‘Before the 90 Days’ star Ximena confessed to her sister that she found Mike’s behavior unflattering

For most of this season of Before the 90 Days, Ximena’s edits showed her as the one with more red flags in her and Mike’s relationship. She lied to Mike about her ability to give him his own children. Plus, her past relationship with a hitman could potentially put Mike in danger. While those are certainly some major red flags, the show portrayed Mike as the one getting a raw deal.

In Before the 90 Days Season 5 Episode 7, Ximena and Mike finally spend some alone time together at a hotel away from her family and sons. One morning, Ximena wakes up and steps outside to call her sister. She confesses that Mike’s behavior turns her off and she even asks, “Am I getting another kid?”

The episode shows a montage of some of Mike’s more unflattering characteristics. He leaves his dirty clothes all over their room. Plus, he burps loudly when they eat dinner with her father and children. He also passes gas when he kisses her. 

At first, Before the 90 Days fans saw Mike as innocent and a perfect example of someone getting in over their head in an international relationship. Now it appears the tables have turned, and audiences are more sympathetic to Ximena’s situation.

Mike’s behavior disgusted several fans, and they felt terrible for Ximena

Flatulence, and gas in general, can typically be overlooked if done sparingly in most relationships. However, it looks like Mike got too comfortable too quickly. His actions caused plenty of fans to comment about the situation.

One Redditor wrote, “It’s okay to let our a gas/burp here and there ONCE you are in an established relationship but it’s rude AF when you are still in the getting to know each other and charming phase. Such a turn off and honestly with the way he looks already, he really can’t afford to be that gross in the beginning.”

Another user expressed similar thoughts, “I know it’s a normal human function and yada yada, but it’s disgusting to parade it around all the time like that. It’s a turn-off, and if you do it enough around me I’m just going to be turned off by you in general and that’s not a good thing for a relationship.”

Although, one Redditor attempted to give Mike some slack, “Since he lives with other men, he probably thinks it’s okay to do that whenever. I get it sometimes it slips, but I think he could’ve at least said excuse me, especially when he’s making an impression on her family. Even in America, it’s considered impolite which could be a reason why he’s having trouble with women.”
