
The Nevada native has tried to meet Lana in person three different times, but each trip fell through. Lana has had a different excuse every time she has stood him up and David still wants to be with her.
David has spent $100,000 over the course of their relationship. He has decided to go to Ukraine one last time, but claims he will cut Lana off for good if she stands him up again. I’m willing to bet good money that being stood up again is in his future.
Stephanie, 29 (New York) & Erika, 24 (Australia)
Stephanie video calls Erika Owens and admits that she didn’t reveal the extent of their relationship to her family. She will be travelling to meet Erika in Australia in a few days and is nervous they won’t have the same rapport in person.
Stephanie finishes packing before heading to the airport. Seeing the amount of medication on her bed was a reality check on just how much risk she is taking just to meet Erika. Hopefully, the trip goes well because I feel Stephanie’s heart will be broken if it doesn’t. It’s obvious she is very emotionally invested in this relationship.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK USMAN WILL BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO DEAL WITH LISA AND HER INCESSANT DEMANDS DURING THIS TRIP? IS ROSE USING ED? WHAT DID YOU THINK OF LANA AND DAVID? DO YOU THINK STEPHANIE AND ERIKA ARE A GOOD MATCH?
