90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Recap: Big Expectations

On last night’s episode of 90-Day Fiance The Other Way, Sumit had Jenny come all the way from the US, despite knowing his family wouldn’t accept her. Not only that, he has to lie to them to sneak away when she arrives. Why wait until the day that your girlfriend is coming to talk to your family? Tsk, tsk, tsk… I don’t see this going well, at all. Honestly, I envision his family tying him down to a chair to stop him from embarking on his new non-traditional life with his American love. I use the word “love” lightly because I still sense a scam in the works. I could be wrong… hell, I hope I am wrong… Jenny’s childlike optimism makes me just want to protect her heart. One part of me wants her love story to come true, but the realist in me just doesn’t see it happening. Sigh!

Jenny nervously awaits her love, Summit, to arrive at the airport to begin their love story. Despite him arriving an hour late, Jenny is smitten. I guess he found a way to escape the interrogation at his parent’s home. To Jenny’s surprise, Sumit reveals that there is no hot water. Ummm… seems like that is a question you may have wanted to ask beforehand. The apartment is actually pretty nice, but the  $350 a month apartment is considered expensive in India. Sumit doesn’t know how long he will be able to afford it. Hmmmm…. and here is when the scamation (yes, that is a made-up word.) begins. One day he can’t afford rent and the next Jenny is paying for his new upgraded lifestyle.

90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Recap: It’s Go Time

On last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, one hopeful romantic was left stranded at the airport. Are you really surprised, when you look at this cast? All signs point to more than one person getting scammed out of their savings. What is surprising to me is that most of the American families seem to be taking their loved one leaving pretty well.

Maybe I come from a family who doesn’t care about hurting my feelings. I can guarantee my family would tell me I was making a mistake at every opportunity! Get ready to grab your popcorn and let’s judge people in the court of public opinion, for a bit.

90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Season Premiere Recap: All In The Name Of Love

On the series premiere of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, we met four of the six Americans who will be moving out of the country for love. The show definitely has an interesting twist considering its premise is the opposite of the original series. Don’t worry; although they won’t be America, the cast still has the same amount of crazy we have come to love. This has disaster written all over it and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Will uprooting pay off? Or will they be running home brokenhearted? Buckle up folks. This shit show is just getting started.

Jenny, a divorced grandmother is pursuing love in India. Originally, she thought she was talking to an English hottie, named Michael Jones. Only to find out she was being catfished by her future love, Summit. Ummm…. Someone make it make sense! You always see people like this on Dr. Phil, but never up close and personal. This man pursues you as someone else and when he reveals himself, you not only continue to date him, but decide to leave the country?????? Okay, this show definitely has promise. I can already see the cray unfolding. Jenny is emotional retrieving her visa from the mail. I hope her dream comes true, I really do.  But the realist in me screams… your bank account will be empty before you can finish your butter chicken. Ma’am, you are too old, to be this naive. SMH…

Marrying Millions

The creators of 90 Day Fiance are trying their hand at scoring another reality TV hit.  And they are taking the magic formula that worked so well for that series.  That is, following the lives of two very different people as they try to build a life together.  This time though, the couples are all Americans but live in vastly different financial situations.

It seems like an interesting idea, though fans will miss out on the cringe-worthy cultural clashes that made 90 Day Fiance so great.  Who can forget Paul Staehle and Karine Staehle in their early days communicating through Google translate? Or Nicole Nafziger unable to deny herself PDA with Azan Tefou?

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Premiere Date Announced

Has it been too long since 90 Day Fiance ended?  Has it left a void in your life?  Do you miss seeing awkward airport reunions?  How about witnessing the immigrating partner’s disappointment in the “American dream”?  Can’t get enough.

That’s why fans can mark their calendars.  TLC announced a premiere for their new spinoff 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.  Only this amalgamation of international love on reality TV will have the American partner moving overseas to be with their one and only.

90 Day Fiance’s Paul Staehle Talks Marriage, Babies & Language Barriers On The Jenny McCarthy Show

One of my favorite 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days couples has been Paul Staehle and Karine Staehle. Although their romance was turbulent and drama filled, there was something about the couple that made me root for them. Maybe it was just nice to see that two odd ducks were able to find each other in a world filled with less odd ducks. Fighting and making up via Google Translate, of course!

Paul and Karine faced many challenges to their relationship and eventual marriage. Paul’s criminal record. Financial problems. Immigration issues. Language barriers. And a heartbreaking miscarriage televised last season. Now, the couple has shared some good news-they have announced the birth of their first child.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Stars Paul and Karine Staehle Will Not Be Returning To the Series

Any fans of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days that enjoyed watching Paul Staehle and Karine Staehle segments will be very disappointed to hear that this couple won’t be returning to the show. Paul confirmed that TLC will no longer be involved in airing their bumbling Google translate conversations with the now deleted Instagram post, “even though we were not selected to advance on the show, we are very excited for this huge next step in our life as a new family.” The “huge step” was a confirmation document for Karine’s visa interview. This interview would be taking place at a U.S. embassy in Brazil closest to their residence on October 30th and, if she passes, Karine will be given a spousal visa to travel into the U.S. Once in the country, she will be able to apply for a Green Card. If she is able to travel before delivering, Paul and Karine’s baby will automatically have U.S. citizenship.

Paul has already left Brazil for the U.S. He posted a rambling monologue about flying his German Shepherds in from Brazil. Among some of the highlights of this odyssey include 3 connecting flights with series 500 kennels, dogs breaking out at security checkpoint in Miami, Paul left stranded in Chicago and having to spend over $700 on an Uber.
