S01.E03: Language of Love

Recommended Posts

I grew up and still live in Orlando.  Yeah, I met and married my husband here, so it isn't all that difficult.  Also, our families here are just fine, thank you.  

As a Catfish (and Nev and Max) devotee, the second Courtney said "male model" and the lack of videochatting, I pretty much assume the dude (if it is a dude) is a catfish.  Can't wait to see this blow up in her face!  Yay!

Karine seems wayyyyy younger than her stated age.  I finally paid attention to one of the title pieces and realize that Paul is 34.  I'm also 34...I almost died at the very different experiences he and I are having at this point in our lives.  The next time I think I done messed up and my life sucks, I'll think about Paul sitting on that curb with all his luggage.  B/c I'm an asshole. LOL.   

Amsterdam is quite beautiful.  Jesse and Darcy seem to be both weird people.  Between Jesse's weird bossiness and falling back on "oh, stupid American"-isms and Darcy's bubbleheadedness and insanely unsubtle push for a wedding ring, I'm not sure which I dislike more.  I love when crazies get together, but these two are grating.  Will this stop me from watching?  No, I'm in for Darcy and Jesse being idiots.

Abby and Sean...still creepy af.  

As another poster mentioned in a previous post, I am heartbroken we didn't get to see some of the first meet ups between our 90 Day Vets.  I would pay for the pay per view of going back in time for Danielle and Mo.

SoshulMeedya (I just got your username...I'm cackling), I'm over Danielle and Mo at this point...the last episode of 90DF:HEA? felt like the true tattered bookend to those two crazy bastards.  BUT, man, I would have really enjoyed seeing the start of the trainwreck.  Like, was it like a worse version of Nicole and Azan?  Was she pawing at him?  I think it would have been a riot.

Also...I'm agreeing with the sentiment that all our American compatriots are looking ROUGH this episode.  Upon rewatch, Darcy is so pathetic (with the chair and Facebook etc) and Courtney is so dumb to fall for the "Spanish" "model".  

Also when your girlfriends cackle at a question about your love life, you got real problems.  Sounds like Courtney got catfished by a dude posing as a Bollywood star.  This is why you need South Asian friends!  One look and I would have been, "yo girl, errr, eemmm, that's Shah Rukh Khan...so..."  While I live in Orlando and am South Asian, I am NOT volunteering.

There isn't a single likeable American in this bunch for me. Cortney lost me with the " I traveled the world and other cultures are more family-oriented and not as corrupted." Spare me, honey. You just got done introducing your parents who have been married forever.

Right. Cortney's stripper/porn star Spaniard is more family-oriented and less corrupted than Americans.  Give me a break. Look at your parents, Cortney, and follow their example.  They have a long marriage and seem like a wholesome, sensible couple, family-oriented, hard working and not corrupted.  Where did they go wrong with Courtney?

That Cortney is willfully ignoring all these red flags, leads me to believe she is either desperate or stupid. 

Or both.

Jesse is very rude. The woman just got off the plane, cut her a little break.  OTO, Darcy is so so desperate, so pathetic, if I were Jesse I would put her back on the next plane back to the U.S.

If Jesse wants to live and work in the U.S. he better cut the crowd crap of all Americans this and all Americans that.  How would he know?

Darcy I  kind of feel sorry for. Go home, find a decent guy and spend time with your daughters.   Or just spend time with your daughters.

Yes, spend time with your daughters.  And stay away from the plastic surgeon, tone down the makeup, give your daughters' their clothes back and find some more suitable for a woman your age (and I don't believe you are 42.  More like 50.)

Note to Cortney's mom:  if your blood pressure is so high that you have blood splatters in your eyeballs, you are burning your kidneys to dust. Get some bp pills and start saving up for dialysis. 

If Courtney were my daughter, my eyes would bleed too, and I don't even have high bp.

I'm finally catching up on the episodes and haven't caught up on reading forums / haven't commented on any yet; I paused this episode because I had to post.

I don't think I've ever used the word "thirsty" to describe anything other than actual, physical thirst.

But Darcy? She is so damn thirsty she might as well be on her 3rd day of being lost in the desert in a sand storm. 

I'm cringing so hard & feel so much second-hand embarrassment.

Darcy showers, but her hair isn't wet, and she's still wearing makeup. How do you do that?

Top and tails, aka Whore's Bath.

Except I guess she didn't do the Top.

Did anyone notice that Karine said that she likes "light-skinned" men? I know that Brazil has some issues with colorism, but that statement still stood out to me. Perhaps she equates light skin with wealth.

Jesse is uptight and judgey.  He pisses me off.  But, her neediness and continual marriage comments also pisses me off.  In other words, I'm thoroughly enjoying myself.

