Four pairings have seemed to find a serious connection on Beauty and The Geek Australia 2022 — so which couples are still together?
The series started out with 10 Beauties and 10 Geeks and promised to have “more heart, more laughs and more romance” than ever. And boy, is it delivering!
So, which couples are still together?
Tara and Michael
From the beginning of the experience, Michael had MAJOR heart eye emojis for fellow children’s entertainer, Tara — cementing them as a Beauty and the Geek couple to watch!
During the very first 70s-inspired mixer in episode one, the pair locked eyes on each other, knowing there was something special between them.
Then in the July 24 episode, the love birds finally went on their first date, with Michael taking his Beauty to an indoor skydiving centre.
After the date, it was clear that Tara was a smitten kitten. She even gave him all the signals for a ye olde kiss. However, Michael failed to instigate it, and their opportunity was missed.
However, during the July 26 medieval challenge, the couple finally locked lips for the first time.
While their on-screen relo is certainly the cutest thing ever, has it crossed over to real lyfe?
It certainly seems so because some sneaky So Dramatic! spies spotted some VERY telling evidence.
On July 30, Tara and Michael joined alum Samuel, Tegan Burns, Alexander Waters and past season contestants George Goldfeder and Sam Ready on a night out.
Even though they weren’t pictured together (hello! They would have been in SERIOUS trouble), they were the ONLY current couple in attendance!
The couple also have some seriously CUTE AF ‘gram use, which points to them living happily ever after post-show!
“Posting because look how cute this is #batg, [sic]” Michael captioned a loved-up pic of the pair.
“We’re a bit cute 🤩 [sic],” Tara said, while Beauty Danielle Caceres said: “Soooooo cute 😍 I canttttt [sic]”.
On August 7, Tara and Michael shared the sweetest joint post on Instagram.
“Are we still together? Absolutely we are 💜” they captioned a carousel of gorgeous images.
“Thanks to Beauty and the Geek we had the opportunity to meet, and it wasn’t long after the show wrapped that we also fell in love.” LOVE. STOP.
“The show allowed us to experience a lifetime of things together in such a short time, and since then, we’ve only fallen more in love with each other.”
The post continued with the pair saying that neither of them expected to come out of the show with the sort of connection they had.
“We hope that every person out there who has ever doubted their worth, been treated badly, or lost hope in themselves and in love, can see from us that the right love will come along when and where you least expect it ❤️ [sic]”.
WE CANNOT EVEN DEAL!!!!
Mike and Heidi
It was a slow burn for Batman fanatic Mike and his stunning Beauty Heidi after sparks began to fly between the pair.
While they already had eyes for one another, it wasn’t until after his EPIC makeover that his confidence blossomed, and the pair solidified their partnership.
From the sweetest first date, first kiss and a life swap that saw Mike meeting Heidi’s family on her family farm, it seems these two are destined to go the distance.
But, are they still together?
Taking to Instagram on August 4, Mike said his relationship status with Heidi is “the big question on everyone’s mind”.
“Every moment we shared [on Beauty and the Geek] I can promise was real and genuine but unfortunately… Heidi and I aren’t together…” he wrote. “But that’s ok! [sic]”
While they may not be a couple, Mike said he and his Beauty “talk nearly every day and are the best of friends”.
“We both love each other just not in a way a lot of you may have hoped.”
In a subsequent interview with 9Entertainment, Mike revealed that Heidi called time on their romance.
“Things pretty much ended as soon as things ended on the show,” he confessed. “We went back and it kind of just ended from there.
“She just said she wasn’t ready to keep things going.”
The news comes after Heidi shared a speculation-inducing Instagram post after #Meidi was dumped from the show on July 31.
“I want to start off by saying the absolute biggest thank you to @mikegambaro for making me become a better version of myself [sic],” she wrote.
“All my life I have struggled with opening up, showing affection and loving myself but with a click of a finger mike made all of that go away. Mike has made me feel loved and appreciated properly for the first time in my life ever, there’s a reason why you can see a big smile on my face every episode. Thank you for being the most incredible companion in this experience, you will forever be a huge part of me. [sic].”
“You will forever be a huge part of me.”
Samuel and Angelique
Samuel and Angelique clicked the second they began chatting at the very first mixer of the season, even finding their very own call sign.
The cute pair’s relationship went from strength to strength, and they even shared the very first kiss of the season.
During the July 18 episode of BATG, Angelique revealed that her connection with her Geek was strong, due to the fact that he is not “judgmental”.
“I can say I can be myself, and he doesn’t judge me!” she said.
Are Samuel and Angelique Still Together?
After their elimination, Samuel and Angelique posted to their respective Instagram accounts to announce that these two “aliens” had left the building.
While their cast mates flooded the comments section with farewells, one Insta fan asked the question we’ve all been dying to know!
“You guys were so cute!! Are you still together?” they asked, while other users feverishly liked the comment.
Unfortunately, after wrapping the show, Sam and Angelique broke up.
In an interview with 9Now, the Geek revealed that they are no longer romantically involved.
“We’ve been talking every now and then, and thankfully we’re on really good terms,” he said before adding that she taught him not to “hide away my geeky side” and “to actually just be completely who I am.”
“It was mainly Angelique that showed me how to that with with how she was so confident in herself.”
Aww we loved these two, but happy they’re still friends.
