He wasn't strong enough to drag his fat self.out of the water..I wouldn't have been able to.do that either but I  wouldn't fake an injury or drowning about it. Be your fat self Rikki!

I like that Big Ang wrapped that ring in an American flag.  She’s in on the joke.  I like that...it’s basically the fourth wall.  Also nice that Michael had a ring of his own ready...although Big Ang looked more ecstatic about the yellow cake from last week.  

I wish I could care about the stripper who was not exercising at the Planet Fitness in Milwaukee.  I tried but her story is so lame.

I've been to.a.strip club twice in my life but my recollection was that the dancer 's routines were rigorous. But why go.the the gym if you're just going to pretend to.pedal

Man, I missed her part.  I got home about an hour into the show and totally missed her.  And by "I missed her" I mean "I was not present for her scenes" and not "I noticed and am sad about the absence of The Stripper and The Muslim on my television screen."

Yellow cake was really happening.  Marriage is just for pretend.

TLC thought it would be a good setting.  Although I go to the gym and often see people chatting, looking at phones, not exercising.  It's annoying when it's busy and machines are full.

In the Live Show, Darcy’s sister talks about getting citated for the fight with her sister. She also says “ya know” a lot. I mean, a lot.

Does anyone know why they put a panel up before the Michael and Angela proposal that said "these scenes may contain sensitive material"? Did I miss something?

Because any scene involving Ang and romance should contain a warning for graphic content.

I think it was actually for Karine learning her fetus is dead inside her but that answer makes me sad.

I don't have kids and have never been through a miscarriage and I'm sure it's horrific, but was Paul's immediate reaction normal? "What caused it, lack of food?"

It almost seemed like he was asking "Is this Karine's fault?"

On a more pleasant note, that 19 year old Mexican girl Fernanda in the previews for 90DF is smoking hot.

I'm wondering why they would choose that ugly location in Riverside Park at 72nd, where there's a giant hideous ramp onto the West Side Highway. How about a few blocks north where there'd still be a nice river view, or somewhere in Central Park, which is much closer to the airport anyway. Parking for filming would be relatively easy at the 79th St. Boat Basin.

You didn’t miss much. Marta just leisurely pedaled on the exercise bike in full Michael Jackson makeup while she complained to her scowling stripper friend from work that she was “fustrated” but that her religious differences with Daya were just “a little problem”

I so badly want to take her out for drinks and dancing. I think she'd be a hilarious gal pal. I hope she finds someone who deserves her, because Ricky ain't it.

Tarik is a piece of shit. I hope Hazel takes him for a ride.

He's not a nice man. He's not a loyal man or a thoughtful man or even a generous one. He's selfish, self-centered and completely self-absorbed. Hazel is not a full human being to him. I think he hoped by dating someone for whom English was a second language he would be able to hide his hostility towards women in general.

Unfortunately for him, that shit shines through loud and clear.

Speaking of hostile, Jon is trouble. He once again proves that he has no concept of consequences. Just like he can't figure out the consequences of getting drunk and getting into fights, he can't seem to comprehend the consequences of inviting a fucking ex-girlfriend to a pre-wedding dinner for his new fiance. The way he snapped at her in the car when she called him on his bullshit was alarming and that shit'll get tired soon.

The only good part of that mind crushing interview was Michele Collins who looked like she was sitting in a doll house,

The chair was for children.  She looked ridiculous.

On her way to the park, Darcey had already worked herself into a self-sabotaging lather of viper venom while simultaneously hoping Jesse would come to rekindle the romance. She stood around the bench in stilettos of vertiginous height, enough luggage for a trip around the world, and dressed like a bride, if weddings were officiated in night clubs.

Don't forget she was pushing up her breasts and posing!

I call bullshit on Darcey being surprised by Jesse breaking up with her. Her outfit was 100% designed to get him to want to bang her one last time before he breaks up with her.

I read it as a normal reaction to receiving devastating news. I don't think he was blaming her or accusing her of something; he was just trying to make sense of things by looking for a rational explanation for something unexpected and seemingly random. I feel bad for them, especially since they have to deal with it while their relationship is in such bad shape. What a terrible, lonely time in their lives.

