LOVE WITHOUT BORDERS. Bravo’s version of 90 Day Fiancé but classier.

The Irish guy is cute. The gay guy is adorable. I’ll continue watching for them.

by Anonymousreply 131February 5, 2023 4:18 AM

hey OP I'm glad you made a thread. I was hoping DL could get into this

there is a gay guy lol but he's kind of embarrassing with his lack of knowledge about anything outside the US. Then again he grew up in Fargo

the Indian guy is hot as fuck! and the Indian American girl is pretty. lmao at how intrusive his parents are

I can't believe the Montana girl and the Irish guy slept together on night 1

Philip Michael Thomas' son is attractive. I wouldn't be able to handle only cold showers in Ghana though

by Anonymousreply 1December 1, 2022 7:18 AM

Philip Michael Thomas has FIFTEEN KIDS??? Damn! The Indian guy is very hot and the parents are like a crossover from Family Karma. So sweet and welcoming. The dad showing off his sons modeling pics was adorable. It’s going to be fun watching the big Fargo guy navigate that small Parisian apartment. The Irish guys house was nicely decorated and immaculate. And he cooks! She better hold on to him.

by Anonymousreply 2December 1, 2022 12:39 PM

This is my new favorite show!

I think the gay guy Aaron is cute. But his brother Adam is even cuter!

I could tell that the French guy isn't a match for him. Aaron was expecting Chris Hemsworth, and he got Frandie Grande. And in a tiny studio apartment with a bed on the floor, on top of everything else.

That matchmaker really fucked him over.

She literally could not find ANYONE better than that, in all of Paris? What a bitch.

Proof yet again, that Bravo really does hate gay men.

I also feel bad for the guy who was sent to Ghana. That country looks awful. However, the girl is very pretty and nice. He should just take her back to Atlanta, and be done with it. Who in the fuck wants to bathe in cold water from a bucket? PASS!

Miss GURLEENA (yes, that's her real name!!!) is such a fucking MEGA BITCH!

She is as cold as ice. And she certainly doesn't deserve that beautiful HUNK of a man, Shreya. He is so fucking gorgeous and humble. And his family is wonderful.

You can tell that she hates him (I have a feeling she wants a white guy), and I don't know what the Matchmaker was thinking. Another FAIL.

Besides the Miami Vice guy's son, the only other good match was Danna in Ireland. Those two got along right off the bat.

The Irish guy is adorable (but way too skinny).

He definitely has game, too. He had no problem jumping into bed with her on night ONE!! Hahaha.

I'm definitely tuning in to this.

by Anonymousreply 3December 1, 2022 4:43 PM

Aaron said the French guy wasn’t his physical type but he’s open minded enough to give it a shot and I love him for that. None of his comments were nasty and he has a great sense of humor. Finally, a positive gay on a Bravo show. Gurleena is single for a reason. I can’t believe she left those adorable dogs behind. If I couldn’t take them with me immediately I would have stayed home.

[quote] Finally, a positive gay on a Bravo show

I totally agree. Aaron is very likable.

But I think his standards are too high. Like most gay men.

He keeps expecting to find "Thor" to date him, but it's just not going to happen.

[quote] Gurleena is single for a reason

Yeah. She's a completely miserable person.

I have a feeling that she'll end up an Old Maid.

No guy wants to be with that kind of negativity.

P.S., I'll take Shreyas!

I checked the demographic stats of San Diego. It is 60% white. That leaves 40%. She said she kept dating white guys who couldn't relate or sympathize with the experience of non-white people. She didn't live in an all-white area as I posted. Why didn't she try dating black, Asian, Hispanic etc men? Her excuse that San Diego is "not diverse" seems silly. It's not like she was living in Fargo like Aaron

speaking of Aaron, he seems aright but very clueless and his standards are too high. His face isn't bad and he's got a good job but his body is average. He wouldn't be able to land the "blond muscle god" type he so desires unless the guy was going to sponge off him for money. If he got his own body better he'd have a better shot. The French guy is below him though looks and career-wise. Aaron was instantly turned off by that tiny apartment in the 18th arrondissement

by Anonymousreply 7December 3, 2022 2:59 AM

I was thinking the exact same thing R7, when Gurleena said that there were only white guys in San Diego.

