Jihoon Lee’s Strange Phobia on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way

Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee are having a second wedding in South Korea. This time, her family will attend. Deavan chats via Skype with her parents. Deavan wants to know if her mom Elicia is still mad at Jihoon for “letting” Drascilla dash into the street. She says yes. After the call ends, Jihoon Lee tells Deavan he has “EP” syndrome. Meaning Elicia-phobia. Deavan Clegg actually takes a short break from being morose and laughs.

Later, Jihoon’s mom and the 90 Day Fiance couple head to the airport to pick up the family Clegg. Jihoon admits he and his mom are just extras. Jihoon Lee says the sight of his monster-in-law makes him want to pee his pants. Deavan’s mom hugs him but then makes annoyed faces every time he speaks. Scenes from next week’s 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way have Deavan in her wedding dress asking Elicia if she approves of this union with Jihoon Lee.

Sisters of Biniyam Shibre Think Ariela Weinberg Needs Put in Her Place on The Other Way

Ariela Weinberg’s parents visit the 90 Day Fiance couple in Ethiopia. Ariela says she and Biniyam Shibre fight a lot. But she wants to try and make it nice so her parents will support the relationship. Biniyam is already in the dog house for heading off to a gig at a nightclub on their first night in town. Nevertheless, Baby wants to make a good impression on Ariela’s folks during a trip to the market.

Ariela’s dad, on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, is a bit surprised at the poverty and rundown buildings. He admits he really hasn’t seen much of the world outside of New Jersey. Biniyam Shibre decides that choosing a chicken to be slaughtered for dinner would be just the kind of good old fashioned family fun to break the ice. Instead, Ariela Weinberg and mom Janice are horrified and beg for the bird’s mercy. Biniyam is embarrassed. Didn’t he learn anything from the sheep incident on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way?

Later, the couple take them to see their new apartment. Even the “positive gangster” can’t get behind the lack of space and dorm-sized fridge. They lecture Biniyam on the importance of getting a good old 9 to 5 instead of working for tips dancing Mambo. Later, it gets even worse when Biniyam’s sisters call out Ariela Weinberg as a bossy white girl with a temper. And they spill the beans about the baptism. Ariela’s pops isn’t happy about it. And she threatens to leave if baby Avi is taught the evils of hell.

Jenny Slatten Wants Sumit Singh But He’s Still Trying to Please His Parents on 90 Day Fiance

The virus lockdown ended in India so Jenny Slatten’s eager to get out and get the ball rolling on her wedding to Sumit Singh. After all, she’s not getting any younger. Sumit gifts his not so blushing bride-to-be with some sort of COVID prevention card on a lanyard. So, they look like they are attending a convention at the Delhi Holiday Inn. Jenny Slatten suggests if they get their license approved by the attorney, they just go ahead and get married on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

Sumit Singh kind of hems and haws about that suggestion. He still thinks he can get his mom and dad to come around. Jenny knows this ain’t happening and she is upset that he’s stalling. The news is better at the lawyer’s office. He tells them they can have a quickie wedding if they just visit an Arya Samaj temple. This sect doesn’t judge and looks at the soul of the people. Jenny Slatten’s overjoyed at the news but Sumit seems anxious on 90 Day Fiance.

Jenny calls her daughter and spills the good news. But she also admits that Sumit Singh still wants his parents’ blessing. Sumit calls up his brother Amit and sister-in-law Sharee to come over. They are pretty shocked that Jenny and Sumit have a ring ceremony in a few days. Sumit wants them to talk to his parents. But Amit says his parents will never accept it. Jenny Slatten sobs and says she can’t help her age. Things certainly aren’t looking good for this 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way couple.

Yazan Tells Brittany Banks What She Wants to Hear on The Other Way

Yazan Abo Horira picks up a boozy Brittany Banks and her pal from a bar in Jordan on the 90 Day Fiance spinoff. He quickly covers her cleavage with her coat under the guise of not wanting her to be cold. He takes her to the barber shop where he works now. Brittany digs the place and is all flirty with Yazan even wanting to cut his hair. Her friend is confused because Brittany Banks declared she was done with Yazan and just wanted to make this a fun girls trip.

Brittany admits that she’s still carrying a torch for Yazan. But she doesn’t want to convert to Islam and wants to wait a year to get married. He agrees and she’s pretty surprised. But also thinks he’s just telling her what she wants to hear on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. She agrees to meet up with him at his new apartment the next day. But admits she still has her guard up as she’s not sure if he’s telling the truth.

Brittany likes Yazan’s place except for the bathroom floor that’s wet. He suggests she could stay there with him since he has a spare room. Brittany is a little put off and says she “likes to cuddle”. Yazan suggests that until they are married that can’t happen. And admits he can’t wait but cannot have a girlfriend. He wants to bring in a third party to explain to her the danger he is in if they don’t make it official. She agrees to this but passes on staying with him using the wet bathroom floor as an excuse on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

Tim Clarkson & Melyza Zeta on The Couples Couch For Some Advice on 90 Day Fiance

Tim “cheese stick” Clarkson takes his mom for coffee the morning of her last day in Colombia. Mama cheese has enjoyed her stay. But Tim is sniffling at the thought of her leaving. He’s also not sure if Melyza Zeta is all-in on their relationship since she was seeing other dudes while they were “on a break”. His mom explains that maybe it was good that she sampled some other cheeses. That way, she can see that his cheddar was better on The Other Way.

The 90 Day Fiance couple visit a therapist to work through some of their trust issues. Tim Ckarkson admits that he’s worried about not having a job yet. And that it’s crossed his mind to return to the states so he could continue working. Melyza Zera says this is news to her in a monotone aside to producers. She also tells the therapist that she still doesn’t trust Tim. This therapist deserves all the awards for managing not to fall asleep during this snooze fest of a session on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

Armando Rubio & Kenneth Niedermeier Take Next Steps to Get Married

The road to marriage is filled with speed bumps for 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way couple Armando Rubio and Kenneth Niedermeier. After being denied a marriage license, the two will now appeal to the human rights commission. They take Armando’s daughter Hannah along to retrieve the copy of the denial letter. Armando explains to Hanna that right now, they aren’t allowed to marry. She declares that a mean, ugly man must be to blame on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

Once at the office, Hannah charms the clerk of course. But the mood goes sour when Armando Rubio reads the letter that says the same sex marriage license must be denied to “save the species.” Kenneth Niedermeier is pretty outraged while Armando takes it more in stride. Maybe because he’s used to Mexico not being as progressive as the United States when it comes to gay rights. Till next week.
