’90 Day Fiancé’: Is Caesar Mack Being Catfished By Maria?
90 Day Fiancé as a franchise is no stranger to bizarre couples with unlikely stories. But could this 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star’s story be too bizarre to be true? Some fans are concerned that the new star, Caesar, is being catfished by his alleged soulmate.
Caesar Mack met Maria five years ago, online — and has never seen her once in person during those five years. While the couple does communicate often, and Caesar has received seemingly personalized videos from Caesar, fans are already wondering if this hopeless romantic has been catfished or perhaps used, and if Maria is really going to meet him.
How the 90 Day Fiancé couple met
According to 90 Day Fiancé star Caesar Mack, he met Ukrainian girlfriend Maria via an international dating service named Anastasia Date that, in his words, “brings Americans and Ukrainian women to meet each other for a small price.”
Anastasia Date states that they are “connecting singles across the world with their ideal partner.” According to what Caesar told the camera, men on Anastasia date can use real money to purchase gifts for the women on the app, as well as message them. Caesar admitted to spending $450 to send Maria flowers and a card when they first met on the application.
Caesar, who is a nail technician, calls himself a hopeless romantic and reveals that he’s deeply hurt by a past relationship. “I learned to do nails from my ex-girlfriend. She was my high school sweetheart, we dated for thirteen years, and when we broke up I was heartbroken. But, I’m still a hopeless romantic. It’s very important for me to have somebody that’s my soulmate. Somebody that I can walk the beach with, live my life, and basically live our life in like, a dreamland.”
“And I think I’ve finally found the one woman that I’ve been searching for all my life,” continued Caesar. “She emailed me back and there were immediate sparks. Yeah it was like firecrackers and everything were just booming off. She’s kind, smart, funny, she makes me feel special. She is my soulmate.”
Sending her money
Caesar Mack has admitted to sending Maria a shocking $40,000 total over the course of their relationship together. During the Season 3 premiere of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, Caesar said that he sends Maria roughly $800 a month out of his paycheck, including tips.
This has resulted in Caesar living a relatively miserly lifestyle in a bare apartment — it seems clear to viewers that his choice to send Maria money every month is impacting his lifestyle.
Caesar also said that he has tried to set up plane tickets for Maria in the past, often losing the money on canceled tickets in the process. After a painful back and forth with Maria during which he tried to set up a flight to Ukraine, he finally decided on meeting her in Mexico.
Caesar received a $2,000 loan from his boss and sent it to Maria for her to book a flight and hotel to Mexico. She claimed she couldn’t leave for Mexico due to the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Caesar arrived in Mexico without hearing from Maria for three days prior.
Personalized videos, but no visits
According to Caesar Mack, he and Maria communicate “every day.” Maria sends Caesar short videos, calling him “my husband” among other pet names like “big daddy.” Some of Caesar’s friends have pointed out, however, that she never calls Caesar by his name.
In one short video, Maria is seen saying to the camera, “I can’t wait to be with you. I love you my husband.”
However, some of Caesar’s friends and coworkers are concerned, pointing out that Maria never seems to actually mention Caesar by name in the videos. At one point a producer asks Caesar, “Do you think she’s sending those videos to anyone else?”
Caesar replies, “I hope she’s not sending those videos to anyone else.”
