‘Before the 90 Days’ Season 5 Fans are Baffled at Gino’s Christmas Gift to Jasmine
One of the most intriguing couples on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5 is Jasmine and Gino. Out of the seven new couples introduced this season, they’re the pair fans seem to have the most questions about. Gino, who admits that Jasmine is out of his league, lives in Michigan. Meanwhile, Jasmine was born and raised in Panama City, Panama. While they’ve chatted over video calls and through texts for the past nine months, they finally took the next step to meet in person.
‘Before the 90 Days’ Season 5 star Gino admits that he paid for different cosmetic procedures for Jasmine
Early on in Before the 90 Days Season 5, Gino admitted that he coughed up the money for a few different cosmetic procedures Jasmine wanted. Gino’s family was skeptical of Jasmine’s intentions, especially his uncle Marco. Gino hasn’t been able to work for the past several months. Uncle Marco was nervous Jasmine might be taking advantage of him.
Gino told Uncle Marco, “Since I’ve been smart with my savings, I thankfully have been able to send money to help Jasmine out.” He confessed to his uncle Marco that he had sent her some money. He said, “She’s not a materialistic kind of person.”
However, later in episode 1, Gino revealed to the cameras, “I’ve helped for things such as, you know, doing her lips or maybe her eyebrows. Or maybe facial treatment, possibly her hair or her teeth.”
In Before the 90 Days Season 5 Episode 5, Jasmine pressured Gino to spend over $500 on clothes for himself. However, once he heard the total, he quickly backed out and didn’t purchase anything. Jasmine, noticeably annoyed, marched off and gave Gino the cold shoulder.
Meanwhile, Gino told cameras, “I know she’s trying to get me to spend money on myself, and not her, but I don’t want her to see me as a walking cash machine.”
Gino gave Jasmine an electric toothbrush as her Christmas present
Before the 90 Days Season 5 was filmed over Christmas in 2021. This means fans see Gino and Jasmine exchange gifts as a couple for the first time. Jasmine gives Gino a t-shirt with a funny saying and a pillow she had designed. However, Gino’s gift to Jasmine was much less exciting.
He gave her her Christmas gift upon arriving in Panama but didn’t tell her it was her Christmas present. When she asked Gino for her gift after he opened the ones from her, he awkwardly told her he’d already given it to her.
“The toothbrush… I probably should’ve waited until Christmas to give it to you, but I just couldn’t wait,” he explained to a very disappointed Jasmine.
Fans were absolutely baffled at the toothbrush gift in ‘Before the 90 Days’ Season 5
A toothbrush might be an acceptable gift in certain circumstances, but this was clearly not one of them. Jasmine expected much more in a Christmas gift from Gino, and fans were just as baffled.
One Redditor wrote, “Like I get it’s expensive, but no. Just no. A toothbrush is something you give someone after many moons and years together. Not for a fresh relationship or for Christmas.”
Another user chimed in to say that it wasn’t weird because the toothbrush wasn’t expensive, either. “I would be pissed, first off it’s a strange a** gesture and me personally I don’t prefer electric toothbrushes, if I did I’d buy my own they are not expensive in my opinion even the higher end ones. And that’s just weird too weird for me as others said maybe as a stocking stuffer! Really doesn’t matter the price of the gift just as long as it’s not completely stupid and weird.”
Jasmine made it clear she expected a more meaningful gift, but Gino didn’t get the message. Fans will have to wait and watch more of Before the 90 Days Season 5 to see how all of this plays out in the long run.