Tarik and Hazel continue to baffle me. I still have no idea if "marrying a Japanese man" was about a specific man, or just a general idea. And aside from Hazel's "he might be rich" comment, I have no idea what she actually thought of that option. Was it even real? Also, I've never dated a man with kids, but I would consider it a HUGE red flag if he wanted me to meet his child without the knowledge of the child's mother. That seems incredibly disrespectful to his co-parent, not to mention selfish and unfair to his daughter, who is now in the position of lying to her own mother. And if the reason for the subterfuge is because his ex is "crazy" or whatever he called her, I'd probably just nope out of there. I don't need that kind of drama in my life.

I've been waiting all season to see Darcy storm out of that van like a snow beast, but the actual scene was just meh. And he didn't even technically break up with her, so it wouldn't surprise me if they patch things up next week. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

I liked most of the "Live" portion. Michelle is actually quite sharp and witty when she's allowed to be herself, and she asked some questions I've been thinking for a while. However, I could have definitely done without the interrogation of Abby about her sex life with Sean and Chris (shudder), and I can't believe she didn't address the elephant in the room - Ricky is STILL married! He has no right to be proposing to anyone!

I'm so glad this show is almost over. I watched the previews for the next round, starting in a few weeks, and I just can't. Three batches of 90 Day in a row is too much for me. There are just too many terrible things going on right now for me to spend my free time watching dysfunctional idiots make terrible life choices. I might record the new episodes and watch them in a few months, but I'm definitely taking a break when the current round of train wrecks is over.

With this Ricky thing, maybe TLC is trying to do a show that's a combo between 90-Day Fiance and a polygamy show?

Even with the warning that was upsetting.  That doctor or clinician who told her the baby was dead, the exam was over and get off the table was making me want to punch something.  I’m still irritated about it an hour later.

He has terrible bedside manner. I am assuming that his straight forward approach might have been cultural, but jeez, dude. At least give her a few minutes to mourn.

I don’t think he was saying it was Karine’s fault at all. He was looking for answers as most parents do after a miscarriage. They wonder if it was due to diet, stress, too much exercise, etc. It’s normal to wonder why. Most miscarriages happen due to genetic anomalies but because society doesn’t talk about miscarriages like they should, a lot of people don’t realize this.

My heart broke for Karine. Likewise for Paul when he started crying, but couldn’t follow what was happening. Very sad. I read online that TLC had some kind of warning on the screen before the scene, but I missed it. Anyone catch what it said?

And Rachel's face after John started talking about bumping into his ex?  She looked so disappointed that he was telling her something she had been looking forward to confronting him about for 2 weeks. 

 This marriage is destined for success.

He is waiting to make a nice romantic dinner to tell Noxcema that he is already married and then he better run!

And still we have had no duet with the 90 Day Steve and Edie.  Will they sing at their wedding?

Undoubtedly, though, he will first whine to us about how hard it is for him to tell the truth about his marriage.

It makes a change from the nail salon and the omnipresent pedicures.

Even though Ximena claims to have forgiven him, it's not a smart move on Ricky's part to propose to a woman who is mad at you for emotionally cheating on her on a tiny raft in the middle of the sea when you just said you can't swim and she's already asked you to risk "drowning"* to prove your loyalty.

*Drowning for Ricky apparently means waddling through chest deep water.

I was waiting breathlessly for her to go full Patty McCormick in The Bad Seed and push him overboard, then smash his fingers with her shoes. I am disappoint.

 I love Ximena’s snark and her confidence. I would totally watch reality show about her life.

Me too! Especially if it involves fleecing creepy smarmy douchebags, while accumulating nice vacations, cute tops and bathing suits, and nice dinners in fancy restaurants, supplemented by cash gifts "to help out her nephews".

Did anyone see the last ten minutes of the wrap up show (hour 3) where Dean says Tarik is into orgies? And Dean also publicly outs Hazel, the daughter of devout religious parents, as bisexual.  What a jackass.

Dean is an even bigger asshole than his brother. What a colossal douche canoe.

Almost every married couple I know dated for multiple years before their wedding.  I am amazed and horrified at how things speed up in 90 Day Fiance land.  Tarik knows she is the one after a few weeks, and Ricky proposes to Ximena days (hours?) after meeting her...

The Paul and Karine scenes were heartbreaking and slightly confusing.  She was 4-5 weeks pregnant last week, and it felt like 2 days later she was 9 weeks.

I think Rachel is pretty.  I never noticed until tonight how she is negative about everything and has quite the downer personality.   Good luck with that, Jon.
