Charlie and Megan Potthast have cemented their status as 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? villains, and some viewers have speculated that the two of them were always bullies after a high school prom photo of the couple emerged. Charlie has made a name for himself in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise by constantly targeting his sister Libby’s husband, Andrei Castravet. Now involved in conflict with Charlie’s family, Charlie and Megan surprised viewers with an unearthed photo of the two of them taken many years ago.
While the Potthast siblings have historically been against Andrei at the expense of father Chuck Potthast’s feelings, sisters Becky and Jenn were the leading villains for the latter half of Happily Ever After. However, Charlie made a disgraceful comeback during the season finale by arriving at a family gathering visibly intoxicated and verbally attacking Andrei before engaging in a physical fight with his brother-in-law. Meanwhile, Megan allegedly scratched Libby, as the entire scene broke out into chaos. Despite their chronically bad behavior, Charlie and Megan recently revealed that they count Jovi Dufren and Yara Zaya as close franchise friends.
One fan shared an old photo of Charlie and Megan at prom to Reddit. “Charlie and his wife look like they peaked in high school,” the fan wrote. The image featured the duo in their younger days, as they are high school sweethearts. Some commenters argued that “Charlie has never peaked,” given the way he acts on the show. Many viewers find him to be surprisingly similar to Andrei, as both men are noted for their tempers and entitlement. However, viewers find that Charlie is envious of Andrei and feels threatened by the Moldovan man working in the Potthast family business because it could jeopardize Charlie’s place in the company. Becky and Jenn are frequently accused of being threatened by Andrei as well, since the two sisters admitted that they are focused on their own financial gain above all.
A number of commenters observed that Charlie and Megan, who are noted for their aggression, appeared as though they were unkind in high school as well. “They both look like they were the high school bullies,” one fan wrote. Past commenters deemed Charlie the physical embodiment of an ’80s movie bully after he wore a sweater tied around his neck during the chaotic Potthast family yacht fistfight that occurred earlier in the season. Many viewers dislike Charlie and Megan, as Charlie is constantly antagonizing Andrei and the couple clearly arrived with the intention of causing trouble during the scene shown in the Happily Ever After finale. “I’m so glad that, with everything this sub disagrees on, we can all come together to hate Charlie and his wife,” another commenter wrote.
Though they are frequently called out by fans, Andrei and Libby do have the strongest relationship out of the Happily Ever After season 6 cast. While drama within the Potthast family created a divide among the siblings that greatly upset family patriarch Chuck, viewers have speculated that the sisters scripted their drama in the hope to land their own spin-off show. However, many viewers believe that Charlie’s hatred for Andrei is very much real. Charlie’s intense dislike for his brother-in-law is visible to audiences, cementing Charlie as a 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? villain due to his aggressive behavior.
