S02.E08: Expecting the Unexpected

No it was on last night's episode; she just casually informed Tarik that her sister wants her to marry a Japanese man who may be rich. And I cannot figure out if she meant a specific man her sister knows or if it was just a general preference on her sister's part. IDK, do Japanese men fetishize catatonic looking Filipino women who sell themselves into marriage? 

But Rachel is thick around the waist. It will be a little harder than that ^^^ to find a flattering dress for her.

Ok, thanks. I've spent a lot of time in Southeast Asia and have dated younger, impoverished Asian women.

"My family wants to me to marry this other guy" is not an uncommon thing for them to say. Sometimes it's true, there may be another suitor in the picture that the parents prefer (maybe he's richer, he's whiter, etc.)  The woman who uses this line might just honestly be telling her beau that there is a potential snag in the relationship they may need to overcome - parental or family reservations.

 

But sometimes, I think these women say "My family wants me to marry X" as a ploy. Mr. X may not exist at all.

The impoverished Southeast Asian woman with no real leverage just wants the American guy to think she has options and that he has competition.

She knows he's going back to the USA soon. She wants a commitment, a proposal, now. 

And what better way is there to get a schmuck like Tarik to commit to immediately buying your 2003 Ford Escort than by telling him "Make up your mind, I've got another guy coming to look at the car in an hour and he's REALLY interested."

I finally figured out why I can't with Rachel:  She's such a Debbie Downer "me me me" type.  She has a not terrible life with 2 healthy kids and a roof over her head, and she's so Eeyore about everything.  "I love that my kids are here together...but...**whomp whomp** I wish I was in the UK with Punchy McPuncherson."  Her self esteem issues are understandable, but, damn, she isn't "crane lift out of house" big....she can change her diet and workout a bit, and be fine.  If John wanted a blonde, blue eye Gisele looking chick and she has concerns about that, they should have discussed THAT in the UK.   Also, I feel like the US government is gonna frown upon 60 convictions for fighting including 1 that includes hurting someone permanently.  BUT.  I still think crawling Lucy is the sweetest thing ever!

Exactly this!

Anyone else notice that Rachel said she was "home for a few months" but baby Lucy only appeared maybe a month older?

Yes.

 

I miss the old seasons of this show when there were couples who actually had met and knew each other. These are now all just a bunch of scammers looking for a green card and a sucker with money.

Anyone notice that when Darcy was seated on the train, they showed a full body shot and she was wearing comfy black bedazzled open toed slides? Why didn't she wear those to lug all that shit up the stairs? TV drama I suppose! 

The train ride from Middletown, CT to Grand Central Station takes about 90 minutes.  I think she just wanted to be comfortable.  I am willing to wager the moment that train pulled into Grand Central, she changed back into high heels.

So I can't stop wondering about Rachel's friend's eye makeup. Do they sell jet black eye shadow or did she spend the time to draw eyeliner on line by line until it covered the entire eyelid? Or did she use permanent marker? I mean what the hell was that? It wasn't even a goth look. She could have done the whole face goth style and it still would have looked better and more normal. 

Add in the angry looking dress attendant and I swear they are messing with us with joke extras on this show. 

That whole scene was surreal. I thought I'd wandered in to a Fellini movie.

A lot of retailers are now selling simple, elegant wedding dresses online.  There are really nice lace ones from Kiyonna, in plus sizes, for under $300!  It kills me when the 90 Day Fiancees insist on big weddings with all the trimmings when they can't afford it and, in Rachel's case, none of her guests can be there anyway!  You can renew your vows in 5 years with a bigger wedding, if you last that long.  

I got my wedding dress for $60 off Amazon, I loved it!!  Very simple, perfect for a quick civil ceremony (which is what they will have, right?)  When she Rachel/Debbie Downer came out adn thn announced she can't afford a $750 dress, I yelled "THEN WHY ARE YOU TRYING IT ON??"  Rachel - just stop it.  Stop with the fairytales.

Hazel - dead eyes, dead soul.  When she and Tarik were on the beach and she finally mustered "I love you," my hubby looked at me and said:  Geez if you were that lackluster I would wonder if you even liked me, let alone loved me!"

Seeing the Coming Up Next Week segments spoils it for me.

