Edited to add: hooray! Glad I'm not the only one!
Did anyone else worry at first that the Palestinian woman was about to get her heart broken? It seemed at first that her suitor wasn't as serious as she was about the whole thing (like he just got engaged to hang onto her or something), but he quickly showed how serious he was and began "jumping through hoops." I really felt for her when it was finally time to leave and she just lost it.
I loved the Nigerian couple. Israel just lit up the screen everytime he appeared. I got completely caught up in their story, from the sudden health woes, to dealing with the people they left behind, etc. Ngozi was so loving and luminous at the very end, talking about how Israel is always happy and smiling. Very touching moment, there.
The Dominican baseball players didn't hold my interest quite so much, but they had their moments. The scene where they show the American guys casually talking about getting $100,000 and then switch to the Dominican guys beaming about getting $4,000 was amazing, though.
