And despite being considered a major threat, Jamie-Lee Dayz was eliminated in tonight’s episode.
Now, in an exclusive chat with New Idea, the 27-year-old reveals that she is dating her ex-girlfriend... and is certain she’s the one!
New Idea: You have touched on the fact that you’ve been in relationships with men and women, tell us a bit more about that.
Jamie-Lee: I connect with people for who they are, not their gender. I am really proud of who I am and the community I am a part of.
New Idea: Are you dating anyone now?
Jamie-Lee: Yes, my ex-girlfriend! I was at an event a while ago and she showed up. We broke up about six months or nine before the show started because the timing wasn’t right, but we caught up and had a coffee and we hit it off again. Straight away we both acknowledged that the timing was right this time and it’s just so beautiful. I am so happy and it’s one of those relationships where you just get so excited to see the person!
New Idea: Do you think she’s the one and would you ever consider marriage?
Jamie-Lee: yeah, I do and it’s so weird to say that! One day we will get married, it’s definitely on the cards but we are just really happy with where we are right now.
New Idea: What did she think about you going on the show?
Jamie-Lee: She was really supportive and she wanted me to find love and I wanted the same for her too. We have always supported each other, regardless of whether we are together or not. If you love someone, you always want them to be happy!
New Idea: There are rumors that you and Brooke Blurton might have hooked up. Is this true?
Jamie-Lee: I think that is such a backward assumption to be made by so many people. It is such a shame people are thinking that because there are two girls with one similarity, they are automatically going to be together. It’s 2018, and it’s disappointing that these assumptions are still being made.
