Recap: TLC's "90 Day Fiancé" - Season 6 Episodes 5 & 6

Is it possible for an episode to be both late and early? Well, yes! Last week we took some time off to be lazy and enjoy the holiday and didn't record (or watch) 90 Day Fiancé ... then did a marathon last night watching 2 episodes back-to-back!

We also used all of our learnings from our recap of episode 4 (#NeverForget) and cranked out a recap that was much shorter, higher energy, minimal tangents... just an all-around improvement.

Mike has preferred to keep some mystery around whether the couples are together or not in real life, but my twitter fingers have been busy (well, mainly on IG) and I know the tea on a few rumors:

1) Larissa has 3 kids back in Brazil
2) Leida and Eric were already married (in Indonesia) prior to filming
3) Larissa and Colt were the only couple that didn't film the reunion tell-all

So, what did you think of last night's episode? Who do you love? Who are you over?

We forgot to include our favs this week - but I'm rooting for Larissa to get a "biggie" car that has air conditioning and hoping Asuelu gets airfare $ to pack up his shit and go back to Samoa because Kalani is miserable and annoying af.

"Revive or Archive" now on PeopleTV!!!



I'm a little late announcing it here on my blog, but the web series I host for Allrecipes (Revive or Archive) launched on People.com's PeopleTV App and Website last month! For the month of October it was the 14th most searched show, and even came in 8th place on weekends.

The series page isn't live yet on the site or app, but you can find episodes under the "People TV Specials" and by searching "Revive or Archive" within the app.

Recap: TLC's "90 Day Fiance" - Season 6 Episode 4

This episode of the podcast is called "Do better next time..."

Everyone says when you start podcasting there is no way around some of the tough lessons you'll have to learn. There's no way around having some of your first episodes low-key sucking or being high-key trash. Well, it finally happened to us. Our low energy +  talking too slow... and too long... made for a not so great episode. Ugh. It's so annoying. I could barely listen to the full episode, but Mike made me. After both of saying "yikes" and cringing lol, considering it a lesson learned! If you can make it through the episode, bless your heart. Start at the 6:10 mark.

Major takeaways:
1) Keep the episodes a LOT shorter. We'll only spend 2 mins TOPS on each couple
2) Only record if we have high energy. Nobody wants to hear us sound like we're running underwater.
3) Don't get lost down a tangent. Make sure there's a point to whatever we're saying because those long ass stories that lead nowhere and add nothing are for the birds.

Recap: TLC's "90 Day Fiance" - Season 6 Episode 2

This week's episode recap is super late, but finally LIVE! For anyone else who watches the show OnDemand or Live, HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR SANITY WITH ALL OF THE COMMERCIALS?!?!?! No, seriously. This is a real question. The constant commercial breaks are killing me slowly. Mike and I have decided to either pirate episodes (Sorry TLC) OR turn the commercial breaks into a game where we do squats, planks, crunches, etc... anything to make it more productive and bearable.

Recap: TLC's "90 Day Fiance" - Season 6 Episode 1 (Part 2)

Mike and I finished watching part 2 of Episode 1 and are blessing the internet with our thoughts! We received some great feedback from my bae and work wife (Hey Shavonne!) saying that we needed to "stop referencing our notes and just say the thing" lol... so we're doing that. Take a listen and let me know what you thought about the episode.

Random, but why in the world is TLC making everyone die a slow death with ALL of the commercials?!?! I mean, damn. Maybe I've been spoiled by paying for ad-free experiences on Hulu and Spotify, but being forced to stream episodes on the TLC app (which are damn near 1/3 commercials) has been taxing. Also... I understand that I'm streaming episodes using someone else's login, so the fact I'm complaining about anything is already a joke. Still, I hate all of the commercials.

Recap: TLC's "90 Day Fiance" - Season 6 Episode 1 (Part 1)

I somehow convinced my fiancé Mike to not only watch the new season of TLC's #90DayFiance with me... but also podcast about the show each week! This is a big deal for 2 reasons: 1) I absolutely LOVE reality TV and became obsessed with Season 5 of #90DayFiance after a girlfriend (Hey Brit!) put me on... and 2) Mike absolutely HATES reality TV and most things about pop culture... but he loves me, so we're watching and dishing on each episode.

This is a guilty pleasure for many people, so please listen to our recap of Season 6 Episode 1 (Part 1) and let me know which couples you love, loathe and who you think is about to get scammed Joanne style!

Disclaimer:  I don't know what this will turn into, but am happy to be creating something with my favorite person. We're keeping things easy and fun, so please forgive any inklings that scream out "low budget" lol... our little podcast is a work in progress, so leave any feedback because things will only get better!
