Netflix reality star Francesca Farago is engaged!
She first appeared in season 1 of the hit Netflix reality show “Too Hot To Handle” and began dating her costar, Harry Jowsey, on and off after filming wrapped. The two were engaged at one point, but later called it quits.
She then appeared on Netflix’s “Perfect Match,” which debuted on Valentine’s Day. Although she was linked to several different individuals throughout the show, she decided to head home alone after the finale and get back together with her ex: TikTok star Jesse Sullivan.
It turns out that it was the right move, as she announced on Tuesday night that the two are now engaged!
‘Too Hot To Handle’ and ‘Perfect Match’ Reality Star Francesca Farago Is Engaged!
On Tuesday night, the Netflix reality star took to Instagram to share a carousel full of photos of the two together. “WE’RE ENGAGED,” she wrote in the caption, adding, “A glimpse into the most magical night ever. Obsessed with our family… what is life!!”
Famous friends were quick to pile on the congratulations, including many of her “Perfect Match” costars and “Too Hot To Handle” alums from all four seasons of the show. Clear Cut, who made matching rings for the family, wrote, “Congratulations!!! So honored to have helped Jesse and Arlos’ matching rings.”
“ILYSMM THANK U SO MUCH CAN’T wait to post more details of the rings we made,” Francesca replied. Jesse has a teen daughter named Arlo from a prior relationship.
After calling it quits for good with Harry in early 2021, Francesca started dating Jesse in July 2021 but took a break the following year when she started filming “Perfect Match” in spring 2022. However, they got back together shortly after filming wrapped.
Francesca Farago Reveals That Her Fiancé Gets ‘Death Threats’ On Social Media
Francesca Farago identifies as queer and Jesse “Sulli” Sullivan is transgender. In a February 2023 interview with Variety, Francesca explains why the two share frequent updates about their lives together despite some of the backlash they have received about their relationship.
“Especially the way the world is right now, I feel like there is so much going on. It’s crazy, the hate towards our community,” she told the publication. “The hate is a lot louder than anything else.”
“People are still getting death threats and people are still getting, like, attacked in public and it’s very dangerous for people in our community, especially certain members,” she continued, adding that Jesse also gets “death threats” from people on social media.
“My boyfriend is trans and he gets death threats on his posts,” she added. “And he’s just a nice normal dad. He’s so sweet.”
“To have these aspects of public hate from that just proves that the more representation we have, the more positive it will be because people will see that we’re just normal people,” she concluded.
