It began after Carolina and Daniel took notice of each other after meeting for the first time, and their conversation took a provocative turn as they both realised they are each other’s type.
Carolina then told Daniel that she understands the hardships of newly married life and that if he ever needs any advice, she’s available.
Sound familiar? That’s nearly the exact same situation we saw with last season’s Coco and Cameron, who connected after one went to the other for marriage advice, and we all know how that turned out.
As for this current scandal, things really started to heat up between the two after they stayed in touch over the phone and started to meet up behind their partners’ backs.
Speaking to 9Entertainment about their situation, Daniel explained after their first meet at the gym, he set up a “date-type setting” with Carolina to “catch up with some drinks and a chat”.
“I confirmed the time, and then we met up, and just tried to do it in a bit more of a relaxing setting, a bit more of a romantic setting,” Daniel explained.
“We had been talking a little bit by that point, on the phone and stuff. So I just thought, I wanted to make a bit more of a romantic approach,” he said.
After keeping it a secret for two weeks, Carolina and Daniel finally revealed their romance to the other couples and the experts during an explosive Commitment Ceremony.
"We all came here for the reason to meet some undeveloped feelings and fall in love and obviously the both of us didn't get that with who we were initially matched with," Daniel said.
Much to everyone's shock, Carolina and Daniel brazenly asked the experts if they can stay in the experiment as a new couple, prompting a mass walkout.
Eventually, all the couples calmed down enough to head back into the room, only to discover that the experts refused to allow Carolina and Daniel to return as a new couple.
Although we’ll be seeing more of these two on the outside as in a video taken by The Wash in March, Daniel and Carolina confirmed they're still very much together after the show.
In the clip, the pair were holding hands as they went for a stroll, all the while they were questioned on the events after the episode.
"I don't know why we weren't worthy of a chance," Carolina said. "When clearly it has happened before in the past on other seasons."
Nevertheless, it seemed that while it was controversial and very unconventional, the pair found the love they were after.
