90 Day Fiancé couple Julia Trubkina and Brandon Gibbs have been confusing fans of the show. The couple says they’re ready to get married, but also seem unsure how to go about properly using contraception. What’s more, the two seem to receive mixed signals from Gibbs’ conservative parents, who provide them with no space for intimacy, but also provide condoms. Now, a recently released Discovery+ scene in which Gibbs and Trubkina get busy in the car has both fans and fellow cast members shocked. 

Who are Brandon Gibbs and Julia Trubkina?

Brandon Gibbs and Julia Trubkina are one of 90 Day Fiancé’s newest couples, and they seem like something of an odd match. 

Gibbs lives with his conservative parents on their sprawling farm in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. The 27-year-old is a pest control specialist, and also helps his parents out around the farm. 

Julia Trubkina is a 26-year-old go-go dancer from Russia — the two met online, and fell in love. They decided they were ready for a more serious commitment, and got engaged. Brandon Gibbs spent his savings to help Julia Trubkina make her way to the United States, as well as on her visa process. 

However, Gibbs and Trubkina are struggling with Gibbs’ parents, whose conservative ideologies mean the young couple struggles with privacy and intimacy. 

Fans have also felt somewhat frustrated by the fact that Gibbs’ parents expect Trubkina to help out around the farm. She’s been tasked with slopping pigs, gathering eggs, and similar such tasks — probably not what she expected when she was invited to stay at their home. 

‘90 Day Fiancé’ stars get busy in the car

Brandon Gibbs and Julia Trubkina have struggled with intimacy during their tenure on 90 Day Fiancé, thanks in large part to Betty and Ron Gibbs. The two parents seem to prefer their son not engage in sexual activity at all, though perhaps they’ve realized it’s an inevitability. 

As a result of their lack of privacy, the two wound up getting busy in the car. And, unfortunately, TLC decided to film up to the last possible second, leaving fans and fellow cast-members feeling a little put off. 

The two were sitting in the car, discussing the trouble they were experiencing in their relationship during Trubkina’s visit. Brandon brought up that she often suggests their relationship isn’t working, and tells her he’s trying. 

Trubkina replies that she knows, and tells him she loves him. The two then kiss, and Trubkina suggests they engage in a different activity. She reaches for Gibbs’ groin, and things heat up fast. 

Shaun Robinson can be seen covering her eyes with a cue card, and even Angela Deem is shocked, asking, “What the hell?!”

After a few more excruciatingly uncomfortable seconds of camera time, the shot transitions to outside the car, and viewers hear Julia moan.

90 Day Fiancé fans seemed shocked that Discovery+ decided to air the incredibly private and intimate moment. Many felt that it was too much, or just too uncomfortable. 

“[Y]ou know sh*t is serious when even angela is icked out,” joked one Redditor. 

“So Discovery+ is an app for softcore porn featuring Z-list reality TV stars?!” inquired one user. 

“I will never understand what that woman sees in that man, I mean his mother is going to die of a heart attack when she sees this or Julia is gonna be the next meal for the pigs,” added another fan of the show. 

Some viewers suggested Brandon Gibbs was here for the public nature of the event. 

“He literally looked right at the camera before giving the go ahead, immature pr*ck,” wrote one disgruntled fan. 

“That’s what happens when you get to age 27 a virgin and finally find a girlfriend. The refusal to wear a condom because ‘it’s no fun’ and doing this sh*t on camera just screams ‘look at me! I’m having sex!!!’” suggested another fan.
