Why Natalie Mordovtseva's Cooking Videos Have 90 Day Fiancé Fans Concerned

TLC has a reputation for bringing us some of the most captivating, binge-worthy reality shows on TV, and 90 Day Fiancé (and the series' many spin-offs) has been a network-favorite ever since its debut in 2014. Currently, the show is in its eighth season, and there's been no shortage of drama between the four new and three returning couples as they navigate their relationships in the middle of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva, who appeared on season 7 of the show and returned for season 8, got engaged in Paris during their second in-person meeting after being introduced to one another by their friends online. Mike and Natalie's relationship has had its fair share of ups and downs this season, and after Mike admitted to the couple's therapist that he didn't want to marry Natalie, fans began to question whether or not the couple was really in it for the long run (via Screen Rant).

Natalie's cooking videos have raised questions

While fans have had a lot to say about Natalie Mordovtseva's cooking videos (via YouTube), which feature dishes like "Italian pasta and shrimp" and "salmon with salad," they couldn't help but notice that the kitchen Natalie is cooking in is different from Mike's kitchen, which sparked concern about whether or not the couple is still together. "That's not Mike's kitchen," one concerned fan wrote on Natalie's Instagram post teasing her new cooking vid, while another wrote, "Yess you left Mike good for you!! He was gaslighting you." Not only that, the fact that Natalie was wearing a shirt that reads, "My dog is my valentine," added to fans' concerns.

While 90 Day fans seem to be genuinely concerned about the status of Mike and Natalie's relationship — especially given the drama they've gone through so far this season — others pointed out that the show was filmed sometime last year, and viewers are just now seeing their problems unfold. Furthermore, Mike and Natalie's marriage announcement was in his local paper in March 2020 (via SoapDirt), and it's very likely that they're still married, and just moved into a new house.

Regardless of Mike and Natalie's relationship status, which will continue to unfold on-screen, one thing seems certain: fans can't get enough of Natalie's YouTube cooking channel, as she has tens of thousands of views on each video.
