How 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Season 8 Has Failed

90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Season 8 had potential, but it has unfortunately dropped the ball. With a record-breaking nine couples, this season could’ve offered many interesting storylines. Unfortunately, many of the couples instead fell flat, after dealing with the same repetitive drama. Four duos in particular made Season 8 difficult to watch, and it doesn’t seem like it will get better anytime soon.

The way Big Ed has treated Liz this season is unacceptable

Ed Brown and Liz Woods have always had a tumultuous relationship. Despite their problematic history, it’s been harder than ever to watch them on Season 8.

After a fight about taco pasta, Ed and Liz had a huge fight that ultimately led to their break-up. Ed canceled the wedding without consulting Liz first, which infuriated her even more. It was difficult to watch Liz beg Ed to stay with her after he had treated her poorly on many occasions. Despite putting her all into their relationship, Liz was not able to make it work with Ed.

Arguably, the worst of Ed’s behavior was when he told Liz’s mother that she should’ve raised her better. This showed that Ed has no limits, and will truly say anything to hurt someone. Ed acted incredibly disrespectfully as Liz and her mom moved her things out, which was frustrating to see. Hopefully, this will be the last we see of Big Ed, as his bad behavior onscreen has gone on for far too long.

Rob and Sophie’s drama is getting old

Rob Warne and Sophie Sierra have also had a frustrating storyline this season. Sophie first opened up about Rob’s online cheating during the couple’s time on 90 Day Fiancé Season 10. Rob had chatted with several women online, but Sophie decided to go forward with marrying him nonetheless.

The couple has been dealing with the same problems during Season 8, which has made things way too repetitive. Sophie discovered that Rob had been talking to more women than she realized, which caused her to briefly move out. To his credit, Rob has been taking steps to regain Sophie’s trust, although she has not been very receptive to them.

Both Rob and Sophie have contributed to their relationship’s problems, which don’t seem to be getting solved. It’s annoying to watch them go in circles every episode, just to end up in the same place.

Gino and Jasmine’s story is also repetitive

At this point, Gino Palazzolo and Jasmine Pineda have been on too many consecutive seasons. Gino and Jasmine aren’t bringing any fresh drama, and they are getting as boring as ever to watch.

The big issue for Gino and Jasmine in Season 8 has been their conflicting views on children. Gino is eager to have a baby with Jasmine, but she isn’t sure that she feels ready. Jasmine, on the other hand, is more concerned with bringing her two sons to the United States. Unfortunately, Gino made some errors on their paperwork, which delayed the process.

Gino and Jasmine have always been frustrating to watch, but they are just plain old boring at this point. They are not a fan-favorite couple, so it doesn’t make sense to keep bringing them back season after season.

Loren’s mommy makeover storyline is a waste of time

The biggest snooze fest of the season is Loren Brovarnik and her mommy makeover storyline. Loren and her husband Alexei Brovarnik were not introduced until later in the season, and their segments are lacking.

Loren and Alexei’s entire storyline revolves around Loren’s mommy makeover. While it is great that Loren wants to feel comfortable in her own skin, this isn’t exactly Happily Ever After-worthy. The spinoff typically features couples with intriguing or dramatic things going on in their lives, which makes it so fun. Loren, on the other hand, isn’t doing anything interesting at all.

The other frustrating thing about this storyline is that it revolves entirely around Loren. Alexei is always just kind of there, and seems like he is in a supporting role rather than a main one. Loren and Alexei aren’t adding anything to Season 8, and with eight other couples, it doesn’t make sense why they were necessary.

90 Day Fiancé can be streamed on Hulu.
