Geoffrey Paschel’s relationship with Varya Malina on ’90 Day Fiancé’

When Geoffrey fist visited Varya in Russia, things got off to an awkward start. Even so, he eventually proposed and she told him “not yet.” Geoffrey took the answer to mean that they’d broken up and returned home to begin dating his friend Mary. However, a couple of months later, Varya showed up at Geoffrey’s door in an effort to get their relationship back on track (while Geoffrey admits he was trying to ghost Varya, Varya didn’t think they’d broken up). After a heated reunion, Geoffrey decided to end things with Mary and got back together with Varya.

Though Geoffrey and Varya ended their season engaged, fans aren’t sure about where they stand today. Some fans believe Geoffrey is still with Varya. Some believe he’s with Mary. Others think Geoffrey is back to being a bachelor.

The trio has remained quiet about their relationship statuses because they’re still under contract, according to Geoffrey.

Even though the season is over, Geoffrey is pleased to find that he is still in the spotlight.

“I’m happy because I’m still being talked about,” he said on Instagram live with Domenick Nati on July 13.

At the same time, Geoffrey says he’s “not trying to ride the wave.”

“My season has aired. So, right now, my season has finished. So I’m not trying to ride the wave. People are always saying, ‘Why don’t you go live anymore? Why don’t you go live anymore?’ I’ve kind of passed the baton to the next group of people,” he said.

Never say never… I’ve never been one to turn down a challenge…well, um…at least a challenge that made sense…yeah…that’s it….well, maybe some didn’t make too much sense…Damn, don’t dare me, I’ll do it! I think it is important to push the envelope. I know our world would definitely not be the same world if we didn’t have the limit-pushers running around. . I grew up on the notion that, in order to make it, YOU have to make it. In my childhood, there wasn’t an option to remain dependent on others. I had to learn to be independent from a young age, and I am glad I did. I was taught to be as independent as one can be. When you don’t know how to do something, you figure it out. I’ve tried to pass this idea onto my children, which isn’t always easy. With this mindset, I was prepared for anything that life had to offer. It is about being adaptable and overcoming those hurdles. . This massive dog is a challenge. He appears to be all giddy, happy, and loving in these pics, but this little menace gave me a run for my money. He is a beast who does not want to be bothered with a silly shearing, yes, shearing. Those are sheep shears and there is no other option for his thick, course mane. What he doesn’t understand, in the moment, is that it’s for his own good. The summer heat and humidity in East TN is no joke. . Just with any challenge, if you stick with it, the reward is worth it. This fella was getting miserable in the heat. Once his coat was off, he was frolicking around as if he was a newborn colt. I, too, have found myself in challenges where it seemed as if the fight just wasn’t worth it. Yet, I have always patted myself on the back when I followed it through. My advice to you is to fight the good fight and not to give up…there is always going to be that lingering doubt. Whether it is about shaving your dog or taking a risk on a new career, the real goal is to never give into that doubt… . Have you been in challenges where you just wanted to throw in the towel? Did you fight your way through or give up? . FYI: The video of this will be on my YouTube channel in the next coming weeks. Be sure to subscribe so you can see these antics. It was nothing short of hilarious…

But even though Geoffrey has “passed the baton” to the next set of reality stars, he can’t help but notice that his Instagram lives still have a higher attendance than some other franchise alums.

“I think it’s cool that I can go on live and still have 500 people. I think that’s pretty awesome. I was watching one of the prior castmates going live, who has more followers than me, and they only had 100 and some odd people yesterday. And I looked at that and I thought, ‘Well, because I take care of my people.’ I’m not afraid to interact, message, respond to every comment, whatever, with my people. And I think that’s why I have a true base of people,” he said.
