On 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, a man named Larry Passariello, who works at McDonald’s and hails from Pinellas Park, Florida, meets a girl named Jenny online. He is a father and a man without a ton of money, so he cashes in some of his 401k in order to fly to the Philippines to meet Jenny in person. Larry has been a manager at McDonald’s for 11 years and his two sons are 18 and 14. Larry says that each son is from a different relationship, with women who he never married.
Larry said that his dating life in the United States has not been good, so when his cousin Buster found a Filipino wife online, Larry thought he would do the same. He met Jenny, who is only 24 years old, and he has been warned that she may be playing the field on the internet. When Buster hacked one of her accounts, he found a bunch of messages from other men and it appeared that she was still dating other people.
Larry told TLC that Jenny is a devout Catholic and that he was attracted to her, especially when she said she wanted to cook and clean for him. He said that Jenny began telling him that she loves him after three weeks of meeting online.
When Larry meets Jenny’s family in the Philippines, they offer a boar for feasting at his welcome party. Unfortunately, Larry is not an adventurous eater, as he puts it. He becomes nervous about the effects the boar may have on him and ends up offending Jenny’s family members.