I was like, "WHAT???!!!" There are tons of other ethnicities. She probably just lives and works around white guys, and that's probably all she would date.

Btw, did anyone catch what Aaron said about his dick size? He said, "I'm a big guy and it's 'proportional.'"

He must be hung!

another issue is they are of different ethnic groups in India. She is Punjabi. His family speaks Hindi so they could be from a number of areas in India but not Punjab. It was nice of the mother to go out of her way to make Punjabi flatbread for her.

so she is tired of dating white guys who don't understand but she also said she wasn't into Indian guys due to the hangups she has with her own unhappy upbringing. He's so attractive maybe he can win her over. I would be a bit uncomfortable meeting the family right away though, to be honest.

Judging from the previews from later in the season, it doesn't seem likely.

The Montana lady and Irish guy seem to have an instant connection, and it looks like the Miami Vice guy's son proposes to the girl in Ghana.

The other two couples are clearly not attracted to each other.

Brian from Ireland is such a catch!

He is a self-made man with a good job, his own home, he's very comfortable financially, and he's a hard worker.

Not only that, he's so considerate and attentive.

Brenna totally lucked out with Brian. How in the hell could he not find an Irish girlfriend???

Having watched the episode just today, I actually think it was Shreyas' friends who were stirring up shit.

Gurleena was actually being helpful. I would have done the same if I were a guest in someone's home.

However, culturally, I can see where Shreyas was coming from.

Shreyas' gay friend with the British accent was a real bitch. He was being to nasty to Gurleena for no reason. And he was doing a lot of shit-talking.

Interestingly, I think that Gurleena had much more chemistry with the older guy with the man bun, tattoos, and the British accent. However, I think he might be married to the drunk older woman.

Their house looked like a total party house! I'm surprised, especially since they're in Dubai.

by Anonymousreply 20December 11, 2022 5:01 AM

Gurleena seems to be getting along better with Shreyas.

He's such a handsome guy, but a bit high maintenance. He takes longer to get ready than she does.

That camel ride in the desert was amazing. I would love to do something like that.

Aaron and Mael are so mismatched. They'd be better off as friends.

I don't know why Aaron thought that going abroad to find a boyfriend was a good idea. It's not so much that he's uncultured, but he also seems to lack any sort of curiosity about it.

This is not a put down, but he is someone who would be happier eating fast food every day and going to bowling alleys and movie theaters for entertainment.

On the flip side, Mael is quite prissy and judgmental. It's very annoying.

I'm still rooting for Brian and Danna. They are clearly a good match. Not sure what else to say about them, except "When's the wedding?"

I have to check out Phil's Instagram. It looks like he's packing!

by Anonymousreply 23December 15, 2022 1:26 PM

last night's episode was so entertaining

Danna and Brian are clearly a match in terms of physical attraction and superficial personality but we haven't seen them have any deep conversations yet. I'm curious if they have the same beliefs and goals/desires

Gurleen and Shreyas would make a great couple based on looks. Both beautiful. Very slow process of adjustment so far though lol at least they've gotten their own place. We haven't seen any attempts at physical intimacy. They hugged when meeting for the first time, that's it! He has said he's shy but he should at least try to cuddle or something. I thought when they were looking at the sunset in the desert he was going to make a move. She looked over at him like she was waiting for it but nope, nothing

Phil and Carmen gave us some fun moments. I loved their instagram fight. Yes he is a thirsty fuckboi but sadly that seems to be genetic in his family. She does have bathing suit thirst traps too but I see her point about the dick print posts. Most straight women would be turned off by that.

