On 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Paul Staehle and his wife, Karine Staehle, are struggling to make a life together in the United States. This week, Paul takes his wife to a wastewater treatment facility looking for a job.

Karine gave Paul an ultimatum to find a job in two months, or she’d go back to Brazil with their son, Pierre. Now that the two months have come and gone, and Karine is freshly back from seeing an immigration lawyer, Paul takes Karine to an unexpected place. Fans have a lot of opinions about the whole thing.

As it rains, Paul and Karine head to a facility, and Paul tells his wife that she will be able to see how they “treat” water here in America. “I’m taking Karine to a water treatment plant so she can see some of the other things that America has to offer for our community,” Paul tells producers. At the same time, he mentions that he’s going to try and get a job there as well.

Karine doesn’t seem to be too impressed, and tells the cameras, “I think Paul taking me to the water treatment plant is ridiculous. He is obsessed. If Paul knows so much about pipes, he should find a job as a plumber.”

The superintendent of the plant, named Barry, takes the couple, complete with their son, on a tour. Karine is clearly not having a good time, and takes the umbrella from her husband. “You crazy, dummy,” she says.

When the tour is over, Paul asks Barry if they’re hiring, but they aren’t. When they have some alone time as a family, Paul asks his wife if she “had fun,” and she replies by saying, “No.”

During the conversation, Paul asks Karine if she wants to go back to Brazil. Everyone who watches the series knows that Karine wants to go back home to see her family. Paul mentions that they should go back to Brazil temporarily. This puts Karine in good spirits, and things seem lighter for them.

Someone else brought up an excellent point that Paul has the supplies to swim in dirty water. “Well Pole does already have the gear to wade in s*** water,” they said.

One fan thought maybe Paul had an actual interview at the plant. “Lol I totally thought he had like an interview setup with this guy or something,” someone wrote.

“Paul and Karine are just hard to watch,” the fan said.

Another fan of the series loved Karine’s line about Paul and pipes when she said that if Paul knows so much about pipes, he should find a job as a plumber.
