According to TLC, Season 6 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days will follow long-distance relationships and document how each couple found each other as well as their first in-person meeting in a foreign country "and the unexpected surprises, cultural clashes and dramatic twists" along the way.

"This season serves up an explosion of emotion with all the highs and lows of dating across the globe, as marriage proposals dangle in the distance," the network teased.

In most 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days cases, a pair of lovebirds are hoping to get engaged and begin the K-1 Visa process.

After traveling across the world, the couples will determine if love can conquer all as they experience challenges such as language barriers, interfering families, cultural differences, age gaps, ex partners, and baggage from the past.

Below is what happened on Episode 8 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days' sixth season.


Statler was shown calling Dempsey "beautiful, gorgeous and attractive" on their drive to Statler's hotel in Manchester, England. Statler said that after spending a few moments with Dempsey, with whom she had been communicating for seven months long-distance, all of her fears and anxiety just drifted away.

Once the pair got inside Statler's hotel room, they exchanged sweet gifts. Dempsey gifted Statler dead bugs from Thailand that had been framed, and Dempsey absolutely loved them and gushed about the insects still smelled bad.

Statler, in turn, gave Dempsey a bendable metal insect, which made Dempsey laugh.

Dempsey said she wanted to take a shower, but Statler was disappointed to learn that her love wanted to bathe alone. Dempsey couldn't help but stare at Dempsey's butt and gush about how it looked like a perfect Georgia peach.

Statler was hoping to have sex that night since there had been so much build up for their relationship, but Dempsey didn't want to. Dempsey explained to the cameras how they hadn't even kissed yet and she wanted to take things slow and get to know each other better.

The next morning, Statler revealed she and Dempsey had their first kiss but it was very awkward. Statler said they got better at kissing, and then Dempsey told the cameras the kissing eventually led into having sex.

"I could feel the connection between us... so I just thought, 'Why not?'" Dempsey confirmed.


Statler said Dempsey's vegan diet must've had something to do with their great sex, but Dempsey could tell that Statler was more experienced in the bedroom. Statler was into sex parties, whipping and chains, which were things Dempsey had never tried before.

"I'm afraid she won't want to be with me if her needs are not being met," Dempsey noted in a confessional, adding how she was also worried Statler wouldn't be able to adjust to her lifestyle.

Dempsey lived on a farm "out in the middle of nowhere," according to Statler, who felt "unexcited" about dealing with those circumstances.

Statler, a self-declared city girl, wasn't used to a rural way of life, and she was concerned about sanitation, space and more.

Statler was ultimately impressed by Dempsey's cute caravan and living situation, but she didn't think she could live there long-term considering there wasn't a lot of space. Dempsey also wasn't aware that Statler was ready to move to England if their trip went well.

"Dempsey could be the love of my life. I know it's really fast... but it feels right. I'm ready to start the rest of my life with Dempsey. I just hope she's as into me as I am into her," Dempsey told the cameras.


Gino and Jasmine only had one week left together, and Jasmine acknowledged it was a very tight timeline to fix their problems, which included a lack of sex and a betrayal in trust. Gino had just learned that Dane was Jasmine's ex-boyfriend and that they lived in the same apartment building.

"We haven't been able to [solve our issues]. It's making me feel miserable, desperate, sad, [and] concerned. So we need to see a therapist; it's a must," Jasmine shared in a confessional.

Jasmine and Gino therefore attended a couple's counseling session in Panama. Gino admitted things had been "rough" with Jasmine and he thought things were going to go better for them.

Jasmine told the therapist how waiting for her K-1 visa to be approved was putting a lot of pressure and stress on their relationship.

"Jasmine, she makes bad comments all the time. She'll say very hurtful words to me, and also, I recently found out that Jasmine was seeing her ex-boyfriend -- calling him... and they live in the same building. And they've seen each other recently," Gino vented to the therapist.

But Jasmine insisted she just had a "friendly meeting" with her ex-boyfriend because they had "amazing communication skills" with each other. Jasmine claimed that she viewed Dane as a friend and they met to talk ABOUT Gino.

Jasmine went on to share how she wasn't satisfied sexually in her relationship with Gino, who allegedly pushed her away every time she initiated intimacy. Jasmine also said Gino had made comments about her private parts.

"I wanted to be sexy [in the shower], and I was showing him my body. And he was gagging," Jasmine claimed.

Gino insisted that he was not gagging but came across annoyed because he was trying to have a conversation with her at the time.

Regardless, Jasmine said that she felt ugly, insecure, and like she wasn't enough. Jasmine already had abandonment issues because her father had left her when she was three-years-old.

