[90 Day Fiance Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out whether Blake and Jasmin got married and are still together. This article also reveals where each person is living.]
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 the latest episode of 90 Day Fiance's seventh season, which premiered in early November on TLC.
Blake and Jasmin were introduced in Episode 4 of the season, which Blake was 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 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, but in his mind, Jasmin was "perfect" and life together was going to be great.
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.
Despite apparent red flags, Blake said he was 85 percent sure Jasmin was coming to the United States for him and for love, not just for a Green Card.
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.
Blake said he was glad Jasmin had her sister in L.A. so she wouldn't be alone when he couldn't be around.
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.
Are Jasmin and Blake 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 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 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.
