Tim Clarkson Lands In Colombia With Some Extra Baggage on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
Tim Clarkson (Cheese Stick) and cat Pepino have completed their journey to their new home in Medellin, Colombia. It’s been 7 months and several less pounds since Tim has seen his girlfriend, Melyza Zeta. On 90 Day Fiance, Melyza is still a little salty about his indiscretion with a coworker. But Melyza on the way to the airport with her two dogs to pick him up. Tim is hoping they can leave his cheating in the past. And that Melyza will run to his arms at the airport like in the past.
Melyza Zeta does run to Tim Clarkson on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. She’s also excited to see Pepino. Tim comments that one of her dogs gained weight. And admits he has too. Melyza tells producers Tim has clearly gained some weight. And that his new nickname will be Chubby Cheddar. (Again sorry, couldn’t resist). Tim isn’t happy that Melyza Zeta brought the dogs as he feels cramped and isn’t built for airplanes.
On their first outing in Medellin Melyza buys him some street pork on 90 Day Fiance. They sit down for beers, and she can’t wait to bring up the other woman again. Tim admits there was a friendship, some texts, some flirting, and then he invited her to hang out. And swears he had no idea that anything could happen. Melyza calls him out for this utter BS. And also calls him selfish. Tim Clarkson says he simply needed to satisfy his “physical urges.” Ouch. Next week: Tim must face Melyza’s mom.
Wait so the only reason Tim confessed was cuz he got caught? And now he trying to down play the cheating saying that he was trying to satisfy his physical urges? Boy bye. Melyza better than me cuz I would have left you crying in your cowboy boots. #90dayfiancetheotherway

Ariela Danielle’s Mom Janice Grills Biniyam Shibre Over Coffee and Popcorn
It’s morning in Ethiopia, and Ariela Danielle and Biniyam wake up rested in a hotel room. The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way cameras pan wide to see Ariela’s mom Janice, cozy in a twin bed next to them. Biniyam even calls her mom. It seems that after Janice saw the two apartments he had ready for her daughter she personally condemned them and moved them in with her at her hotel.
On 90 Day Fiance, they all pile into a taxi to go check out the hospital where Ariela plans to give birth. Janice sits up front and encourages Biniyam to also ask questions. His first one is, “do we have to sleep in a room with you again tonight”? Things go surprisingly well at the hospital. Janice is impressed with the cleanliness, the medication, the flow, and the professional nurses and midwives. So, she’s cool with letting Ariela stay and give birth there.
Biniyam is pretty relieved and suggests they go to a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, on 90 Day Fiance. This consists of sitting on tiny chairs and drinking strong java and eating popcorn. I need this tradition in my life every day. But before anyone can enjoy this crunchy caffeinated siesta, Janice is back to 20 questions. In her best infomercial voice, she wants to know about the American ex. Biniyam jumbles it to sound like he cheated. Ariela is quiet and admits her mom is intimidating. Is that what they call it?

Kenny Niedermeier Still Struggling in Mexico on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
After spitting out street candy and being a little confused about pesos, Kenny Niedermeier still isn’t getting that he’s not in Florida anymore. He tries to get Armando Rubio to hold his hand in public. Armando has already warned him that things are different in Mexico. They could be jumped or hurt for showing PDA as a gay couple. Kenny says they shouldn’t live in fear. But Armando points out that Ken’s been out as a gay man longer than he’s been alive. So, the 90 Day Fiance star needs to be patient.
The two sit underneath a colossal statue of Jesus and hold hands away from the crowds. Armando asks Kenny if he thinks the big guy is ok with them. Kenny says, yes that Jesus stands for love. Armando doesn’t want to hurt Kenny but explains he just needs more time to feel comfortable in his culture and with being openly gay. He also thanks Ken for making him who he is today. The two share a kiss and hope for the best on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

Yazan Abo Horira Gets Support From His Uncle on TOW
Things have been super stressful for Yazan Abo Horira since his American girl Brittany Banks arrived. The last blow up also involved his parents. Who want them married ASAP. Brittany is not divorced yet. So, she’s stalling. An important bit of information that Yazan doesn’t know. So she has to create dramatic outbursts to get him off course of figuring it out. Yazan feels his Uncle Ibrahim could help by talking to his dad on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
The 90 Day Fiance couple go to meet uncle Ibrahim in a cafe where he seems to be holding court. It seems he is kind of like the Michael Corleone of the family Yazan. He wears a cool cap and is enjoying a smoke. He greets him with some sort of secret handshake and kiss combo. Yazan explains that there is trouble between the rents and B. He suggests that Yazan’s dad is a bit conservative.
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Brittany is getting nervous because they are speaking in Arabic, and of course, she can’t understand. Uncle I points out that it is forbidden in their religion to force anyone to convert to Islam. And that she would have to change a lot of things about herself if she did. He does agree to talk to Yazan’s dad to buy them some time. So, Brittany is relieved.
Jihoon’s Mom was acting like a high school mean girl. You don’t laugh when someone just said, “you’ve ruined my life.” And the way her immature son reacted is definitely a tribute to her poor upbringing. She raised a lazy brat. #90dayfiancetheotherway

Deavan Clegg Comes At ‘The Family Jihoon’ on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
Deavan Clegg takes her mom and kids to the Korean market. Daughter Drascilla is an absolute delight. She’s taking it all in and ordering up fresh fish for dinner. Deavan is impressed with Drascilla as she tries kimchi with chopsticks. Cute baby Taeyang even comes up for air as they sample the insect combo appetizer. Deavan’s mom Elicia Clegg isn’t happy with the bug munchies. And thinks they should be on the next flight home. Which the 90 Day Fiance celeb later does – Bye Bye Jihoon.
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Deavan will meet the family Jihoon to ask what happened to the money Jihoon made. That he was putting into his mom’s account. She takes Taeyang in an infant carrier and meets them at a restaurant. Then, Jihoon walks right past her. His dad helps Deavan get seated with the baby. His wife says shut up when he asks her to stand. That standing is not necessary for Deavan.
Deavan whips out her translator to ask questions. Father Jihoon is ultimately respectful. Apologizing and wanting to help and understand. While Jihoon’s mom laughs like this is all some big joke. Mother Jihoon is not very nice. The translator bugs out and starts spewing nonsense about the sun looking at bridegrooms and birds on islands. It’s too much for Jihoon, and he storms out telling Deavan to go back to America. Catch TOW Mondays at 9 on TLC.
