By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/08/2019
90 Day Fiance couple Blake Abelard and Jasmin Lahtinen's reunion in America has seemed to get off to a bit of a rough start on Season 7 of the TLC series, so did they make it as a couple -- 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 if Blake and Jasmin are still together and whether they got married and are living in the United States together.]
Blake, a 29-year-old audio engineer and music producer from California, and Jasmin, a 27-year-old model from Finland, began sharing their story of love on Episode 4 of 90 Day Fiance's seventh season, which premiered in early November on TLC.
Blake wasn't happy he had to wait so long to see himself on TV, and he ranted on Instagram Stories about the "big let down" for his family and friends not to see his relationship with Jasmin on the November 3 premiere.
Blake claimed the press had called Jasmin and himself the "most anticipated couple" of the new season.
After calming down, Blake insisted he never meant to disrespect anyone and was grateful to film 90 Day Fiance overall.
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."
Blake's family and friends, however, were wary of Jasmin's intentions and whether she might've been using Blake for a Green Card, especially since her sister was already living in Los Angeles, CA.
90 Day Fiance's seventh season showed Blake picking Jasmin up at the airport.
Blake admitted he had been naive in some of his past relationships, as he had married at age 19 and then divorced at age 23. Blake said their two different career paths resulted in the split.
After Blake's divorce, he was down and depressed and so his friend convinced him to sign up for a dating app, and that's when he connected with Jasmin.
Blake worried he was being catfished or scammed at first since Jasmin was so gorgeous, but he received the proof he needed once he asked Jasmin to video chat with him.
Once he started visiting Jasmin in Finland, she surpassed all of his expectations and he couldn't believe she was the real deal.
Blake said Jasmin is "fun, super smart and can speak multiple languages." He added that she's a gymnast and personal trainer, and he viewed her as "unbelievable."
Blake realized by his third trip to Finland that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Jasmin, and so that's when he proposed marriage to her. Blake was so happy Jasmin said yes, and then her K-1 visa got approved.
Blake noted his mother Kerline was among the people skeptical of his new relationship. Kerline worried Jasmin was going to want designer clothes and a nicer place in which to live.
Blake's friend Rita had also watched him "rise and fall" in different relationships, and she didn't want him to get taken advantage of again.
Blake knew his decision to bring Jasmin to America was risky and unpopular, but in his mind, Jasmin was "perfect" and life together was going to be great. He was 85% sure Jasmin wasn't coming for a Green Card.
Meanwhile, Jasmin's sister Janette couldn't wait to experience Los Angeles with her sibling and best friend. Janette said she didn't know Blake very well, but she looked forward to spending time with him as well.
Jasmin said she was single for three years before she met Blake, who was different from anyone else she had ever dated. Jasmin said she'd never marry a man she's not compatible with, but Blake was going to be the first man she ever lived with.
Once Jasmin and Blake reunited in America, she admitted she liked doing things alone, to which Blake quipped, "Not anymore!"
The pair planned to live with Blake's stepdad and stepmom, so Blake worried there might be a privacy issue. Blake, however, said his sex life with Jasmin was "great" and he couldn't complain.
Since it had been so long since the couple was together, Blake got them a hotel room for a couple of nights so they could have some privacy.
Jasmin claimed she was so happy to be reunited with Blake, but she just wanted to shower, sleep and relax since she was completely exhausted from traveling. Blake seemed understanding but disappointed.
The next day, Blake and Jasmin met up with Blake's closest friends at the hotel pool.
Jasmin wasn't excited about the pool party because she was still jet-lagged and tired. Jasmin wasn't looking forward to answering a bunch of questions and having to be social and bubbly.
Jasmin ended up being a little quiet at the party, but Blake's friend Darrell could tell Blake really liked her. Blake's friends predicted Jasmin's 90 Days in America were going to be eye-opening for everyone involved.
Jasmin also revealed she doesn't drink any alcohol, which Blake respected. But Blake wanted Jasmin to also respect him when he wanted a drink at certain occasions. Jasmin joked she didn't want Blake's mouth to taste like alcohol when they kissed and so she'd prefer him not to drink either.
During the gathering, Jasmin suddenly wasn't feeling good, so she decided to leave the little party and go back to the hotel room, where she could rest.
"I'm marrying Blake, not his friends," Jasmin told the cameras.
Blake wished Jasmin had pushed through her fatigue a little longer in order to get to know his friends better, but he said he had to accept Jasmin the way she is.
Jasmin insisted she's "a people person" -- as long as she's around people she truly likes.
Jasmin had been happy to return to the hotel room alone, without Blake, which was a little hard for him to hear. Blake wanted Jasmin to need him, but she appeared to be very independent.
Blake thought Jasmin could be "very blunt at times," as she always "voices her opinion." But he figured things would only get better within the next few months of her living in America.
Are Blake and Jasmin still together? Did the 90 Day Fiance couple ever get married?
Jasmin and Blake are definitely still an item, at least according to Jasmin's Instagram account.
On December 3, Jasmin took to Instagram and posted a beautiful photo of the couple with a mountain landscape in the background.
"A love like no other," Jasmin captioned the image, along with a red-heart emoji.
Jasmin also hinted she's currently living in the United States when she posted two separate photos of herself in Los Angeles, CA, on November 4 and November 14.
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 she and Blake must have gotten married during the 90-day period of her K-1 visa, or else she would have had to return to Finland.
In late October, Jasmin also posted a boomerang of herself kissing Blake as the sun was setting.
When Jasmin and Blake spoke to ET at a 90 Day Fiance press event in Hollywood around that same time, 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," 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.
