The 90 Day Fiancé franchise has featured villains and heroes alike, but it has also showcased many cast members who have been called out for their lazy, freeloading attitudes. While many featured couples appear on the show because they have genuinely fallen in love, others have been accused of seeking out a fiancé to support them financially. This has led to a number of partners over the years who refuse to work or put much effort into their relationships.
When it comes to evaluating lazy cast members, both the American and foreign fiancés have raised red flags over the years throughout the many franchise spin-off shows. In many instances, one-half of the couple doesn’t want to put in the same amount of work as their partner. In other instances, both halves of the couple expect handouts from their fans or family members. This has led to many couples being mocked and disliked for their lack of initiative and entitled attitudes. Discover which duos and singles have displayed the most shamelessly lazy behavior in the extended franchise.
Andrei Castravet continues to star with his wife, Elizabeth Potthast, in 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?,despite many viewers despising Andrei, Libby, and the entire Potthast family. Andrei has been labeled a lazy freeloader for the entirety of his time in the franchise, as the Moldovan man has openly relied on handouts from Libby’s wealthy father, Chuck Potthast. Andrei started season six of Happily Ever After? by requesting a $100,000 loan from Chuck so he could compete with the Potthast family business. Viewers were shocked by the audacity of Andrei’s bold request and were stunned Libby’s husband had no desire to earn the money himself.
This hasn’t been the first time that Andrei has been blasted for being lazy. Chuck memorably paid for Andrei and Libby’s lavish wedding ceremonies and past rent. This has caused tension among family members. Most notably, Libby’s brother, Charlie, was angry with his father for funding Libby and Andrei’s lifestyle. However, fans have called out the entire Potthast family for their freeloading ways. Many viewers believe all the family members treat Chuck as a human ATM. This has led to fans calling both Andrei and the Potthast family lazy.
Nicole Nafziger was infamously called lazy by her partner, Azan Tefou. The American-Moroccan duo displayed their drama during seasons four and five, which included Nicole’s inability to adapt to Morocco while visiting her partner. While the couple was climbing sand dunes, Azan infamously told Nicole, “Almost there, lazy.” His comment has become incredibly memorable to franchise fans. Azan memorably admitted to being only about fifty-five percent attracted to his partner. He attributed Nicole’s larger frame to laziness and wasn’t shy about expressing his feelings about her.
Jihoon Lee appeared alongside his franchise villain ex-wife, Deavan Clegg, on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Though many viewers despised Deavan, Jihoon was undeniably one of the laziest cast members of all time. The South Korean man quickly had problems in his relationship due to his extreme laziness. His lack of ambition coupled with his debt and money troubles proved to be a recipe for disaster. Deavan eventually left her husband to return to the United States, which has created issues over the custody of their son. Since he is not financially stable, Jihoon has been relying on GoFundMe funding from fans to pursue a custody battle.
Paul Staehle displayed his bizarre relationship with his wife, Karine, in many franchise spin-off shows. However, the American’s increasingly erratic behavior on social media has caused many fans to consider him an attention seeker. Paul has appealed to his fans on numerous occasions for financial assistance after he claims outlandish familial dramas. Many franchise fans consider the American to be a perpetual liar who wants to rely on viewers’ handouts rather than take responsibility for his family. Critics have also accused Paul of inventing drama for attention.
Tania Maduro & Syngin Colchester
Tania Maduro and Syngin Colchester are one couple who franchise fans have deemed to be incredibly lazy. Tania has also become a franchise villain for her negative attitude. The couple was seen living in a shed in Tania’s mother’s yard during season seven. Tania, in particular, has been blasted by many viewers for not only being lazy, but also her sense of entitlement. The American was also labeled bossy, rude, and self-centered by viewers. Surprisingly, the couple is still together despite their history of drama and Tania’s problematic attitude.
Julia Trubkina became a fan-favorite cast member before stirring up some controversy at the season eight Tell-All. Fans spent the entire season feeling bad for city girl Julia, as she was forced to work on her husband, Brandon Gibbs’, parents’ farm despite her clear discomfort. However, it was revealed at the Tell-All that Julia chose to take on Brandon’s chores. This caused many fans to reconsider their opinion of the dancer. Many came to the conclusion that Julia should have been helping out on the farm since she was living there for free. Some critics have blasted the dancer as lazy for her vocal complaints against working for her in-laws. Julia’s confession caused many fan opinions to shift.
Season seven and eight star Mike Youngquist displayed a different kind of laziness. While his partner, Natalie Mordovtseva, is considered outlandish, she did make many attempts to salvage their rocky relationship during season eight. In return, Mike gave his eventual wife absolutely nothing to work with. The American refused to move forward or let Natalie go, which led to the couple being at a painful standstill in their relationship. While Natalie put effort into working through their problems, Mike went so far as to show up to couple’s counseling with his Bluetooth headset on. This caused once easy-going Mike to be called out by fans for his utter lack of effort. Shockingly, the couple still appears on new episodes of Happily Ever After.
