The Tell-All special featured Anna, a 38-year-old from Bellevue, Nebraska, and Mursel, a 38-year-old from Antalya, Turkey; Mike, a 34-year-old from Sequim, Washington, and Natalie, a 35-year-old from Kyiv, Ukraine; Michael Jessen, a 41-year-old from Greenwich, Connecticut, and Juliana Custodio de Sousa, a 23-year-old from Goiania, Brazil; and Robert Springs, a 41-year-old from Winter Park, Florida, and Anny, a 30-year-old from Santiago, Dominican Republic.
The following couples were also featured in the episode: Blake Abelard, a 29-year-old from Los Angeles, California, and Jasmin Lahtinen, a 27-year-old from Helsinki, Finland; Tania Maduro, a 29-year-old from Colchester, Connecticut, and Syngin Colchester, a 29-year-old from Cape Town, South Africa; Angela Deem, a 54-year-old from Hazlehurst, GA, and Michael Ilesanmi, a 30-year-old from Lagos, Nigeria; and Emily Larina, a 28-year-old from Portland, Oregon, and Sasha Larin, a 31-year-old from Moscow, Russia.
Robert said Anny had been making their relationship difficult and they had encountered a lot of ups and down since getting married.
Anny agreed they had problems and she was waiting for all the promises Robert had made her.
Robert revealed on the reunion show he and Anny had a shower and a couch to make love since they still shared a room with Robert's son Bryson.
Shaun asked why Robert had renewed the lease on his two-bedroom apart when he knew Anny would be arriving in America soon and they needed more space. Robert said he didn't want to take Bryson out of the school he had been going to for two years.
Robert also said he took Anny to a secondhand clothing store as "a test" to see if she was all about money. Anny, however, said Robert had promised to buy her clothes, a phone and more.
Anny said a man showering her with material items showed her love but she'd never be with Robert if she wanted a man with money. Robert said he was paying for rent, his car, his son's school and more, and so he had money, but he just wasn't throwing it around.
On the topic of Robert's photos with ex-girlfriends on his phone, Robert assured everyone the photos were on his Facebook. Anny didn't like he had saved a photo of him kissing another girl.
Robert said he was fine with deleting pictures of his exes but he wanted to keep photos that included his children. Robert, who has five children with different women, said he wanted his kids to grow up and be able to see those pictures.
But Anny called that "an excuse" and accused him of lying. Robert, in turn, told his wife to "stop snooping."
Anny shared she would like to have children with Robert in the future, and Robert said whether or not he has more kids is no one else's business but their own.
Bryson's grandparents Ben and Stephanie Woodcock joined the conversation, and Robert told Stephanie that she's not his mother and had no right to ask Anny if she was on birth control.
Ben and Stephanie claimed they hadn't seen Bryson in a while, but Robert said it was because the pair had been sending him "nasty" messages and threats.
"The only way to hurt me is through my son, and that's not happening. You've threatened me!" Robert yelled, as Ben and Stephanie appeared to end their side of the conversation and walk away.
"There's a lot of sh-t behind [this story] that people don't know... I'm a good dude!"
Robert revealed he was once homeless and stayed with friends, adding that all of his issues were with Stephanie and he had no problem with Ben. Robert said he wasn't going to give Bryson's grandparents an opportunity to break him and his spirit.
MICHAEL AND JULIANA
Michael said it was unbelievable how much he and Juliana had been through together and their relationship was doing great.
Juliana revealed her family was expecting her to send money back home to Brazil and she did just that once a month. Juliana was paying for the home her parents lived in, but she said that since she left Brazil, her parents no longer call or text her.
Juliana cried about how her family and friends became mean to her because as she traveled around the world and didn't take them with her. Robert called that "hate," and Juliana was so upset her loved ones viewed her as a "horrible" person.
Juliana said her family didn't appreciate what she did for them, like buying a month's worth of groceries, because it was never enough and they'd always expect more.
