’90 Day Fiancé’: Fans Commend Elizabeth for Finally Taking a Stand Against Andrei
Elizabeth Potthast of 90 Day Fiancé has done her best to support Andrei Castravet as he tries to find his footing in America. But as a lot of us witnessed in the July 12 episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? she is growing increasingly tired of having to pull all of the weight in their relationship.
Elizabeth got so annoyed with him in one particular scene that she even snapped at Andrei, which drew praise from many viewers.
What happened between Elizabeth and Andrei?
The moment went down during the couple’s first day in Moldova. Elizabeth had been helping Andrei’s mother prepare breakfast when they all finally sat down to eat.
As they conversed, Elizabeth questioned if his mom cooks every day and if that makes her tired. Though she answered in the affirmative, Andrei mistranslated, telling Elizabeth his mother doesn’t mind because, “This is how it is in Moldova.” Making more comparisons between their cultures, Andrei quipped, “We 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.
“You don’t want to insult me like this in front of my parents,” he warned. “It’s good that they don’t understand it.” But Elizabeth only grew more irritated as he continued to compare their cultures.
“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.
Andrei, however, argued that he was simply telling Elizabeth like it is.
Fans react to Elizabeth calling out Andrei
Knowing all the drama in their relationship, fans were proud to see Elizabeth finally taking a stand and calling out Andrei, who has drawn criticism for his “controlling” personality and inability to get and maintain a job.
One viewer tweeted, “I get why she called him out. Yes, call him out on his BS, by all means.” Another wrote, “Yas! He is such a jerk!!” while someone else added: “It’s about time!”
But other tweets were more critical of Elizabeth. One fan argued, “Andrei has not changed since they were married. Now she realizes he’s a ‘Chauvinistic Alpha Male?’ What is she going to do about it?? She’s enabling him in every since of the word. She allows him to disrespect her and her WHOLE FAMILY!!!!!” A second fan declared, “Elizabeth deserves what she tolerates.”
Overall, though, it seems like a lot of people sided with Elizabeth. Even some of Andrei’s friends took her side in the July 12 episode, saying that he had gone “soft” after moving from Moldova, where he once held a decent job.
