90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days is notorious for awkward airport pick up scenes. And Rebecca Parrott and Zied Hakimi delivered probably the best one yet. While Rebecca’s nervous for Zied to see her in all her middle-aged unfiltered glory, he shows up wearing the filtered version of her on his t-shirt. Classic. He does say she’s beautiful. Not like the picture. But still beautiful. This 90 Day recap is Season 3 Episode 2 “Pack Your Bags”. Watch as the ladies lug their emotional baggage to meet their foreign lovers on the TLC hot mess LDR show.

90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days Recap – Rebecca Parrott Lingerie Shops and Melts Down

Rebecca Parrott is headed to Tunisia to get it on with her much-younger internet lover Zied Hakimi. She takes her daughter with her to shop for lingerie and drop some extreme TMI on her daughter. Daughter Tiffany asks if mom’s gonna sex him the first night, to which her mother eagerly says of course. And that she’d prefer to do it in the first five minutes. That should go over well with airport security in the conservative Muslim country.

Then, Rebecca Parrott tells her daughter that Zied has seen every inch of her naked body with the help of videos, pictures and the famous ring light. But she is self-conscious that he will be disappointed by the real thing. She models some lingerie for her kid and the horrified sales chick. Can someone please teach this woman about boundaries? She feels sexy but then breaks down in the dressing room because she’s pretty much been frauding Zied with filters. The Before the 90 Days cast member could give a master class on video chat shenanigans.

Zied Hakimi Meets The Real Rebecca at The Airport

On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Rebecca Parrott drives to the airport. Zied Hakimi is ghosting her as she calls and messages desperately. We get treated to a little slice of Zied’s life as he smokes hookah with pals and looks at Rebecca’s pictures. He likes her tattoos and her boobs. His parents worry about him keeping true to his Muslim faith by not sharing a hotel room with her. His friends think the age difference is too much.

Rebecca arrives in Tunisia and nervously looks around for Zied. She finally spots him. Wearing a snap chatted version of herself on his shirt. The two hug and kiss and he says Rebecca Parrott looks beautiful. Not like shirt Rebecca, but he clearly likes her more than 55%. Zied Hakimi admits he arrived by taxi and suggests she rent them a car. Becca seems a little put off, but whips out her credit card. That’s the fastest way to get alone with that young D, so off they go.

Angela Deem’s Got 99 Problems But Toting An Egg Ain’t One

On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, our favorite Georgia girl is back. Angela Deem’s still trying to get hitched to her Trump-loving much younger Nigerian fiance Michael Ilesanmi. Elder Angela applied for young Michael’s K-1 visa. So, next up she wants to plan the multicultural weddin’ of their dreams. One where MAGA hats meet Zebra skins and worlds collide. In what certainly should be an Emmy nod for “best performance by a supporting cast member on a reality show” we meet Doug from the wedding venue. This dude is GOLD. Doug sees the world through pee-colored glasses.

Angela wants to know if he can do the ‘merica/Africa wedding theme. Doug offers to barbecue a goat, but that’s about it. For 4 or 5 grand they can even set up at the main “casebo”. Doug points out Angela’s got champagne dreams but a malt liquor budget. But before they get hitched, she needs to address Michael’s baby wants. It’s a cultural thing. So, Angela asks her daughter Skyla to loan her an egg. Angela says she can tote it, she just needs an egg. This conversation has the tone of someone asking to borrow Chapstick. So Angela shifts gears and says she’ll get her an egg elsewhere for Skyla to tote. Maybe the baby can be named Totes Magotes. Skyla gives it a definite hmm, maybe, we’ll see on Before the 90 Days.

90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days – Darcey Silva Heads Across The Pond With Extra Baggage

Darcey Silva has a new man and old extensions. The overly optimistic single mom is full of self-help lingo and lofty expectations of love. She speaks of open heart as she heads to girls night out with twin Stacey Silva. Their friend Raina joins them for drinks. Raina has a cool laid back vibe. Darcey’s happy she can drink without being called an alcoholic by chronic party pooper former boyfriend Jesse Meester. Clearly, there can’t be a convo without bringing up her Amsterdamaged ex.

On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days the gals toast to a new Darcey. Then, she kills Raina’s buzz talking about new Brit beau Tom Brooks and how he might “pop the question”. Raina suggests she not talk marriage until she at least actually meets him in person. It’s good advice, so it’s sure to be ignored. Stacey agrees that Darcey needs to pump the brakes. Darcey gets defensive. You don’t question her man or meat cutting skills. Expecting to land and get a ring seems delusional but hey, it’s Darcey.

