Reality TV crossover couple! 90 Day Fiancé personality Mike Youngquist and reality star Marcia “Brazil” Alves, best known for her appearance on Rock of Love Bus, ignited dating rumors after his split from estranged wife Natalie Mordovtseva. Keep reading to find out everything we know about Mike and Marcia’s current relationship status.
Who Is Marcia Brazil?
Rock of Love Bus viewers may remember Marcia from the third season of Bret Michaels’ dating show, during which 20 bachelorettes went on a tour bus to see if they could keep up with the Poison musician’s lifestyle and win his affections.
After being eliminated in the fourth episode, Marcia went on to compete on other VH1 shows Charm School and I Love Money.
Why Did Fans Think Mike and Marcia Are Dating?
The relationship rumors sparked in September 2021 after Marcia shared a new photo with the Happily Ever After? cozying up for a selfie while getting into some “shenanigans” at Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa. The VH1 alum used the Instagram hashtags “sweetheart” and an “amazing dude” in her photo to describe the Washington native.
Days later, the duo later posed for another set of photos together while taking a dip in a pool. “Sunday funday with my favorite people #bigmike90dayfiance #90dayfiance #sweetestguy #bigheart #greattimes,” she wrote alongside the portraits of them smiling and laughing tagged in Henderson, Nevada.
In August 2022, the brunette beauty shared another photo with her “sushi hero” at dinner. “Can’t live without it. Best sushi in town,” she wrote alongside a smiling selfie with the HEA alum. In the comment section, fellow 90 Day Fiance alum Larissa Dos Santos Lima added more speculation to the rumored flames, writing, “Beautiful couple” under the photo.
Are Mike and Marcia Dating?
On August 26, In Touch exclusively confirmed that the Sequim, Washington, native is dating the VH1 alum.
“[Mike and Marcia] are seeing each other,” a source exclusively told In Touch.
Howard “Howie” Wood, who represents both Marcia and Mike, exclusively told In Touch at the time, “I can only say that Mike and Marcia enjoy the time they spend together. They are both my clients, Marcia since the Rock of Love days and coincidentally, Mike is also a client. They both are extremely busy professionally and when they have the time to see each other, they do.”
As of December 2022, the couple are still together, with Wood telling In Touch exclusively, “Mike and Marcia [are] still going strong and spending lots of time together.”
Did Natalie and Mike Break Up?
Fans have been questioning if Mike and Marcia are a couple after his Uncle Beau Lawrence confirmed to In Touch exclusively that Mike and Natalie separated in March 2021 following less than a year of marriage. As of publication, In Touch can confirm there has not been any divorce filing for the season 6 HEA? stars.
Although the TLC couple parted ways romantically, Natalie had been residing in Florida. The Ukraine native went on to document her journey to find love on season 2 of The Single Life. While the blonde beauty didn’t find her Mr. Right the first time around, she’s back for season 3. The series is set to document her as she continues to be unlucky in love — leading her to Mike’s front door with flowers.
The 90 Day Fiancé couple previously sparked reconciliation rumors after Natalie took to Instagram in May to share a photo of her and what seemed to be the dog that she and Mike previously adopted together. On August 23, she further ignited the rumors after she shared a throwback picture with Mike.
“Are you back together?” a fan asked Natalie after seeing the loved-up picture of the former couple. “[Maybe] we never parted … [woman shrugging emoji],” the TLC personality responded.
As for the reason Mike’s estranged wife has been dropping hints she reunited with her ex, the insider stated, “I have no idea why Natalie is posting old photos of them together.”
“Seems like she only does that when she sees that [Mike and Marcia] are together,” the source continued. “All I can say is that he is not with [Natalie].”
