TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé-Happily Ever After” star Andrei Castravet, who once was teased over his career as a “house husband” is now gainfully employed as a real estate agent after completing a 60-hour course!
Season Five Focused On Andrei’s Inability To Work, Leaving Elizabeth Castravet As The Breadwinner
Season five of the show seemed to focus a lot on Andrei’s staying home to clean the house and care for the couple’s baby girl Eleanor while Elizabeth Castravet appeared to be the breadwinner. Sometimes things became tense between them when Elizabeth felt a little overwhelmed, but for the most part, she supported Andrei although her family had a lot of criticisms. To some, their marriage appeared to be in trouble. Viewers learned that Andrei had not been upfront about his police career in Moldova and that he left what Chuck, Charlie, and Jenn Potthast Davis considered a high paying career as a detective.
That didn’t make any sense to them, especially when combined with the fact that Andrei left Moldova and became a bouncer in a bar in Ireland, which is where Elizabeth and he met. Once he and Elizabeth married and he was in the United States, he tried to find work as a handyman and a truck driver, none of which panned out. So he decided to stay home with the baby and keep the house while Elizabeth worked. During a heated argument on one of the later episodes in the season, she told him she could tell he was miserable staying at home and now Ellie is old enough to stay in daycare or with Elizabeth’s mom or one of her sisters.
Andrei Decided On Real Estate As A Career
It has now been revealed that Andrei decided on real estate as a career. A “90 Day Fiancé” fan account, “Frauded By TLC” recently posted a snapshot of Andrei’s real estate license, active from April 6, 2020, through March 31, 2022. Although it may have started slowly, given the pandemic and quarantining restrictions, Florida was one of the first states to relax the rules. Andrei would have the option of showing houses virtually if the prospective buyer wasn’t comfortable with in-person showings.
The poster went on to explain that Florida has a sixty-hour course to get a real estate license, with a grueling test which he apparently passed. The poster also wrote about it being the same for attorneys trying to get licensing there. They get so many snowbirds (people who live in colder states in the summer then move to a home in a warmer state in the winter) that the state of Florida is trying to prevent mass oversaturation.
One fan concurred that Florida is one of the most difficult states to get a real estate license in and another who is an agent in Florida verified that it wasn’t easy to get the license or to pass the test! Andrei is employed by the same realty company as his sister-in-law Becky Potthast Lichtwerst. They are both employed by Keller Williams Realty in Tampa, Florida although they appear to be at different offices. Perhaps a crossover to HGTV may be in order?