If I was Darcey, I'd want to check into a hotel for the first few days, just to make sure I didn't hate Jesse upon meeting him. I realise they have been facetiming  or whatever, but then you jump right into living with him for 6 weeks? Recipe for disaster. Get yourself a hotel room for the first few days, just in case. Plus it would give you a place to put all your crap and you would have a bathroom to yourself for a while. 

BTW, that dress that Darcey was wearing when they went out to dinner looked awful on her. Like she was stuffed in to it.

I'm still trying to figure out Jesse's endgame is and his open disdain for her isn't helping in that. 

What does Paul do for a living? And Cortney? Talk about zero life experience. I figured Cortney, having traveled, would be wiser that to get with someone who sends her soft porn pics and won't videochat. Paul is what, 34? What a zero. And the droopy drawers aren't helping.

Yeah, he seems like a jerk, but it is extremely irritating to go sight-seeing with someone wearing stilettos she can't even walk in. He said he suggested she wear sneakers and she refused.

Cortney is either desperate or reallly dumb. Neither is a good look. She seems sweet, but extremely naive. Her friends (who are gorgeous, damn!), seem really smart. Why hasn't their common sense rubbed off on Cortney?

Abby and I come from the same culture and I am stunned that she had not one older boyfriend, but 2! I definitely don't think she's fallen in love...Port-au-Prince has immense poverty and she's just trying to escape it. I don't blame her, but ew to Paul and Chris.

I'm 44 and seriously - I look YOUNGER than Darcy.  I think it's either the work she's had done or she's really pushing closer to 50.

Definitely has to be the work, fillers, lips.  Did you notice she didn't look any different after removing her makeup ?  Btw is there any face that fillers ever improved? It's amazing how many people get them to look younger only to get the opposite (and weird) effect!

Darcy and the Dutch boy have no chemistry, she is so awkward.  I loved the scene on the bikes, she is huffing and puffing and Dutch boy says they only burned 55 calories! She seems way too desperate and Dutch boy senses it.  Wondering if the Rijks Museum can be rented for weddings? Every word out of her mouth is marriage wedding, ring etc...She bought herself a ring to signify their love?  Oy vey, a big fake ring   This is going to be a crazy train wreck. I bet she has boiled some bunnies in her past, I can see this guy ghosting her after he gets her on a plane out of Amsterdam.

I know it must be hard to have your first meeting filmed but with every couple after the initial meeting, hugs and kisses there seems to be an endless loop of a conversation about how they can't believe your really here etc...nothing deeper. 

The girl going to Spain to meet that guy makes me sad, how does she think this will really go down?  This gorgeous guy who wants you to fly 5000 miles to meet him won't Skype with you? RED FLAG! Won't call you? RED FLAG!  I have a bridge I'd like to sell her.

Amazon couple is going to be all sorts of weird, language barrier is the least of their problems.  First time meeting parents?  When they skyped she never pointed the camera towards her parents to introduce them to each other?

Seems like some people will go out of their way to make life difficult and we get to watch!

Every season, Sharp Entertainment and TLC are good at picking a bunch of losers and at least one couple that you know that can legitimately make it and is not doing it for ephemeral TV fame.   This season doesn't have even have that almost sane couple.   The formula is simple, reality TV is cheap to make, you basically cover some of the expenses of the people and put them in front of cameras. ...... just to be on TV people would do anything....Darcy and Jesse in their bathrobes getting into bed with just their underwear.   I don't let family relatives who visit me see me in my bathrobe.  This couple allows a TV crew and lighting and all that for a bit of fame.  Darcy is a desperate housewife in clinical need attention.   Who takes off from their life for 6 weeks to meet a guy??!!!   With children behind!!!    There isn't one decent couple in this whole season and that doesn't give balance to the show.

Of all the couples, none seem more fame hungry as Chantel and Pedro, particularly Chantel.  Pedro is doing it for the money he sends back home and the visa.  Chantel is crazy enough to think she can make it on TV.  She sees herself as the host who does the last episode at the end of each season.   I like that lady and I like that the producers picked her, even thought she's not your typical perfectly good looking TV person.  She knows what she's doing and she speaks very well.  Appears to have studied journalism.   If Chantel, wants to work in this overpopulated field, she needs to be humble first and then try to learn; start at the bottom and work your way up.    Chantel needs to stop talking with her teeth clenched, that is not sexy or appealing.

Jesse, like Mohammed, is smart and calculating, albeit deceitful.  Danielle and Darcy are the legal tickets into America.   These guys know that those women are just temporary.   They ladies get to brag about having a semi good looking guy for a while and they get a couple of rolls in the sack for a 3 months, then they relationship starts to falter.   But these are planned moves and I think that in their heart of hearts, the ladies also know that those young fellows are not going to stay with them long term.   It's an exchange of goods.   Same for the young girls and the older gentlemen with mean$.    I will buy 190 pairs of panties and go bang this girl for 3 weeks.   Some people do this math in their head.

