This week’s 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days had Zied Hakimi losing his cool when Rebecca Parrott takes off her jacket in the local hookah bar and sets Tunisian tongues wagging. Plus, Love is a Battlefield saw Tom Brooks dealing with a pint-sized pain in the arse.
Caesar Mack loses his luggage and Maria’s engagement ring — but not his blind hope. And Benjamin finally arrives in Kenya and meets Akinyi. I don’t think Pat Benatar had these train wrecks in mind when she sang. Let’s hit the trenches and see who, if anyone, emerged a winner.
Zied Hakimi’s Friends Meet Rebecca Parrott on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days
Zied Hakimi takes his American girl Rebecca Parrott to meet his friends at the soccer field. The 90 Day Fiance, Zied, suits up in what looks like an ill-fitting gym uniform from middle school. They arrive at the field and he runs off like a boy ditching his mom when he sees his buddies. They yuk it up while Rebecca stands tense on the sidelines. She calls out to him and he slinks over. She wants to be introduced.
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Rebecca Partott wants to know if the guys like Americans. They do, but they have some questions for her too. For instance how old she is?And why she looks nothing like her pictures that Zied Hakimi showed them. The guys also want to see her tattoos. And are shocked when she tells them one arm alone cost about 3k. It’s all pretty awkward and Rebecca admits she feels old. She looks like a sad soccer mom with this gang.
Rebecca is a bit overwhelmed and ready to get her drink on. She styles Zied Hakimi’s hair with blow dryer and brush into some variation of a half-man bun. She wants to wear a sleeveless silk back shirt to the bar. Zied is like no way. This is Tunisia.You cannot wear that. But she insists because she had a controlling Moroccan husband. We know, we know. They argue, and Rebecca Parrott agrees to don a leather jacket.
Rebecca is driving me crazy! "It's normal to wear this." Like she's going out on the town in Atlanta with those angry raccoon eyes. Bitch you're in TUNISIA. "I don't want a controlling guy". Girl you're fishing in the wrong pool. #90DayFiance #90dayfiancebeforethe90days

Zied Loses His Cool At Hookah Bar
If there’s anything Zied Hakimi likes more than heavily-filtered selfies from older ladies, it’s smoking hookah. The two settle in and he pouts in between puffs of his ice grape mint. Rebecca Parrott is all up in his face with her black eye shadow. She keeps saying this is me. It’s still me. It doesn’t matter what I wear. Even if I look like I’m starring in a community theatre production of Grease.
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Rebecca decides to push it even more and take off her jacket. The guy next to her stares at her tattoos. This sets Zied off and he jumps up and starts yelling at the dude. Who says he was just admiring the tattoos. He likes them. Rebecca says she thinks he’s going to hit the guy. Zied Hakimi admits he’s a jealous and controlling guy. Better slip something more than mango in that hookah pipe before you tell him you’re still married, Rebecca Parrott.

Jeniffer And Tim Aren’t Off To a Good Start On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days
Tim Malcolm is on the last flight to meet his Colombian dream girl Jeniffer. Whom he routinely mentions is out of his league. He puts gold eye masks on to reduce puffiness. And again mentions that Jeniffer is drop dead gorgeous and perhaps out of his league. One person who would definitely agree is Jenniffer. As she considers herself out of anyone’s league. Plus, says any man she chooses should consider themselves lucky. She says she’s been a model since she was a kid. And calls herself a “princess warrior”. (Insert eye roll emoji)
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Jeniffer joins her pals for a pool side dirty martini and to dish about Tim. When her friend asks to see a picture of him she pulls up a pic of his Ferrari first. Priorities right? She also brings up the problem of Tim’s pesky ex Veronica. The pals agree that this could be a problem. And that Tim doesn’t know who he’s dealing with.
Jeniffer and daughter Violetta fetch Tim at the airport. He arrives with a giant teddy bear in tow for Violetta. Jeniffer is happy and there seems to be chemistry. Until they get in the cab and Tim gets all weird. He won’t look at her and says it’s because his head is too large for the taxi. Tim really isn’t the one with the big head here. He makes things more awkward by talking about Veronica. This sets Jeniffer off. She starts yelling at him and Violetta seems to disappear out of her car seat for a bit – then magically reappear. And Tim has some sort of big secret he still needs to drop on her. Not the best start.

