Below is what happened on Episode 15 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?'s eighth season.


Jasmine and Gino were shown traveling to Florida for the "Miss International World" beauty pageant. Jasmine said she needed to do this to prove she's capable of competing in a pageant no matter her age. She was feeling so excited.

Gino worried about Jasmine going up against professionals and if she was going to be good enough, but Jasmine asked him not to speak like that. "Miss Panama" was already nervous, and so Gino assured her that she looked fantastic and was going to do a great job.

When the women practiced their first walk through, Gino filmed the whole thing. The pageant coordinator also had quite a bit of criticism for Jasmine in particular.

Jasmine was instructed to smile softer, interact with the audience more, and walk more gracefully overall. The feedback made Jasmine stress a little bit, but she was still feeling confident in herself.

After the rehearsal, Gino told Jasmine that she had done a great job but she needed to fix her posture and make a few corrections. Gino showed Jasmine the video he had taken, trying to give her some advice, but she wondered if he was going to use this footage later to masturbate.

Jasmine thought Gino's actions were inappropriate, and she didn't like feeling so insecure.

Jasmine believed that Gino thought all of the other women were better and more fit for the crown, but Gino promised that he was just trying to help her and improve her stage performance.

Jasmine, suddenly feeling overwhelmed and sad, figured that Gino was going to make her lose the pageant.


Angela was shown trying to rip Michael's phone out of his hands. Michael insisted the phone belonged to him, but Angela disagreed. Angela was yelling and screaming, and Angela called it "a break."

Angela said she had never seen Michael act that way and it was embarrassing trying to trust Michael over and over again when he allegedly told her lies all the time.


Michael vented about how "enough was enough" and he was really angry. Michael said Angela always acted like he was "shady" or doing something wrong but he wasn't. He then told the cameras that he was "done" filming.

Angela claimed to have seen evidence that Michael had been scamming her the whole time, but she was praying that she was wrong. Angela had never seen Michael so upset before, and so she wasn't sure what to think or believe.

After Angela had some time to cool down, she allowed Michael to explain himself. Michael assured his wife that he was not scamming her and that he was only on a social-media page about African men moving to America so that he could learn tips and receive advice for his interview.

Michael claimed he needed Angela's personal financial information to use her Wifi when traveling, and he also insisted that a comment on his Facebook group about finding an older American woman a Nigerian husband was just a harmless joke.

Michael acknowledged it wasn't a funny joke and he would've deleted it had he seen it.

However, when asked why he had Googled information about life insurance, Michael alleged that he never did that and had no idea why that search was on his phone.

Michael told Angela that he was completely committed to their marriage and he never went out with friends. Michael admitted that he felt lonely in Nigeria without her and therefore entered group chats, but Angela still wasn't okay with that behavior.

Angela just wanted Michael to be more forthcoming with her, which she claimed would prevent her from being so distrustful and acting out with skepticism and rage.

Angela desperately wanted to believe Michael because she loved him. Her heart was telling her to stay and give Michael another chance, but her mind was apparently telling her to go.

"I've waited this long, let's see what happens," Angela concluded, before telling Michael that it was his own fault that she didn't believe him at times.


Kobe and his elders had approved of Emily's bride price, and so Emily was shown getting ready for her traditional wedding in Cameroon. Emily was looking forward to seeing her husband in a traditional outfit, and she called him "hot."

Emily was still upset about how Kobe wasn't going to break up with his ex-girlfriend until
Emily was pregnant, but she decided to leave the past in the past. Emily loved Kobe, and so she opted to focus on the positive and how well her husband treated her in that stage of their lives.

Kobe's friends, however, didn't think that Emily respected him, and so he had asked them not to attend the wedding. Kobe was feeling upset and disappointed, and his friends' lack of support in his marriage left him choosing between his friends and his wife.

"I never thought I was going to be put in this position," Kobe lamented to the cameras.

Emily and Kobe essentially renewed their vows that night in a big African wedding that was filled with cheering, dancing, loud music and a big crowd of people. When Kobe saw Emily all dressed up, he thought she looked like "the most beautiful woman." Emily also gushed about how her husband looked sexy.


Emily's father said a prayer during the ceremony, and her mother Lisa was so proud of everyone for throwing a wedding together in just two short weeks. Emily's parents thought the wedding was "great" and "so cool." It was truly a new cultural experience for them both.

Kobe's friends eventually showed up to the reception, and Emily hoped they weren't there to spoil or ruin her wedding night.

Luckily, Kobe's friends ended up being kind and supportive. Kobe's friend Valery announced how he had faith Emily was going to make Kobe happy.


Ashley was saging her house because she said she and Manuel had opposing vibes. Manuel also wanted to send $300 home to his family without any explanation.

Ashley wanted to understand where the money was going, but Manuel told the cameras that he was always going to help his family when they needed it -- no questions asked. Manuel said his family would always remain his priority, and so he was frustrated that Ashley had a problem with it.

Ashley mentioned how Manuel had changed the password to his bank account, saying an action like that made her feel worried and insecure. She asked Manuel if he wanted a separation, but he assured her that wasn't the case.