Aaron and Mael are hilarious. I laughed so hard when Aaron said the foie gras reminded him of cream cheese and of course Mael was offended lol Aaron comes from a deplorable family so I'm not surprised he has no curiosity about cultures outside of the US. Very pathetic for a gay though. He doesn't even know how to say "merci"? holy shit. Mael seems nice but sorry I'd be annoyed if I matched with him too. He's just not physically attractive at all

Naeem and Chandra well it's too early to tell if they match well. He likes how strong she is with checking a man who's out of line but we'll see if he can handle that more than on occasion

by Anonymousreply 24December 15, 2022 10:39 PM

lmao tonight was couple's chaos

Aaron and Mael made physical progress but we see in the preview for next episode they take a step back. I don't think Aaron is attracted to Mael. Neither is that attractive. Aaron needs to fix that dad bod btw. If he stopped only eating fast food it would help

I had a feeling once Brian and Danna got to know each other more it wouldn't be so easy breezy. He got turned off when she revealed she's 38 years old. Let's be honest-she looks good for 38 but she doesn't look 20s. She could pass for 32-33 max. His own skin is so wrinkled he looks 45 minimum. Then he got further turned off by her reluctance to deal with the chickens on the farm. He said to her and the camera more than once that he really liked how she looked. Now he tells her she's not normally his type and it was just adrenaline? yikes

Gurleen and Shreyas lmao. I thought Gurleen was in the right when talking to his overly inquisitive friend because it's not his business why they haven't had sex yet. She was wrong for being mad at Shreyas though as he was defending her and she clearly was too upset at the time to see it. It appears next episode they work through that though

Philip and Carmen survived their instagram blowup lol they both seem to be the type to get mad and then get over it quickly

Kareem and Chandra just wow. He is a bit immature but she is way too uptight. I cannot believe she said she wanted to bring him to her family's thanksgiving, then she uninvited him after he annoyed her, then tried inviting him again. He was right to turn that down. He needs to balance his jokes and not do it all the time. Plus he's too pushy. She is a nagging, control freak though and I really don't see them working out but it's early on in the trip

We've seen less than 20 days so far for each couple and all of them have been fascinating to watch but I'm not sure if there are any true matches

by Anonymousreply 36December 22, 2022 9:14 AM

I felt so bad for Kareem when she uninvited him. Even her mom and sister told her she was wrong. He needs to find someone with a sense of humor and that someone ain't Chandra. Brian is the type of guy who talks about settling down and having kids but ends up alone because he finds fault with everyone he gets involved with. She's beautiful, easy going and seems very loyal. What more does he want? Mael is going to get his heartbroken.

I agree with everything you wrote about Brian, R36.

He was very, very, very into her. UNTIL she told him her age. Then he completely checked out.

He gave a lot of excuses, but the bottom line is that he's just shallow and superficial. I mean, why would you dump someone you have a connection with, regardless of their age.

Brian really is a jerk.

Chandra is gross and mean. She has a horrible personality.

Even so, Naeem is obnoxious. He thinks he's funny and playful, but he's not. He's just annoying.

Gurleen is another one who is annoying. She tries to act so tough and in charge, but she comes across as a fucking bitch.

I'm positive that's not what Shreyas is looking for. He deserves someone nicer and better, to match his own personality.

I don't like Mael at all. I think he's ugly and too skinny.

Even worse, he's very uptight and prissy and you can see that he raises his eyebrow, any time Aaron says something.

But Brian has to be the worst. He's very passive aggressive. With his fake little laugh, and fake niceness.

I think Danna is a great catch, but she is a bit lazy. She likes the "idea" of a farm, but not actually working on a farm.

Phil seems like he's trying the hardest. Rubbing Carmen's dirty feet when she felt sick? Damn, that's a nice guy.

by Anonymousreply 52December 25, 2022 6:45 PM

I've had this on my DVR for a while and just caught up on all the episodes last night. My thoughts:

Gurleen (God, what a name) has zero interest in Shreyas. In fact, I think she just wanted an exotic trip and 15 minutes of fame. Shreyas has done everything he can to make her comfortable and is really putting in the work, but she's never going to warm up to him.

