Andrei and Libby Castravet have received a cold reception from 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? viewers and Libby’s claims that Andrei is simply an “alpha male” have similarly not been well-received. The couple returned for season 6 of the 90 Day Fiancé spin-off show even though viewers are widely tired of watching the couple argue with the Potthast family season after season. Libby recently tried to justify Andrei’s attitude by calling it alpha male energy, but franchise fans haven’t been shy about calling out her excuses for why her husband is rude.
Libby and Andrei are often at odds with her family. The season 6 drama continued the couple’s season 5 issues as Libby’s brother Charlie still despises Andrei. To complicate things further, her father Chuck recently mandated that Charlie will be the one to show Andrei around the Potthast family business. This decision came after Andrei’s request for a $100,000 loan from his father-in-law was rejected. Andrei was widely mocked for his bold request, but viewers have also uncovered the rude way he talks to his wife and her family. Russian-speaking viewers translated the curse words Andrew frequently mutters to reveal his shockingly vulgar language to franchise fans.

With Andrei receiving criticism, his wife Libby has tried to justify her husband’s persona by claiming he is an “alpha male.” One viewer took to Reddit to voice their issues with Libby’s feelings. “I cannot stand it when Libby refers to Andrei as an ‘Alpha male’ and uses that as a reason to excuse his s****y behavior,” the user started their post. They went on to explain that an “alpha male” is not someone who is “arrogant,” “aggressive” or an “a*****e.” They also said that Andrei was in no way an alpha. “He doesn’t have a job, he keeps bouncing around careers, his wife completely supports him financially and in turn, her family supports her financially yet he treats her family like crap,” the user pointed out. They added that Andrei has been begging his in-laws for money and work and cannot appear to make it on his own. “Libby at least be real with yourself and recognize there is nothing ‘Alpha’ in your husband,” the user concluded their post.
Many commenters agreed that Libby appears to be misusing the term. “I think you’re right – she doesn’t know what an ‘Alpha male’ is. She sees someone who acts like they’re ‘the s**t’ and says, Well I guess he’s an Alpha!” one person wrote. They also suggested that Libby might be relying on her delusion to cope with Andrei’s failures in the relationship. “She is completely lacking in self awareness. She instigates most of the drama by s**t talking him to her family and her family to Andrei. She pits them against each other then cries about it when it works,” another person observed. “If you read online what an alpha male is, I can guarantee you that you won’t think of Andrei.” Many agreed with what was being said. “Just cause a guy is a d**k does not mean he is an ‘alpha’. He’s just a d**k,” another user weighed in.
Overall, viewers don’t think that any excuse justifies the way Andrei behaves. His entitled, arrogant and lazy attitude has caused franchise fans to dislike him since he first appeared in season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé. However, Andrei, Libby and Libby’s family continue to receive a platform on TLC. The couple even won 90 Day Fiancé: Love Games before joining the cast of season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? However, the couple has been heavily criticized for many reasons, including the way the entire family shamelessly mooches off of Chuck.