 

Sharp and TLC get a whole dollar for each 5 cents they invest.  Everyone gets their face on TV and gets the free marketing that comes with it.   Look at Loren, all of a sudden she was participating in a Tourette's syndrome event.   Do you think that in the normal course of her life, that young girl gets involved in that at that level?  I doubt it.   She seemed so out of place there, it was obvious that her participation was an staged event for the show.     What's most disturbing about this show is the lack of clue and common sense by most of the participants.   One has to be quite desperate to "fall in love" with someone over pictures and travel half the world to meet them.   How about phone calls?  How about video chat?   But again, that is what sells.

I'm getting tired of the whole thing and will soon stop watching it because most of the time I'm screaming at the TV for how fake it is or how clueless they are.  Way I see it, there are many more interesting things to watch.

I live in a large US city.  (Miami, San Francisco, Philly, NYC, Boston, etc, pick one).   I look at Darcy and she just reaffirms how plastic surgery is a real problem this day and age.  I have seen women start with a nose job, then having their skin pulled, then a tummy tuck, then doing their breast again.   It's like an addiction.  I have yet to meet one person who has only had one procedure.   One brings the next an the next.   Darcy is on her 2nd lipo and you can feed an Somalian neighborhood on what she spends on botox.  Someone needs to tell her to just go natural, take those damn eyelashes off and spend your money on a gym and a bicycle.   I wished participants read all these comments and made a point to improve their lives with what is legitimate.   Darcy needs therapy pronto.

You have to watch Catfish, it happens all the time, my mouth drops every time!  Every show is "He's always busy when I want to videochat"  yet they want to marry the person haaaaa  Even Courtney's father used the word.  Guaranteed that guy she's texting to is even creepier than the fake pics he's using.

If I ever was on those dating apps, any dude who had a highly stylized shirtless beefcake pics or shirtless selfies taken in a bathroom would get left swiped - hard and fast. Sure, by all means show me the goods. I wouldn't mind regular old shirtless vacay beach or poolside pics but something about the other kind of pics just screams fuckboy to me.

My tremendous powers of perception are telling me that Jesse isn't digging Darcy's pheromones. A person who has called himself disciplined and focused calling a love interest chaotic and impulsive does not a love match make. Plus he started getting that thousand yard 'hello darkness my old friend' stare as the episode progressed. 3/4 way through the episode he was here:

giphy.gif 

And the chick just landed!!! 

Progressively throughout the episode their interactions became more stilted and awkward. I found myself wanting to watch it through my fingers like a horror movie but of course, I didn't because I didn't want to miss one single solitary minute of this 20 car pileup. 

Darcy? How you gonna mention marriage/engagement at least half a dozen times and you haven't even been in the country a full 24 hours yet? That was just embarrassing and thirsty. The only time I felt truly sympathetic towards her was when she mentioned feeling insecure about her body.

I can't help it - I like Jesse. Not like, like but I like his pragmatism and his directness. Sure he can try to be more diplomatic and work on his delivery but he hasn't been wrong. Yes remove makeup before sleep. Yes wear sneakers instead of 7 inch $1k stilettos to walk/tour on cobblestone. Yes, take your nasty shoes off before sitting on the bed. I actually cringed when Darcy sat on his bed after a long day of traveling with her shoes still on. That's a personal trigger for me.  I do think Jesse is thirsty and sees financial/personal advantages to hooking up with Darcy but I would not put him in Mahammit category -- YET.  Jesse's haircut is the worst though! 

I know Amsterdam is a cycling town, but I also think Jesse was trying to get her to work out on the sly. 

Cortney seems .... simple. 

Sometimes Abby's mask slips and she gets the Ben Affleck 'hello darkness my old friend' stare too, but hell, she lives in an abjectly poor nation and this dude is making it rain panties, ipads and laptops. You do you girl. I wouldn't feel as skeevy with this relationship if the age difference wasn't quite so large and Sean wasn't quite so fixated on skin color. Sometimes I think the word fetish is too easily thrown around, especially when it appears the object of such fetish isn't of European origin. For instance, if someone (whatever their race) will only date/marry blonds with blue eyes I don't think I've ever heard them referred to as having a fetish.  That being said, I'm giving Sean the side eye.

Desert, I'm not confusing them.  I bet my first born that Chantel is aiming for a career on TV.  She's smarter than Paola though.   Pao is just dumb and already started discussing leaving the relationship to pursue her "whoring dreams".   I'm not in that industry but I think reggaeton video model has to be the lowest of the low.    How do you leave a good looking engineer from a good family for dreams of "modeling".  Hundreds of thousands of women go into this thinking they are going to be the next Christy Turlington.   Paola gives me a bad feeling, a girl who would do anything, starting by disrespecting her main relationship for two minutes of fame.   Girl, that guy married you!!!!  Smarten up.

