Other topics covered in the Q&A apart from ‘being misunderstood’

A few other random questions from 90 Day Fiance fans came in for Elizabeth. But, there was also one addressed to Andrei about American culture. The follower asked about the “hardest cultural difference that Andrei had to get used to.” Andrei replied, saying that he “got used to eating a lot of bread…in Europe. But, here, bread is a different consistency, so [he] got fat.”

An interesting answer came when Elizabeth got asked what they’d do if they got “a million dollars.” Elizabeth said they’s first look after “charity.” Then they’d help “friends or family” if they needed some money. Finally, they’d “look after” themselves. And, no, Andrei did not dispute that on the live chat.

  1. He’s a horse’s ass – even his father said that he is very abrupt and one sided! She will say anything to defend him because despite all warnings – she married him. And why should he actively look for permanent work if she is worth so much and has an annual income of over $50K? As he sees it – there is no rush!

  2. I am from the same city, Kischinev, Moldova and I live in the US. Most people from Moldova are hard working. Andrei is an exception and I am sorry he gives such a bad name to immigrants from Moldova. He is just plain lazy. His wife should give him 2 weeks to start working full time or she will legally separate from him and will withdraw her affidavit of support for his citizenship. If he will be faced with a future of being homeless and penniless on his own, he will start working full time very quickly. If his wife will continue being stupid and will continue allowing his freeloading, he will be a freeloader and a parasite on her back for the rest of her life.

  3. His father called him a “hothead” and that is the correct analysis of him – despite Elizabeth’s saying he is “misunderstood”. Orly – you are right – he is lazy. He didn’t want to keep up with the house so he insisted they move out. He didn’t want to do trucking as he said it was too many hours and I really don’t see where he’s making it as a “handyman”. He hates Elizabeth’s family – was not too thrilled that his father was feted so well and did not do the same for him! He has to control everything and always puts the negative on everything! He has a lot of issues because he basically is stupid and a bully! He needs to get out of the shorts, put his “big boy” pants on and go to work!
