Reality TV thrives off drama and 90 Day Fiancé participant Geoffrey Paschel has certainly offered lots of that during his time with the show. Not only is he involved in an international love triangle, but his criminal past has recently been revealed, shocking most fans. In an incredibly rare twist, Paschel may actually have too much drama for the show.

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.

TLC’s popular reality show, 90 Day Fiancé follows couples who are involved in a long-distance relationship, with one person living in the United States, and the other internationally. Due to immigration guidelines, the lover who lives outside the country is given a 90-day visa to join their partner in the US. The couple must get married during that time span, or be deported back to their country of origin. 

Paschel joined the show in its fourth season after falling for Varya Malina in Russia. After communicating long-distance for some time, Paschel traveled to Russia, with the intent to ask Malina to marry him. But before he could do that, Paschel tried to explain his criminal past, in the hopes that Malina would still accept him. Surprised by his revelation, and worried about what her family might think, Malina declined to marry Paschel. So, he returned to the US, thinking the relationship was over. 

After returning home, Paschel started a new relationship with a long-time friend, Mary Wallace, according to Your Tango. But Malina was having second thoughts. She actually decided to give Paschel another chance, traveling all the way to the US to surprise him, where she encounters Wallace. So, you can see, TLC should be thrilled with all the drama Paschel has created for audiences. After all, reality TV usually loves this stuff. 

Geoffrey Paschel has a criminal past

Unfortunately, Paschel may actually have too much drama for the show, and most of it is because of his criminal history, according to Oxygen. It appears that TLC didn’t do a very good job researching their participants before the show started because otherwise Paschel might not have been asked to join. 

In addition to spending 30 months in prison for drug charges when he was 19, Paschel has also been recently accused of abusing his ex-girlfriend. Knox News located in Knoxville, Tennessee is reporting that Paschel was required to appear in court, after being arrested in June 2019 for aggravated kidnapping, domestic assault, interference with emergency calls, and vandalism.

In a petition to the court seeking protection, Paschel’s ex describes the abuse. “He repeatedly bashed/slammed my head into the hardwood floors of my home,” the report says. “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.”

When was the last time you said something kind to someone close to you? How about a random person you have encountered along your daily journey? How about someone you only know from TV? I am extremely interested in all of these answers because in reality, they are all equally important. Your words distinguish your overall character as a person. . We have lost two castmates from this season so far. When I say “lost,” I mean they both took time off because their mental health was more important. I hope they know how commendable and intelligent that decision is. Even WITH the overwhelming, positive support of many, they chose a respite. Some of us have thicker skin and can brush off negativity easier. This is only due to prior experiences in life or just the ability to separate the positive and negative interactions. By no means does this mean any of us are mentally stronger than the others. . We are all HUMAN and so many people don’t comprehend that words can damage so much more than actions. Do you know that suicide is more prevalent than homicide by DOUBLE here in the US? This statistic will only increase with the ongoing quarantine. How many people have you lost around you due to this? . The “haters,” or ever better, bullies, out there are no better than the hate they are attempting to spread. I can speak for myself easily, but my point doesn’t lie merely with me. We, as people, focus on the negative stuff SO much more than ALL the positivity. Trash talk sells no matter if it is true or fabricated. Train wrecks draw people like flies to shit. THIS is completely wrong and will lead to the detriment of so many people. . When I write, I want to make a difference and I ALWAYS do. Every time I post something, I am affected and a difference is made—within me at the very least. When negativity is disseminated, it affects the people who care about that person as well. Think about the kids, the parents, the friends…it moves faster than the 6 degrees of separation by an exponential amount. . It’s easy to gloss over all the support by dwelling on just a handful of the negative interactions. Be nice, people. Words kill. Even the mighty can fall by only a wisp of wind…

Fans were shocked that Paschel was still a part of the show after his criminal past was revealed to the public. However, it appears that TLC is taking some steps to distance themselves from him. According to Daily Soap Dish, a show insider reported that “Geoffrey and Varya were NOT part of the Tell All filmed this past weekend.”

The same story reports that TLC confirmed they did not ask Paschel to appear on the Tell-All, but they did invite Malina to be a part of the episode. However, Malina replied that she would not appear without Paschel. 

During a live stream, as reported by Soap Dirt, a fan asked Paschel why he wasn’t on the Tell-All episode. Unfortunately, he didn’t give any specific details. “Ask them why I wasn’t on it,” Paschel said. 

At this point, fans are assuming that TLC received too much backlash for featuring someone accused of abuse toward a former partner. But until they release more details, that’s all viewers have to go on. Paschel isn’t saying much about the decision either. He may have contractual obligations not to speak about the issue. However, it’s clear that it wasn’t his decision, and that he isn’t happy about being pushed off the Tell-All episode.
