There were so many bombs dropped on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days last night, we all need Paul’s military heat vest to withstand the fallout. DUDE, these peeps be CRAY! But I wouldn’t want it any other way, would you? Before we get to the raging hot mess of Angela and Michael, let’s check in with our other couples.
Newcomers Marta, a single mom of two from Milwaukee, is introduced to us and we learn about her online relationship with expert-selfie taker Daya, from Algeria. These two very misguided people are a perfect match, according to Daya, except for one small problem: She is Catholic and he is Muslim. And neither of them have any plans to convert. No prob!
Just when we were getting nice and uncomfortable with our current couples on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, two new faces hit our screens! Tonight, we’ll finally be introduced to Marta, a single mom of two from Milwaukee, and her internet “boyfriend” Daya, from Algeria. And the drama that already exists between these two – before they’ve even met each other in person – is already red hot.
It turns out, Marta comes from a Catholic family who take their religion quite seriously, but Daya is a strict Muslim, and has already been pressuring Marta to convert. Marta’s mother is not happy to hear this. Also, “very religious” Marta is an exotic dancer. YUP. Oh, this is gonna be good.
New York Fashion Week is not just for the clothing designers and models. Some of the Real Housewives also turned up to check out the looks. New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga were in attendance and turning it out with their looks.
The moment Family Karine has been dreading is here: their beloved daughter will meet Paul and Siri at the altar to wed in holy matrimony. The day of the wedding, Karine is still nervous but committed her bad decisions. As Mother Karine cries by her side, Paul rides to the ceremony hall recounting his terrible relationships of yesteryear and hoping he doesn’t have a panic attack today. No running into the woods, Paul! BAD PAUL. Sit. Stay.
It’s an all-new 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days tonight, and things are about to get a little bit more stupider. Yes, this show is taking the drama and dysfunction to new levels every week, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
If someone would’ve told me that Ricky would turn out to be the mastermind player of this season’s 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days crew, I would have laughed straight in their face. Yet somehow, our boy Ricky pulled a straight up Keyser Soze on us last night when he revealed his backup plan for being catfished by Melissa. Because, yo: HE HAS ANOTHER CHICK ON STANDBY! And after witnessing Ricky’s shrewd move to replace Melissa with Ximena (pronounced “Hemena”) as his love interest for the remainder of his time in Colombia, I guess he deserves a slow clap. Or a slap in the face? Maybe both.
We pick up with Ricky contemplating his trip to Colombia thus far, which has amounted to a 12-minute “date” with Melissa the prostitute, followed by a full day of fanny packing it around the city, solo. It’s finally dawned on Ricky that he’s been dumped by the woman of his dreams, a person who he’s been sending money to, and who he fully expected to propose to on this trip. Remember that ring? Yeah, he still has it. But hey – why not just give that thing to somebody else? Ricky has an idea, guys.
Tonight’s 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days looks like it may be turning the tables on its “Poor Ricky” storyline. Previews suggest that Ricky may have a backup plan in Colombia. In other words, Ricky maybe ain’t so dumb after all? “I haven’t been totally truthful with everyone,” says Ricky in a preview clip, just before we see him meeting up with another woman who he’s apparently been texting on the sly.
It looks like our other five couples continue to wreck the train in new, thrilling ways tonight as well. The dysfunction reaches new heights when Jesse and Darcey attempt to cook a “drama free dinner” for Darcey’s daughters. Spoiler alert: There will be blood.
Before we get into the new couples’ downward spirals, let’s check in with last year’s leftovers, starting with Darcey and Jesse. Spoiler alert: They still pretty much want to murder one another. (Also, last night was jam packed with cringe-worthy greatness, so please excuse the novella of a recap to come…)
