TLC’s 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days season 5 was all about seven new couples who were ready to take their long-distance relationships to the next level. While some participants that season had already been in and out of a few marriages, the others were single for the most of their lives — and Mike Berk was one of them.
This Mike Berk Bio explores everything you need to know about him.
90 Day Fiance Mike Berk And Ximena Morales Cuellar’s Relationship
Mike Berk first met the Colombian single mother of two, Ximena Morales Cuellar on an international dating app in early 2020. Though Ximena spoke no English and Mike only spoke half a Spanish, the two bonded well with the help of a translator app.
Also, it was around that time, Mike applied for the casting of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. Later, as he received a confirmation call, his friends told him that he was “crazy”, and everyone reminded him about how “people are always looking out for money and things like that.”
Ximena is “definitely not like that,” Mike insisted. He fell in love with her “her personality,” and the pair were already planning a wedding and kids.
The last saw him, Mike was planning to propose and bring Ximena and her sons to the U.S.
So, will Mike and Ximena end up together? Well, given the language barrier, and other obstacles like closed borders and travel restrictions, it’s a hard fight for them. Also, there’s a question, if Ximena was more in love with the gifts and money, or with Mike himself.
But whatever the outcome may be. Mike was determined to meet Ximena and make it work. “If you know the person is for you, ignore all the haters and just be you,” he shared.
As of 2021, the pair were still together.
