’90 Day Fiancé’: Geoffrey Paschel’s Criminal History is So Extensive He’s Barred From a Country

Reality TV is filled with drama and tension — after all, that’s what brings fans to the shows in the first place — but TLC might be regretting bringing on Geoffrey Paschel as a cast member for 90 Day Fiance. Paschel has been generating a lot more drama than expected, and much of it is upsetting fans so much that they want him off the show. As more and more about Paschel’s criminal history and violent allegations come to light, the extent of his past misdeeds continues to shock viewers. 

Now, it looks like Paschel has managed to get himself banned from an entire country because of his actions.

Geoffrey Paschel was rejected on the show

Fans may have been primed to sympathize with Paschel. After all, he flew all the way to Russia to be with a woman he thought loved him, and the relationship turned sour in a hurry. When Paschel proposed to Varya Malina, she told him things were moving too quickly, and he interpreted her rejection as a breakup. “I feel like she’s messing with my heart,” Paschel said as he vowed to move on with his life. 

When he returned to the states, he seemed to rebound quickly. He appeared to be in a new relationship with a woman named Mary, but then Malina showed up at his doorstep, throwing everything into upheaval. There was a clear drama that the show was focused on through the narrative. Paschel was caught in a love triangle, and fans were supposed to wonder who he would end up with and which woman was right for him. 

Instead, most of the discussion around Paschel has revolved around his life offscreen. 

Geoffrey Paschel has a criminal past

Paschel did not entirely hide his past from the women he was courting on the show. He was honest with Malina about some of his criminal past, explaining that he served time in prison when he was just a teen because of a drug conviction, as reported by Oxygen. Since this misdeed was so far in Paschel’s past, and he was upfront about it, it might not have been that big of a deal to the relationship. 

However, Paschel was less forthcoming with some other legal struggles. Much more recently, Paschel was arrested on domestic violence charges. He faces accusations from multiple women who say that he abused them when they were in a relationship with Paschel. When fans caught wind of these accusations, they pressured TLC to remove Paschel from the show entirely. It appears that the protests were somewhat successful. Paschel was not included in the tell-all special for the series. 

The impact of Geoffrey Paschel’s past is serious

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.

While Paschel has tried to brush off the accusations against him as nothing more than a jealous ex trying to make his life miserable with lies, there have been some serious consequences over this picture of his past. The accusations against him include charges as serious as kidnapping, rape, child endangerment, and felony larceny. In fact, Paschel’s charges are so extensive that he has managed to get himself barred from entering the country of Canada!

The charges could also play a role in how Paschel’s love life pans out. If Paschel does end up attempting to bring Malina — or any other woman from outside the U.S. — to be his wife, he would need approval of a visa that would allow him to sponsor a spouse. The charges against him have the potential to derail those efforts, which means that even if Paschel manages to straighten out his love triangle and get his relationships in order, he may still find himself with a lot of drama to sort through.
