The 90 Day Fiancé franchise has seen many franchise villains and sympathetic partners, though some couples revealed themselves to be equally flawed.
90 Day Fiancé franchise cast members have often been placed into categories by fans. Many couples have left viewers divided as one half of the couple comes across as villainous, while the other is sympathetic and likable to viewers. However, sometimes both halves of the couple end up earning equal fan scorn. Discover which rocky 90 Day Fiancé franchise relationships have led to viewers calling out both halves of the couple for their equally bad behavior.
Some franchise couples, such as 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way stars Armando Rubio and Kenneth Niedermeier, are beloved from the start and remain adored by viewers. Other relationships have led to viewers clearly siding with one half of the couple, such as with 90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days duo Rose Vega and Big Ed Brown. Another trend in rocky franchise relationships is seen when duos remain together. While sometimes one half of the couple starts out as more unlikable, both parts of the couple end up being equally disliked as their relationship progresses.
Many 90 Day Fiancé fans start to sour to cast members when they refuse to leave their partners despite clear red flags. This is beginning to happen to recent The Other Way cast member Alina, as audiences are losing sympathy for her as she refuses to leave franchise villain Steven Johnston despite plenty of evidence that he was unfaithful. On the other hand, other couples have always come across as unlikeable and were unable to redeem themselves. Find out which 90 Day Fiancé couples viewers think share equal blame in their relationships.
Natalie Mordovtseva & Mike Youngquist
Natalie Mordovtseva and Mike Youngquist are one franchise couple who dragged their relationship on for far too young. Originally Mike earned viewers’ sympathy for having to put up with Natalie’s chaotic and offensive behavior. However, viewers eventually realized that Mike was just as bad as his now estranged wife. Mike refused to either break up with Natalie or work on their relationship when the couple last appeared on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? This left the duo in a painful standstill as Natalie continued to be chaotic and arrogant, while Mike was faulted for being cold and indifferent. Mike and Natalie’s marriage came to a close with viewers sick of seeing both halves of the couple, although Natalie now appears on 90 Day: The Single Life.
Tiffany Franco Smith & Ronald Smith
Tiffany Franco Smith and Ronald Smith are another franchise couple who saw their relationship end after Happily Ever After season 6. Tiffany has tirelessly reminded audiences about Ronald’s gambling issues and criminal past as she tries to paint herself a victim and drag him for being a bad partner and parent. While Ronald certainly has his faults, many viewers soured to Tiffany due to her determination to slander her husband. Tiffany is now labeled a drama queen who is more focused on smearing Ronald’s reputation than preserving his relationship with their children, while Ronald is also faulted for being a lazy and misogynistic partner.
Paul & Karine Staehle
Paul and Karine Staehle are considered the most chaotic 90 Day Fiancé couple, as issues run rife for both of the married parents. Karine has accused Paul of assault and sexual misconduct before admitting to lying about what happened. However, she is now making new accusations after a video of her assaulting Paul in front of one of their children was released this week. Many viewers get bad vibes from Paul, who has a criminal history and appears to consistently upset Karine. Overall, both Paul and Karine appear to be deeply troubled, which raises concerns for the safety of their children. They have even obtained restraining orders against each other during their frequent messy splits.
Eric Rosenbrook & Leida Margaretha
Eric Rosenbrook and Leida Margaretha are arguably the most notorious 90 Day Fiancé franchise couple. Mega-villain Leida infamously kicked Eric’s teenage daughter Tasha out of their home and obtained a restraining order against the young girl after they clashed. Leida has also been faulted for lying and deceiving audiences at every opportunity. While Leida is despised by viewers, many are just as furious with Eric for taking the side of his new partner rather than standing up for his own daughter. Because he neglected Tania, Eric is considered just as unlikable as Leida to many angry viewers.
Andrei Castravet & Libby Potthast
Andrei Castravet and Libby Potthast are another 90 Day Fiancé couple who earn equal negative feedback. Andrei has been put on blast for his lazy nature and foul language, as well as his hotheaded temper. Meanwhile, Libby is notorious for her messy and chaotic family. Libby and Andrei are also categorized as equally entitled and arrogant. Though their marriage to each other appears stable and strong, many viewers find both halves of the couple to be equally flawed and unlikeable.
Jovi Dufren & Yara Zaya
Jovi Dufren and Yara Zaya are another franchise couple who have remained together but manage to annoy many viewers. Jovi was initially the only half of the couple disliked by viewers. The American was obsessed with visiting strip clubs and didn’t want to sacrifice alcohol and partying to be a husband and father. While Yara was initially liked by viewers, she has since seen her popularity plummet. Yara is accused of being snobby, stuck up, and materialistic. Meanwhile, the mother has been called out for her seemingly fraudulent online boutique and recent disastrous makeup launch. Many franchise fans think Yara is scamming her followers with her poorly made and over-priced products.
Jesse Meester & Jeniffer Tarazona
Jesse Meester and Jeniffer Tarazona both have failed to win over viewers or convince fans of their romance on The Single Life. Viewers have accused Jesse and Jeniffer of faking their stiff and awkward relationship for clout, as many deny the authenticity of their relationship and rumored marriage. The alleged couple shocked viewers by revealing they will be selling a naked calendar of themselves, which was regarded as extremely cringe-worthy. Overall, neither Jeniffer nor Jesse is popular among 90 Day Fiancé fans.
