It was the showdown that 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Day fans had been waiting on.

Geoffrey Paschel and Varya’s breakup

While visiting Malina in Russia, Paschel proposed. Unfortunately, Malina was not ready to make such a big commitment. She told Paschel that she felt like they were moving too fast. Paschel took that as a “no” and decided to end the relationship.

“The best thing for me to do is just ignore it and try to move on with my life,” he told the cameras. “I feel like she’s messing with my heart.”

Paschel moves on

When the show caught up with Paschel in the U.S., he had already moved on and started dating his friend, Mary.

“I want to find happiness and I want somebody to find that happiness with me,” he said in a confessional. “I really do see a future with Mary so I’m hoping the closer I get with her, I’ll naturally start forgetting these feelings I had with Varya.”

After going on a date with Mary and making things official, Paschel was on his way to forgetting Malina all together.

“Maybe I didn’t need to go all the way to Russia to find love,” he said later. “Maybe Mary is my life partner.”

How TLC made the confrontation happen

Paschel had no idea that Malina was even considering coming to America to surprise him. In his mind, the relationship was over.

“This was a complete surprise 100%,” Paschel said on the Domenick Nati Show of Malina showing up on his doorstep. “I hear people say this is so staged, this is so fake. I was caught in the moment. You saw my sh*t eating grin. I didn’t know what to do.”

He and Mary had gone out to dinner the night before for her birthday. She had a little too much to drink, so Paschel let her spend the night without telling production. The next morning, the show was set to film.

“The doorbell rang and I assumed it was production because they were going to come over and film some b-roll,” he said. “They had no idea Mary was there. They had 0 idea. So there was no communication to that because they were tending to Varya you know bringing Varya out and filming Varya.

“And you know, they told me, ‘hey, we are going to be there in 30 minutes, open the gate, tye up the dogs, whatever, which I did all of that. Went back in the house, hung out talked a little bit.”

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.

Paschel and Mary were just waiting on the crew to arrive, but what they really got was a rude awakening.

“The door bell rings,” he said. “My door panel is translucent so you can’t really see through it. You can see through it but you can’t see what’s on the other side basically. So I went to the door thinking it was production and it was Varya.”

So, all of that drama was actually pretty organic.
