11 Reality Stars Who Coupled Up And Left Us Beyond Confused
Like the first person to die in a horror film, we never saw it coming...
Not a lot shocks us these days tbh. We live in a world where Gaz Beadle is going to be a dad, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber didn't get back together and Megan McKenna is going to be the next Miley Cyrus.
But when these reality stars booked a ticket on the love train together, our jaws dropped...
1. Jon Clark and Lauren Pope
Is this the ultimate curveball of 2017? Yes. When it was announced that Popey was coming back to TOWIE, there were endless possibilities about who she would get with after her failed romances with Lewis Bloor, Kirk Norcross and Mario Falcone. But Jon Clark? NEVER saw that one coming.
2. Marnie Simpson and Gary Beadle
When Marnie first appeared on Geordie Shore, the flame between her and Gaz was HOT. But everyone was shocked because he was in the thick of the Charlotte Crosby and Gary Beadle love story. We can still hear the screams of DON’T DO IT. But they did and it was strange for us all.
3. Steph Pratt and Jonny Mitchell
We’re still in shock about this one tbh. Love Island villain Jonny appears to have swept The Hills’ babe Steph off her feet with romantic trip abroad and loved-up snaps. As rumours swirl that he’s going to appear on the next season of Made In Chelsea, maybe it will finally be revealed how they even met.
4. Stephen Bear and Jemma Lucy
After Ex On The Beach wrapped, Jemma and Bear started dating flooding our lives with couple selfies on the Insta timelines. It went swimmingly for a few months until Jemma announced on Twitter she had dumped him because he’d cheated on her.
5. Jess Shears and Dom Lever
Love Island fans were STUNNED when the first twist of the 2017 series saw Jess Shears steal Dom Lever from a loved up Montana Brown. But tbh, they’re now engaged so it seems to have been the right move eh?
6. Gemma Collins and James Arg
This was a TOWIE twist if ever there was one. When it came out that James Argent and Gemma Collins had secretly been hitting bang-town after his split from Lydia Bright, viewers were like WTF? It was a long ol’ road after that of on and offs.
7. Marnie Simpson and Lewis Bloor
Celebrity Big Brother kicked off in 2016 with Marnie and Lewis’ love story shocking the nation. She was from Geordie Shore and had dated his co-star, TOWIE’s Ricky Rayment, so it was unlikely they would get together. People branded it a showmance but they defied the haters and continued to date after the house. Until Lewis cheated on her that is.
8. Lillie Lexie Gregg and Stephen Bear
After seeing Lillie and Gaz Beadle’s relationship unravel amidst a host of cheating scandals, the world was surprised when she feel for Ex On The Beach’s Stephen Bear as they were stuck in the villa together. Bear had been accused by more than one lady love of doing the dirty on them so viewers questioned her thought process.
9. Chris Clark and Jesy Nelson
Yes Jesy is technically a popstar and not a reality star but she started out on X Factor so we’re including it. And you can’t stop us. Plus the announcement that these two were a pair was beyond a surprise. But it was short-lived as he went back to ex-gf and TOWIE star Amber Dowding.
10. Whitney Port and Brody Jenner
Back in the day of The Hills, hearts everywhere were torn when Whitney and Brody headed out on a date. We all knew, Brody was meant for Lauren Conrad but we loved Whitney so much we couldn’t hate her. Not like that snaky snake Jen Bunney…
11. Chad Johnson and Sarah Harding
The Bachelorette villain Chad and singer Sarah hopped into a full-on relationship when they headed into the 2017 CBB house. When the housemates went in, viewers assumed he would go for fellow American Marissa Jade or X Factor’s Amelia Lily. Baffled doesn’t even cover it.
Now be a lamb and check out the most outrageous reality show hook-ups EVER...
