Are 90 Day Fiancé stars Patrick Mendes and Thaís Ramone still together? The couple was introduced during season 9 of the hit TLC reality TV series in April 2022 along with other couples trying to make it through the K-1 visa process and achieve their “happily ever after” moment.

Patrick and Thaís returned for season 8 of the spinoff 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? in March 2024 and fans are curious if the couple is still together.

’90 Day Fiance’ Stars Thais Ramone and Patrick Mendes’ Relationship Timeline

Patrick met Thaís on a trip to Brazil to reconnect with his retired father. After changing his location on his dating apps, the weightlifter was immediately smitten when he matched with bombshell model Thaís.

“I was kinda like, ‘man, I hope this girl’s real … like, please be real,’” Patrick said of matching with Thaís.

The couple immediately hit it off and after his trip was over, Patrick booked multiple return trips just to visit Thaís. It wasn’t long into their relationship that they started considering marriage as a possibility.

“I realized feeling that love was just something I wanted my entire life,” Patrick said. “Eleven months after I met Thais, I ended up proposing to her, and she said yes.”

The couple enjoyed a sentimental reunion in the airport, but it wasn’t all sunshine and roses for the two in their new life in Texas. During the June 19, 2022, episode, Thaís confronted Patrick about his secrecy over his finances, complaining that she felt as his future wife, she should be aware of how much money he makes, to which Patrick took offense, claiming that until she was legally his wife, she didn’t have a right to know.

The couple has faced previous issues as well, with Thaís feeling hurt about the lack of communication between her and Patrick regarding their new house. Patrick has had to deal with Thaís tracking his phone’s location, something that has been a continual source of tension between the two. And speaking of ongoing pressures, Patrick’s brother, John Mendes, has been an ongoing source of strife for the young couple as his presence (and clear disdain for Thaís) has caused some nasty altercations throughout the season.

Patrick has previously been married once before to another weightlifter. The relationship ended after Patrick’s weightlifting career came to a halt when it was found that he had been taking a banned substance to help with his athletic performance.

Why Doesn’t ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Thais’ Dad Like Patrick?

Thaís explained that her father, Carlos, did not approve of her relationship with Patrick, claiming that her dad felt that all American men wanted to do was take advantage of Brazilian women.

’90 Day Fiance’ Star Thais Kept Patrick Wedding a Secret From Her Dad

When Thaís left her native country of Brazil, she lied to her father and said she would be going on a tourist visa to spend time with Patrick instead of the K-1 visa. Under the K-1 visa, a.k.a. the fiancé visa, Thais and Patrick had to wed within 90 days of her arrival or she would need to return to her home country.

After Patrick learned that Thaís father did not know that they planned to get married, he insisted that she come clean. Finally, after several fights about the situation, Thaís and Patrick revealed their wedding news to her dad via a video chat. Carlos did not seem happy about their wedding plans, so Patrick left so that Thais and her father could speak in private.

“How do you have the audacity to stay there all this time, and now you come to me to tell me that you’re getting married?” he asked his daughter. Thaís explained that she wasn’t sure she wanted to marry Patrick, and her dad said she should have told him their plans “from the beginning” and told his daughter that he didn’t think she should marry Patrick.

“I didn’t like him very much already,” Carlos said. “I didn’t have time to [get to] know him.” Thaís tried to defend Patrick, but her dad Patrick’s intentions could be to “deceive” his daughter. He suggested that Thaís come back home to Brazil “as soon as possible.”

Did ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Thais Go Back Home to Brazil?

After talking to her father, Thaís admitted that part of her agrees with her dad because she’s seen Patrick become more “controlling” after living with him in the United States. “There’s a part somewhere inside me asking me to return but at the same time, wanting to stay,” she admitted to the cameras. “Jesus, it’s really hard. Right now, I don’t know what to do.”

Thaís then came clean to Patrick and told him her father did not approve of their wedding because he did not like Patrick. He seemed shocked, and Thaís also admitted that she thought about going back to Brazil like her father suggested. Thaís started crying and asked Patrick if he would be mad at her if she went back to Brazil.

“Things would be over between us,” he told her. Thaís explained that it was difficult for her because she missed her family and her life back in Brazil, but Patrick pleaded with Thaís.

“I know it’s very hard right now but I want you to stay with me. I can’t imagine my life without you. I would do anything to be with you,” he said.

“I just want to go to Brazil to support my brother. Protect him from Carlos [Thais’ Dad] and make sure everything goes nice and steady,” John said alongside the couple in a joint confessional. Meanwhile, the mom of one added, “I want this trip to be, you know, nice trip. I don’t want you to cause any trouble.”

“I know how to drive. You’re a backseat driver. You complain about my driving, but you never want to drive,” the bodybuilder told producers. “But I just got to Brazil, and your dad’s already calling me names. I don’t know why your dad is calling me a ‘little bastard.’”
