’90 Day Fiancé’: Is Jasmin Lahtinen Using Blake for a Visa?
90 Day Fiancé is back with Season 7, and you know what that means — new couples and new drama. And, possibly, new people being taken advantage of. For example, Laura Jallali has recently been claiming that Aladin Jallali only married her for money and a visa.
When it comes to Blake and Jasmin, fans already have some concerns — mostly because it sounds as if Jasmin might be trying to find a way to join some family already present in the U.S. Here’s what we know so far about the new couple and their relationship.
Who are Blake and Jasmin?
Blake is a 29-year-old audio engineer and music producer living in Los Angeles. Jasmin Lahtinen is a model hailing from Finland. It seems as if the couple met each other online.
During an introductory video on the TLC website, Blake explains that he fell for Jasmin when he first saw her dating profile. “When I first saw Jasmin online, I thought she was beautiful. She has brown hair, beautiful brown eyes, beautiful teeth, beautiful smile. I could go on and on and on. I wanted to know who she was. Her profile said she was in L.A. but she tells me she’s in Finland. So I’m just like, ‘Damn okay, this isn’t going to work,’ but at the same time, I really wanted it to,” said Blake.
“I kept going back and forth from L.A. to Finland. I realized I wanted to be with her for the rest of my life. I asked her to marry me and she said yes,” he continued.
However, it does sound like the couple may not share as many interests as fans might expect. “I never expected to date a model. It may look like we have nothing in common, but Jasmin and I are meant to be together,” said Blake during a promo spot for the new season.
What to expect
As always, there’s no such thing as smooth sailing in the 90 Day Fiancé universe. In fact, Blake explains that the couple will be experiencing their fair share of ups and downs during their time on the season. And some of those ups and downs will come back to the feeling that the two might not have too much in common.
When asked by Entertainment Tonight about what possible upcoming drama they might have, Blake replied, “In the beginning it was kind of like, a little bumpy and smooth for us, but as it got down the line, it kind of got nerve-wracking and that can come from anything. You’ll have to find out.”
Meanwhile, Jasmin Lahtinen explained the expected to face hate from viewers, but that she’s not worried. “I really don’t care what people say, only thing I care about is what my family thinks and people that I love. People have opinions, always. Like, I really don’t care,” explained Lahtinen.
“You will see me go through some pretty rough — not stuff — but some pretty rough sh*t. So, it’s like a whole new experience for me. You know, taxes are high, that’s all I’m saying,” concluded Blake.
Could Jasmin Lahtinen be using Blake for a visa?
Some fans are bandying about theories that Jasmin Lahtinen could be in this relationship for a visa to the U.S. Their reasoning? Apparently Jasmin Lahtinen’s sister is already living in L.A. It seems as if Lahtinen’s sister won a “green card lottery” and moved to L.A. as a result.
Because of this, Blake’s loved ones have begun to question Lahtinen’s intentions when it comes to marrying Blake. Is there a likelihood that she’s simply using the L.A. native in order to earn a green card?
However, when Entertainment Tonight asked the couple about their relationship status, Blake replied, “It’s kind of hard not to speak highly of her. Whatever the outcome is of her and I, you know, it’s not like I’m going to be like, ‘Oh, I’m never talking to her again!'”
It sounds as if Blake respects Lahtinen regardless of what occurred during their journey filming together.