Philip and Carmen - what a couple of superficial duds. When the only thing they can argue about is Instagram, you know you're dealing with a couple of narcissistic bubbleheads and nothing else. They deserve each other.

Brian is a jerk, trying to backtrack and say he wasn't attracted to Danna after being all over her from day one, simply because she's 38. And I'm sorry, but she looks 38. Is he blind? Not that I have all that much sympathy for Danna. She's a singer-songwriter who's been living in a van. If she thinks she's gonna become an Irish farmer's wife and be content raising chickens and tilling vegetables, she's lying to herself. She got blinded by Brian's looks and physical attention.

Aaron and Mael - oh, my. Aaron has absolutely no interest in poor little homely Mael. Aaron will be back in Fargo at his brother's optometry practice in no time, and Mael will be heartbroken. Mael really, really likes Aaron, and you can tell he's trying so hard to be patient, but I just don't think he's gonna get anything out of Aaron.

Naeem went way over the top with his initial attraction to Chandra, who's actually pretty plain and not very interesting. "You're so beautiful! You're so beautiful!" Enough, Naeem! He's irritating Chandra, and now she's just looking for reasons to not like him. I have a feeling he won't last much longer and will be back with mom soon. If it was me, I'd have left the day she disinvited me from Thanksgiving dinner.

I don't think any of these couples are gonna make it. And who is this supposed wonderful matchmaker who set this all up? I'd demand my money back. She sucks at this.

I actually think she's only attracted to him because he has a nice house, and probably a decent savings account.

Considering she has no house and probably no money, I can see why she's so into him.

Aaron is a mess.

I'm glad that Mael is seeing through his bullshit.

It's clear that Aaron has no attraction to Mael. It was clear to his family, as well. They should just stop the charade.

Same for Danna and Brian.

Brian strikes me as a complete phony. From his fake laugh, to his fake lines that he's feeding Danna, I don't believe a word out of his mouth.

He keeps saying, "I can grow to be attracted to you." Oh for fuck's sake, I would be OUT THE DOOR.

You don't grow to love someone, especially when you're clearly repulsed by them at the moment.

I don't understand why he even bothers with pretending, when they both know it's not going to happen.

I cannot stand Gurleena.

She is a miserable human being who cannot understand that the reason she can't find love, is because SHE'S A MISERABLE HUMAN BEING.

She's so unhappy and so confrontational and so cold.

This person will never find a suitable partner. Least of all Shreyas, who deserves someone so much better than this cold bitch.

Naeem is another sucker.

That Chandra bitch is playing him like a flute. She has zero feelings for him, but she keeps stringing him along, WHILE sleeping with her ex boyfriend.

In front of Naeem!!!

I don't blame him for going to a hotel.

He needs to leave Panama immediately. This dumb bitch is taking him for a ride.

Then there's Phil.

He's trying so hard with Carmen, and they seem to be getting along.

Until her twin shows up!

The twin is thinner and better looking than Carmen.

Poor Phil. He was trying to hide his attraction to her twin, but it wasn't working.

He thinks France is Italy, and he doesn't know who the President of the United States is. Jesus, what an imbecile. Homely little Mael could do so much better.

I have no interest in either Philip or Carmen. They're both a couple of snoozeworthy narcissists. They're probably the only couple that will end up together (but only for a few months), and that's only because of their mutual interest in themselves.

Naeem needs to back home. Chandra is a nasty bitch who was fucking her ex-boyfriend. That should be the deal breaker. Plus, she's not even mildly attractive, not interesting in the slightest, and her place is a shithole.

