S02.E01: And So It Begins

Recommended Posts

Ricky...when somebody says, "Oh that's cute," in response to a heartfelt or sweet sentiment, they aren't feeling you, bruh. When you're slated to visit and you're thousands of kilometres away and they're emotionally distant, it may not just be nerves, buddy.

It takes 2.5 seconds to do a Google Image Search. I'm tempted to do it right now with a screenshot of Melissa.

I feel so bad for Ricky's daughter, who seems both sweet and smart. 

She reminds me of Nicole’s brother who is also smart

Ricky is carrying a fanny pack and it’ll all be okay!  I think someone just earned himself a new nickname. 

Fanny Ricky!

Lol do it, they're going to make us look at this pathetic man for weeks before they reveal that it was a catfish, which everyone but Ricky knows asst this point.

Ugh, Paul is creepy and weird. Stop hanging on your mother like that. His mother also seemed weirded out by it. 

Well, Paul admits he is a mama’s boy

I wonder if mom read comments after last season and realized they needed to dial it back.

Wow, that scene of Darcey walking through the airport in her new outfit from Thirst Trap™.  This is sad to watch!

She makes me sad all the time.

The Hell!!!!!  "Work on yourself then come back!!!"

He's already belittling her for not being a good tour guide. Yikes. Sometimes I wonder if he even likes her. 

All he does is belittle her. Can’t stand his smug, controlling face.

Is it really necessary to bring the baby with Rachel to fly to meet her man for the first time? 

She doesn’t have anyone else to watch her though. 

I’m not saying I agree, but at that age the baby is free (no airline seat, doesn’t eat mich solids etc) so I understood why she brought her. She said she’s not on terms with the biodad, and her father may not be able/willing to care for an infant. Her ex husband may be a good man but to take your child’s half sibling who’s an INFANT (not a school aged child who can handle basic needs) is a lot. 

So basically she couldn’t get a sitter and she wanted to go.

Darcey looks much, much younger and prettier with lighter hair. She said somewhere (social media?) that she had fillers removed from her face. Looks tremendously better. WTF at Jesse's attitude in the car. He's a jerk. Darcey is desperate for love but she's not a bad person and deserves better.

The UK boyfriend had to get a visa to travel to the US. UK passports holders only have to do that if they've been convicted of certain crimes or have traveled to certain countries since March 2011. There are a few other conditions that would require a travel visa. His ocnvictions for violent crimes will certainly mean that he won't be able to get a spousal or fiancee visa.

The guy going to Colombia is getting catfished.

Paul and his foot lockers, OMG.

The Georgia woman with the Nigerian prince finacee is cringeworthy.

She brought him a MAGA hat LOL

Ah.  We begin again.

2 initial observations:

1) Why are the kids on these shows always considerably more mature than both their stated age and their parents?  Like.  It is b/c they have to raise themselves and that made them grow up faster?

2) Most of these people are going to the airport in the rain or terrible weather.  If I were a believer, I would think that sweet baby Jeebus was weeping.  But, WTF do I know?

Let's start with our two season losers....Jesse and Darcy are still are damn hot mess.  He very quickly fell into his creepy, abusive pattern and she into her little girl in need of validation pattern, but now in NYC.  I don't know that I'm emotionally ready for loser Pole again.  Creepy Mother Paul finding his and Karine's sex toys made me want to bleach my brain.

Of the newbies, I can't wait to see the scary lady in Nigeria and see dude going to Colombia get catfished (bc you know that is where we are headed).   I didn't care to remember names yet.

OMG this show! I just got TLC back from not having it for a year and wow, these people!

Darcy lives like 30 minutes from me and that's both funny and odd. Like girl, Jesse is NOT into you. What was up with him in the car? What a douche.

Not sure of Paul's motivations but dang if he doesn't need a girl from the States. And bringing her 8 month old along? What in the what? 

Ricky haven't you heard of Google or you know Catfish? These people DON"T do any research!

I had a feeling I was being catfished and sure enough I was, and even better yet, I messaged the original guy letting him know. It took all of like a day to put the pieces together. PEOPLE there is a thing called research!

I can't with these people but YES if I'm not here for it. I want the whole season now because these people! "TRUE LOVE!" More like TRUE LIES.

Ricky's relationship is all in his head.

Literally.  And....literally.

So Ricky is basically Josh looking for Aika...but even more of the Tits on a Stick version.  He keeps showing off pictures of her to his friends....that doesn't seem pathetic at all.   "She" is going to turn out to be a dude.

Darcy should just put Jesse on one of those buses in NYC where he can jump on and off and see the sites.  Less attitude with all of the information.

Rachel (is that her name?) will soon find out when she leaves the country for the first time, that England has babies too.  Diapers, baby food...the works.

How does Scottie get her hair that blonde?  Clorox?  Her roots are as dark as mine and I can't get my hair above level 6 and that's in balayage form LOL.   And if I know I'm going on TV I'm getting my hair done no?   Is this not the thought of regular people?  I didn't realize how vain I was.

Rachel and Corny must use the same video/phone filter.   They both look thinner and younger and more attractive on their phones.

Why can't Pole just send all that crap Fedex or UPS?   It has to be cheaper than the airline.  That's ridiculous.  Don't they have amazon prime in Brazil?  It must be cheaper to get stuffed animals from china than have Pole bring them over.   And that's the poo emoji Pole.

Darcy, for future reference, that was Shea stadium; home of the New York Mets. I see Darcy has "changed", but Jesse hasn't.  He is still an arse.  I find it interesting that every season we get a participant from Ohio and Kentucky.  Wonder why.

Vidalia Pawn.   That is the most contrived name ever, love it.

What's the real mystery of John?  Is he...

1. A serial killer?

2. Has no legs?

3. Has no penis?

4. Ate the umbilical cord?

I'm not getting good feelings here.

Darcy, you deserve so much better. Stop being so desperate and work on your self esteem. Jesse is a controlling, rude jerk. You deserve better.

Darcey, get out of the codependent dance with Jesse. You will never fix yourself enough to make him happy. He is not worth it.  Sure, point out some of the sights along the route, but you are not a tour guide. Get him a tour bus ticket and he can spend the day exploring. The Chanel bag was a bit of an eyesore.  Dress casually and comfortably, and maybe a bit less makeup. Jesse will continue to rub salt in whatever wound you have.

Rachel, it will be a challenge to travel with a baby. Where is your mom, if she is in the picture? Or a trusted family friend? I probably would. It be bringing my baby along to meet a new guy. He may not be interested until both of you get to know each other a bit. And no series of revolving daddies. And hopefully you are staying in a hotel or decent B&B.

Paul, how much did these stuffed animals and junk unicorn gifts cost? Does Karine plan to sell them?

Nigeria is a long way away from Georgia. There will be culture shock if the boyfriend lives away from say, Lagos.

You aren’t vain, you are normal.

Rachel said her mom was supportive until she learned about Jon(?)'s criminal record and now it sounds like they're not speaking.  I can see why she's bringing the baby if he's paying for daycare.  That seems a bit weird, but I'm hoping that all the fights were back when he was younger and stupid and he's matured and settled down.  But that would never work on this show, so probably not!

That woman (Angela?) will have huge culture shock even if he lives in downtown Lagos!  She'd probably have severe culture shock going to New York.

Shea Stadium was home of the New York Mets, but was torn down several years ago.  

 

/if you are a Ruttels fan, it is Che’ Stadium, named after socialistic revolutionary, Che’ Stadium.

 Rachel said she didn’t tell her father everything about John’s worst crime.  Did they say on the show? did he kill someone in that bar fight?
