That was our first meeting; I remember it very, very, well. Both Bill and I had the same surgeon growing up -- Bill's type of skeletal dysplasia, as well as mine, requires a lot of orthopedic surgery.Growing up he traveled from New York to Baltimore for surgery, and I traveled from Florida to Baltimore for all of our surgeries because our doctor was the best in the world. I was there for surgery and was not feeling very well post-op day 1.One day, he was creeping in the halls in his little chair and came into my room - so he tells me - and tries to strike up a conversation.Apparently I was cranky and ignored him and said go away, which doesn't surprise me.But, the reason I know it's all true is because everything he described about that day, me and the people in the room was perfect."90 Day Fiance" offers a unique look into the world of international dating and matrimony. With the quints hitting the 'terrible twos' the Busbys are busier than ever!Ostensibly the producers would set up a couple and film their blind date while adding lascivious commentary."A Dating Story" aired on the The Learning Channel on weekdays and billed itself as a nicer classier version of the blind date program that featured real people.
This show was one of several reality match-up TV shows that aired in the first half of the Y2K decade.It was spelled out so clearly for us: "A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly and is also known as a busta / Always talkin' about what he wants and just sits on his broke a--" With those iconic lyrics and video that was constructed of pleather and pure '90s realness, TLC introduced an entire generation of girls to a type of dude that would have some bearing on their dating lives in one way or another -- The Scrub.We knew we were supposed to say "No, we don't want your numbers," but did we heed the advice of our favorite crop-top-sporting trio?In the fourth season the show added a hostess; a very pretty blonde named Sabrina Soto who spent time with the man and the woman and gave commentary before and after each commercial break.The daters pretty much became attractive white twentysomethings; dates became untraditional activities like glass-blowing or beer-brewing; and episodes became more contrived with the producers attempting to create friction.
