90 Day Fiance: Are Patrick Mendes And Thais Ramone Still Together?
Yes, Patrick and Thais are still together as of 2022. The two often shared adorable pictures of themselves and proudly flaunted their relationship status over their respective IG bio — Patrick wrote, “Engaged to @tharamoniee” while Thais wrote, “fiancee of @buffmendes”
This also means that the two have managed to reach a mutual understanding. Well, since it was mostly from Patrick’s side, it’s possible that he’s changed his lifestyle.
For those who don’t know, let us go back to the start. It all began when Patrick traveled to Brazil in late 2019, hoping to reconnect with his relatives, but he didn’t know Portuguese. So, in order to meet new people and learn the local language at the same time, Patrick signed up for a dating app. And that’s how he met Thais Ramone.
It was almost love at first sight for Patrick. He recalled that he never met anyone as beautiful as Thais ever in his life. Likewise, Thais was enchanted by Patrick in the same way. So, the duo went on to date for a while until Patrick had to return to the States.
However, Patrick wasn’t giving up on his love so easily. He kept on returning to Brazil, often showering her with lavish presents. Finally, one day, he proposed and she said “Yes”.
So, after getting engaged the lovebirds then returned to the US (with Thais on the K-1 visa). And there arose their biggest hurdle. At the time, Patrick was still living with his brother, which Thais didn’t like at all. Ultimately, this put Patrick in a dilemma where he was forced to choose between his fiancee and his brother.
Another biggest problem then was that Patrick still had some unresolved issues surrounding his ex. So, it was natural for Thais to feel threatened.

But this isn’t where Patrick’s passion lies. In fact, he started his career as an all-state football and later turned into the life of weight lifting. To be precise, it was 2008 when Patrick started his Olympic Weightlifting training with the mindset to become the best. And just within three years of training, he became America’s super-heavyweight USA national champion in 2011 and 2012.
Unfortunately, on March 19, 2012, he was found using human growth hormone and suspended by the United States Anti-Doping Agency for two years. Patrick then returned to the platform in 2014 to compete as a Brasilian and won the Brasilian National Championship. But again the next years, he tested positive for the use of the banned substance for the second time at the 2015 Pan Am Games.
Well, this is all in the past now. Today, besides his job and his time as a reality star, Patrick makes a few bucks talking requests over Cameo @buffmendes.
