Luckily for Carolina, Dion thought she was worth the wait and the two instantly hit it off at their wedding.
With her strong, filter-free personality, and his calm, collected persona, they were off to a great start, despite the former taking a cheeky dig at her groom’s height.
“I'm not too tall,” Dion said in a piece-to-camera. “But, you know, when I stand on my wallet I'm 10-foot-tall, so it doesn't matter,” he added with a laugh.
Carolina herself admitted she could be a bit of “diva” sometimes and was impressed by how “patient” Dion was being her.
Although, we soon see just how patient Dion will need to be with his bride, who is unimpressed by his efforts to form a connection.
Seemingly hung up on their differences, like the fact that he doesn’t go to the gym, doesn’t eat breakfast, doesn’t like the same music she does, and - wait for it - is not tall, Carolina doesn’t feel an attraction to her groom.
“To be quite honest with you, I would have loved nothing more than walking down that aisle and meeting the man of my dreams. And that didn’t happen,” Carolina told Dion.
“I honestly feel like we are mismatched,” she added, before telling Dion he was “delusional” for trying to make things work between them - leading him to declare he was finished with the experiment.
“It’s like she’s upset she got stuck with me, it’s hurtful,” Dion told the cameras after the fight. “It’s… it’s just really hard because I’ve given up everything to be here.”
Carolina’s rocky marital status led her to strike up a connection with co-star Daniel Holmes, who has also had a turbulent romance with his bride Jessica Seracino.
While it started off with flirting at the dinner party, Carolina and Daniel eventually started texting each other and meeting up behind their partners’ backs.
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.
But, it’s what’s been happening outside of the show that confirmed Carolina and Dion’s split before they left at the Commitment Ceremony, as the former has well and truly moved on with Daniel.
In the months since the show wrapped, the pair are still very much together, and happily it seems, with a constant stream of relationship updates shared to social media.
And, it seems that Dion has also found his happily ever after, as the TV groom recently revealed that he's currently loved up with a new woman closer to home.
"I can confirm I've found love right here on the Gold Coast and I'm very happy," he told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Though he wouldn't spill on who the lucky lady is, we have a feeling their romance will be much more down-to-earth and much less dramatic than his last.
