90 Day Fiancé: Patrick and Thais

Viewers have finally seen a glimpse into Patrick and Thais’ blossoming relationship, and it’s pretty clear how loved up the pair are. When Patrick took a trip to Brazil to reconnect with his father, he decided to set his location there on a dating app.

This is where their romance began, as the pair matched on the app. As always with most dating app users, Patrick was hesitant that Thais was a catfish and prayed that she was real.

To his surprise, she was who she said she was, and they have never looked back. Patrick said that Thais is the “hottest girl” he has ever seen in his life, and after eleven months of knowing each other, he proposed.

As the pair are now fiancé’s with their K1 visas, viewers get to watch their relationship develop for themselves on 90 Day Fiancé
