’90 Day Fiancé’: Geoffrey Paschel Reveals the Real Reason He Wanted a Russian Girlfriend

Geoffrey Paschel on his charges and TLC’s decision to uninvite him from the ’90 Day Fiancé’ Tell-All

Geoffrey has always maintained that the charges against him are “an agenda to try and make [him] lose custody of [his] child.”

“I know the truth. You got all these people putting on this press and this negativity and whatever else out there. I know what happened. I was there. And I’m ready to face it,” he said in an interview with The Domenick Nati Show on May 19.

“Every time my court date gets put off, specifically due to the pandemic, I’m trying to push the quickest court date that I can and get this stuff over with. So I’m trying my best to get this court date over with as quick as possible. Because I have everything I need to exonerate me,” he continued.

Fans were so upset with TLC for casting Geoffrey in the first place that they started a petition to get him removed from the show. TLC must have heard them loud and clear because they uninvited Geoffrey from the “Tell-All.”

“I feel that the network has bowed down to the pressure of a few thousand people as opposed to the 3 million people that watch the show, which is unfortunate. We’re in a different time now. The whole Me Too movement and whatever. So there’s a lot of pressure to cower to the minority,” he said of the network’s decision.

Why Geoffrey Paschel wanted to date a Russian woman

Nati asked Geoffrey why he decided to “look overseas” for a girlfriend. Geoffrey responded that he wanted something completely new because he tends to date “the same type of women.”

“The reason that I kind of played with it, toyed with it, in my mind is that, here, where I live, I go for the same type of women. I mean, that’s why I’m in the position I’m in now. I get these partners that I think, ‘Oh, I can help them. They need this, they need that. Let me fix them. I can be that person. They just need a good, strong shoulder to cry on’–whatever,” he said.

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.

Geoffrey continued: “I got in that fixing rut and so I wanted something completely new. And that’s why I actually really contemplated Varya and toyed with it for five or six months before I saw her.”

90 Day Fiancé fans still don’t know if Geoffrey is with Varya Malina or Mary Wallace, if anyone at all. He was supposed to do his own “Tell-All” on his YouTube channel but pulled the video because “plans have changed.”
