90 Day Fiance couple Blake Abelard and Jasmin Lahtinen are about to be introduced on Season 7 of the TLC series, but how did their relationship turn out -- did Blake and Jasmin get married and are they still together?
[90 Day Fiance Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out the current status of Blake and Jasmin's relationship and whether the 90 Day Fiance couple is still together.]
Blake, a 29-year-old audio engineer and music producer from California, and Jasmin, a 27-year-old model from Finland, will be sharing their story of love and hardship when Season 7 of 90 Day Fiance returns with its next episode on Sunday, November 24.
Blake and Jasmin will be introduced in Episode 4 of the series' seventh season, which Blake is not happy about. Blake ranted on Instagram Stories earlier this month it was "a big let down" for his family and friends to not see his relationship in the November 3 premiere.
Blake called Jasmin and himself the "most anticipated couple" of the new season.
After calming down, Blake insisted he never meant to disrespect anyone and is grateful he'll even appear on 90 Day Fiance at all.
Blake and Jasmin first met on a dating app and he was completely taken with her eyes, smile, body and more.
"When I first saw Jasmin online, I thought she was beautiful," Blake said in video posted on TLC's website.
"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."
He continued, "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."
Blake's family and friends, however, were worried and wary Jasmin might've been using Blake, especially after learning Jasmin's sister had already received a Green Card and was living in Los Angeles, CA.
"In the beginning it was kind of like, a little bumpy... As it went down the line, it kind of got nerve-wracking... You'll have to find out," he shared.
Blake said his storyline on the show is going to be both "dramatic" and "realistic."
"I'm, like, drama-free as a person so I don't know what to say," Jasmin told ET, before turning to Blake and saying, "You're more drama than me."
Are Blake and Jasmin still together? Did the 90 Day Fiance couple get married?
Jasmin hinted she's currently living in the United States when she posted two separate photos of herself in Los Angeles, California on November 4 and November 15.
Unless Jasmin only arrived in the United States within the last several months -- which seems unlikely given 90 Day Fiance's typical filming schedule -- her presence in America indicates the pair must have gotten married during the 90-day period of her K-1 visa, or else she would have had to return to Finland.
When Jasmin and Blake spoke to ET at a 90 Day Fiance press event in Hollywood late last month, they appeared to be very much together!
In fact, the pair reportedly held hands during their interview, and Jasmin was wearing an engagement ring.
However, the 90 Day Fiance couple repeatedly avoided direct questions about their relationship status.
"You'll have to find out!" Blake teased.
When ET pointed out Blake only seemed to have great things to say about Jasmin, he 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!'"
"We both tried. It's not like I tried it and failed or something," he added.
Blake acknowledged during the interview it takes "two people" to make a relationship work.
"We had a little bit of a relationship before the proposal and everything like that. It's not like I've known her for a few hours or a couple days. I've known her for a while," Blake said.
Blake reiterated how fans will have to watch and see what happens.
"They show us -- they tap into a little bit of my world and see what I do with music, and they tap into her world with her gymnastics and everything, and her sister lives out here. That's one thing a lot of people don't have... It's kind of a plus. It's good," Blake explained.
Despite moving to a different country, Jasmin suggested her transition wasn't actually a huge adjustment.
"I visited here [the U.S.] before, so I kind of knew where I was moving to," Jasmin noted.
"I've known him for two years, so I feel safe around him. So it was a good thing to move here. It's been great."
Blake also insisted any drama 90 Day Fiance viewers are going to see happened to be "normal, common things" for couples and their frustrations often had to do with the filming process -- not each other.
When ET asked the pair whether they had any regrets about doing the show, Jasmin noted, "I don't have any regrets."
"We try to live life with no regrets," Blake added. "That's my motto right there."
Blake and Jasmin insisted they're not even worried about haters or trolls this season.
"Negativity, we don't try to embrace that too much," Blake said.
"I really don't care what people say, only thing I care about is what my family thinks and people that I love," Jasmin reasoned. "People have opinions, always. Like, I really don't care."
However, Jasmin admitted she's not really looking forward to watching herself on TV this season.
Blake apparently wanted to star on 90 Day Fiance, and he got Jasmin onboard with the idea.
"In the beginning, I didn't want to," Blake said, explaining why he was never chasing fame.
"But then later on, he wanted it," Jasmin interjected in their interview with ET.
"Exactly. She made me realize I wanted to," Blake admitted.
When Blake ranted about not being a part of 90 Day Fiance's premiere on Instagram Stories, he again shot down the idea of using the show for attention and publicity.
"Wanting 'fame'??? Bahahahahaha. Name ONE person that's ACTUALLY 'Famous' from this show. I'll wait," Blake wrote to his followers.
