TLC.com checked in again with Russ and Paola to find out where they are now, after nearly a year of marriage. Watch their love journey unfold in this Best of Russ and Paola video playlist.

TLC.com: Who's the better cook in your relationship?

Russ: Depends on the meal. If it is pancakes, that's all me. If it is anything else, it's Pao. Pao decided to become a vegetarian, creating a twist in her previous (and delicious) cooking style.

TLC.com: What's your favorite meal or dish? Do you prefer home-cooked food or going out to restaurants?

Russ: My favorite dish ever since I was a kid has been chocolate gravy. My mom made it for breakfast. It's basically biscuits and gravy, but the gravy is chocolaty. I have the recipe, but I have not yet convinced Pao to make it for me because I am normally the one in charge of cooking breakfast.

Paola: The veggie burger has become one of my favorite dishes and most definitely a guilty pleasure. I have found a delicious veggie burger at a local restaurant near our house on the lake.

TLC.com: What's something surprising you've learned about your spouse?

Russ: Pao is a very determined person and is always thinking of ways to better herself and others.

Paola: How supportive and patient Russ is in any situation. He believes in me more than anyone else.

TLC.com: What time do you go to bed and wake up in the morning?

Russ: If I am working, we are typically in bed no later than 10 pm. If it is not a work night and we are relaxing with a movie or TV on, I admit that I usually pass out by 9 or 10 pm.

Paola: It all depends on Russ' schedule and if I have class or work the next day, but I am definitely a night person.

TLC.com: What is the first thing you say to each other when you see each other at the end of the day?

Russ and Paola: "Te amo" is always the first thing we say to each other at the end of the day.

TLC.com: What's your favorite thing to do as a couple? Any new hobbies?

Russ and Paola: We enjoy going to the gym and staying active as a couple. Our favorite thing to do together is travel and experience new things.

TLC.com: What is your best piece of advice for solving an argument?

Russ and Paola: Take a deep breath and give each other some time to settle your frustration and decide if this argument is really worth the fight.

TLC.com: Would you describe yourselves as homebodies or a couple out on the town?

Russ: Pao is most definitely a homebody, which has rubbed off on me, but we always enjoy a night out on the town to get away from the monotony.

TLC.com: In five years, do you see yourselves living in the same city? If not, where would you move?

Russ and Paola: No, we do not see ourselves living in Oklahoma City. We see ourselves traveling around the world and eventually living in another country.

TLC.com: What is one way you honor both of your cultures at home?

Russ and Paola: We speak both of our native languages and eat our favorite traditional meals. Lastly, we celebrate the holidays and special calendar events from both countries.

TLC.com: What three words best describe your marriage?

Russ and Paola: faithful, love, crazy