"You make me feel ugly, and all I want is love," Jasmine cried, begging for Gino's love and affection.


Jasmine cried to the cameras about how she'd do anything to feel worthy and loved by Gino and he was hurting her terribly.

Jasmine also told the therapist that she and Gino only had sex seven times during their whole relationship. Gino said if Jasmine wanted to be intimate more, she'd have to stop fighting with him all the time and putting him down.

The therapist asked Gino to bond with Jasmine intimately, but Gino countered, "She's going to have to work on those things... And also, our intimacy was better at one time."

"It was never good," Jasmine disagreed. "It was never good."

Gino said he had no desire to be with Jasmine when he heard nasty comments or things about her ex-boyfriend.

The therapist asked the couple to compromise and try to better control their reactions to things. Jasmine told Gino that she wouldn't talk to Dane again if that's what he wanted, and she reminded Gino that their romance was genuine and she was in it for true love.


Razvan said he had been expecting to make love to Amanda nonstop and to go out and have fun. He wished Amanda would be more open with him, but he apparently understood that she was trying to be careful for her kids and herself.

Razvan told Amanda that he'd like to be more intimate with her, but then Amanda revealed how she had her period.

"I think we need to do it, even if you're on your period. A real man [has] his sword with blood," Razvan joked.

Amanda figured that Razvan thought having sex would connect them more emotionally, but she said she wasn't ready or comfortable having sex yet after losing her husband. Amanda had met her late husband, Jason, when she was only 19-years-old, so her first time was with him and there was no one after him.

Razvan then gifted Amanda a bikini. She appreciated the thought, but she still felt a little guilty about being with another man and accepting presents from someone who's not her husband.

Amanda also didn't like the bikini, and so Razvan had to return it and buy her a different style. While in the lingerie shop, Amanda shared with the cashier how she didn't want to live in Bucharest because she didn't want to raise her kids in the city.

Amanda also dropped a bombshell on Razvan that she didn't want to have any more children. Razvan told the saleswoman that he wanted three or four kids, and so Amanda hoped he was joking.


Razvan had apparently told Amanda when they began dating that he didn't need to have a child of his own.

Amanda later admitted that she felt "misled" by Razvan since he told a saleswoman that he wanted to have children. Razvan also already had a visa appointment and told Amanda that he'd be ready to move to the United States to be with her one week after her departure.

Amanda didn't think Razvan was ready to be around her as a mother, and she clearly didn't want to have any more kids. Amanda was worried her goals and future plans didn't align with what Razvan had planned for himself.

"Before I arrived, I was so sure that everything was going to go great and perfect. And to get here and have so many problems and concerns, it doesn't feel good at all," Amanda told the cameras. "I feel like we don't know each other as well as I thought."

Amanda's sister advised Amanda via FaceTime to take her time and give Razvan a chance. It was still early for Amanda to make any rash decisions, but she wanted Razvan to prove that she could trust him and depend on him.


A few days after David's arrival in the Philippines, David was preparing to meet Sheila's family. He was excited to see where she came from and what daily life looked like for her. David also brought a sweet gift for her son.

Sheila was a little nervous about introducing David to her family because they're poor and she didn't want to scare him away. Sheila didn't know what David was going to think or how he'd react.

But David was more concerned with making a good impression on Sheila's family, and so he hired a sign-language interpreter so that he could communicate with them well.

Sheila, however, felt disappointed about the idea of a stranger spending time with them as they were trying to get to know each other. Sheila also felt a little jealous when the interpreter was a young woman who could sign better than she could.

Sheila also noticed the interpreter and David exchanging some looks, especially when the interpreter said she had never been married before. Sheila actually broke down crying after the meeting.

"I'm afraid. What if David wants to go with her and not me? I don't want to show him [I'm so upset]. I can't because I don't want me and David fighting," Sheila lamented in a confessional.

On the way to Sheila's home, Sheila warned David that there was a large bucket in which her family members peed and it was going to be very hot and sweaty. Sheila insisted that she wasn't after David's money, and so she worried he'd think otherwise once he saw her home.

Once David walked into Sheila's place, he noticed that she lived inside a "shanty" in extreme poverty. There was sewage water running everywhere, and David said it smelled like feces and urine.

"It makes me feel sad. It's really awful. That's just the honest truth," David told the cameras.

Sheila introduced David to her father and then showed him where she showered with a bucket and made her food. Sheila then introduced David to her mother upstairs. Shower curtains were set up as walls and the roof had blown off during a typhoon.

