90 Day Fiance: Jorge and Anfisa

This episode begins with Jorge complaining that Anfisa doesn't have a job. Even though TLC has consistently promoted Jorge as some sort of young millionaire, with a several hundred thousand dollar car, he doesn't seem to be making enough for the two of them to move out of their little apartment.

You can read our expose on Jorge's wealth (or lack thereof) here.Anfisa also talks about how she would never cook for Jorge. She prefers to go out to restaurants.

Jorge talks about how he's continuing to grow his medical marijuana business. He also revisits all of the things he learned about Anfisa that he didn't know before. For instance, the fact that she's controlling and would break his phones and key his car. Anfisa says she started talking to Jorge online because he told her he was rich but so far, she feels he hasn't delivered on his promises.

Anfisa can't drive or work because she doesn't have a green card yet. But her interview is coming up for this.

Jorge says that he's cut ties with his family and friends to be married to Anfisa, but despite this, everyday that they've been married for 6 months, she's threatened to leave him.

Anfisa tells the camera proudly, "I hate being married to Jorge."

Jorge says his family has been worried about what Anfisa will do whens he gets her greencard. Anfisa herself says about getting her greencard, "I'll be free."

Next, Jorge and Anfisa go house shopping. If course, Anfisa wants to see places that are out of their price range.

Jorge says he doesn't want to spend more than $5000 per month and the home that they see is $7,800 per month.

Anfisa feels confused about why Jorge can't afford the home. Jorge feels worried since he hasn't told Anfisa everything about his financial situation.

Later, Anfisa goes shopping with Miranda, whom Anfisa met when she went ring shopping. Anfisa says she's not sure what's going to happen when she gets her greencard. The reality is, she feels that Jorge lied to her.

When Jorge goes to pick up Anfisa, he asks her how much she spent since he didn't make much money that day. Jorge decides to come clean with Anfisa and tells her that he isn't a millionaire and is actually in debt.

Anfisa feels betrayed by Jorge and believes he lied to her completely. Jorge doesn't understand why Anfisa can't adapt to his life but Anfisa tells Jorge she has no intention of "adapting" to him.

Jorge insists that he used to have tons of money, but he lost the money because he spent too much time with Anfisa, and slacked off with his business. We'll look into that later.

He tells her that he's $30,000 in debt. Anfisa wants a post-nuptial agreement.

The episode ends with Anfisa walking out on Jorge.

Loren says that she hasn't seen Sarah in about a year too and wants to spend a weekend with her in New York.

She feels good about her life given that she also has a new boyfriend.

Danielle feels proud of the fact that she'll be able to buy her own place, a trailer home.

Meanwhile, Mohamed has to return to Ohio to talk to his lawyer and hopefully, meet with Danielle to convince her to pull the annulment. Unfortunately, Mohamed gets caught on the highway with no gas and calls Danielle for help.

Shockingly, Danielle sets a boundary and doesn't do anything for him.
