Blake, a 29-year-old audio engineer and music producer from California, and Jasmin, a 27-year-old model from Finland, are currently starring on90 Day Fiance's seventh season, which has been airing for over two months on TLC.
Blake and Jasmin were introduced on Episode 4 of 90 Day Fiance's latest edition.
Blake and Jasmin first met on a dating app and he was completely taken with her eyes, smile, body, and beauty. Jasmin's profile said she lived in Los Angeles, CA, but she was really from Finland.
"I'm just like, 'Damn okay, this isn't going to work,' but at the same time, I really wanted it to," Blake said on the show.
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.
Regardless of what anyone else thought, Blake applied for Jasmin's K-1 visa anyway and anxiously awaited her arrival.
"I never expected to date a model. It may look like we have nothing in common, but Jasmin and I are meant to be together," Blake said in a promo for the currently-airing 90 Day Fiance season.
But during a Fall 2019 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Blake hinted there will be drama between Jasmin and himself on Season 7 of the TLC series.
"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."
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 was "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's friend Rita had watched him "rise and fall" in different relationships, and she didn't want him to get taken advantage of again. His mother Kerline was also a bit worried and skeptical.
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, Blake said his sex life with Jasmin was "great" and he couldn't complain, but she just wanted to shower and rest their first night together in a hotel room.
Blake seemed understanding but disappointed, and then his friends were disappointed when meeting Jasmin the next day at the hotel's pool.
Jasmin, still jet-lagged and exhausted, wasn't looking forward to answering a bunch of questions and having to be social and bubbly. She also doesn't like to party or drink alcohol.
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.
Blake liked Jasmin's independence but said she can 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.
Blake then brought Jasmin to his mother Kerline and stepfather's place. Blake explained that once his parents moved into a new home, he and Jasmin would be taking over their apartment. However, Blake had no idea when that move was going to take place.
When Jasmin met Blake's parents, Kerline thought the model was beautiful yet quiet and reserved.
But Kerline and her husband sat down with Blake and Jasmin to tell them there had been a misunderstanding and some miscommunication.
Blake's parents said they weren't going to allow Blake and Jasmin to live together under the same roof before marriage given they're a conservative, Christian family.
"This is how we do things, and you know that," Kerline told Blake and Jasmin.
Kerline told Blake that Jasmin could live with them but Blake had to live with his brother. Kerline didn't care if this news upset Blake, and neither did his stepfather.
Jasmin wished Blake's parents had told them this before they started to move in, but Kerline said she and her husband would probably be out of the apartment in a few months -- and by that point, Blake and Jasmin should be married and could live there together.
Jasmin wished Blake had stood up for her more, but at the same time, she respected his parents' wishes. She just wished Blake had better communication with his parents.
The couple intended to "roll with the punches" although their situation wasn't ideal.
Blake just didn't want Jasmin to leave him, but Jasmin told the cameras she would not spend 90 days sleeping alone -- regardless of what Blake's parents had said or demanded.
Blake then brought Jasmin with him to a luncheon with friends. Jasmin made it clear she wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and wasn't interested in building a career for herself in the United States.
Jasmin hoped to welcome kids five years into the future, but Blake's friends didn't understand what Jasmin was going to do in the meantime.
Blake's friend Rita thought Blake and Jasmin were total opposites, but Blake insisted that's why their relationship was working. Rita just hoped Blake wouldn't change as a person.
Jasmin ended up spending a lot of time with Blake's mother at home, and she told Kerline she wanted to become a social-media influencer but had time to figure things out in the meantime.
Kerline was a bit concerned Jasmin didn't have a plan in place to help her son with their bills.
Jasmin hadn't spoken to her parents about her upcoming wedding, but she figured they would not pay for it, much to Kerline's dismay. Jasmin planned on just having a small ceremony in which she could wear a white cocktail dress.
With 70 days left to wed, Blake had a concert to put on with one of his friends. Since Jasmin took so long to get ready, she apparently made him late, which pissed off Blake's pals in the industry.
Jasmin expected Blake brought her sister and best friend, Janette, to the show since she hated the club scene in which people drink and smoke.
Jasmin admitted Blake's music was different and she didn't really understand the lyrics. Blake also covers his face when he raps, which Jasmin thought was weird and unnecessary.
Blake hoped Jasmin wouldn't hate his music, but while he performed, she appeared totally disinterested. Blake and his friends hoped Jasmin would dance in the pit, scream and cheer, but she just sat at a quiet table the whole time.
"If Blake was not my fiance, I don't think he would be my favorite artist," Jasmin said in a confessional. "I don't like rap music."
Jasmin, however, told Blake's friend Rita that she was enjoying herself. Rita worried Jasmin was using Blake and hoped she was in the United States for the right reasons.
Blake understood where Rita was coming from, and he also wanted Jasmin to prove that she cared for him.
Blake's friend Joey, who is president of Blake's record label, said it was hard to see that Jasmin wasn't into his music. Blake explained Jasmin tends not to be very expressive and she just doesn't love to party.
Blake's friends didn't think Jasmin was "down" with their world, and the guys just wanted to be able to laugh and have fun with Jasmin, which simply wasn't happening.
"With the 90 days, it's either now or never that he notices [Jasmin]'s lack of interest in what he's doing. Maybe he doesn't want to accept it, or maybe he's just delusional," Joey told the cameras.
"I don't know what we said that was completely off, but... we're coming from a good place."
So did Jasmin and Blake get married? Is the 90 Day Fiance couple still together?
Jasmin and Blake appear to still be an item, as things were definitely fine between them in late December 2019.
On December 26, Blake posted a video to his Instagram Stories in which he was playfully targeting Jasmin with a nerf gun, which was probably one of his Christmas gifts.
Around the same time, Jasmin shared a funny photo of the couple posing in their Christmas sweaters.
Jasmin also posted a photo on December 25, saying she was in Los Angeles.
And two weeks earlier, Blake conducted a Q&A session with his followers on Instagram Stories.
Blake revealed he'd like to have 2-3 children with Jasmin in one of his responses, showing they're still together.
And on the same day, Blake also posted a photo of the 90 Day Fiance cast, gushing about his time with Jasmin in New York City when they all gathered to film the Season 7 Tell-All special.
"This 5 day getaway to New York was amazing. I just want to say Thank you to all the fans that we've met so far and taken pictures with. Thank you @tlc for allowing this moment and opportunity to happen. Seeing @jasminaniel experience New York for the first time ever was wonderful and amazing, moments like these are moments we will always remember," Blake captioned the image.
"She also got to meet my brother, Brandon @bastyle_nycla and see us & our goofy ways. Also, thank you to all the 90 Day Fiance Season 7 couples] that we met... I don't care what people THINK... and after hearing that ALL OF OUR EXPERIENCES with this show are the same, there's nothing that can break the bond that was gained after shooting for 20+ hours in a day, having some drinks and good conversations."
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.
Her continued 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 2019, Jasmin also posted a boomerang of herself kissing Blake as the sun was setting.
When Jasmin and Blake spoke to ET at a90 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."
