Got the dreaded 221g from the embassy in Manila

This was a K1 interview. Interview went well, except that the consul was not very happy that beneficiary only had 5 pictures of her and the petitioner to show. (Yes, both are camera shy.) Another trigger was that beneficiary was not able to satisfy the consul with her answer to this question: What are your fiance's hobbies? Beneficiary replied with "fishing, hunting, and camping," to which the consul followed with "What does he hunt and how many?" Beneficiary was very nervous and replied with "I don't know." The consul remarked "How come you don't know, he is your fiancee?" The consul asked for more evidence of relationship, specifically facebook logs with date stamps going back to their first meeting, will/insurance policy/checking accounts indicating beneficiary's name was added (this is kind of impossible since beneficiary is not here in the US. They submitted phone bills (up to hundreds monthly) and money transfer receipts (the consul did not accept the receipts) to show evidence of a bonafide relationship. Anyhow the following is what they will submit to the embassy:

1. Bank application form showing beneficiary was added to his checking and savings accounts.(Benefits of living in a small town. Of course his insurance company would not add an alien without proper documentation to his policy.)

2. Printed facebook logs with dates. (Contains no lengthy conversation as they communicated over the phone 98% of the time.)

3. Affidavits from his pastor and four U.S. based friends.

Any other ideas? How long does it normally take to get an answer after a 221g?
