’90 Day Fiancé’: Geoffrey Paschel Explains Absence From Tell-All

90 Day Fiancé fans were surprised when Geoffrey Paschel’s erstwhile love, Varya, showed up to visit Paschel despite their seeming split. To make matters more suspicious, Paschel was notably absent during the tell-all. Paschel has a checkered past when it comes to criminal history, with accusations of abuse against him. Some fans were wondering if that had anything to do with his absence. Now, Paschel is dishing on what went down — at least, according to him. 

Was Varya showing up staged?

90 Day Fiancé star Geoffrey Paschel knows fans think that Varya showing up was a scripted event. However, Paschel claims that’s not the case at all. He says he was just as surprised as the viewers when he saw her. 

During an interview with Domenick Nati, Paschel explained, “This was a complete surprise, one-hundred percent, I hear people saying, ‘This was so staged, this was so fake.’ Completely, I was caught in the moment, you saw my sh*t-eating grin on. I was like, I didn’t know what to do.”

“It was completely in that moment and Mary was still at my house from the night before, so,” laughed Paschel. 

“So the doorbell rang, and I thought it was production cause they were gonna film some b-roll or whatever. The thing about it is, they had no idea Mary was there. They had zero idea. So there was no communication in that because they were tending to Varya, bringing Varya out, filming Varya,” explained Paschel.

Today was supposed to be my hearing date for the June 2019 allegations. Unfortunately, it has once again been delayed due to the pandemic. I have been very eager to go and reveal the truth surrounding the evidence in question. I have continually requested the earliest possible dates every time so that I expeditiously clear my name. I have been forced to hide under a rock and told that the “hate will just go away” if I ignored it. That is not me, and I can’t take constant accusations from people, whilst I lie in silence, any longer. . These claims are the main reason I’ve been lambasted with such vitriol. I can assure you, if any of these fables were true, I would bow out and accept responsibility. Not all is as it seems. I have been held back from defending myself, but the time has come that I stand up to the incredulous and contrived conditions that keep compounding due to the viral spread of sensationalized opinions and lazy, one sided, internet reporting—meant only for clickbait. There are unscrupulous intentions behind this endeavor to defame me and it is due to the custody situations I am currently in. Consequently, the only way for the actual truth to be known, is for me to speak out. . I am 100% categorically innocent and I cannot wait to share my trove of evidence…soon. From the onset of these allegations, there has always been an agenda with the sole purpose of sabotaging my custody battleS. There was never any sort of accusations until court proceedings were initiated. Furthermore, at no point was there any violence exhibited toward that woman or any other woman—ever. These are merely combined battles to win their selfish war. However, I will continue to fight for what is best for my children. Co-parenting seems to be a lost art when anger, resentment and jealousy are involved. My goal is to look beyond said fog and focus on what is in THEIR best interests. They are the ones that matter. . When something is wrong, no matter what it is, I will be the first defender. I should not have to change this tactic when I am involved. . Stay tuned for THE truth, I am preparing it now for my own tell-all.

Many 90 Day Fiancé fans were upset with TLC for having Geoffrey Paschel on the show. The reason for their anger lies behind Paschel’s criminal history. The newly minted reality star has a history of abuse accusations levied against him by his exes. 

In June of 2019, Paschel was arrested following charges laid out against him by his ex-girlfriend. The police received a call for help from Paschel’s girlfriend, who claimed he was assaulting her and preventing her from making an emergency call. 

In court documents, Paschel’s ex said, “He repeatedly bashed/slammed my head into the hardwood floors of my home. He dragged me through the house by my hair and continued throwing my body into walls and furniture. I know this because of blood on my walls, furniture, etc.”

The police report corroborates many of her claims. When she was admitted to the hospital, she was found to have a concussion. Officers “observed a large raised bruise on [her] forehead and abrasions on her elbows and knees.”

It seems as though fans got the result they were hoping for. TLC had finally owned up to their mistake and dropped Geoffrey Paschel from the tell-all as a result of his past, and Paschel is not happy about it.

Like many men accused of assault, Paschel blames the current social climate and the #metoo movement for people’s anger against him. 

The 90 Day Fiancé star told Nati, “I feel that the network has bowed down to the pressure of a few thousand people as opposed to the, you know, 3.3 million people that watch the show. Which is unfortunate, we’re in a different time now, the whole #metoo movement or whatever. So there’s a lot of pressure to cower to the minority, and wanting to make sure they’re not making the wrong decision.”

He added, “There’s a lot on my mind, and I’m gonna release my own tell-all, you know on my YouTube channel. So you know, subscribe. And I’m gonna let it all be known there.”
