Olga and Steven Frend to 90 Day Fiance Fans: Pay Our Rent!

by at .

After 90 Day Fiance fans saved Danielle Mullins' house, other cast members of the reality show that even controversial stars can get a little help.

Now, Steven Frend and Olga Kolshimbetova are hoping that fans are in the giving spirit.

They need help supporting themselves and baby Alex, and they're asking for $15,000.

"Drastic times call for drastic measures,” Steven Frend begins as he shares his GoFundMe page.

“Trying my hardest to get my life on the right track," he says. "And I feel as if I’m doing a great job."

Look, we know that Steven is controversial with good reason with viewers, but it's worth it to read his whole post.

"But we face certain hardships;" Steven admits. "Olga will be unable to work for an extensive period of time."

That leaves him as the breadwinner, but as he explains, he can only win so much bread at the moment.

"As for myself," Steven says. "I just landed a job opportunity as a Fire Sprinkler Installer (Apprenticeship Program) the training is 4 years long."

"Starting out at $16 an hour isn’t the best," he admits. "But in the long run it’ll do us okay."

Some people would (not literally) kill for $16 an hour, but cost of living is no joke, especially when you're supporting a family.

"I’ll get a raise every 6 months depending or how hard I work at this job," Steven shares. "(Monday – Friday 7am – 5pm)."

"Currently i have registered for college," he adds. "And will fit my classes in with my work schedule, as this field will not be my career."

He may find that he doesn't get the raises he's hoping for from any bosses who read that declaration. Maybe not.

"But," Steven says. "School takes 8 years in the field I want."

"After apprenticeship," he shares. "I’ll be making $30-$35 an hour and that’s good for the age of 24."

"But $16 an hour isn’t enough to support a family of 3 as well as taking care of home bills, gas, etc,” he laments.

We all have bills to pay, but those bills get higher depending upon where you live.

“I’m very nervous on how things will play out," Steven says. "But I have faith god will take matters into his own hands."

Some might accuse him of including that line to goad especially devout fans into donating, but it's a very reasonable expression of faith.

"I’m not asking for a lot," Steven points out.

Some may be taken aback, but considering that We The People WIll Fund The Wall has raised over $16 million on that same sight in a week, he's right.

Of course, he's unlikely to attract the attention of the same number of rich racists. 

"In a matter of fact," Steven admits. "I feel ashamed having to make this campaign."

"But," he continues. "I must do what is best to support my family."

Sometimes, doing the right thing for your child means swallowing your pride and humbling yourself before the masses.

"Thank you for your consideration," Steven says. "And have a happy holiday."

Steven and Olga have two updates on their GoFundMe. First, Steven informs doubters that yes, money really is tight.

"I live in Montgomery county, Maryland," Steven says, adding that it's the "most expensive county in Maryland."

Then he breaks down their expenses.

"Bills - Rent (Average rent a month on this county $2,000 a month, Utilities, Car insurance, Gas, Food, Diapers and clothes for our son," he begins.

"Student LOANS since people think I have an advantage to college. It’s community college and hopefully I’ll be able to transfer," he says.

"I can work my ass off my wife and I do," Steven affirms. "But I want time with my wife and son."

"No matter how much money you make in life, you’ll regret all the time you didn’t spend with you family because you were to busy focusing on paper," he notes.

Steven reminds fans: "I’m trying my best but I still need to be there for my family."

90 Day Fiance: Steven and Olga GoFundMe Money 24 December

This was their progress as of Monday morning, December 24.

"The page is doing better we hoped," Steven shares in a second update.

"We made a mutual agreement and to ensure you guys are donating for a good cause," he says.

"We are going to open a second account in my bank and put all of this money in the bank for Alex and everything he needs," he reveals.

"We will not be spending this on our personal selfs!" he announces. "We appreciate every single one of you who are helping give our family a small head start!"

"If you would like a personalized video from us both or only one of us just make an attempt to contact us," he adds.

Cameos are really popular with 90 Day Fiance stars this season. Clearly Danielle isn't the only star they're hoping to emulate.

"Thank you all," he says. "And have a lovely Christmas and New Years from the Frend family"

90 Day Fiance: Olga and Steven Hold Hands

Olga has used sweet posts on Instagram, like this photo, to soften her husband's image to 90 Day Fiance viewers.

Steven and Olga haven't had the best experience as reality stars.

While it seems likely that Colt and Larissa will take the crown as this season's most horrible couple, viewers really, really don't like Steven.

The way that he speaks to Olga, regardless of editing, is unacceptable under any circumstances.

While he has been upfront about admitting that he grew up in a toxic household, he has a lot to unlearn.

21 is a very young age at which to become a father, especially if one does not intend to repeat one's family's mistakes.

Still, if fans want to help Olga, then they may want to donate to this fund.

90 Day Fiance stars are just not paid enough.
