90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days Recap: Caesar Mack is Heartbroken When Maria Bails on Mexican Rendezvous

Caesar Mack has tried to meet his online girlfriend Maria for 5 years. The nail tech has sent her 40 grand over the years, but they’ve never actually met. I’m guessing Caesar is too busy working his nail magic on the local ladies to catch any episode of MTV’s Catfish. He wanted to go to the Ukraine, but she said it’s too cold and convinced him to meet her in Mexico instead. There’s just one little catch: Caesar is broke.

On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days the love struck Caesar hits up his boss for a loan. His boss tells him that he’s wasting his money and time. And that everyone in the salon thinks Maria is nothing but a scam artist. Caesar says in his heart he knows it’s the real deal. His boss agrees to loan him the money. Caesar promptly wires two grand to Maria. He says he trusts her to buy her own ticket. Oh Caesar.

Caesar buys his ticket and pays for the hotel. He calls Maria whose tone is that of an angry Ukrainian version of Siri. She claims that Ukraine is under attack and its martial law so she cannot go out. You can see the sheer heartbreak in Caesars once smiling face. He tries to ask questions about the situation and she calls him selfish. Dude. You are being plaaayyyed! Caesar cries after the producer asks if he thinks she’s just making an excuse.

90 Day Fiance Recap: Rebecca Heads To Tunisia But She’s Got A Big Secret

On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Rebecca Parrott is a master of illusion. She relies on Snapchat filters, make up and something called a ring light to make herself look younger for 26-year-old Zied Hakimi. She’s worried about how Zied will react when he sees the real deal without mood lighting. She asks if he can stay in the hotel room with her. Zied says yes, but she points out that his father said in Tunisia that unmarried couples can’t sleep together.

She doesn’t want his father to judge her. But she’s got bigger problems than showing up raw and unfiltered. It turns out she’s not legally divorced from her ex. A Moroccan man she also met online. She gets weepy talking about it because she thinks Zied could end the relationship over it. And then she’d be just sitting home basking in the glow of the ring light all alone. She is leaving soon for Tunisia where she’ll break the news to Zied.

Darcey Heads To London to Meet Tom on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days

Darcey Silva lies in bed and wraps her extensions around her fingers to video chat with Tom Brooks. She will head to London soon to meet him. She says they’ve chatted online for 4 years. Tom points out that when he met her he was madly in love with someone else. And that when he was free she was making an ass of herself on TV chasing after Jesse Meester. She pouts and says that he was there for her when it all went in the pooper with the lad from Amsterdam.

On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Darcey shows off a ring Tom gave her that “captures her style”. Hmm. You mean fake and tacky with a pop of desperation? She starts talking about Jesse again. That when Tom posted a pic of Darcey wearing the ring Jesse called it hilarious and fake. Which it was. Darcey says Jesse needs to move on and not sabotage their relationship. Tom suggest they stop talking about him. Darcey agrees while secretly doodling Mrs. Darcey Meester on a note pad.

She asks about him picking her up at the airport. He says he’ll be sending a driver to fetch her. Because her teeth will be mossy after that long flight so she’ll need to go freshen up first. Her eye starts twitching despite her Botox. But the steak cutting diva says that makes it even more romantic. Because not bothering to pick someone up when they arrive in a foreign country is just so sweet. Tom reminds her that there is no “comparation” between him and Jesse. Really dude?

This makes her happy and she tells him she saw a dress for $500 dollars that she would also like him to buy. He stammers a little about the price but notes her hotness and says he will do it. Just send the link.

She tells him that her family is very conservative. And that he must be respectful. And if her dad asks him to help out on the farm that he has to say yes. He wants to know if that means shoveling cow patties.  She’s not amused by this comment. Timothy is a little nervous about that but decides to pack some extra Axe body spray in case that situation arises.
