90 Day Fiance fans slammed Mike Youngquist for wearing a Bluetooth earpiece at counseling.
Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva have come a long way into season 8 of the TLC reality show, but fans aren’t still convinced that they are made for each other. In the previous season, Natalie revealed that he didn’t love Mike and tossed her ring, and Mike threw in the towel in the last episode.
Mike showed disrespect for Natalie’s couples therapy idea when he wore a Bluetooth earpiece to the session. As a result, 90 Day Fiance viewers based the reality TV star in the meanest of ways.
Mike described the idea of seeing a counselor as “throwing a bunch of money” just to have a “simple conversation,” when Natalie first suggested they see a counselor. After finally saying yes to therapy, Mike showed his expressionless face as he sat on the therapist’s couch, and on top of that, he wore a Bluetooth earpiece.
He denied Natalie’s problem of struggling to adjust to a new country, and claimed he was “struggling internally” and was “unhappy.” Aside from that, he spoke to the show producers about Natalie being unfit in his ideal world. It wasn’t Mike’s disdainful attitude that irked fans, but his Bluetooth headset.
A post on the 90 Day Fiance community on Reddit shared a picture of Mike from the scene with a caption, “Nothing says emotionally available like wearing a Bluetooth earpiece during couples counseling.” The top comment on the post says, “I wish they would both get everything out on the table already,” while noting that neither Mike nor Natalie seem willing to admit they are hurting.
“It’s hard to heal without acknowledging what the problem was/is,” the TLC viewer added. The next comment points out that both reality TV stars are acting out, “Natalie with her nasty comments and Mike with his non-committal passive-aggressive attitude.”
Some fans suggest Mike and Natalie have already called it quits. This thought stems from the fact that in season 7 of 90 Day Fiance, it was established that the pair has nothing in common. They are different in terms of values, cultures, and lifestyle choices, such as food and spirituality.
“Sometimes opposites attract but neither is compromising,” one fan wrote. A clipping from a local Sequim newspaper, which was posted on Reddit shows that Michael Allen Youngquist Jr” and Nataliia Podiakova tied the knot in Mar. 2020, however, it is unclear if the couple is still together despite getting married.
