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.
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?