Juliana said that unless she always said "yes" to their requests, they would hate her for saying "no."
Michael's ex-wife, Sarah Jessen, joined the couple on the reunion show. Sarah and Michael were married for 12 years, and so Shaun asked why they had divorced.
"I'll let Michael answer that," Sarah noted with a laugh.
Michael called the answer "complicated," saying he was getting a little crazy with traveling and partying. He didn't feel free and admitted he was "in a very bad downward spiral."
Sarah didn't understand why Michael didn't feel free in their marriage because she said she was supportive of his traveling and independence and gave him a lot of leeway.
Michael insisted he never cheated on Sarah until their divorce was final, but Sarah argued Michael had relationships that went beyond friendship -- and so it depends on one's definition of infidelity.
Sarah therefore suggested Michael had emotionally cheated on her, and Michael openly admitted he did. Michael explained in the course of partying with friends, he'd flirt. However, he said he never pretended to be single guy without children.
Juliana didn't know much about Michael's past, but Michael said he had informed his wife of everything he just shared at the reunion special.
Sarah said she was initially surprised and concerned about Michael and Juliana's 19-year age difference. She feared Juliana wanted to get her modeling career off the ground, receive a Green Card in the United States and then take off.
But Sarah said over time, she learned more about Juliana and discovered she has great family values. Sarah was convinced Juliana would never intentionally hurt Michael or her children, Max and Cece.
Juliana shared Sarah is her best friend in the United States and they became like sisters, and Angela pointed out that was "the most beautiful story." Angela said she could never be friends with Michael's exes, so she was clearly impressed.
Max and Cece made an appearance on the show, and Max advised the couples on the stage to learn more about each other's cultures and work to learn each other's languages.
Max said his favorite couple were Syngin and Tania because they seemed to "work for each other," and Cece shared she liked Mike and Natalie because they "appreciate each other a lot."
EMILY AND SASHA
Emily admitted Sasha had trouble making friends and gaining independence but he was able to go to the gym in her neighborhood.
After a clip played of Emily meeting Sasha's first ex-wife Masha, Emily called Masha "a very negative person" and said she took no responsibility for the downfall of her relationship with Sasha.
Sasha insisted he met his second ex-wife after he and Masha broke up, and then he confirmed he had met Emily while he was still married to the second ex-wife.
Emily, however, said she and Sasha didn't progress their relationship at the gym into a romantic one until he and his second ex-wife were separated. Emily noted she thought Sasha was cute upon their first meeting but he shot her down because he was married.
Sasha said he had made mistakes in the past in that he wasn't "a perfect" father to his eldest son.
Emily's sister Betsy joined the pair on the reunion special, and Betsy called Sasha out for telling Emily what to eat. Sasha said he knew a lot about nutrition and therefore helped his wife, but Betsy called out Sasha for earning his degree from Google.
Emily said she didn't like what she saw when she looked in the mirror and wanted to go back to her pre-pregnancy weight. Emily said her body was affecting her self-esteem and relationship, and so it was good Sasha was persuading her to be more active and fit.
Emily was looking to get more motivated, especially since she's exhausted from taking care of David when he doesn't sleep or is cranky.
Sasha said if a person eats whatever he or she wants, he or she will get what she deserve.
Tania, however, said it's important for Sasha to make Emily feel comfortable and beautiful in her own skin.
In addition to criticizing Sasha for allegedly forcing Emily to lose weight, Betsy accused Sasha of not respecting the institution of marriage as a legal commitment.
"I think we'll see Sasha's true behavior once he actually gets the Green Card," Betsy said. "Right now, he's dependent on [Emily] and our family for everything."
Emily said she was tired of hearing about the Green Card, because at that point, Sasha would be more independent and be able to make his own money. Emily said Sasha was there for her and her son, even when he spent time in Moscow, where there were many beautiful women around him.
Sasha insisted he could see being together with Emily forever, but Betsy hoped Emily would be able to be herself in the relationship.
