Sleeping all the time, if not from drugs; thick waist gaining, weeping...Kareens a mommy. Now the question, is Pole the daddy? If he is to dumb to count to nine, his mommy isnt.

 

As someone wise told me once, the first one can come any time, but the subsequent babies all take nine months! :-)

What exactly does Ricky do for a living that he can afford to send two women money?

He's a professional photographer. Who knew it was such a moneymaker?

When they were walking to meet the brother Tarik tried taking her hand to hold it and she pulled it away. What does this guy need in order for him to tell she does not want him touching her?

Hazel's flicker wasn't very discreet.  She needs to watch Melania Trump to see how it should be done.

Ok, I can't be the only one who noticed this....when Karine was in bed with the blue blanket over her face, Paul had what appeared to be a haircut.  The back of his head was shaved.  But when he's marrying Karine at the ceremony, he has his regular scruffy head of hair.  What's going on?!

Yes I totally noticed that..... ...and the shot of him trying to wake her up was the day before the wedding.   My hair grows fast,  but not in less than 24 hours

I totally think Lucy looked like Maggie Simpson in that snow suit.

I thought it was really crass and creepy for Dean, who knows Hazel and Tarik aren't having sex, to say "I hope you're enough woman for him in the bedroom this weekend" or however he put it.  That might be enough to coerce Hazel to immediately do the sex with Tarik, she's terrified that Tarik won't "choose" her to go to America based on what Dean says.

I really thought they would save a seat for his mother's hairbrush at the wedding.

So Ricky flies to Colombia with the intention of asking Melissa to marry him, but then Noxema becomes his love interest and then he needs to "vet" her to make sure she's not just in it for the money? Was Melissa going to get vetted? I didn't hear that mentioned. 

Kinda seems like Ricky is starting to back out. Maybe he wasn't looking for a wife after all. Maybe he really just wanted a sexcation.

Funny, when Jon was proposing and Lucy was fussing,  my husband says I haven't heard an unhappy peep out of that baby until now.   Lol.    Also he never says babies are cute and he said I have to admit that's one cute baby.   He also agreed she looked like Maggie Simpson all splayed out in that snow suit.

Hmmm, that makes me wonder what kind of photography he specializes in...

I like Ximena's outfit choices.   The bright florals lend her a positive, fun vibe, a quality sorely lacking in all other aspects of this show.

She does dress well, but I didn't like her horizontal stripes. But I don't like horizontal stripes on any woman, I don't think they are flattering except on super thin chicks.

Getting back to Angela, my stomach turned at the juxtaposition of the impoverished Nigerian landscape, then cutting to She-Whose-Butt-Must-Be-Wiped dipping her cankles into a sparkling blue pool.

I didn't like this episode very much.

Angela has realized just how desperate Michael is to come to the U.S.A., and it's maddening to watch her exploit this!

Again, she doesn't handle power very well. It goes straight to her fried blonde head.

I could see her being a cashier at KFC, but never a manager. Not with the way she lords things over people. 

Not even an assistant manager.

I do not believe a word of Darcey's account. If your feet are cold on hard wood floors, you put slippers on. You do not, ever, put your feet ON TOP of someone else's shoes to "warm them up" because no one in their right mind would expect that to do anything at all. I also don't believe "I threw it at the floor where you were standing" because that makes no sense either. If you want to throw your shoes at someone in anger, you don't aim at the floor.

 

Darcey's version of events calls for the wise words of Marcia Brady.

I keep comparing Ricky's friends and Michael's friends together. How funny it is they all are thinking their respective friends are bat-sh*t crazy for going through this farce for love or a green card or whatever it is they're hoping to attain. I suspect humiliations galore was not on their radars when they set out on their journey's.

I was watching the first episode and the difference in Michael’s demeanor is startling. When he meets her at the airport he’s happy and relaxed, looking forward to the visit, last nights episode, he’s sweaty, nervous and fearful of angering her and  drawing the attention  of bystanders when she starts yelling and carrying on.

I agree. It’s actually quite sad. He tries to keep the peace with her, but she is always finding something wrong with his actions. I still think Angela was dead wrong for slapping him in the market.

Grangela kept complaining that Michael wasn't trying to teach her anything about his culture.  She didn't hear "Calm down, baby."  "Cover up more up top."  "Don't wear so much makeup."

And is she blind and deaf and can't see how the other women OF HER AGE are behaving?

I find it hard to believe they even have a decent sex life. They can’t agree on anything! I feel like 90% of their sex life involves bickering and the other 10% actual sex.

I envision lots of coitus interruptus accompanied by cries of "This is madness!"

Good point, more and more, Ximena looks like a "distant second" rather than the original "Plan B."

So........Ricky can't even come up with an excuse that makes sense.  Melissa the Producer or Melissa the sexbot.  Ricky, all your excuse tells Ximena is that you were thinking of someone else while doing the deed.  My heart goes out to Melissa the Producer if there is one.

In that short introductory segment where the couple stands together posing with their names, ages and hometowns listed, Angela is wearing a colorful, blue and white Nigerian dress. She looks so much better in that than in her trashy, low cut, tight, double knit, slashed, and ripped t-shirts and leggings.  I know. It's still Angela, but that dress does enhance her appearance. Why does she bitch and moan constantly about the Nigerian clothes, the food, the culture? If and when Michael gets to Georgia and sees Angela's mobile home I think he's in for a big surprise. That's not what he is expecting at all.

Ricky has to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, fools that has appeared on any season of this show. He was madly in love with Melissa but had never met her in the flesh. He arrives in Colombia and she ghosts him after meeting him for dinner the first night. Now he's falling in love with Ximena, his Plan B, who he has already sent $1,500 to before arriving in Colombia and while still professing his undying love for Melissa. Huh? In my opinion, Ximena is prettier and less plastic than Melissa. When Ricky said Ximena had a nose job I thought there sure is a lot of plastic surgery going on with these women and Ricky is funding it. He wants to be in love so badly it doesn't matter who it is or how they are playing him.

