"90-Day Fiancee," Train Wreck Gets Renewed

The 90 Day Fiancee franchise shows, ALL OF THEM, have been renewed by TLC. That includes 90 Day Fiance, and their spin-offs 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, 90 Day FiancĂ©: Before the 90 Days and 90 Day FiancĂ©: What Now?.

These shows are a train wreck you can't help but watch sometimes. In most cases we watch Americans date someone they met online, from another country, then bring them to the U.S. via the 90-day fiancee visa and get married at the end of that time period.

In too many cases, you find yourself asking yourself how this loser has woo'd someone from another country. In many cases, it's the big American dream that nets them their new significant other from foreign lands.

In almost all the cases, family is suspicious of the visitor just wanting a green card, while on a rare occasion, there are good or cute matches.

But most of the time you're smacking your head, as you watch guys liquidate their retirement savings to date a girl, or ignore that their girlfriend seems to have a creepy old, American boyfriend on the side and refuses to not be his "friend," or watch a confounding guy constantly borrow money from their enabling friends to pay his new girlfriend's dowry to her parents.

You watch the conflict and confusion as out-of-state visitors find themselves thrust into the sheer boredom of places like New Hampshire, Kansas or what not, while others, like one woman from Russia, was lied to by her American man, then wanted out, all the while, the guy shrugs his shoulders and asks what's wrong? (Idiot, you... that's what's wrong!) Then again, Jorge just got busted for transporting and intent to sell 300 pounds of weed, so you be the judge! Popular theory is that he was in the 'keep my wife in my bed' method since she was incredibly up front and demanding about the lifestyle she was promised when she came to America. And to be honest, I'm not sure she'll be for want wants she walks from this idiot.


So yea, it's a bit of a train wreck as you sit, bewildered, why after looking at all these people's flaws, the Visa holder still marries them! In almost all cases.

Anyway, TLC knows what they have and they've renewed the entire suite of 90 Day Fiancee shows.