Manuel explained how Ashley spent too much money and dipped into his account when she was running low, but Ashley argued that she worked hard for her money and Manuel was coming off "ungrateful."

Ashley told the cameras, "It is 100 percent not fair to me that I am not told what is happening with money that I am providing."

Ashley told Manuel that she was fine with sending his family money in Ecuador but she wanted to know why and what it was being used for.

Suddenly, Manuel said if Ashley wasn't going to give him the money he needed, he'd find it elsewhere.

"If you're not going to help me, I have no choice but to go back," Manuel told his wife.

Ashley appeared totally shocked and decided to take a walk. Ashley couldn't believe that he was threatening to leave her, and so she stormed out of the house. Manuel called her "a motherf-ck-r" behind her back and complained about how he couldn't stand "this woman."

Ashley was in disbelief that Manuel had put an ultimatum on the table. She felt like Manuel was going to abandon her, and so she vented about how Manuel just needed to go home if he really wanted to leave.

Manuel's birthday was the next day, but Ashley wasn't sure if it was going to be a celebration. Ashley told her sister Sienna that Manuel was trying to collect $1,300 from her without details, and, after hearing Manuel had threatened to leave her, Sienna said maybe it was time to let him return home.

"Manuel is using you. He has a secret agenda and you're being blind about the whole thing," Sienna told her sister.

"I think he loves you but he also has a secret agenda... Things don't add up, and I think you should be aware of that... You should be allowed to know where your money is going."

Sienna hurt Ashley's feelings, but Sienna insisted that she was just being honest and Ashley needed to be truthful with herself.

Ashley decided to call Manuel's friend Jonathan in search of some answers. Ashley explained via FaceTime how Manuel was being secretive, and Sienna asked Jonathan where all the money was going. Jonathan said Manuel was just helping his family and his ex-girlfriend.

Ashley was shocked to find out that Manuel was even in contact with his ex-girlfriend, and Jonathan explained how it was probably for their kids. Jonathan also recalled how Manuel had sent this woman money when they were in New York together.

Ashley said Manuel had presented things to her like he never even spoke to his ex-girlfriend. Ashley said she was "done" with Manuel doing things behind her back and he was going to have to deal with the consequences.

"I am sick of him making me look like a fool," Ashley lamented to the cameras.

Ashley was furious because Manuel hadn't been totally honest with her, and so she intended to confront him.

Ashley confronted Manuel about talking to his ex-girlfriend, and Manuel just laughed in her face and asked her to calm down. Manuel said Jonathan's claim about him sending money to his ex-girlfriend wasn't true, and then he phoned Jonathan to make the problem an open conversation.

Jonathan told Manuel to tell Ashley the truth, and then Manuel hung up on Jonathan and insisted to Ashley that he was telling her the truth.

"I can just tell he's lying," Ashley said.

Manuel laughed and called Ashley "crazy," and then Ashley noted how Manuel had made her that way.


John had just gotten into an argument with Thais' friends and called one of them "a sl-t." Thais said John deserved to have a drink thrown in his face and their night out was supposed to be a good time.

Thais was upset with John, but Patrick defended John because Natalia had been calling John a bad person for no reason. Thais thought her friend was just being protective, and she acknowledge how John could, in fact, be a bad influence.

Thais and Patrick therefore simply weren't seeing eye to eye, and Thais asked to go home.

"You don't know how to behave in places," Thais told John.

"Don't cry me a river when they start trouble and the big, bad wolf blows their house down," John responded, before letting out a burp that "hurt."


Sophie's mother advised Rob to let Sophie reflect and heal for a few days, but Rob vented about how they were repeating the same situation over and over again.

Rob was tired of his wife walking out the door, and he didn't have faith that Sophie was going to soul search and weigh the pros and cons of staying together or leaving. Rob didn't think this behavior was fair to him, and he insisted that Sophie was always taken care of.

Claire argued, however, that Sophie once asked her to send food because she was starving. The conversation sparked an argument between Rob and Sophie about granola bars and how Sophie had eaten his favorite, routine breakfast snack.

Sophie told Rob that he kept making her cry, and so Rob asked Sophie to figure out if she could be with him, without getting "pissed off all the time." Rob wanted Sophie to make sure that he's the man whom she really wanted, because he didn't think he could change.

"This is an emotional roller coaster," Rob complained. "She's got me on a whirlwind of emotions."

Sophie just wanted Rob to change and take accountability so that she could be happy. Rob understood and said, "I love you," but Sophie still planned to spend time away from him.

Rob was extremely mad because he had committed to Sophie and thought he had given her everything. He said if Sophie wanted to leave, he was going to start fresh and learn how to be without her. Rob essentially wasn't going to wait around for someone to want to be with him and stand by him during challenging times.


Alexei's father had stayed with him in the U.S. for about a month, and it was time for him to return to Israel. Alexei hoped his father was going to be safe in his home country amid conflict and war, and Loren could tell this was an emotional time for her husband.

"They are all in danger, and he's here. My heart hurts for him," Loren explained of her husband. "It's like the wind has been taken out of him, and I can see that in him."

Alexei said goodbye to his father at the airport, and he felt guilty about living such a safe, happy and blessed life. He looked forward to reuniting with his dad once again after the war.