Emily revealed she and Sasha were no longer living with Betsy, who is a bit of a nosey person.
Sasha wished Emily had a good relationship with his ex-wives after seeing Sarah and Juliana's relationship, but Michael told Sasha it's a two-way street -- and Emily expressed how she wasn't against the idea of becoming friends with them but it wasn't that simple.
ANNA AND MURSEL
Anna said her wedding day was a blur because it went by so fast and was really emotional. Anna said one of her brothers didn't talk to her for several weeks after the wedding and her son Joey never showed up to her big day.
Mursel didn't like all the sex discussion on the Tell-All, saying it's a "sacred thing," but then Anna blurted out she and Mursel slept together once a day.
Because of Anna and Mursel's language barrier, Anna admitted she wasn't always entirely certain her relationship was going to work out. While love was always there, the couple had a lot of issues to work through.
When asked why her son Joey took so long to warm up to Mursel, Anna said her kids didn't appreciate Mursel initially keeping them a secret from his family. Joey also didn't like one of his brothers, Leo, calling Mursel "father."
Joey had been used to being the man in the house, and Robert pointed out Joey was probably being overprotective of his mother. On that note, Anna said Mursel was just going to have to prove himself to her children.
Shaun then suggested she had put Mursel before her own children by continuing to date a man who kept them a secret from his family, but Anna said she took care of her children and would never leave them. Anna hoped all along Mursel would crack and just come clean to his parents.
Anna ended up giving Mursel an ultimatum -- to tell his family Anna had children or they wouldn't get married -- and Mursel explained he was in a very bad place and couldn't speak English in America.
Syngin asked Mursel if he would tell his parents about Anna's kids before coming to the United States, if he could do things all over again, and he replied, "Yes, I would tell them."
All the couples were shocked Mursel was able to get his K-1 visa reissued and called him very "lucky," and Anna said it was fate they're together.
Anna later shared Mursel wants a baby but she can't carry one herself and so they'd have to find a surrogate. Mursel said he'd be open with his parents about the surrogate, but the cast said what Mursel's family didn't know wouldn't hurt them.
"They don't have to know I wouldn't carry it," Anna said.
Mursel no longer cared about what his family would say or how they'd react to things, and Shaun seemed very impressed with that comment. Mursel appeared very focused on Anna and their life together.
MIKE AND NATALIE
Mike was trying to hold things together after he and Natalie had a falling out in which she had returned her engagement ring.
Mike revealed he and Natalie were working on their "major differences" as they went along and things had been very stressful. Natalie didn't have much to add to the conversation, admitting she didn't know what to add to the discussion.
Mike shared he and Natalie had sex three times a day when he visited her in Ukraine.
Shaun asked Natalie whether she viewed Mike as her soul mate, and she said soul mates are very comfortable around each other and naturally understand each other. Natalie said soul mates don't need to push each other or explain.
"If I say right now that he is my soul mate, it would be a lit. I'm sorry," Natalie confessed.
Mike said that was something he had been struggling with ever since returning from Ukraine. Mike was questioning himself and his relationship and had "a whole lot" on his mind.
Angela advised Mike to push through their issues and take them head on.
Natalie said it didn't seem like Mike wanted to take the lead.
Mike then watched back a clip of Natalie's friend telling Natalie that he wasn't wealthy enough for her, but Mike said he wanted to prove the woman wrong and the scene was "brutal" to watch.
"Mike, can you take care of me? Be honest and please answer this question," Natalie asked on the topic of Mike not being well off financially.
"Obviously it's a main concern if I can take care of Natalie and myself and raise a family, but I feel very comfortable that can be attained from where I am at in my life," Mike said.
Mike explained he wanted to have a baby once he and Natalie could actually physically be together. Mike said he wanted to take Natalie to doctor appointments and not have to Skype with her to see her.
Natalie shared she wants a child more than anything and it's very important for her to have a baby. Mike said they just needed to wait a little bit longer to start a family.
