90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days star Tom Brooks opened up about Darcey Silva‘s iconic airport bathroom moment. The 39-year-old British man gushed about her American girlfriend who goes the extra mile just to impress him on their first meeting. However, Tom’s gesture of sending a driver to fetch Darcey was booed by some. Was it the right thing to do for Tom?
90 Day Fiance: Tom Brooks Impressed With Darcey Silva’s Effort During First Meeting
Looks like Darcey Silva managed to make a good impression on Tom Brooks — at least with her last-minute “ho bath” at the airport. The 90 Day Fiance celeb took to Instagram earlier this week and showed his appreciation to his ladylove in a humorous way. In response to a post showing Darcey’s memorable bathroom scene, Tom commended her effort to look good for him.
On Sunday’s 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Darcey Silva arrived in London to meet Tom in person for the first time. But before she gets down to business, Darcey sneaked in at the airport’s bathroom and freshen up. The poor taxi driver had to endure 45 minutes of waiting before Darcey emerged all glammed up. Apparently, Tom didn’t know about Darcey’s airport antics until he saw the episode.
Tom Reveals He Paid $500 For Darcey’s Arrival
Darcey Silva’s bathroom moment at the airport seemed to amaze Tom Brooks. Seeing it for the first time, the London-based businessman couldn’t help but admire Darcey’s dedication to looking her best for him. “Wow great to see you making so much effort for me,” the 90 Day Fiance star wrote.
Tom added that Darcey’s effort made the money he spent on the cab driver worth it. “I almost don’t mind the $500 cab ride bill now,” referring to the fare he paid. Fans were quick to react to Tom’s pricey taxi bill. In his defense, Tom explained that he “kept the meter running” the entire time. So that 45-minute glam up session at the bathroom definitely didn’t come cheap.
90 Day Fiance: Tom Defends Not Picking Up Darcey At Airport
Meanwhile, Tom Brooks also faced criticism for not personally meeting Darcey Silva when she arrived at the airport. The 90 Day Fiance star just sent a driver to get Darcey and drop her off to the restaurant. Apparently, some think that welcoming Darcey in person has a more special feel to it, especially since she traveled thousands of miles to see him.
However, Tom Brooks maintained that there’s nothing wrong with his gesture. He explained that “he was trying to be kind” by sending someone to get Darcey Silva at the airport. Tom added that Darcey seemed happy about it and that’s what matters most.
90 Day Fiance: Tom A True Gentleman? Or Not Feeling Darcey?
Aside from not personally showing up at the airport, Tom Brooks also opted to rent a house for Darcey Silva instead of taking her home with him. The 90 Day Fiance celeb implied he’s only being a gentleman, especially since they barely know each other yet. However, not everyone’s convinced of that.
Apparently, some 90 Day Fiance fans think that Tom intentionally avoids spending alone time with Darcey because he’s not really feeling her. During one of his interviews at the show, Tom admitted that Darcey’s emotional personality kind of turns him off. “Darcey is a very emotional person- something I don’t particularly find attractive,” he said. At one point, he even claimed he feels as if he’s babysitting Darcey Silva when she’s having one of those crying moments.
Tom also felt like at this point, Darcey is rushing into things. He added that they might not be on the same page when it comes to the true nature of their 90 Day Fiance relationship. Is this something Darcey should be worried about? Is Tom another Jesse Meester waiting to happen?