Gurleen - fuck that cunt. Shreyas is such a nice guy and has been so accommodating to her, and she's just looking for excuses to hate on him. I wish he'd get some balls and kick her out the apartment and keep it for himself (although I'm sure Bravo found it for them and is paying the rent on it).

by Anonymousreply 83January 12, 2023 1:03 PM

[quote] Gurleen acted like a total classless brat.

She acts like a perpetual victim. And she even tried to lie about her reasons for wanting to leave.

Arica correctly said that Gurleen was leaving "for her mental health." They even caught her saying it on camera, yet she continued to lie about it, and then attacked Arica for saying EXACTLY what came out of Gurleen's mouth!

Something is very wrong with Gurleen. Like, VERY wrong.

Shreyas totally dodged a bullet. Arica is back trying to make another match for him, but I think that Shreyas can do better on his own.

It's weird, but all of these Americans look like they have a gun to their heads, when it comes to their match partners.

None of them have any actual chemistry, and they're even saying it on the show. Yet it seems they are being forced to continue the charade.

These couples are all disasters, and the match maker could not have gotten the pairings more WRONG.

by Anonymousreply 84January 12, 2023 3:17 PM

Gurleen has serious issues, and she's never gonna be able to find a partner until she deals with them. She lashes out at the world's worst matchmaker, Arica, for telling her she should go home for her mental health, even though those are the exact words she used. I felt really bad for Shreyas, and his family kind of pissed me off, because they seemed to imply he did something to make her leave. If I were Shreyas, I'd say "hell, no!" to any future matches from Arica. She clearly sucks at her job.

I feel bad for Chandra, but that still doesn't excuse her treatment of Naeem. Now he's moved from being her potential romantic partner to being her therapist. That's a relationship that's never gonna work out.

Philip and Carmen are just plain boring. I think the producers of the show see that, too, since they seem to consistently get less air time than any of the other couples.

Poor little Mael just keeps trying to make it work with Aaron, but Aaron only wants a Thor-type guy. Drawing penises together isn't going to make them a couple.

I still don't trust Brian. He seems like an emotional manipulator to me, and he sees an easy target in Danna. If I were here, I'd go with the cutie who let her borrow his equipment so she could sing her stupid songs on the street.

Poor Mael. He needs to tell Aaron to go home. It's just not gonna happen. I also have my suspicions that Aaron could actually plan a whole excursion to Champagne by himself, since he thinks France is Italy. I have a feeling Bravo set the whole thing up and said, "Go on this day trip and try to be nice to Mael."

I like the Jersey girl who got paired up with Shreyas. I think it's the first time I've seen him genuinely smile and be happy on the show.

Phil's song was stupid and so remixed, he sounded like a male version of Kesha. He and Carmen are both still thoroughly uninteresting.

Oh, boy, Naeem. I don't actually blame him for looking for someone other than Chandra, but isn't his dating someone else a violation of his contract to the show, let alone really trashy behavior? He's basically just using Chandra's place as his hotel while he goes on an extended vacation at Bravo's expense.

I still think Brian's gonna ultimately break Danna's heart.

Just caught up on the latest episode. This Arica woman should be embarrassed to show her face. Every single match she's made has failed or is going to fail. Who would want to procure her services after watching this shit show?

The only match that seems to be working is the one that Naeem found on his own. And it looks like he's gonna fuck that up next week when he scares the shit out of the girl by proposing to her.

I think the Jersey girl is a real sweetheart, but she's not ready to uproot her life and move to Dubai. She's gonna break Shreya's heart.

Poor Mael. I just knew that idiot Aaron would crush his spirit. When Mael said he feels like an old tomato no one wants to pick, it made me sad...even if he actually does look like an old tomato.

Brian is a total dick. To actually say to Danna, "When I met you, my attraction to you was 2.5. Now it's 5," is so heartless and insulting, not to mention a complete fucking lie, since he stripped down to his underwear and cuddled with her in bed the first night she arrived. Why does this woman put up with his emotional abuse? I'm hoping on next week's finale she tells him to fuck the hell off. And throws her false eyelashes at him. They could do some major damage.