I don't even watch move previews or TV commercials for upcoming movies I may want to see. I just close my eyes and say "nananananana" for thirty seconds.

I would respond to this in the histrionic way that [someone] responded to [something] in the Next Week segment, but that would just be mean.  Instead I will shrug and move on to the next person who accepted my "heyy" on Columbian Cupid.

I know, right? She should make the best of it. Have her charcoal-lidded friend take a cute photo of her in the dress, deck it out really pretty (with filters or whatever), and just frame it as a memento of wedding preparations. I'm sure that Jon would love to have it! Meanwhile assemble a lovely garden outfit for the actual nuptials.

Corney was another Eeyore! She had time to herself in Spain to go to museums or window shopping at boutiques or sampling the local iced lattes or whatever, and instead she sat alone inside a hot apartment getting drunk. Oh, Corney, he must have been overjoyed to find you!

Yeah but she may have been on her period! Lol

 Has Tarik even thought for one minute that he should have a serious talk with Hazel about his handicapped daughter and whether she is accepting of the fact that she will be living with and involved in the every day life of the daughter? Oh, never mind, he's too busy trying to steal unenthusiastic dead lipped kisses from Hazel to care about anything else. These people that are "parents" blow my mind.

Tarik has this constantly befuddled look; I expect to hear *derp!* whenever he reacts to something.  "She won't have sex with me!" (bugging eyes). "She kissed me! I wasn't expecting that!" (head tilt, confused expression). 

Ricky is gross. He's the classic guy who has convinced himself he is moral and proper in all he does.  Except he leaves part of it out. "It's important that I be honest [because I know she'll find out about the real reason I'm here at some point anyway.]"  or, "no more lies [except the part about my two children and my estranged wife.]"  And I'm just so over the "I love you; we can build a future; you are everything I want in a woman" dreck after a week.  

Stripper Girl must not have checked a mirror before her packing scene in the yellow dress.  She seems to be wearing a bra that is too large, very lacy (hence lumpy)- and that "dress" she was showing off to her daughter looked like a 1950's dressing gown.

Angie has a serious case of no filter. Does anyone on this planet want to hear about her frosting plans?  ANYONE??!

Darcy looked hideous on the train. Overdressed, way too exposed. staggering around on her stilettos with enough luggage to ride a steamship across the Atlantic for a month. This cannot be real. And he wants to meet in a park- how romantic? And she plans to heft all of her faux-designer luggage with her?

TLC tweeted that Paul’s mom actually  called while they were waiting for the test results and she told him that even he is too broke to be a dad right now. He’s still far better off than Karine financially though.

The summation of this episode is: a bunch of lying liars promise to never lie again, and their marks future fiances believe them.

I agree with everyone who said Angela's appearance gets more egregious with each episode. And the mental picture of what she plans to do with some of the frosting from the cake has me traumatized. Ewwww!

Darcey wins the award for Most Desperate Person Ever.

Has Rachel been taking sad sack lessons from David Poor??

Marta.....good Lord. They need to start teaching Common Sense and How To Spot Red Flags in schools.

Hazel and Tarik , poor Hazel is trying hard to not vomit any time Tarik touches her,

Ricky is disgusting. All these jerks promising they will never lie again make me twitch.

Editing to add Pole and Karine! I could kind of see his side in terms of feeling used (what did he expect?), but it's obvious that he's been more than a little grumpy. Karine and her mom are unwilling to endure any more of it. Must be really bad. 

I just can't muster up any sympathy for Hazel.  I think she's playing Tarik.  I feel like, he, at least, was upfront about his expectations (I'll marry you and take you away from all this, you'll sleep with me); he even tries to throw some romance in there to set the mood.  She, on the other hand,  is playing games with him.  If she can't go through with it, she should just leave, and let him find some other more willing woman.

I did receive the results of my blood test for pregnancy over the phone. I had to call them (after an hour, I think-29 years ago)

Did I miss something or why didnt they just do an U/S ? Usually when you go for the first appointment you do the urine test and all that but they also do an US where you can see the little jellybea  inside. But it's usually at least 6-7 weeks in. Why did she go so early to the dr and so sadly when she was plotting to get herself pregnant all along ?

You know that feeling when you're in a room that smells bad and you are counting the seconds until you are out and away from it? That's how Hazel always looks when she is around Tariq.  

