90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days has focused on a variety of couples with communication and relationship issues. Ash Naeck and Avery Warner are among them.
Warner traveled to Melbourne, Australia, to visit Naeck and determine if they could build a strong relationship. Naeck, a relationship coach, allowed Warner to sit in on a coaching seminar he held.
As many fans can attest, Naeck’s seminar did not go well. Warner, Naeck’s audience, and viewers agreed that the seminar seemed very sexist. In addition, the content of Naeck’s seminar may have been stolen and uncredited.
As was seen on the episode of 90 Day Fiance featuring the episode, the seminar did not go well for Naeck, and his audience was largely disappointed and offended.
During the seminar, Naeck expressed outdated, stereotypical ideas about the brains of men and women. A member of the audience asked a question about masculinity and femininity, and Naeck could not handle it. At one point, he left the room to collect himself.
Warner, who was also in attendance, said that the room was very tense. In the episode itself, Warner says that the seminar made Naeck appear sexist, which is not something she had seen from him before.
A reddit user was able to pinpoint a very similar seminar once given by Mike Gungor. The content was essentially the same but much older.
The seminar focused a lot on the alleged differences between male and female brains. Naeck pushed the idea that women cannot understand how men think. He says that women have interlinking thoughts where “everything is going crazy,” and men do not.
Both Gungor and Naeck used the metaphor of boxes in men’s brains that contain thoughts. They also both mention fishing as an activity that men enjoy because it allows them to do nothing.
In addition to being potentially stolen, the content of the seminar was deemed offensive by many viewers. It contained no new, helpful content and simply relied on sexist ideas of men and women’s brains. The video Naeck allegedly took material from was also older, perhaps even from the 1990s.
All of this means that Naeck was looking for information from outdated marriage counselors and preachers that don’t necessarily acknowledge the way people interact and communicate today. Even if the material was not stolen, it simply didn’t connect with the women in the audience looking for Mr. Right.
So, what does all of this mean for Warner and Naeck now? Are they still together?
Warner took to Instagram to defend Naeck’s teaching style. Warner said that Naeck is very intelligent but doesn’t express himself the way he intends to. She also clarified that the event was free.
Warner and Naeck do not have any recent photos together on Instagram, and neither has given a status update on their relationship. It is hard to tell if they are still together or if Warner is still simply supportive of her ex.