Good riddance to that cunt Chandra and her stupid customer service job. I think I talked to her on the phone last week when I was trying to get information on my medical insurance.

It's so obvious that Gabby was just sent to Dubai to finish out Shreyas' storyline.

She's probably some Bravo production assistant who was paid to take a free trip, get compensated, and play along until the 90 days ended.

That's really sad.

Which makes me wonder how Naeem met his new girlfriend. They seem like a good match, but did he meet her on his own, or through the show?

This show is one of Bravo's biggest disasters, since the Real Housewives of Washington DC!!

Not only was it a massive failure in matching people, but most of them ended up leaving early AND hating the person they were matched with.

Arica Angelo should never be allowed to match anyone. EVER.

And the icing on the cake was that the only person on the entire show to find love, was Naeem. Who found Oriana all on his own, with no help from the show or from Arica.

I thought that was a hilarious exclamation point on this total shit show.

[quote] Interesting that Brian was the only one not filmed at the end.

You can tell that Brian had "had sufficient" by the end of filming.

I am so glad that he stood his ground against Danna and Arica. They were both badgering and berating him, and though he apologized to Danna at first, by the end he had to go on the defensive.

Brian was totally inept at articulating exactly what he was trying to say, but I got him exactly.

He was rambling about Capitalism and Consumerism, but what he meant was Wokeness and Cancel Culture.

Brian was right to be pissed off when Danna said to him that she felt "in danger." That was definitely an over-reaction to his comments, and a result of women always demanding that men "acknowledge their feelings."

Bitch, they're YOUR feelings. Not his. He doesn't have to acknowledge shit. That's what makes them YOUR feelings. And he said sorry. WTF more does she want?

He shouldn't have to feel so threatened of being "cancelled" or labeled some kind of misogynist just because he wasn't attracted to Danna, and that she couldn't take a joke.

Now granted, her point about Brian "leading her on" was valid. He was totally doing that.

Aside from that, it doesn't make him a bad person or a misogynist, or a "danger" to her. That's way over-the-top. And both Danna and Arica were trying to portray him that way.

So he was right to fight back.

Another dumb bitch was Carmen.

She flat out told Philip that she didn't see him in a romantic way. Then when he tells her he's leaving Ghana, she gets angry and starts crying.


There really was no point in him staying. He went there to find love, not to make friends. She said there was no connection. He decided to leave.

What's not to understand?

I swear, women are the worst. I don't know how straight guys put up with it.

And don't even get me started on closeted lesbian Gurleena who put Shreyas through hell, only to come out later.

Dumb bitch.

Congratulations, Arica the matchmaker, on your 100% failure rate. And it's not just that the people she matched were incompatible, they pretty much all ended up despising each other!

I felt most sorry for Shreyas. He was such a nice guy, and he got screwed over twice! Gabby wasn't a bad person, but I just knew from the start she wasn't at all prepared to live in Dubai. Those Jersey girls are too family-oriented.

Naeem may be engaged now, but being as he knew this woman for about two weeks before he took the plunge AND he has to find a job in Panama City, I have a feeling reality's gonna set in and he's gonna regret this.

Phil and Carmen - what a couple of ridiculous narcissists. And Carmen getting pissed off that Phil wanted to leave? Bitch, you said you didn't have any feelings for him! Did you really just expect him to want to hang out with you for another month after that? What a delusional piece of work she is.

I think the worst match Arica made was between Danna and Brian. Danna is insecure as hell, and Brian is clueless as hell about being how to show sensitivity. The worst possible combination. The bottom line is that Brian was totally into Danna until the moment he found she was 38. After that, he checked out and tried like hell to pretend otherwise. And his stupid speech to her at the end about consumerism and capitalism was the dumbest damn thing I'd heard in a long time. Good for Danna for telling him, "No, I think I'm good" when he asked for a final hug.

At least little Mael got a bigger place. He was the true winner in all of this.