Could someone please give Rachel a box of tissues? That constant dabbing her tears with her fingers is so annoying. Or maybe its her constant crying. 

 

That "I love you" was the most dispassionate, unconvincing I love you I've ever heard.

The Karine pregnancy speculation makes me think of the Mormon, Hilary Swank look-a-like who brought back the girl from Russia. Old girl couldn’t even pretend that baby belonged to Hilary Swank.

BYE lmao. Josh doesn't deserve this slander! He was so sweet with that baby though it obviously wasn't his. I still have a massive crush on him Hilary Swank parallels aside LOL

I think standard of care is different everywhere.  My doctor doesn't send patients for the first ultrasound until week 12/13, unless there is a known reason to do it sooner (e.g. high-risk pregnancy).

She (Karine) already complains about doing any housework, wait until she has to take care of a crying baby and has no time for herself.

And, does she realize in the U.S.A. "land of milk & honey" most middle-class women work part- or full-time AND manage the majority of child-rearing and household chores (unless they have a good husband, and Paul ain't it)? Very little laying around in bed for hours playing on your phone -- your ass is WORKING at one thing or another about 18 hrs / day.

Yes, they sell black eyeliner...I've seen it in multi-color palettes. I would think it's mostly used for theatrical purposes or as eyeliner.

LOL! I assume that while Pole was not consulting his translator app, someone asked the doctor's office to fudge the results. Actually I'm rather doubtful that they did a quantitative analysis, which estimates length of pregnancy by hcg levels, rather than just a qualitative analysis, which just gives a pregnant or non-pregnant result.

It’s not that difficult to prove if in fact she was lying about her pregnancy timeline. When did Paul get to Brazil?  Didn’t filming begin right around the holidays?  The baby should be here shortly if it is Paul’s. Baby should have already been born if it is not his.

We all know the reason that Jesse has chosen to meet in a park.  A break-up in a public place is done to minimize the waterworks and the dramatics. (speaking from experience).  Jesse knows his Alexis Carrington troll doll will just quietly accept the break-up and teeter off in her stilettos,

I hope she has to walk across grass.

And why go to a restaurant and order a meal that no one will eat? 

But if Jesse thinks Darcey will slink off quietly, trailing her 800 pounds of fake Louis Vuitton luggage, he does not know his woman.

YOU'VE BEEN LIKE A MOTHER TO ME.  My God, the show is just the gift that keeps on giving. I have no idea what Angela was wearing on their restaurant date, but I love it.  Whenever she wears her Dog the Bounty Hunter hair, an angel gets its wings. He bought her a cake. I’m cackling here.

Tariq and old dead eyes make me sad. 

Jesse is weird looking. I wonder what awful incident he’s referring to.  I hope Darcy kept the receipt on those veneers. They are still too big for her mouth.  I feel kind of terrible for her, thinking that she was going to get a proposal and this guy is here, flying 6000 miles across the world to dump her.  She really hasn’t gotten the hint from him that less is more as far as make up is concerned. She’s really spackling it on. 

Pole, when you have sex with a human woman in real life, and you don’t use one of your fish dick condoms, the woman can get pregnant. But really, this is a conversation for you to have with the bag of your mother’s hair.  Poor Gracilene. Was Pole even in Brazil when she got pregnant?

The train ride from Middletown, CT to Grand Central Station takes about 90 minutes.  I think she just wanted to be comfortable.  I am willing to wager the moment that train pulled into Grand Central, she changed back into high heels.

Didn't she do that on her original episode flying out to meet Jessie...wear comfy shoes on the plane then change to stilettos that immediately had the heel snap off when she ran to greet him.

For some reason, I wasn't able to quote the post regarding Rachel's possible job & someone mentioned doggy poopy picker upper...that's a big thing around here! 

Did anyone else catch that after Karina called the Dr (can a blood test tell how many 'weeks' pregnant you are?) & Pole said via translator app that he wants to be involved in the baby's life, Mother Katrina, via translator app said:

'A son needs to be surrounded by love'

But the caption below said:

'A child needs to be surrounded by love'

I wonder if any authorities watch this footage when approving the visa. 'My-Kell' and Hazel have no business being approved. Hazel had no interest what so ever in whatever his name is. Is she even aware of the fact that he has a special needs child she is going to have to raise?
