CAIRO, GEORGIA: Moriah Plath, known as the family rebel on TLC’s ‘Welcome to Plathville,’ is making waves in Season 5 of the show. She has been acting out against her parents, Kim and Barry Plath, as she rebels against the rigid rules she was raised with. Moriah’s Instagram reveals that she is currently living in a new apartment with her adopted puppy, which she got in 2022.
In ‘Welcome to Plathville’ Season 5, Moriah has made significant changes. However, in the sneak peek for the upcoming episode, her brother Ethan Plath blames her and accuses her of blocking him. Ethan expresses his frustration in the preview for the September 19 episode, claiming that he has encountered his father and brother, Micah, a couple of times. He believes that his family has alienated his wife and only wants to deal with him, which frustrates him.
Moriah is the person that Ethan claims to have the biggest problems with. This is particularly hurtful to Ethan because they were once very close. He reveals that both he and his wife Olivia went out of their way to help Moriah but feel betrayed by her actions.
Ethan also reveals that Moriah has cut off contact with him by blocking his number, making it difficult for him to reach out to her. She had a strong relationship with Ethan and Olivia while living with them. However, Moriah was kicked out of the family home by her parents in Season 2. Olivia, too, rebelled against the Plaths and was accused of ‘corrupting’ Ethan with her modern outlook on life, which initially attracted Moriah to her as well. All four, Moriah, Ethan, Olivia, and Olivia’s brother Nathan Meggs, shared a house. But Moriah decided to leave Olivia and Ethan after spending a considerable amount of time with them, as shown in Season 5.
Moriah’s sudden departure shocked both Ethan and Olivia. While it’s uncertain what Moriah’s next move will be, it seems that she wants to be closer to her parents and siblings in Georgia now. She currently lives in a new apartment with her puppy.
Apart from her appearances on ‘Welcome to Plathville,’ Moriah also has other career pursuits. In 2022, she revealed on Instagram that she had graduated from bartending school. She expressed her enjoyment of taking the course, saying that even though she wasn’t the quickest learner, the bartending school made sure she became confident in her skills within a few weeks. Alongside bartending, Moriah mentioned that she is also pursuing other educational goals.
While Moriah has tried to repair her relationship with her parents in ‘Welcome to Plathville’ Season 5, it indicates that she is willing to distance herself from Olivia. Olivia previously accused Kim of using Ethan’s credit card, but Moriah seems skeptical of the claims. In the Season 5 trailer, there is a scene where Barry immerses Moriah’s head in water, indicating that she wants nothing to do with Olivia anymore. Moriah expresses a desire to let go of the mistakes she has made in the past and move forward.
As for Moriah’s dating life, she is currently single. In the second season of ‘Welcome to Plathville,’ Moriah was in a relationship with her ex-boyfriend Max Kallschmidt. However, the couple went through a painful breakup, and Moriah has no intentions of changing her relationship status anytime soon. Max has since announced his engagement to another woman.
In conclusion, Moriah Plath’s journey in ‘Welcome to Plathville’ Season 5 has been filled with ups and downs. She has rebelled against her parents’ strict rules and has distanced herself from her brother Ethan and sister-in-law Olivia. Moriah is now living in her own apartment with her adopted puppy, pursuing a career in bartending, and focusing on her own personal growth.
