Stephanie Davidson Foots The Bill For Ryan Carr and Family on 90 Day Fiance

Stephanie Davidson admits she’s been paying for all the essentials for Ryan’s family since the pandemic started. And has even gone as far as to have a friend in Belize hire Ryan Carr at a resort. It turns out, Stephanie is paying the wages so he will have some self-esteem. As long as she doesn’t tell anyone on national TV, Ryan will never know.

Everybody thinks this is a bit of a red flag on 90 Day Fiance. But Stephanie says she loves Ryan enough to “take the risk”. So it looks like operation boy-toy Belize is a go for now.

Unlike some of the other ladies who are new to America this season.

90 Day Fiance: Hazel Cagalitan - Tarik Myers

The restaurant is called “The Hair Of The Dog” and Hazel Cagalitan takes this literally. Tarik explains they won’t be dining on Fido’s fur it’s just an expression. Hazel isn’t so sure about the chicken and waffles and french toast. Hazel even more unsure about Tarik’s plans for them to get married in a place called the A.R.E. or association for research and enlightenment. Tarik calls it his church that’s not a church on 90 Day Fiance. It’s actually pretty cool. But Hazel Cagalitan wants to put the brakes on.

We take a look back at when Hazel Cagalitan took Tarik to her church on 90 Day Fiance. So we can see why she’s not a fan of a zen layout for meditation, even though it does have stained glass. To Hazel, church is about a 6-hour frenzy of speaking in tongues, sweating and flinging yourself to the ground. Later they discuss Hazel’s role as a stepmother to his daughter Auri. This makes her nervous and she’s not sure how it’s going to go but she will try her best.
