’90 Day Fiancé’: Elizabeth Answers the Question She Hates Being Asked About Andrei
After making waves on the fifth season of 90 Day Fiancé, Elizabeth Potthast and Andrei Castravet have decided to continue their journey on its spinoff Happily Ever After? The latest season follows the couple as they continue to work through their issues and try to find their footing in the United States, but as viewers know, it’s no cakewalk.
As their story plays out on television, Elizabeth recently took to social media to respond to fan questions. When a viewer asked if there’s anything she hates hearing, Elizabeth was quick to let them know how fed up she is with one inquiry.
The question Elizabeth hates being asked
According to SoapDirt, Elizabeth was in a Q&A session earlier in July when a fan asked her to share her most-hated question. Acting like a viewer of the show, she stated several variations of the question she hates hearing from fans. “Does Andrei have a job” and “does he [Andrei] have a job yet?” Elizabeth mused.
It’s no surprise Elizabeth hates that question so much
Viewers know that Andrei’s employment status has been a major talking point on the show and also a point of contention in their relationship.
The pair met a couple of years ago when Elizabeth was visiting Ireland, where Andrei had been working as a bouncer. A native of Moldova, Andrei has conservative views and often expresses his support for traditional gender roles. But ever since he moved to Florida with Elizabeth, he has failed to maintain employment. Instead, he has been a stay-at-home dad to their daughter, Eleanor Castravet, while Elizabeth foots their bills.
Making matters worse, Andrei tends to demand help from Elizabeth’s parents. He even wants them to pay for their second wedding in Moldova — something he wants so his friends and family can attend. His request led to a fight between them that has yet to be resolved.
Elizabeth and Andrei clashed over his lack of employment in the latest episode
Elizabeth and Andrei were visiting Moldova in the July 12 episode when they got into an argument at breakfast. Elizabeth had been asking Andrei’s mom about her cooking routine and how often she does it when Andrei started to compare their cultures and bragging about how Moldovans are “more energized.”
“Is that why you have a job? Is that right? You’re a man, right? You’re the head of the household?” she shot back. Andrei warned her not to insult him in front of his family, but the back-and-forth continued.
“I don’t know what is going on with Andrei since we arrived acting like a chauvinistic Alpha male that talks about Moldovan housewife traditional roles when he lives in America and he’s a stay-at-home dad and I’m the breadwinner,” she vented in a later confessional.
The couple managed to get over that particular incident, but they had another fight in the episode set to air on July 19. Tune in to TLC at 8 p.m. ET to see what happens.