Tom Ends Up Bloody After a Night With Drunko Darcey on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days
As Darcey Silva and Tom Brooks cab it to the Airbnb after an awkward dinner, he points out sights along the way. Darcey, who knows no bounds on foolishness, asks if that’s where they will get married. Tom keeps talking, ignoring her drivel. They arrive to the spacious rental. Darcey is all oooh and ahhh. Until he points out her room on the first floor. He will be residing upstairs in the master. The desperate diva whines about the room having a coldness and a weird energy. Nope, Darcey that’s actually just you.
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Tom and Darcey sip wine. And she compliments his “debonairness”. And then she starts to whimper that no one has ever treated her this way. He says that this is normal. Who has she been choosing? She ugly cries about every woman wanting a non-oaky Chardonnay and respect. And the D… The first night. Tom looks a little scared and said he hopes she doesn’t carry on this way every time he does something nice.
She demands to see his room. Darcey likes the coziness of this room and rolls around on the bed lie a fish out of water. She cries again because she doesn’t want to sleep alone downstairs. Tom says he’ll stay with her if she can accept his rather English pajamas. She makes one last attempt to get laid, but Tom isn’t taking the twarful bait. In the morning, he brings coffee with a tissue shoved up his nose. And tells Darcey she snored and whacked him in the face. There is even blood on the sheets. Darcey of course remembers none of this.
Tom Breaks Down Darcey’s Delusions
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Tom planned a boat ride on the river Thames for Darcey. She is either still drunk from the night before or just can’t walk in her stilettos as Tom has to hold her up as she walks down the steps. Perhaps, it’s a little of both. On the boat, she reverts to the Minnie Mouse helium voice and spouts things like “ I feel like I’m in a fairytale”. And “I Love You”. Crickets from Tom.
As further proof that Darcey ruins everything, she gets misty and asks where they stand. Because in her Chardonnay-soaked brain, they’ve been a couple for four years. Even though they had never met. And she was banging Jesse. Tom admits he has seen other women. But told them he was going to give them a pause while she was here. She asks when he stopped seeing them. He cheerily says five or six days ago. Oh wow, here come the waterworks. Hope she doesn’t flood the boat…
So I donno if Darcy is aware of this but the British are famous for their stiff upper lip. Not really big on emotions. Darcy inher natural habitat: #90dayfiance #90dayfiancebeforethe90days pic.twitter.com/Wb57wZeFep

Omar Says Yes To Avery’s Dress on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days
Avery Mills and mom Teri are off to bond over wedding dress shopping. But then Omar Albakkour tells Teri he’s tagging along. Teri wishes it could just be a mom/daughter thing. But Avery welcomes him. She wants a sparkly dress. And tries a few on. She really likes the second one. Omar reacts to it as if he just drank bad milk. It’s too tight he says. This sends Teri into a rant. Well she used to wear form-fitting clothes. Do we tell Omar what he can wear? The third dress is the charm. And Teri whips out the plastic to pay for it.
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, the trio heads to a post-shopping lunch. Omar graciously attempts to explain the menu. Teri turns up her nose at the mention of eggplant. But goes hard for a Long Island Iced Tea. She shames Avery for turning down alcohol. She explains that Avery used to jump at the chance to drink under age. Omar explains that alcohol is harmful.
Teri continues being an ugly American by reading about Muslim wives on Google. That they can be slapped around and are prisoners. She shoves her phone out and says its in the Kor-Ran. Avery says it’s really not, it’s antiquated. Kind of like the Old Testament. Omar promises he’s not going to hit Avery. Terri says Avery will get tired of him telling her what to do. And notes that this Long Island Iced Tea is nowhere near as good as the ones at Applebee’s half-price happy hour.

Caesar Mack’s Livin’ On Ramen and Hope
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, Caesar Mack is headed to Cancun, Mexico to meet the woman he’s spent over 40 grand on over the last five years. There’s one small hitch. Maria isn’t answering calls and texts. Caesar chews on dollar store Ramen and watches old videos of the icy blonde saying I love you. He’s not paying rent or any bills for that matter. Producers ask if he’s worried that she’s not responding. He says he still has hope.
The next day, broke but optimistic Caesar boards the plane. And still no word from Maria. Things go from bad to worse. As when he arrives in Mexico, they’ve lost his luggage. Which contains a fake diamond ring and chocolate panties. Somewhere a TSA worker is having a pretty fun night. Caesar soldiers on. He admires the view from his room and says he will get the bags tomorrow. And still no word from Maria… Till next week…
