Well, there are 8 valence electrons around xenon.....

#### Explanation:

...and 7 valence electrons around each fluorine atom..

VESPER predicts an $A {X}_{4} {E}_{2}$ structure, that is octahedral with respect to electronic geometry, and SQUARE planar with respect to molecular geometry. $\angle F - X e - F \equiv {90}^{\circ}$ to a first approx.
