    S03.E04: Little Lies

    The USA doesn't ban its citizens from visiting Syria. No US consular officer or law enforcement officer has any lawful power to stop her from going to Syria. Some Europeans are visiting Syria as tourists these days, much of the country is safe. However, Syria basically isn't issuing tourist visas to American passport holders, and hasn't for the last 1-2 years. I've looked into it myself. Whether she can get some other kind of visa to move there or marry him there, I don't know.
  2. If any of you want some mid-week entertainment, I encourage you to watch this very real documentary "Love Me," about middle-aged American men who seek young Ukrainian mail order brides.

    S03.E03: Pack Your Bags

    Russia and Ukraine have a disproportionate number of women online playing the love scam game. It works the same way the Nigerian prince inheritance scam works. The scammer promises the mark millions of dollars from the inheritance but you just need to send a little money first for taxes, then for customs, then for administrative fees, then some surprise comes up and you're so close to getting the millions of dollars but you just have to send a few hundred/thousand more. Of course, the inheritance does not exist. The beautiful Ukrainian bride also doesn't exist. Maria may exist, but she has no interest in ever meeting Cesar. All that a Ukrainian love scammer wants is for the man to send her money every month, and send her money for plane tickets, and she'll come up with excuse after excuse of why she can't meet him, like "I missed the flight" "Immigration problems" "There's a war," etc. They never meet the guy, they don't want him coming to Ukraine and messing up their shit. If this particular scammer meets Cesar it will only be because of this TV show and the potential windfall from appearing on it.

    S01.E11: Blind Trust

    I will add that I think there's no way that while Evelin and Corey were "on a break" her American ex-boyfriend just happened to visit Engabao without her inviting him. Engabao's not the kind of place someone passes through and then bumps into an ex by accident, like a chance encounter at O'Hare on a business trip to Chicago. You have to have a reason to go to Engabao. She must have asked the guy to come. Speaking of backwater Latin American villages, are there no houses for rent in Tonatins priced between $260 and $1100 a month?

    He's been coming and going to Ecuador for four years and he still says "Mi nombre está Corey" which anyone who has studied Spanish more than about two weeks would know is wrong.

    It's the danger of having Facebook messenger notifications on your phone and then letting your boyfriend hold or look at your phone. Because a guy you have been messaging days or hours earlier can suddenly send you a message that pops up. Speaking of which, have we discussed that the cast members never say "Facebook" they speak of contacting each other or other people on "social media." That's always signal to me that things are kind of scripted because no one really talks like that.

    Some countries just have very high taxes on fees when importing a car and only allow the importation of new cars, not used ones. https://gringosabroad.com/how-to-buy-a-vehicle-in-ecuador/ Serena Williams is thick. Tiffany is obese.

    S01.E08: Chickening Out

    Get a hotel? That'll never happen. Virtually every American on the show who travels abroad to meet their lover is both penniless and suffering from a near-debilitating childlike naivety rendering them incapable of leaving the airport in a foreign country on their own.
  9. One of the many things that annoys me about Paul is he uses unnecessary colloquialisms when talking to Karine and to the translator app. Like he told her "I'm going to have to bust my rear end" to make money instead of using language she or the app can understand, like "I will work very hard"

    As a what? I'd watch an entire show of Paul running set to the "Baywatch" theme.

    Corey & Evelin: The Bae of Pigs

    She tried living in the US. In a cult-like compound in the woods. For six months. She decided she doesn't want to live in the USA. I don't see it as selfish for her to want to live in her home country, just as it wouldn't be selfish for him to want to stay in the US.
  12. I may be in the minority here, but I think she is hot as shit.
  13. Sure but most guys like that aren't all that motivated about getting married and proposing to women they barely know. He's got the same incentive to marry an American as some of the Russian women on this show.
  14. Maybe land grabbing or land seizing is the more neutral term, the blacks who are taking the land view it as reclaiming their land rather than stealing it. But my point is, a lot of whites are trying to get the heck out of South Africa. https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1083530/south-african-farmers-land-reforms-migration-australia
  15. My understanding is that the quality if life in South Africa is going way downhill especially for whites. There's a lot of crime and corruption and whites are getting their land stolen and feel like the blacks are running the country into the ground in many ways. A low class South African man may have the same motivation to get out of South Africa that a young Russian woman does to get out of her country. Hence Ronald meeting a chubby American single mom who visits South Africa and immediately proposing to her.
