90 Day Fiance star Andrei Castravet seems to actually have a great relationship with Elizabeth Potthast‘s family. The outspoken Moldovan native showcased his fun side with his in-laws. A rare sight for viewers of the show. Andrei has always been portrayed as a difficult husband who gets on the nerves of his wife’s family. But was all of the family “hate” featured on the hit TLC show fake? Apparently, many are convinced that Andrei gets along quite well with Elizabeth’s family in real life.
90 Day Fiance: Andrei Castravet & Elizabeth Potthast – Is All The Family Drama Fake?
Was the drama between Andrei Castravet and Elizabeth Potthast’s sisters and her father all for the show? The 90 Day Fiance couple spent Thanksgiving with the whole family and the celebration looked nothing short of fun. Over the weekend, Elizabeth shared a glimpse of their fun bonding moment.
In a video selfie, a serious-looking Andrei stands with his arm on his waist. A few seconds later, Elizabeth, her sister Jenn and sister-in-law Megan came out of hiding behind his back. The group then broke out a comical turkey-trot dance. Their fun time led to speculations that their intense family conflict on 90 Day Fiance is not real.
Andrei & Elizabeth’s Family’s Get Along Well In Real Life?
By the looks of it, Andrei Castravet had a blast bonding with Elizabeth Potthast and her family. The 90 Day Fiance celeb appeared more relaxed and comfortable with his sisters-in-law being around. In fact, they show no sign of bad blood at all.
Many also took notice of Andrei’s chemistry not only with Elizabeth but with his sisters-in-law on 90 Day Fiance: Pillow Talk. This is a far cry from their stressful drama, which became one of the highlights of Andrei Castravet and his wife Elizabeth Potthast’s storyline.
90 Day Fiance: A Look Back At Andrei & Elizabeth’s Family Conflicts
Many are now wondering if Andrei Castravet really gets along well with Elizabeth Potthast’s dad and her sisters. The 90 Day Fiance star didn’t get off to a good start with his wife’s relatives. Throughout their time on the show, Andrei bickered a lot with Elizabeth’s sisters and father.
Elizabeth’s siblings, Jenn and Rebekah, made it clear that they didn’t trust Andrei. On 90 Day Fiance they confronted Andrei about his unemployment and financial situation. Elizabeth’s dad, Chuck, wasn’t a big fan of Andrei either — at least at the beginning of their relationship.
It seemed Elizabeth’s father, Chuck Potthast, was not too happy about his son-in-law Andrei getting Elizabeth pregnant, because he didn’t have a job. On 90 Day Fiance, Chuck even went as far as offering his son-in-law a job. But, Andrei Castravet flat out rejected it.
Is It All For Show?
But seeing how close Andrei Castravet is with Elizabeth Potthast’s brood now, it’s hard not to think if the family hate on 90 Day Fiance was fake. On the show, Andrei quickly became the target of criticism for the way he treated Elizabeth and her family. The drama with the family was so intense that people thought the marriage wouldn’t last.
However, what we see now is the complete opposite of what was portrayed on 90 Day Fiance. It’s as if they never really had bad blood to begin with. Andrei and Elizabeth’s sisters genuinely look like they treat each other as a family. Goofing comfortably together like that is definitely something that is hard to fake.
90 Day Fiance: Another Family Chantel In The Making?
So why act as if they hate each other on the show? Perhaps it’s another case of misleading edits for the sake of ratings. The idea is not far-fetched considering TLC’s reputation for altering the actual scenario to stir more drama. Past and present cast members expressed their dismay on how they were wrongly portrayed on the show. It’s possible that it’s the same case for Andrei Castravet and also Elizabeth Potthast.
Another theory is that the Andrei and Elizabeth could be following into Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett’s footsteps. The controversial couple hated each other’s family since day one. That same hate became their ticket to their own 90 Day Fiance spinoff, The Family Chantel.
Will Andrei and Elizabeth go back to feuding in exchange for another season or better yet, their own spinoff? Regardless, it’s good to see how well the Potthast family gets along with Andrei Castravet — at least for now.
