90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? has been a volatile roller coaster ride this season, to say the least. The Potthast family has been bringing the drama like it’s a potluck dinner, serving up passive aggressive comments and punches to TLC viewers as if everyone is starving for it. And really, aren’t we?

The drama between Andrei Castravet and Charlie Potthast finally boiled over into a physical altercation at what was supposed to be a family dinner given by family patriarch Chuck.

An argument started between him and his daughters right away, and things only escalated when Charlie showed up, exclaiming, “Look who’s back! Call the cops!”

It looked like an episode of Jerry Springer, as Charlie and Andrei’s verbal sparring erupted into a physical brawl, of which viewers on Twitter and Reddit had a lot of thoughts.

Many felt as if Andrei could have knocked Charlie out with one punch, and hilariously some claimed they were waiting for someone to get knocked into the pool, which unfortunately never happened.

A Twitter user wrote, “TLC, talk to your fight people, Charlie should [have] gone in the pool.”

Another wrote, “Well. Andrei def started that fight but idc because he should have whooped Charlie’s a** after the Moldovan wedding.”

The majority of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? viewers seemed to feel like Charlie could never win in a fight, especially with Andrei.

A fan of the show tweeted, “Charlie tried to rip Andrei’s Conor McGregor looking shirt & immediately got headlocked & hiptossed to the ground. I knew DUI Charlie couldn’t fight.”

Interestingly, many fans have speculated for a long time that many of the arguments and physical altercations you see between the Potthast family and Andrei are faked for television. Viewers have noticed the discrepancies between what appears on the TLC show and on Instagram.

  1. Both Andrei and Charlie are to blame. But think about it, who could really get along with a guy that has a personality like Andrei? Most guys would not care to be around his personality type, only a very passive, follower type of guy could tolerate Andrei. I don’t know what Libby sees in Andrei, she must like being told what to do and put in her place constantly (of course I’m talking about the characters, who knows if they really are like this).