Tom Gets an Eyeful of Darcey’s Pal Raina

In order to prove that Tom is indeed the number one best person on the planet, she video chats him in front of them. Raina gets flirty with the blue-eyed Brit and he eats it up. He asks to see her cleavage and she happily obliges. Darcey’s lips shrink to half their size and her good eye’s mad twitching. She schools Raina but her gal pal basically tells her to lighten up. Still want that proposal Darcey. One more drink and the red flags don’t seem as prominent…

On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Darcey Silva packs for London. She’s still stinging over her pal’s peep show for Tom. She tells Stacey she got a 3:00 am phone call from ex Jesse. But that she’s not even curious as to why he dialed her digits. But TLC peeps their text history and you can see just who’s the crazy one. So, she motors to the airport with more luggage than Paul Staehle packing for the Amazon. She takes selfies through security then tries to shove her emotional baggage in the carry-on bin. Good luck.

Tim Malcolm Gets A Going Away Party on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days

Tim Malcolm fell for aspiring Colombian model Jeniffer. She graduated from the Paola Mayfield school of self-delusion. Tim’s ex fiance Veronica throws him a farewell party. She plays the good-natured ex turned pal with a heart of gold. The kind of role that Julia Roberts would play if this were a movie. Unfortunately for Tim, it’s his real life. But under that “just friends” exterior lies a sinister force. One willing to wear a see-thru shirt and black bra to his going away party and snap a selfie to send to his new gal.

Not-too-bright Tim hits send. And gets back a “whatever” from Ms Colombia. Meanwhile, they all mock the pics of his girl with Veronica eagerly pointing out the cross tattoo growing out of her boobs. Tim knows he messed up sending that pic. Whoopsie. On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Veronica gets more passive aggressive encouraging Tim to propose with the same ring he gave her. This girl’s evil knows no bounds.

Meanwhile a clueless Tim buys Jeniffer the entire H&M warehouse and packs it to take to her. He hopes this will smooth over the selfie faux pas. He’s also traveling with a giant Teddy Bear for her young daughter. Will Jeniffer accept Veronica’s sloppy seconds and tainted ring? Stay tuned.

Avery Mills Snubs Her Mom’s Offer To Wear Her Wedding Dress

This recap of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, finds 19 year old Avery Mills hanging with her pals doing gymnastics. Which is a perfectly normal thing for a young girl to do. Avery scores a perfect 10 when it comes to making outrageous life-changing decisions. She swaps religions as quickly as she turns cartwheels. The former vegetarian who was outed by her little brother as hiding drumsticks under her bed is now Muslim. And about to marry a stranger and move to Syria.

Her friends question whether her fiance Omar Albakkour knows about her wild past. Since Omar has never even as much as kissed a girl. She says that he does, but doesn’t like the fact that Avery is um, “experienced”. Later Avery’s mom offers her wedding dress to her daughter as a tradition. Avery snubs the dress and says it’s disrespectful to Omar’s culture. Her mom points out that in 10 years she won’t like him telling her what to do. Little brother sasses some more – he doesn’t see this working out for big sis.

Remember when you thought you could go without chicken? How did that work out for you Avery? On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Avery and her mom to head to Lebanon to meet Omar. Avery hasn’t yet told her mom that she plans to honeymoon in war-torn Syria (then stay). She’s already on Zillow looking for a cute one bedroom preferably with air conditioning. At the airport, the newly-minted Muslim realizes she lost her phone. She decides she can go without it – mom’s not liking any of this.

Caesar Mack Comes In Under Budget With Maria’s Cheapo Ring on 90 Day Fiance

We last saw Caesar Mack crying over Ukrainian love Maria. After sending her 2 grand to buy a plane ticket to join him in Mexico (her idea), she created some story about martial law and danger. She says Russia said she couldn’t fly out. Caesar, who is maybe a few croutons short of a salad, did some research and found none of it to be true. He rings up the icy blonde to tell her the good news. She promises in her bot voice to book the ticket tonight.

Caesar is all smiles. He calls up his pal Jeremy to go ring hunting with him. His buddy questions Maria scamming him. And other men as well. Caesar Mack is very hurt by this. He is sure that he is the only one. He admits he sends her money rather than buy groceries for himself. Caesar says Maria would want a “Kim Kardashian” type of engagement ring. He giddily tells the sales lady all about her and his $200 budget.

She shows him a cubic zirconia that cost only $195 – and it’s still more authentic than his relationship with the Ukranian user, no doubt. Caesar is ecstatic while his friend asks about the return policy. The cut-rate jewelry merchant likes his optimism but tells producers that it’s likely a bust. Like Doug the wedding planner said – you can’t have a Kim Kardashian ring on a Mama June budget. Oh well. Till next week! Before the 90 Days airs Sundays at 8 pm on TLC.
