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.
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!
Darcey Silva is on her third season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. She has pained viewers with her histrionics, her incessant need for affirmations, and an absolutely outrageous wardrobe. There is a reference to love and/or engagements in every sentence she utters.
This gal doesn’t seem concerned with getting to know the man she intends to marry, just so long as he pops the question. Prior to appearing on the show with Brit Tom Brooks this season, Darcey was dating Netherlands native Jesse Meester. That courtship ended in disaster. And maybe Jesse had a couple of good points about Darcey because she is clearly displaying some behavioral patterns in her new relationship. As Season 3 progresses, we see the same needy, irrational Darcey fixating on extracting a proposal from Tom. And of course fans are dying to find out if their relationship is still going strong or has Tom made a break for it?
It feels like there’s a new 90 Day Fiance spin-off announced once a week at this point. The original series is still going strong. 90 Day Fiance Before the 90 Days has blessed us all with Darcey Silva’s craziness. Some couples from the original show have returned to TV for 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After. They even reversed the 90 Day Fiance concept with 90 Day Fiance the Other Way. And, for some reason, Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno had their own spin-off show.
Recently, news broke about a spin-off focused on college students. There are already a lot of these shows. Now, reality TV veteran Aubrey O’Day has another idea for a show.
The 90 Day Fiance franchise is a highly entertaining guilty pleasure that fans can’t seem to get enough of. The series expanded to include Happily Ever After, Before the 90 Days, and 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. Watching each batch of outrageous couples making questionable decisions never gets old. Seriously, where do they find these people? Some are so deluded that they ignore all reason and red flags to continue with the partner they’ve chosen.
Maybe part of the appeal is watching people that should know better self-implode. Some are clearly confusing physical attraction with “love.” Others seem to court dysfunction time and again. Let’s face it, some are just looking for their 15 minutes of fame. So far, the couples are varying in age. We have young lovebirds like Omar Albakour and Avery Mills, but also Angela Deem who is hanging on to her fertility by one lonesome little egg. So the question is, where do we go from here in terms of a new angle?
Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days, was like a gift from the reality TV gods. Between the desperation, delusion, and the secrets, I was on the edge of my seat. I often wonder if these people have no relationship/people experience. Why do they do these stupid things and believe that they will get positive results? But I am starting to realize that trying to compare their actions with rational people is what is actually crazy.
Tim makes a stupid decision. Benjamin negotiates a bride price for Akinyi. Darcey Silva confides in Tom Brooks’ sister. Angela Deem tries to make amends with Michael Ilesanmi‘s friends. Rebecca reveals shocking news to Zied. Get ready to break down the crazy!
When we were first introduced to Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, we learned the couple initially connected on an international dating app. Within several months, the two met in person and Deavan immediately became pregnant. Although the couple hardly knew each other, they decided to make a go of it. Jihoon’s amazing parents came to the U.S. to spend more time with Deavan and her daughter Drascilla and the couple became engaged. Unfortunately, Jihoon was not able to arrive in the U.S. in time for the birth of their son, Taeyang.
Deavan and the baby soon moved to South Korea to be with Jihoon, initially leaving her daughter behind while she settled in the country. The couple faced challenges, both financial and cultural, but soon married. That is where we have left off at this point on the show, but it was recently revealed that the couple were expecting another baby. The pregnancy news actually leaked out when Deavan was asking insurance questions on a private Facebook group page and the screen shots went public.
