Daniel Finally Meets His Virtual Dad on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Tiffany Franco and young Daniel arrive to a warm welcome at the airport. (Sorry Corey). Ronald Smith’s mom Ria has balloons and a stuffed shark for 8 yr old Daniel. Seems like Daniel travels better and is more mature than most adult cast members. (Sorry Paul). He has a great attitude and is polite. He even attempts Spanish in a non-Spanish speaking country. Hey. the little guy tried, which is more than we can say for some of the adults (Sorry Evelin).

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Ronald is being released from the wellness center (Sorry Ashley). So, he spent 6 months in rehab for a gambling problem that led him to petty crimes. During this time he bonded with Daniel via video chats. So now he’s calling him Dad and running to him. Keep on making those good life choices Tiffany. Although Tiffany admits if he slips again then it’s a no go. So, maybe the daddy stuff could’ve waited? At least the stuffed shark isn’t going anywhere.

The counselor gives Ronald a framed certificate. Of course everyone is all hugs and tears on 90 Day Fiance. That is until the counselor requests a private word with Tiffany and Ronald. He informs them that although he has been victorious against his gambling addiction, that other addictions can pop up like weeds. Certainly, Tiffany wants to know more. The man says he could move on to alcohol or porn. Spoken like someone who knows his stuff. Good luck Tiffany. Ronald seems more slippery than an eel.

Evelin Villegas Tells Corey Rathgeber To Man Up And Take The Bus

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Corey Rathgeber is ready to leave the Candy Cane Forest to go find his dad. Oh wait sorry that was Buddy the Elf. Anyway, the story really isn’t that different. Corey grew up in a compound sheltered from every day life. So, he decides to venture to an entirely different world to find love. Only to be met with indifference from the one person he went to find.! It seems the Mormon mama’s boy has sold his car packed up his life and is ready to go.

Corey FaceTimes with girlfriend Evelin Villegas. He asks if she is all in with this. Because he’s literally giving up everything to go live with her in Ecuador. Evelin says she hopes so, but whatever! If it doesn’t work out, they are both young enough to move on!

Corey is upset by her attitude and reminds her that he’s giving up a lot – Like running water and electricity. So, she asks if he wants her to put “fire behind his feet”,  and finally “does he think he’s a saint?”

In this 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Corey bids a tearful goodbye to his mom and pop. He admits his gut is telling him this is the worst thing he could do in his life. Nevertheless he gets on the plane and arrives 2 days later bogged down with baggage and eager to see Evelin. When he lands, his fiance is nowhere to be found. He calls her up and she casually tells him she’s still at home in Engabao. As if it’s no big deal. You are a big man she tells him. Go get on the bus! Harsh. Good luck Corey, I hope you find your girl.

Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee: Knocked Up on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way

This week we finally meet newbies Jihoon Lee and Deavan Clegg. Jihoon lives in South Korea. His job is as a used phone dealer. Jihoon has trendy hair and an adorable dog, Bbakki (who he considers his daughter). He lives with his mother and father. Jihoon’s tale starts out much like any other on any given installment of 90 Day Fiance. Bored, he went on a dating app. His strategy was simple. Ugly: pass. Beautiful: Yes. And then he saw 22-year-old Deavan. Of course, the rest is history. Well sort of.

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Deavan Clegg is a 22-year-old old single mom. The sultry mom lives with her folks and sister. Her daughter Drusilla is a wild child. We see the wild haired toddler launch a butter knife through the air. So, no arguments there. Jihoon paid Deavan a visit 3 months after they met online. Thanks to some shady accommodations at the no tell motel and some cheap wine, Deavan got knocked up the first night.

The pregnant Deavan has visited Jihoon and family in South Korea. They weren’t impressed with her tattoos and said she seemed  tired and unhappy. Jihoon’s mom is especially not a fan. She wants a Korean daughter-in-law who can be cute with her. Not some moody tatted up American. Jihoon’s mom is a little terrifying once she gets going. Next up, everyone is meeting up in Vegas to see if Deavan is approved. Drusilla may have met her match with Jihoon’s mom. Good luck with that.

Jenny Slatten Not Feeling Older Indian Auntie Garb

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Jenny and Indian boy toy Sumit have spent their first night together. Jenny says it was amazing and they both woke up smiling. Sumit hails a rickshaw to take his old lady (pun intended) shopping. He thinks if she wore some traditional Indian garb, they’d get less attention. People do gawk as they ride through town. But I don’t think it’s her clothing that’s the problem. Of course it doesn’t help.

At the bazaar, Sumit suggests a Sari, traditional Indian garb. Jenny says she’s a more of a casual dresser. She dislikes the looks of the Sari and says they are for older Indian “aunties“. This from the lady who is many times a granny. She points out that she’s an American woman and won’t be told what to do. Um, have you ever heard of India. Girlfriend did you not google what it’s like for the ladies here? Meanwhile, Sumit sports a very American style plaid shirt. Let’s just hope grandma doesn’t get run over by a rickshaw. Till next time!
