Myriam didn't go to the airport to say goodbye and it was his birthday!!! (I missed that the first time around).  That is not a mixed message, Patrick!  

No, it isn't a mixed message at all.  Of all the doofus dudes on this train wreck of a show, he's got the most sense and that's scary.   I'm actually hoping his dope of a would be girlfriend gives dude a chance even though I know it won't happen.

I'm curious about that too and would like to know exactly what Muslims look like?

In Eastern Europe, many Muslims have fair skin, hair, and light colored eyes, so the answer could be, ‘they can look just like everyone else’.  In other countries where Muslims are the minority population, unless they are in traditional dress, you just might never know unless they volunteered that information or you asked. 

My point being unless the person dressed or acted a certain way, like kneelng for prayers throughout the day, "they" do look like everyone else.

Actually on Monday there's a tell all episode according to my DVR, don't miss it, but it should be the reunion type show.  Which I'm guessing might include a lot of Skype, since I have no idea how they'd get all the couples physically in the same room.

I was pretty sure you might have meant it that way. I’m a Brit, so I’ve often asked similar questions in retort as I smack my head when people say some silly things. 

My post was meant more for inquiring minds who might want to know, but may have been afraid to ask.

There's also a preview up on the TLC site, if you want to spoil yourself a little bit.

Jenny seems like one of those perpetually cranky people; I don't think anything would make her happy.  Granted, we're probably not seeing her best self with Larry, but she just seems miserable all the time.  

That's not cranky, that's disgust. She finally gets a guy to the Phillipines and it's dullard Larry.

Absolutely, but a 20 year old lacks the maturity to understand this intellectually, let alone emotionally.  She’s got  a bad case for Chris. She REALLY is “all in” and hoping because all these other men want her, that he will come to his senses.

Really? I don't get that sense. Yes, she has more chemistry with Chris than with Sean, but Chris is, like, 45 years older than her. If she's "all in", it's got to be because he's been "generous" with her. He looks wealthier and more sophisticated than Sean, and can probably offer Abby more of what she wants ... except a green card. Abby is super calculating.

They are both disgusting old farts. I think she is pretty street smart for her age and is getting what she wants. Now she has to decide if she can settle for Sean and give up Chris and his money and gifts. Being poor and from Haiti she wants out and I am sure she has been well used from an early age. It goes back to why she was in DR at all when she met Chris?? Richer men maybe?

I can't say if she was well used in any sense but she certainly does have street smarts. She is smooth and lets out just the right amount of reaction from what I've seen. Good Lord, Haiti is one of the poorest nations on earth and one had better learn what to do in order to survive. there are people who can play hard, get what they want and never give up parts of themselves if they don't want to. Most of us can't do that.

You've stated a lot of things as though they were facts . . . and unless you are Patrick, Myriam, or Patrick's mother, I'm not sure how you would know anything for sure.

One example is the sentence I quoted above.  The editing may have made it LOOK  this way, but we don't know this to be a fact.  And even if it were, let's say that Patrick talks to Myriam on Monday and says, "I'm coming to Paris on Thursday to meet you and spend time with you.  I'll be there for _____________ (length of time).  All Myriam has to say is, "I am Muslim; I have a boyfriend.  Do not come.  I will not spend time with you."

Many of us who watch reality shows have come to accept the strong arm of editing in what we see.  We learned that some of these 90-day couples are pretty much using the show as a means of getting publicity (Jesse and Darcey, Molly and Luis).  Even Patrick has been on several TV shows.  Being on TV is a lot more fun than having a real job.  I'm in the group who feels that Patrick and Myriam are also a set-up, but that's my opinion; I don't know that for a fact.

I know it from what  Myriam herself said a couple of weeks ago.  That Patrick informed her a few days before. She also said she was not into her father's traditions and that her brother was a little more traditional than she was. I agree she could have told him "don't come" but maybe he had purchased the plane ticket and she felt guilty about that, or maybe he was pushy or maybe she changed her mind when he arrived shirtless and back flipping in Paris or maybe the entire story is staged.

For the rest we are not in the spoiler thread so obviously whatever we may be stating here is our belief, based on the 12episodes, and we may be right or wrong. If we were meant to talk about things we know to be facts ONLY, guess what we would have nothing to discuss here. Saying that Jesse uses the show as a means of getting publicity is an assumption as well,  unless you are Jesse.

I'm not talking about her looks. I'm more about the mindset.

There's a difference between I have a catholic background and I'm churchy.

Same thing, having an Algerian and probably Muslim father doesn't mean one is actually religious but people tend to assume you are when your name is ...or you family is from....

Coming from a muslim family it's hardly acceptable to be  on TV like   "I'm flirting with 2 guys and it's  Ok",   unless your muslim family is really open or you don't practice the religion  which I find logical since she said she was not into traditions. I doubt religion would be important enough to her to be a deal breaker, if she were religious at all.

 

Ps: A little black dress +Adidas shoes are absolutely trendy  on Instagram

is tonight the last episode?

Tonight is the first of a two part finale. So next week is the end. Maybe they will do a reunion show after that, though.