When asked to reveal the status of her relationship with Mike, Natalie tried to pass off the question to Mike and didn't answer. (The episode, however, ended on a cliffhanger at this point).
ANGELA AND MICHAEL
Angela said her relationship was Michael was "legit" and she was tired of people questioning their relationship and love for each other. She was trying to find a way to get Michael over to the United States.
Angela revealed she and Michael had sex four times a day -- a total of 38 times -- during her latest visit to Nigeria.
TANIA AND SYNGIN
Tania was tired of working so much and supporting the both of them. Syngin said he was well aware he needed to work and make money, but he didn't want to take a job he wasn't going to love.
Tania apparently got into a car accident and needed surgery on her foot, with screws and plates placed in it.
During the reunion, Tania strangely revealed she loves Syngin's "soft" armpit hair.
Shaun asked Tania why not postpone her trip to Costa Rica since Syngin only had 90 days in the United States on his K-1 visa, and Tania explained she had already put it off for two years at that point. Tania said putting it off for a third year would've been really hard for her to do.
Tania said people viewed her as this cold-hearted "b-tch" with no feelings but that's not really the case and couldn't be further from the truth. Michael agreed she received a lot of flack for her character and personality while the show was airing.
Tania insisted she and Syngin agreed she could go to Costa Rica and she had not made a selfish decision. But fans wondered whether her trip was for work or play since footage captured her partying a lot, so Tania explained she had classes from Monday through Friday and had the weekends off.
Syngin admitted it was hard for his fiancee to leave for 30 days, but Tania said her husband is a grown adult who can take care of himself. Syngin said Tania was his comfort, security and best friend.
In terms of what he'd like to do for a career, Syngin said he'd "like to try everything," including sing opera. Tania said she looked into singing classes and woodworking classes for Syngin but he wasn't taking any steps to explore his options.
Syngin acknowledged he battles with procrastination and so he liked how Tania pushed him a little bit.
Tania said she wanted the best for both of them and hoped Syngin would begin working soon to make money. Syngin, however, began working in the mines at age 17 and previously contemplated suicide, so he didn't want to be stupid and irrational.
Syngin suggested he had a little post traumatic stress from his job in the mines, but Tania just wanted her husband to follow through on his promises so she didn't have to remain the main breadwinner for much longer.
On the topic of children, Syngin said he was "very indecisive" and didn't know when he'd be ready to settle down and start a family. He and Tania still butted heads when it comes to their ideal timelines for kids.
Shaun asked Tania if she and Syngin would get divorced if five years passed and Syngin still didn't want a child, and she remained silent and through up her arms in defeat. Tania seemed to give away she'd leave Syngin in that case.
"I think it's definitely something we would probably break up over," Syngin shared.
Anna asked why Syngin and Tania would get married as a result, and Syngin said they only had 90 days so they figured they'd wed and try to figure things out. Otherwise, Syngin would have had to return to South Africa.
Tania said their timeline kept bouncing around and they are just hoping they come to an agreement at some point.
When Shaun broached a conversation about soul mates, Tania discussed how she had met her first love when she was only 11 years old. She seemed to think her first relationship was a soul mate type of situation, but at the same time, she said a best friend could be a soul mate and she wasn't quite sure of the definition.
Robert argued soul mates have a spiritual connection for eternity, so he wasn't sure why Tania and Syngin got married if that wasn't the case.
Tania said she loved Syngin to death and saw a future with him, even though Syngin may not technically be her soul mate.
Tania said she was in a place of exploring and learning, and she was so happy because Syngin understood and supported her. Tania said the one word "soul mate" shouldn't define her relationship and what she had with Syngin, and so the conversation made her cry.
"I don't need the world and I don't need anyone else to understand me. I just need him to, and he does," Tania cried.
Sasha told Tania just not to bring up past relationships because it hurts, and Syngin agreed the soul-mate talk had dropped a bomb on him.
