Why 90 Day Fiance Fans Believe That Mike Needs Serious Help

Season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé has been a season like few others. For the uninitiated, the long-running series follows a group of Americans who secure a 90-day visa for their international partners. At the end of the three months, the couples must decide to either get married or break up, with their partners returning to their home countries.

This season saw a host of couples from around the world, including Amira and Andrew, Tarik and Hazel, and, of course, Mike and Natalie. The latter truly brought the drama to Season 8 (and that's saying something). Ukraine-born Natalie Mordovtseva and Washington-based Mike Youngquist couldn't seem to get on the same page about anything. The season saw them fight over everything from planning their wedding to Mike's relationship with his uncle Beau.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mike called off the wedding, and Natalie began a long and complicated journey home to Ukraine. She had three days to leave the US before her visa expired, but because Ukraine's borders were closed to the States, she had to fly to France and take the train home across Europe, per Entertainment Tonight.

Throughout the season, fans, who weren't always that hot on her, began to pity Natalie while becoming increasingly fed up with Mike. Some even began calling for him to finally "get help." Here's why.

Fans are over Mike's bad attitude

The cold hard truth of joining a reality TV show is that there is always a fan favorite and, therefore, a season villain. Unfortunately for him, Mike Youngquist became the villain of Season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé. Fans grew tired of how he treated Natalie Mordovtseva and his general bad attitude, especially during one-on-one interviews. "Just watching his segments and seeing how he acts in the interviews on the show. He shuts down immediately any time someone asks even a remotely difficult question," a fan wrote under a Reddit post captioned "Mike needs therapy." "He has some skeletons buried that I think he needs to speak to someone about."

The Redditor specifically referred to a segment in which Natalie and Mike attended couples therapy, and Mike didn't take the exercise as seriously as Natalie. Other fans responded to the post echoing a similar sentiment: if anyone needs therapy, it's Mike. "He needs therapy but as we saw in the couples counseling, he'll never open up and will continue to deflect. So damn toxic," wrote one fan, who received 28 thumbs-ups from other Redditors for their insight.

As mentioned above, Mike eventually called off the wedding with Natalie, forcing her to return to Ukraine. If fans had their way, Natalie would now be in Europe living her best life, and Mike would be somewhere in Washington working on himself.
