It may be over before it even started, because the tumultuous couple of 90 Day Fiancé, Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva, are back for season 8 of the hit TLC series, but it’s not all happy for them this vacation season.
The couple already had a rocky start during Season 7, including cheating allegations and a broken engagement. Now, fans will get to follow the move of Ukrainian native Natalie Mordovtseva to Sequim, Was. on the K-1 visa as she adjusts to living with her fiancé.
For a show that capitalizes on the collapse, this misguided couple is about to have another season of possible relationship problems. A sneak peek for what comes this season showed Natalie Mordovtseva getting on a plane during the pandemic and possibly leaving Mike Youngquist again, by Us Weekly. If Natalie struggles to get over their past problems, will there even be a wedding after all?
90 Day Fiance: Mike Revealed Some Red Flags About Natalie
Before Natalie Mordovtseva even came to the U.S., she already demanded that Mike Youngquist change his lifestyle for her. According to a recap of TV Insider, Natalie Mordovtseva continuously encouraged Mike to convert to her religion. Mike Youngquist, who is famous for his belief in aliens, as reported by Screen Rant, has previously stated that he hopes Natalie can let him be his own man.
Natalie Mordovtseva also asked Mike Youngquist to force his uncle Bojangles to move out of their family farm. She referred to Bo as a “stranger” before Mike Youngquist stood up. “I think she needs to be more open and accepting,” he said to the camera during the Season 8 premiere. Natalie was also unable to say that she loved Mike when he visited her in Ukraine.
Fans last saw the couple together in person during the Season 7 Tell All reunion, where Natalie Mordovtseva revealed that she believed Mike Youngquist had cheated on her. She returned the engagement ring, which led to speculation as to whether or not their relationship was over. According to Newsweek, however, that may still be the case. Mike Youngquist apparently asked Natalie to return to the Ukraine, citing the pressure of getting married in 90 days to be too much during a pandemic. Natalie called Mike a “monster” in a sample clip.
