In the 90 Day Fiancé Season 9 trailer, Patrick gives more detail about how he met the love of his life, Thaís, and how he was worried she was too good to be true. He revealed to the cameras, “We swiped right, and I was like, ‘Yeah! This is the hottest girl I’ve ever seen in my life. Please be real.'”

The official 90 Day Fiancé Instagram shared a preview clip of Patrick getting ready to meet Thaís at the airport. He says, “Thaís arrives today. I’m getting ready to go to the airport and pick her up. Honestly, it’s a dream come true.

Patrick explained the extensive man-scaping routine he did before her arrival. He explained, “I got a facial, my hair cut, got a tan going, lost some weight, and got my back waxed, so I’m ready to go.” Check out the preview clip below:

However, the fantasy quickly wears off when Thaís is not feeling at home living with Patrick and his brother. Thaís points to Patrick’s brother’s habits, saying, “So crazy, drink beer in the morning [sic].” Patrick tells the cameras, “Living with my brother it’s going to be really awkward.”
