’90 Day Fiancé’: Julia Wants to Go Back to Russia After Her First Day in Brandon’s House

Julia Trubkina wasn’t expecting to care for pigs and chickens when she came to the United States to be with her fiance, Brandon Gibbs. After spending her first day at Brandon’s house, the 90 Day Fiancé star suggested she was ready to go back home to Russia.

The ’90 Day Fiancé’ star has to live with Brandon’s parents

As seen on 90 Day Fiancé, Brandon lives with his parents, Ron and Betty, on their Dinwiddie, Virginia farm. After spending a lot of his savings on Julia’s K-1 visa application, legal fees, and travel expenses, he decided to live in his parents’ house to save money. 

Before Julia arrived in the United States, Brandon tried to explain his financial situation. But in a confessional, he said he didn’t believe she fully understood.

“When I first met Julia, I explained to her, I’m not rich or anything, and I couldn’t move out of my parents’ house yet,” Brandon recalled. “I don’t know if she 100 percent understood when I explained to her the financial reasons, but she seemed OK about it — So when Julia arrives, we’ll be living with my parents on the farm, and we’ll have 90 days to get married.”

However, living with Ron and Betty hasn’t been easy. As soon as Julia arrived, they hounded her about birth control. They gave the couple separate rooms. And despite her push back, they insisted Julia work with their farm animals.

She’s not about the farm life 

Initially, Julia was thrilled to see Brandon’s home. She cried tears of joy, noting that she would never have to leave Brandon’s side again. But as the 90 Day Fiancé took a tour of the farm, she grew increasingly uncomfortable.

After being thrust into a pigpen, Julia mentioned that she was a dancer and designer in Russia, often working in “nice” places. And upon hearing Betty insist she does farm chores, Julia admitted she might want to leave their house soon.

“I look at him, I love him,” she told cameras when talking about Brandon. “But I look at near me, [and] I don’t know what I love more. I love more Brandon, [or do] I love more nice life? I need [a] choice. I give for me, one month. After one month, if I [don’t] love this place, I’ll say [to] him, “We need [to] go,” and we live [in the] city.” 

The ’90 Day Fiancé’ star wants to go back to Russia

On the latest episode of 90 Day Fiancé, Julia spent her first day on the farm doing various chores while Brandon was out. And at the end of the day, when he came back home, he didn’t come to greet her.

Julia felt slighted by Brandon. And after working on the farm all day, she suggested this version of American life was not for her.

“I hate this,” she told him. “And I think about [it], I really want to go home.”

Brandon tried to tell her that it was just her first day. But Julia doubled down on how much she hated it there. 

Brandon said he hoped rural country life would eventually grow on Julia. But from the way it seems, she’s not really buying into the idea.
