Warning! The following contains spoilers for the 90 Day Fiancé episode “Pasta La Vista.” Read at your own risk!
I originally believed there was no way 90 day fiance Season 9 Could Dominate The Outrageous Cast Of Before 90 days Season 5, but the TLC series is really doing its best to top its sister series. Now, in addition to Bilal Haziezit’s not a funny prank and the whole controversy surrounding Miona Bell, there is one more thing to add to the list. Still, this one is part of the production crew because once again, the franchise featured another racy bedroom scene. And like, why?
Months after fans questioned the awkward bedroom scene Between Caleb Greenwood and Alina Kojevnikovathe TLC series served up yet another featuring Emily and Kobe Blaise. The final episode opened with the two the morning after their “special night” alone. This scene alone was a little suggestive, with Kobe standing in tight clothes and Emily potentially topless under the sheets. But that was nothing compared to what happened later.
90 day fiance cut to an apparent flashback, which showed Kobe and Emily getting hot and heavy in the hotel room. Kobe’s shirt came off and the big kisses and hugs soon began. Suddenly, viewers could see Emily’s underwear pulled into the frame, and the two headed for the shower (for some stuff that I’m sure can’t be shown on cable TV ).
The entire sequence, start to finish, was only a few minutes long but, as was the case with Alina and Caleb, I couldn’t help but feel weird watching it. For some reason the scene was shot by someone who appeared to be hiding in doors and such during the scene. It was all very voyeuristic and made me feel more uncomfortable than anything. Honestly, did we need the bedroom scene, or would it just have been enough for the show to imply what they were going to do?
The fact that the show has done this in consecutive seasons makes me wonder if these types of scenes are just going to become the norm in the franchise. Of course, gender has always played a role in 90 day fiance, but it looks like the number of real scenes, as opposed to couples who only talk about getting intimate, is on the rise. Again, I can’t help but ask why, especially since it’s not necessarily one of the reasons I, as a fan, watch the show.
90 day fiance, for me, is looking at the experiences of couples in unusual situations and all the things that go with it. Honestly, I don’t think so much about the sexual aspect. But maybe with the star rating join OnlyFans and do bank do it, maybe it’s just becoming a growing component of the franchise. I don’t have the answers, but I can say that this last attempt at a steamy sex scene was just as bizarre as the first, and I still wonder why it was necessary.
90 day fiance broadcast on TLC Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Discovery+ is the franchise’s current streaming home, but over time you’ll be able to access the shows with a HBO Max Subscription.
