‘90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way’ Season 3: Ariela’s Ex-husband and Biniyam (Literally) Fight Over Her
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Season 3 is going to continue following Ariela Danielle and Biniyam Shibre’s relationship. Their already rocky relationship is tested when Ariela’s ex-husband of 10 years, Leandro, makes a surprise visit to Ethiopia. Jealous Biniyam is seen wrestling with Leandro in the teaser for the new season.
Ariela’s ex-husband, Leandro, comes to Ethiopia for a visit
In the upcoming season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, Ariela tells Biniyam that her ex-husband will be coming for a visit to their home in Ethiopia. While this clearly came as a shock to both Biniyam and his family, Ariela explains that he’s only a friend, nothing more. However, it’s hard for Biniyam to accept that, due to the fact that their marriage lasted 10 years.
When Ariela was 19, she married Leandro. According to her and Biniyam’s recent ET interview, she and Leandro were “best friends,” which was part of the reason she decided to get married to him in the first place. She explained that as time passed, they both realized that they should go experience more of life than just their relationship. That’s when she met Biniyam.
Leandro and Biniyam (literally) fight over Ariela
In the teaser for season 3 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, Biniyam and Leandro wrestle. Biniyam is seen overpowering Ariela’s ex in a chokehold which results in him tapping out. The thought process behind wanting to wrestle is that Biniyam wanted to show Leandro that he’s “a man” and that he’s “tough.” Essentially, it was to remind Leandro that he’s not going to let him take his wife and child away from him.
Biniyam expressed that even after he met Leandro, it’s difficult for him to trust his intentions. Due to the fact that Ariela and Leandro speak primarily in Spanish to one another, this made Biniyam nervous because he didn’t understand what was being said. He admitted that jealousy did play a part in him wanting to wrestle him.
Biniyam is worried about Leandro taking Ariela away from him
Biniyam also has a complicated history with his ex. He has explained in season 2 of The Other Way that he has a child with another American woman. He revealed that she left him for the United States and now he’s unable to see his child. This wound hasn’t healed and it’s now his biggest fear that Ariela would leave him with their son, Avi.
He talked about his jealousy and the fact that his first child is being kept from him. Biniyam spoke of his wife, “And she’s beautiful and she’s talented. And then I don’t want to lose her… And then I don’t want to be hurt. Because when I lost [my ex], I’m so hurt. I’m so depressed.” He goes on, “That’s why I don’t want it to happen with me inside. I don’t want to lose her because I love her. She’s given me a baby.”
He did admit to ET that he’s worried about how close Ariela and Leandro’s relationship is. After they’ve divorced, they’ve remained in contact and continue to be friends. Despite Ariela trying her best to ease Biniyam’s mind, he is still convinced that Leandro’s plan for coming to Ethiopia was in an attempt to win Ariela back. Fans can watch the full story unfold on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Season 3, which premieres Sunday, August 29th at 8 pm EST.
