The former Before the 90 Days star smiled adoringly at her beau in never-before-seen Instagram photos shared on Sunday, July 25, confirming that she and ex Geoffrey Paschel are no longer together after their drama on TV.
Many fans congratulated Mary on finding new love and said they were glad to see her “happy” after everything that went down with her former flame.
Mary previously set the record straight about where she stands with Geoffrey and his other love, Varya Malina, confirming she and Geoffrey actually severed ties far before viewers suspected.
“No, I am not with Geoffrey. No, I do not want to be with Geoffrey. No, that [has] ended, it has been over for a very long time, longer than you guys think that it is,” Mary said in a since-deleted Instagram Live on February 4. “Second of all, Geoffrey and I are not even friends anymore.”
As fans recall, Mary found herself unknowingly in the midst of a love triangle on season 4 of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.
Geoffrey originally joined the cast with Varya, 30, his long-distance girlfriend. Geoffrey traveled to Varya’s native country of Russia to meet her in person for the first time, and he proposed to her at the end of his trip — but Varya declined because she didn’t feel ready to take the next step in their relationship. She hoped to continue dating, but Geoffrey felt their love story was over.
Once the Knoxville native returned to the states, he moved on with Mary, who was a longtime friend. The then-couple went on several dates and their relationship seemed to be progressing when Varya, who did not know about Mary, decided to surprise Geoffrey by traveling to America and showing up at his home. When Varya knocked on his door, Mary was sitting in his living room — and the ladies went head-to-head.
“You came all the way from Russia and surprised him out of the blue when you turned down his proposal. So why the f–k are you here?” Mary asked. Varya warned Mary not to speak to her “in that way,” adding, “If you want everything good for him, just stay away. … He doesn’t love you.”
Mary left, and Geoffrey invited Varya to stay with him at his home during her visit to America. He eventually broke things off with Mary and chose Varya. Before she was set to return to Russia, he proposed to Varya again — and this time, she said yes.
Because the trio never showed up for the season 4 tell-all in 2020, fans have been patiently waiting for an update on their relationship status ever since then.
In April, Varya shared a life update of her own and confirmed she has been in the United States for four months. “I’m staying in Pensacola [Florida],” she shared, revealing that she sold her apartment in Russia to help afford her expenses. “Not living here, just visiting (still on my tourist Visa). It’s the longest trip of my life.”