Chantel is NOT nursing material.  That girl is too superficial for that.   Would trust Chantel to put an IV on your arm or to extract blood?   Nurses care for other people, it just oozes out of them.....and they are some of the nicest people you meet at hospitals, many times nicer than doctors.   Chantel doesn't have that vibe.

I'm sad that Abby has so few choices that this is viable option for her to get out of Haiti. It's just too bad she has to allow 2 old geezers to drool over her. Just gross. And Sean needs to watch all the 90 day episodes from seasons past and present. I'm sure Abby is a package deal, her family members won't be far behind. I wonder if he realizes that.

Karine is so cute!  Far too young for Our Poor Paul, but she is completely adorable.  And yes, there is a lot of skin color prejudice in Brazil, so he would be more desirable with his blue eyes and light complexion.  But they are both ninnies for not figuring out that being unable to be communicate "is a lot harder than I thought it would be."  No duh.  Guess what, Paul...you find someone in the Brazilian Outback, chances are NOBODY is going to speak English.  You want an English-speaking Brazilian woman?  Go to Boston.  There're gazillions of them there. 

Jesse and Darcie:  OMG.  These two are going to kill each other, but somehow Darcie will figure out a way to make it seem like Romeo and Juliet: "we loved each other so much but we couldn't be together so we both had to die."  I am Team Jesse.  I would make Darcie walk for miles on cobblestones if she insisted on wearing those ridiculous shoes.  And let's ride our bikes up this mountain...(I know there aren't any mountains in the Netherlands).  Torture her, Jesse!  She also has a TERRIBLE smile.  And that's one ugly big-ass ring. And I kinda hate the camel-hair coat Jesse wears.

Cortney:  Dip!  RANCH dip!  With pretzels!  Do you think the Spanish Porn Star is going to want to eat that?  I would like to think that someone who had the balls to travel solo through the world would be able to stand on her own two feet and not need a man to "complete her."  She's a 26-year old baby.  Get your own apartment/house, get a job and be happy.  Of course, who wouldn't want a three week vacation in Spain?  I'd take it, even if the Porn Star turns out to be a fraud.  Have a great time.  You're in Spain, for heaven's sake

Abby and Sean:  Abby is a CHILD, not a woman, Sean.  Sean is never ever ever going to forget about Chris the Former Boyfriend.  Should the marriage happen, should it last thirty years, he will always be thinking that Abby is involved with Chris.  He will never let it drop.  And the Air BNB, who arranged that?  She seems very comfortable there...has Sean been paying for her to live there?

PoeticLicensed, Abby has done this before (get older men to buy her things).   That deep laugh that you see is her real excitement about leaving all that shit behind and that soon she will have running water through your apartment, and eat Corn Flakes for breakfast   It is very sad that this is her only option, but think of the other girls in her neighborhood, prettier but not smarter, who are just left behind.    Abby is smart enough to NOT introduce her parents now, that comes later.  Abby is playing the "long" game here.    Because if they guy sees her parents now, he may realize this isn't actually a dream.  By the way, what kind of man proposes marriage to a girl without knowing where she actually lives or meeting her parents?   Dude, you're proposing to someone in the street.   Pretty Woman was a movie.  Wake the fcuk up!

I was embarrassed for Darcy during the bike scene.  I'm older than Darcy but I can ride a bike better, further, without the screaming and careening.  I also would have the self confidence to say "you're going too fast."  I really didn't think she was going to be this big of a car wreck.

I'm finally catching up on the episodes and haven't caught up on reading forums / haven't commented on any yet; I paused this episode because I had to post.

I don't think I've ever used the word "thirsty" to describe anything other than actual, physical thirst.

But Darcy? She is so damn thirsty she might as well be on her 3rd day of being lost in the desert in a sand storm. 

I'm cringing so hard & feel so much second-hand embarrassment. 

Darcy is a textbook case of middle aged crazy. She thinks she's a 22 year old hottie. Sadly, she could be a very very attractive woman. But she's pathetic mutton dressed as lamb.

And hello, while we're here--did anyone else notice that in Jesse's talking heads there are all these "Dutch" props? A windmill, a big bunch of tulips, wooden shoes. I was looking for some Gouda cheese, Heineken beer, Droste chocolate.....Holy moly, show! Way to lay on the cultural stereotypes!

Oh, and how did I forget Darcy buying  herself a massive ring to signify her relationship? The desperation just drips off of her. 

I may have missed it, but has she said what she does for a living? She has Louboutins and Chanel bags and can afford massive expensive jewelry. 

Darcey has her own fashion company with her sister called House of 11. Not sure if it is sucessful or not, because I never heard of it before.

Darcy reminds me of a younger version of Donatella Versace with black hair.

OMG you are right on the money there!
