’90 Day Fiance’ Fans are Thrilled Varya Malina Got Out of Her Relationship With Geoffrey Paschel
Fans of 90 Day Fiancé have plenty of drama to discuss this season. The documentary/reality series has been around for years but has really ramped up in recent years, with multiple spinoffs and lots of online discussions. One of the most popular spinoffs is 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, which is currently in its fourth season. On this season, one particular couple that has earned a lot of buzz is Varya Malina, a Russian woman, and Geoffrey Paschel, a man from Tennessee.
What is 90 Day Fiancé about?
90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days first premiered in the summer of 2017. The show’s setup is a bit of a prequel to the original 90 Day Fiancé, focusing on couples who have established international relationships but who have not yet met their other half in person. The show chronicles the adventures that ensue when the American half of the couple travels to their partner’s home country, to meet in person and decide if the relationship is solid enough to progress. If the couple decides not to move forward, they call off the process of applying for the K-1 visa.
90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days has quickly gained traction with fans, and the show has almost eclipsed the original in popularity. The fourth season has been especially rife with drama, with six new couples that inspired a lot of fan reactions, both positive and negative.
Varya Malina and Geoffrey Paschel were a controversial couple
Geoffrey Paschel and Varya Malina were quite possibly the most talked-about couple in the fourth season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. Paschel, hailing from Tennessee, and Malina, from Russia, were considered to be problematic from the start. Their personalities never really meshed, even from the very first moment that Paschel met Malina in her home country of Russia.
As the season progressed, fans began to learn more about Paschel’s checkered past, including his criminal history. Not only was Paschel revealed to have a history of violence against women, but he also concealed possible drug charges. In fact, sources stated that Paschel previously waived arraignment on charges of aggravated kidnapping, domestic assault, and interference with an emergency call. With such a checkered past, it is no wonder that Malina began to question a future with Paschel. In addition to Malina’s uncertainly, fans began to seriously call into question the integrity of the show, to feature someone with such a problematic history.
Fans reacted online to Varya Malina and Geoffrey Paschel’s breakup
As it turned out, fans needn’t have worried too much. Paschel did, in fact, propose to Malina, but she turned him down, admitting that she would prefer to take things slowly. In response, Paschel seemed to ice Malina out, turning his attentions to another woman named Mary. Ultimately, Malina was the only one who emerged from the relationship in a positive light. Fans online reacted to Paschel and Malina’s breakup with humor and relief, telling Malina in a Twitter thread that she definitely “dodged a bullet.”
Other fans called out Paschel’s shady past and suspect personality, stating that he is clearly a narcissist and that he has “deep-rooted issues.” In fact, Paschel had no defenders at all and could have a very tough time rebounding from the unfortunate way that he appeared on the show. Still, he has remained active on social media, posting ads for protein bars and seemingly oblivious to the swarm of negative press that he has received. For fans of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, this chapter involving Geoffrey Paschel is one that they are happy to close.
