The reality star wrote a lengthy post on Instagram about her time in America with Geoffrey. Varya currently lives in Russia while her fiancé lives in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Varya wrote, “Time for stories. How would I characterize Americans in one word? Before visiting America, I would say simply – a smile. Now, from the height of my experience, I think this word is political correctness. Perhaps this quality is trained over the years of living in a multinational country, where it is very easy to offend with an incorrectly spoken word. And now in more detail, as I came across this thought:”
She described an experience in a Taxi, “Once I had to order a car to go to an interview. Driving the taxi was a local resident at an age when the ladies were entertained not with compliments, but with stories about fishing and guns. I decided this was my chance to find out more about real life in Tennessee and so I started a nice conversation with the taxi driver. The first thing that caught my eye: I do not understand what he was talking about. It seemed to me that he chewed the words before pronouncing them, and then swallowed the vowels. It was as though I put my ear to his mouth, but even so barely made out 20% of what was said. Then I found out that this is the southern accent. Anyway I know that the best way to win someone over is humor, so I started joking.”
The reality star continued, “We laughed at the words that I’m Putin’s spy. And my driver asked what have I found out about the locals. And I said with a smile on my face: everyone here has moonshine and you are rednecks. And giggled because I was sure that I said a joke. The taxi driver’s reaction surprised me though. He frowned and did not utter a word. And all that I tried to say afterwards, he ignored?♀ turned on the music louder and then generally began talking on the phone with a friend on the speakerphone. A curtain!”
She ended, “The reason for my stupid joke was Geoffrey. It was he who told me that they call themselves rednecks because of the neck tan and at the same time laughed and made it clear that this is a funny nickname. Only after the incident with a taxi driver I googled this word and realized how insulting it sounds. Conclusion: Americans can be very resentful of sharp, but honest statements. Maybe that is why they consider the Russians brutally honest.”
On the TLC reality show, Geoffrey travels to Russia to meet Varya for the first time. The two get off to a rocky start but Geoffrey eventually proposes to her in Russia. She tells him she isn’t ready and he fled back home.
Varya decided to give the relationship another chance and flew to America to win him back. At the time, Geoffrey had started seeing another woman named Mary who was present when Varya came knocking on his door. Geoffrey ultimately decided he wanted Varya and proposed for a second time. She accepted the proposal and are making plans for her to move to the United States.
As The Blast previously reported, Geoffrey and Varya aren’t the only “90 Day Fiancé” couple making headlines.
