Three’s a crowd. Varya Malina awkwardly confronted Geoffrey Paschel’s new love interest, Mary, when they came face to face on the May 24 episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. The ladies were both shocked to see each other at his Knoxville, Tennessee home, leading to an uncomfortable back and forth conversation between the two.

“Who are you?” Varya asked. “Who am I?” Mary said, before turning to Geoffrey to ask why his ex-girlfriend showed up at his doorstep. “I did not know she was coming. I had no idea,” the TV personality assured his friend-turned-new flame.

The tension continued to escalate as voices were raised. Luckily, his son, Paxton, walked in the room to see what was going on, which deescalated the situation for a moment and prompted Geoffrey to introduce Varya to his son.

“It’s been weeks since getting back from Russia and I haven’t talked to Varya the whole time,” the season 4 star said in his confessional, revealing he wasn’t “ready” to see her again after she denied his proposal. “I feel really really bad,” he admitted.

“This whole situation is not fair to Mary because this is not her fault,” the reality star added. “I’m sure Mary has a lot of choice words that she could say because I had told her Varya’s done, we’re over with. And now, Varya’s at my door.”

Mary said she was “literally shaking” because of the ordeal, telling viewers she didn’t “really understand what’s going on right now.” The reality star became emotional while sounding off about the drama in her confessional. “It’s embarrassing, I feel like a fool,” she tearfully admitted. “I feel extremely foolish and I don’t like feeling this way. It’s not fair.”

After the animosity became even worse, Mary walked out of the door with her stuff and was called a “bitch” by Varya, leading Geoffrey to intervene and say she didn’t deserve that treatment. “[Did you] leave your panties there?” Varya later yelled to Mary when she went back towards the house.

Geoffrey was torn amid their feud, explaining he has “two women” in his life that are vying for his attention. “Varya came all the way from Russia to try to reenergize our relationship where it’s fell out, I mean our relationship has completely fallen off. And then you have Mary that’s completely innocent in this,” he said about his conundrum.

Varya continued to try to convince him she’s genuine about building a future together, but Geoffrey seemed hesitant to believe her. Despite his concerns, the star took Varya to a bar to meet up with some of his friends, which didn’t go as smoothly as possible considering most of them appeared to be team Mary. At the end of the episode, Mary showed up.

“I can’t believe this girl is here. She doesn’t want to let him go,” Varya said in her confessional. “That irritates me. She wants a war? She will get the war.”

This showdown is far from over.
