Work hard to play hard! 90 Day Fiancé star Patrick Mendes has a healthy net worth, thanks to his high-paying job. But when his long-distance fiancé, Thais Ramone, moved from her native country of Brazil to the United States on the K-1 visa, he quickly noticed that his finances were stretched thin as he had to financially support his bride-to-be. The couple then expanded their family with a daughter in November 2022 after tying the knot earlier that year.

How Does ’90 Day Fiancé’ Star Patrick Mendes Make His Money?

As In Touch previously reported, Patrick had a successful career as a professional weight lifter and he even trained for the Olympics. However, his career was cut short after he tested positive for banned substances twice in a row.

“After my weight lifting career was over, I moved to Texas and started working in sales. I am now selling home security door to door and I manage sales teams throughout Texas,” the Massachusetts native explained in his confessional. “I’ve had a ton of success in my door to door career, but ever since I met Thais, I put her first so I’ve been to Brazil 14 times, two weeks at a time. Every time I go there and I’m not working, I’m losing basically $1,000 a day. So, you know, that’s a big hit.”

Why Did ’90 Day Fiancé’ Star Patrick Mendes and Thais Ramone Fight Over Money?

When Thais arrived in America, she settled into Patrick’s old house in Austin. However, just weeks after her arrival, the couple picked up and moved to Dallas for Patrick’s work. Once they arrived in Dallas, Thais was quick to express her disappointment in the Dallas house and she felt it was smaller than the one in Austin.

“I don’t have any patience if Thais is dissatisfied with the house. Like, zero,” Patrick said in a confessional. “I grew up in a trailer park. And it was with six people, which means like everyone was sharing bedrooms. Coming from that perspective, like, it just pisses me off. And it’s a huge red flag for me. It’s you know, almost a million dollar house!”

On the June 19, 2022, episode, Thais was still not settling well to their new space so Patrick took her to a local furniture store to pick out decorations to make the house feel like home. However, the couple clashed over finances when Thais started picking out items with hefty price tags.

“Thais has a valid point about making the house more hers. I want her to feel comfortable, but I’ve never been big on things like decorations on the house and random things just hanging on the wall. I think it’s just cause like, I grew up poor. You definitely don’t buy decorations when you’re poor, you buy food.”

Patrick claimed that he had “already spent like $10,000” on Thais since she arrived to America. “I guess I’m getting cold feet wasting money on decor when you being here has increased my cost of living tremendously, plus having to pay for a wedding in the next couple of months,” Patrick said. “It’s just a lot.”

After leaving the store with a $40 vase, the couple got into a tense fight once they returned home. Thais revealed that Patrick has never revealed to her how much he makes or how much money he has in the bank. “I make enough,” Patrick explained. “It fluctuates.”

Patrick told Thais that he would be more open with her about his finances once they become husband and wife. They continued to fight and Patrick threw cash and his credit card at Thais so she could go back to the furniture store and buy the items she wanted, which led her to walk away from him.

“It practically made me think and realize that my father is right,” Thais said in her confessional. “He thinks that Americans just want to take advantage of Brazilian women, that they want to buy us with money and [Patrick’s] behavior is making me worried. That’s not how a man should treat a woman. That’s not respectful.”

Patrick and Thais Returned for ‘90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?’ Season 8

Patrick and Thais tied the knot in February 2022 and welcomed daughter Aleesi on November 16, 2022. The couple then returned to reality TV to document their newlywed life on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Season 8, which premiered in March 2024. They first appeared in episode 5 on April 14, 2024, featuring some tension with Patrick’s brother, John McManus.

Patrick and Thais planned to visit Brazil for the first time since the South America native’s move to the U.S., hoping that it would give her father a chance to bond with her husband. However, John drove a wedge into the plan when he invited himself on the trip.

“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, while Thais added, “I want this trip to be, you know, nice trip. I don’t want you to cause any trouble.”

Even before John’s arrival in Brazil, the drama was starting to heat up between Patrick and Carlos, as Thais’ dad called him a “little bastard” after Thais complained about the Texas native’s driving.

“I know how to drive. You’re a backseat driver. You complain about my driving, but you never want to drive,” Patrick vented. “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.’”
