In early February, Ben spoke to Yahoo Lifestyle about Ellie and Jono's alleged romance, revealing he only found out they were together at the reunion - but always had suspicion of their connection.
“I saw the way they looked at each other from the start, and I suspected something fishy was going on,” he shared with the publication.
Ben added that he feels like Ellie "emotionally cheated" on him... however, he is happy she and Jono found love from MAFS.
“I honestly wish them well as they seem happy together,” he said. “We text sometimes still. Pretty disappointing that they decided to ruin the storyline for MAFS fans.”
Though Ben's hesitancy about starting a family created some bumps in the MAFS road, Ellie has insisted that the pair "got on like a house on fire" during the experiment.
“My eyes were just on Ben,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle. “I'm just like, so grateful to have such a great match. My eyes were not straying.”
Jonathan, meanwhile, was coupled with marketing consultant Lauren Dunn.
Their relationship had a rocky start after the two slept together on the first night and Lauren compared it to "having a one-night stand". She then claimed that Jono was "too nice" which left the two in an awkward place.
While they managed to progress their relationship, the argument seems to have many heads for the couple, with Lauren upset that Jono doesn't share his emotions with her, and Jono upset that he can't get a word in.
Looks like things don't work out for either of those couples, but Jono and Ellie could be our new MAFS sweethearts! Following in the footsteps of Evelyn and Duncan from 2023. We can't wait to watch it all unfold.
