For Olivia the feelings were mutual and in an interview with WHO, she expressed her disbelief for how well they hit it off.
"I wasn’t prepared for it to be so good and so easy straight off the bat," she said.
"We literally woke up the morning after the wedding, driving in the car on the way to our honeymoon, and it was like being in the car with my boyfriend.
"We didn’t have to force it, it just felt so natural. It just felt like the first day of the rest of our lives," she added.
Olivia, a 27-year-old teaching student from NSW, and Jackson, a 30-year-old plumber from Victoria, quickly became fan-favourites for their blossoming romance.
Although, viewers turned against Olivia after seeing a new outspoken side to her, a stark difference to the “sweetheart” we were originally introduced to.
Her dramatic shift also caught Jackson by surprise, and it ultimately put a heavy strain on their otherwise perfect relationship.
While the pair were able to overcome their differences and save their relationship, they did hit a few more bumps along the way.
So, where does that leave Olivia and Jackson now? When New Idea caught up with the pair in early April, they were still very much together and even talking about starting a family.
“Our relationship has very much progressed since wrapping the show. Being off camera has brought us a lot of peace,” Olivia told us, who is now sharing a home with Jackson on NSW’s Central Coast, after he was previously based in Melbourne.
“Babies are definitely on the brain,” Olivia said. “[We want to] travel, buy a house and make our marriage legal before we’re ready for a bub.”
“He’s the best human I know, so I know he’s going to be a very present, very fun dad one day,” she added of Jackson.
But, the last weekend of May saw their relationship come crashing down after Jackson was caught kissing another woman.
Footage of Jackson locking lips with the mystery woman – later identified as Hannah Hughes – went viral over the weekend, after they were spotted making out in a bar in Melbourne.
After footage of the kiss blew up online, Olivia was left “speechless” by the whole ordeal, but continued to stand by Jackson.
“We’re still together... I have told him to have a big think about what he wants,” she told the Daily Mail. The pair also released a joint video statement, which you can learn more about here.