David told the cameras that Sheila's living situation broke his heart. He was expecting her house to have some damage, but he said it was worse than he ever imagined. He quickly understood why she needed financial assistance from him.


David was worried about sleeping with her family that evening given there were bugs, mosquitoes, and no place to brush his teeth. There was no running water or privacy, and David said he had never experienced anything like this before.

Seeing Sheila's life at home really concerned David and gave him a lot of questions.

Sheila's dad also found it difficult to talk to David, who noted how Sheila's dad seemed nervous.

David then gifted Sheila's son a fun handheld pinball game to play, and he loved it. But Sheila's son didn't have any questions for David, and the meeting was a little awkward.

"Tonight was a big disappointment because I want David to like my family but they're acting strange because he's deaf," Sheila said in a confessional.

"I hope David will propose to me before the end of his trip, but if he doesn't connect with my parents and my son, I'm worried he could have second thoughts."

David later acknowledged the night was awkward, but he hoped tomorrow would be a better day and go more smoothly. David confirmed to the cameras that he and Sheila were in it together and her home life didn't change how he felt about her or how he was going to proceed with their relationship.


Riley's best friend Tiffanie was shown asking Violet why she didn't delete the dating app on which she and Riley had met once Riley deleted his app. Violet explained how she had deleted it on her phone but forgot her password to delete the app.

Tiffanie said Violet's answer "was not valid," and so Violet responded, "Big problem here."

Riley also didn't believe what Violet was saying, especially because she was "squirming around."

Violet complained about how Riley had killed her mood and the good vibes of the evening. They started to argue at the restaurant, and so Riley told her to "beat it," saying she had wasted his time.

Violet said Riley had no right to have a friend ask her that question and it was very impolite and disrespectful of him to put her on the spot like that.

"This right here was too much. It was the last straw for me. I'm done," Riley told Tiffanie. "I really came here with the best of intentions in my heart and in my mind, and I got my ass handed to me. It's her way or the highway, and you know what?! I'm not putting up with it."


Violet claimed Riley had acted like "a child" and a "psycho." Violet said Riley should have spoken well of her to Tiffanie instead of interrogating her like he's a police officer.

Violet vented about how she felt insulted, humiliated and trampled on.

"Is he worthy to be the man I entrust my whole life to?" Violet asked the cameras. "No."


After a fun night together at a dance club, Meisha said she and Nicola were finally on the right track.

Nicola showed Meisha the church where he prayed and went to mass, and Meisha thought it was absolutely beautiful. This town was also where Nicola's best friend lived, and so Meisha hoped this friend knew a lot about her.

Meisha then met Nicola's close friend, Wasim, and his wife May. Meisha had found a stray kitten that she quickly fell in love with, but Nicola didn't want the cat to be a part of their conversation.

Meisha shared how she and Nicola were trying to work through things together, and Nicola explained how Meisha was frustrated by the fact his immediate family didn't know much about her. Nicola called Meisha "crazy" for being so concerned about meeting his family, which rubbed Meisha the wrong way and bothered her.

Meisha wanted Nicola to be excited about their seven-year relationship.

"But instead, he's being dismissive and a little insulting of me. This is a side I have never seen of Nicola before, and it is concerning," Meisha told the cameras.

Meisha told Nicola that night that she wanted him to feel happy and proud of her, and she broke down into tears. Nicola told Meisha that she could be too emotional at times, and that made the situation even worse.

Meisha asked Nicola to act from his heart and treat her better because she didn't feel cared about or listened to.

"Anyone can be my f-cking tour guide!" Meisha complained.

"So what do you want? Hugs?" Nicola asked, before venting about how Meisha was "playing the victim."

Nicola didn't think Meisha's tears were for a good reason, and he was annoyed that Meisha always thought he was wrong and expected him to change. Nicola said there was a problem on Meisha's side as well but he didn't attack her all the time because he wanted their relationship to work.

"I am humble and observe," Nicola argued, adding how he was practicing patience and humility. "You need to change your attitude towards me and [stop] blaming me every day."

Meisha didn't feel she had ever attacked Nicola's character, and she wanted to be able to tell Nicola how she felt no matter what.

Nicola then ended the conversation to take a shower. Meisha thought Nicola had blown up a simple conversation, and she said she couldn't make sense of his harsh reaction to her trying to express herself.

Meisha had invested so many years into Nicola, and so she felt hurt, rejected and disappointed.

"I don't think this is, in any way, what I thought it was," Meisha cried in a confessional. "This is tragic to me. If this is how it goes, how could I have been so wrong? How could I have been so off base?"