By marrying Paul, Karine is entering the House of Doom. Will she ever escape?

I used to think Darcy was being gaslighted by Jesse. Now  I think she is gaslighting him. They're both driving each other crazy. Her poor kids. They don't deserve any of this. Darcy, think about your daughters. It can't be good for them to see you acting like this.

Tarik is being played by Hazel but he's not entirely blameless in this situation. Tarik continues to make bad fashion choices.

Could Rachel's engagement ring be any more fake? Cubic zirconia, moissanite, glass?

Angela, Dean - sorry, but the epitome of the loud, brash Ugly American abroad.  No respect for their surroundings, no cultural sensitivity and no real sense of being a guest in a foreign land.

Angela:  Pipe down.  Pipe down I say and learn a little about Michael's country and culture.  Yes, it is hot isn't it?  Wear respectful and respectable clothing.  Oh, and pipe down.

Dean:  don't raise your voice and sound like you are having an argument or giving holy hell to your brother in public.  Be mindful of your surroundings and respectful of the people around you.  This isn't your kitchen table.  Imagine what those people on the street were thinking when he was going at Tarik (or even the people in the bar the night before).  I would have called the cops because I would have been afraid a physical fight was about to take place.

ETA:  I found this article in just the amount of time it took me to type Smoking in Nigeria into Google.

I did a quick search on Google, and in Nigera, 17% of the men smoke and that number is on the rise. Approximately 1-2% of the women smoke, and that number is on the decline.

As if Angela didn't look out of place enough already, on top of everything else, she had to make her presence felt as a sweaty, glistening, smoke breathing dragon! Forget that she's a blob on two stilts, that personality of hers is just plain rotten. I hated the way that she was treating Michael. She was loud, rank and abusive ~ and she justified her bad behavior. She had more than enough clues that her vulgar, sexual antics were completely out of place in polite conversation there, but she just didn't care. She refused to see reason with him because she felt like she didn't have to. She kept telling him, "Be a man. Be a man." Even though, she knew full well that the moment he asserted himself, she was going to squash him down and make more threats not to bring him to the United States. "I snap. I snap." She didn't just hold the keys to her country over his head. She dangled them right in his face constantly. Totally perfect and self-actualized, she wasn't going to stop smoking or make a single change for anyone or anything. When in Rome, Angela. When in Rome!

Angela reminds me of Nicole who learned nothing about Morocco and slept most of the time she was there... no doubt dreaming of opportunities to kiss Azan's shoulder.

Dean was absolutely chomping at the bit, wasn't he? Yes, Hazel is using Tarik. Now because you opened this can of worms, your dumb brother is going to give her another $80 so she can go back to her "ex" boyfriend's place and enjoy some really good sex before she has to go to the States and marry your brother.

She doesn't want to answer questions about her love life on television because it's all shady A.F., but Dean, if you're going to get mad at anybody, get mad at Tarik. He's the one bringing this woman home to his autistic daughter. He's the one choosing a stepmother with his dick.

Dean looked like he was going to explode! Anger problem, much?

I really think this marriage will happen because each one has something that the other wants very, very much. There's nothing that pugnacious Dean can do to break up this unholy alliance so he might as well make the best of a bad situation and get to know Hazel. Be her friend. There's nothing to be gained by acting like an a$$hole.

Ricky is the biggest cad and his story keeps changing. He tried to make the viewers believe he just started talking to noxema but instead he has been sending her money long enough to believe she may have had plastic surgery (that she is 100% healed from) with it? This makes me wonder how many women he was actually talking to and sending money to in total. Hedging his bets. If #2 didn't work out he would have kept going down the list. 

Pole probably made a practical choice with his suit and got the Teflon coated one. That thing looked spill and rain proof, maybe had built in mosquito repellant too. Even watching that wedding made me depressed. Karine looked like she was about to walk the green mile with her mother as a witness. The entire room looked like they were lined up to witness an execution. This makes 2 episodes with her poor mother either crying or barely holding it together. How could even a ticket to America be worth that?

When I heard this, I went numb at the stupidity. You're on TV. If she doesn't see the show, someone she knows will see it, and tell her the truth. Shoot, someone will make it their life's mission to find out how to contact her and tell her about Melissa. What an idiot.

Abusive textbook bullshit,

I thought the same thing when she told him, "You make me behave this way." Isn't that what abusers say to their victims? I got really turned off by that. I'm sure Michael could find some nice woman here in the US who would be interested in his culture, not be 'loud and wrong' as we say, and have an interest in helping a brother become a business man.

Jesse sucks...Ricky sucks...is there anyone not horrible this season?!

Ximena?  I like her so far.  She was quick to respond to Ricky’s interrogation, and had enough dignity to be offended, without coming across as shady like Witch Hazel.  

Personally, I’m offended for Ximena when Ricky Dicky insinuated she didn’t have money and needed his.  Did she say she was broke and attempting  to harvest the American dollar, or is that how Ricky Dicky heard it since he was already in that mindset and sending money to Melissa?  What makes him think she didn’t have the money for the surgery if she had insurance, or that she’s poor just because she lives in a small town? Bless her heart if she had a deviated septum.  If you’re so worried about where the money is going, don’t give it away jackass.

Did anyone see the part when Darcey and Jesse looked like they were going to laugh? I think Jesse was throwing his luggage out the front door and Darcey was sitting at the table.

Then Jesse explaining how if he hadn't dodged the shoe, he wouldn't be sitting there to do the interview, my god. I really wish the cameras were there to catch that on film.
