We have made it through the first season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. Like other shows in the franchise, this version lured me in and got me hooked. I might not have learned anything and my IQ might be 10 points lower for having watched, but boy it was fun. Quality television that delivers!
Out of all the couples on the show, Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee were arguably the most likeable and relatable. Sure, they made some bad decisions, like getting pregnant immediately after meeting, but both seemed to have their hearts, if not their decision-making skills in the right place. One thing I could not figure out during the season was why Deavan was moving to South Korea when she had a job and family in the U.S., while Jihoon was struggling to get by. Deavan recently revealed how she came to the decision to move and her purported reasons behind it are both sad and shocking.
Laura Jallali has joined a bevy of 90 Day Fiance ladies that lured their younger partners in under seemingly false pretenses. Laura, Rebecca, and Angela Deem all admitted to catfishing their men initially with outdated photos, filters, and all the best image-enhancing technology that exists.
Us 90 Day Fiance junkies were able to witness Zied and Michael Ilesanmi’s reaction as they met their significant others for the first time. But what about Aladin Jallali? He had already seen Laura in person, married, and consummated the union with a bit of short-lived and unsatisfying jiggy-jiggy, according to her. Actually, most of what we know about this couple is based on what Laura has said. She was the more vocal of the two at the “Couples Tell-All” reunion while Aladin admitted to struggling with the language and regretting not speaking through an interpreter. Finally, Aladin got a chance to share his side of the story by posting a series of videos on social media meant as a response to topics his ex-wife brought up on the show.
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!
Well, the first season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way has wrapped up and I have a feeling we will be seeing more of the show in seasons to come. Having the Americans go to other countries, where they will conceivably live in the future put a new spin on the franchise. The cast checked all of the boxes for viewers: naivete, impulsivity and an utter disdain for common sense, personal dignity and conventional social behavior. In other words, good reality television!
Laura Jallali and her husband Aladin Jallali were a difficult couple to figure out. On the surface, they seemed completely mismatched. Aladin was a young, good looking personal trainer living in Qatar. Laura was a middle aged retiree living in Florida. Aladin was reserved and dignified, while Laura was a bit on the, shall we say, crass side. Why were they together? What was in it for them? Love? Fame? Attention? Of course, the ill-matched couple’s marriage quickly imploded and they had an ugly confrontation on the reunion show, with Laura in full victim mode.
Sadly, we have come to the end of the 90-Day Fiance: The Other Way season. Like the other 90 Day jewels, this new show promised as delivered. A veritable dumpster fire of romantic dysfunction that makes you wonder why people would ever agree to participate. It is oddly fascinating to watch cast members submit themselves to the possibility of public humiliation for love, desperation, fame wh*ring and/or a green card.
Laura Jallali is one of the stars of the show, along with her decades younger love Aladin Jallali. These two seeming opposites were difficult to figure out for most of the season. Was it love? Lust for retiree Laura? Opportunities for personal trainer Aladin? Who knows. We may never have the real answers as to why the couple paired up, but the two did manage to pull off a pretty spectacular on-camera wedding that put to shame most of the other 90 Day low-budget affairs. The Qatar couple’s marital bliss did not last for long, however, and now Laura is giving an update to her social media followers.
The most recent episode of 90 Day Fiance The Other Way was the conclusion of the two-part finale special. Don’t worry there are still many surprising updates that are uncovered. We also learn where many relationships stand after the season and the Tell All.
Jenny Slatten hoped Summit will join the reunion after their devastating separation. Laura Jallali ’s son, Liam, has zero sympathy for his mother despite her failing marriage to Aladin Jallali,. Jihoon Lee reveals that his mother wanted him to marry a Korean woman. Tiffany’s trust issues are highlighted. Let’s discuss all the juicy details!
Ashley Martson and Jay Smith are the supremely dysfunctional couple on 90 Day Fiance that extended their fifteen minutes of fame by exploiting their behavior. During their time on the show, Ashley filed for divorce not once, but twice. She withdrew the petition after two weeks, only to reapply a few months later. Those papers, filed in April, have yet to be signed by Jay.
Any subsequent news about the couple had more to do with Jay’s time in ICE custody and his new relationship. Ashley attended some events, but relatively speaking, kept a low profile. However, fans of the show know that, in terms of tabloid fodder and fans’ guilty pleasure in reading it, aren’t these two just better together?
Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days was probably one of the most normal since the beginning of the season. But it also was very informative and really set up viewers for the Tell All next week. I already know this is just the calm before the storm. There is no way the crazy won’t reemerge just in time for next week’s reunion. I am so ready to find out what has been going on behind the scenes.
Benjamin struggles through the bride price ceremony. Tim leaves Colombia with unfinished business. Tom Brooks plans a big gesture for Darcey Silva’s last night. Angela Deem feels uneasy at her engagement party. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days recap!
