Larry and his 401K need a Facebook page.

Oh, somebody should create a twitter account & post updates from Larry's 401k!

How does having a 401K allow someone to quit their job and travel? Sound like she cashed in what she had saved. Cashing in a 401K when you are in your 20s isn't going to net  much, since she didn't been contribute very long. If she took the cash after quitting, instead of rolling it over, she is subject to a 10% penalty, plus federal tax. Not a very smart move for someone who has a finance degree. And thanks for the lesson about Roth IRAs. She is just trying to prove she knows about money. 

I know people who have a passion for travel and that's what they do. If what we see WRT to Courtney in Spain is indicative of  "Traveling, freespirited Courtney", she is a big zero.  

It depends on how her 401k was organized/invested.  With Roth, she wouldn’t pay taxes - just the penalty.  If invested well, she could have a nice return that makes the 10% penalty meaningless. It sounds like she also had inheritance money.  I also follow Dave Ramsey’s plan, like her parents. I don’t have a 401k but I have TSP (federal employee version of 401k) and I have it structured as Dave Ramsey advised and it has done very well over the past decade.  Reading her post, I think that if I didn’t have a family, I could possibly draw from it and backpack too. 

All that said, I think she plans on inheriting a lot when her parents die — so she has stopped working.

Picked this up from the Facebook group, regarding Larry, quoting Jason Hitch:

”Looks like there is serious talk of he quitting his job and living with her for 2-3 months while waiting for K1 approval.”

Larry is officially an idiot.

Yeah, about Cortney finding traveling less expensive than having a mortgage or lease...sure it is when you invite yourself to visit someone and then inform them that you will be staying with them and they will be responsible for all expenses and entertainment.

If Corny Ranch Dip was as worldly as a world traveler as she claims to be, she would already know few people in Europe have air conditioning of any kind.  Those little wall units are popular in the Caribbean due to concrete construction making ductwork a nonstarter. Malaga has a very warm climate.  

I remember we went to visit relatives in the UK when I was 10 and they had a heat wave. We sweated and sweltered because we were used to central air conditioning and back then, they didn't have those compact room units.  Even if they could buy them, they would be too expensive to justify needing them for one week out of the year.

Nothing sexier than an unemployed man with no financial safety net living in my family's house, insulting their food all while wearing a big white baseball hat.  How would that even help the visa situation?  With no income wouldn't the powers that be be inclined to deny the visa?  What about Larry's kids?  Is it a good decision to be without health insurance or money when you have children?  On the other hand, watching Larry living in sub par living quarters would make for good TV.

We were in London and Paris and Rome last year during a heatwave.  

There was no a/c pretty much everywhere.  You just have to make-do.  Complaining gets you nowhere.

Exactly! You suck it up and be even more thankful for your creature comforts when you get home.

Larry has one of the few ‘good’ McDonalds jobs in the US and he’s going to quit it? What an idiot.

If Jenny wanted to hook up with a guy with no 401K and no job, I doubt Larry would be her first choice.

She might be able to do better than Larry, but she could also do far worse. At least with this one, she’s got his balls in a matchbox and he has to ask her permission to use them. And, best of all, he wants to marry her, and she doesn’t have to have dead eyed sex with him just yet.

Any word on how TLC is going to do the Tell All?  Will it be just the US ppl and the foreigners on skype?  Or did they actually fly in these yahoos?

A/C is a whole 'nother subject. They think it's unhealthy to go from hot to cold and back so fast. "You're gonna get sick!" They're just not used to it and really think it's so wrong. Big subject, I haven't been able to convince anybody to be thankful for A/C. They curse it. Now, I too like windows I can open.

Are we surprised he is an idiot?  

He is going to live in her native country for 3 months and not get any nookie? That girl has it made!  

After a glass and half of wine I started to giggle about Larry's big white baseball hat and wondered if he has a shower hat like that, you know something for all occasions.

He’s so stupid that Jenny could replace him with another Filipino Cupid lookalike and he’d never notice.

Why is no one picking up on the fact that Myriam is a video producer, and former tv presenter?   (And originally from New York?)  I still say their entire appearance on the show was a stunt to advance both of their media careers.

Google doesn't mention anything about her being originally from NY are you assuming based on her IG name?

What's her FB? She must have lived in France for awhile, I wonder how she got citizenship or does she not have it?

Looking at her FB, personally I wouldn't put too much stock in her being from NY. Facebook about sections vary greatly on accuracy depending on what the person is trying to convey.

I missed the first round of this so I'm binge watching season 1 today.  I see Paul and Karine are coming back.  Him and all his stupid luggage are cracking me up.  Also he spent so much time researching every bug and disease in the Amazon but couldn't learn a few basic phrases in Portuguese ?  Darcy and Jesse, not sure about them. She's so needy she'd scare anyone off. Not sure if he might actually be interested in her or not, she doesn't give him a chance she just keeps babbling about getting married.  She reminds me of Molly.

This is probably the same info as the People article above, but it doesn't want to open for me. Paul and Karine from Brazil and Darcey and Jesse from Netherlands are slated to appear along with five new couples on August 5. Can't prettify link on my tablet:

https://starcasm.net/before-the-90-days-season-2-premiere-date-and-cast-announced-with-paul-karine-darcey-jesse-and-5-new-couples/

What a clusterfuck this is shaping up to be...As weirdly mesmerizing as it was last season to watch sad sack Pole and Creepy Dutch Boy and Cry Baby Drunky Girlfriend, I just dont know if I give a shit anymore. They were so pathetic. And the new folks look horribly boring. They always do this on TLC and Bravo shows - the first season is a delicious train wreck of epic proportions and then the second season sucks. Alas...Darcy, weep on girl, weep on...

ETA: Whatever happened to Jenny and that sad sack, Larry?

He likes to post and delete on his Facebook page and the man is barely literate. He could stand to learn a lot of English, too. 

Jesse came here for the After Show and I think that is when they filmed, so it's not like it's even recent news. The last I heard about Larry, he had quit his job, was purchasing an RV and planned to travel the country and film for a YouTube channel. I don't know if he did or not because I never cared enough to check, but don't remember seeing any updates about him when reading the tabloidish sites, either. No one cares about sad sack Larry, I guess.
