These days, the spinoffs come so thick and fast, that fans really struggle to keep up with all the names and faces. So, in case you missed it, Patrick met Thaís on a dating app. They look quite solid together, and they met up a few times. After he proposed to her, she obtained a visa to move to Dallas, Texas. Well, he got busted for doping, so is he really as trustworthy as he seems?
90 Day Fiance fans met a guy who seemed on the surface of things to be an okay person. At least, that was the situation before Geoffrey Paschel’s pending assault case emerged. So, fans don’t really know from the outset that people who look good will turn out that way. Unlike Geoffrey, Patrick probably won’t be jailed for getting busted, but it has affected his career.

The 90 Day Fiance star changed from the USA team to the Brazilian one. So, he next appeared at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto. Placed 4th, he was unfortunately busted after testing positive for using testosterone. Clearly, he learned nothing from his first two-year ban.
