Wondering if any of the Perfect Match season 2 couples are still together? Well, you're not alone! Since the Perfect Match season 2 finale was released on Friday, June 21, 2024, everyone has been wondering which -- if any -- couples are still together.

Only Harry Jowsey and Jessica Vestal were featured in a post-credits scene. They revealed that they had connected again after filming, but Netflix revealed they broke up shortly after. Perfect Match season 2 was filmed in Mexico in August 2023.

On Monday, June 24, Netflix gave the people what they were waiting for. On X (formerly Twitter), Netflix shared a video that checks in with each couple. Sadly but so obviously, no couples from Perfect Match season 2 are still together.

Where are the Perfect Match season 2 couples now?

Heading out of Perfect Match season 2, there was truly one or two couples who seemed like they really even liked each other. Harry and Jessica, despite all of the issues Harry caused, genuinely seemed to like each other. It made sense that they rekindled things after the show only to break up shortly after, as mentioned.

"We gave it a shot after the show," Harry said about Jessica. "It just, it didn't work out, but we still have amazing relationship. And, I still think the world of her."

The other couple that seemed actually into each other was Stevan Ditter and Alara Taneri. They should have won the season, in my opinion, but they didn't. I think I was most interested to see if they were still together after the show, but things did not go well. In the video, Alara said that Stevan had ghosted her.

"After the show, we went on holiday. It was amazing," Alara said. "He promised me that we'd be together, and we'd get an apartment. And, then, well, yeah, he ghosted me."

Not a great look for Stevan! He followed up by saying, "I just did not have time to carry on a relationship, let alone one that was overseas."

Bryton Constantin and Elys Hutchinson, who got together toward the end of the season, also broke things off shortly after filming ended. Same with Micah Lussier and Kaz Bishop. All three of those couples were long-distance relationships.

You're Perfect Match season 2 winners, Christine Obanor and Nigel Jones also broke after dating off and on, according to TUDUM. In the video, Christine calls Nigel out, though!

"I blocked him," Christine said. "Make sure that we're on good terms because, obviously, he wants everything to look good for the cameras."

Chris Hahn and Tolú Ekundare also broke up. Tolú said in the video that Chris "fumbled" their relationship. Ouch!

"How is my relationship with Chris after the show wrapped?" Tolú said. "What relationship?"

That's even colder, but I'm guessing things did not go well!

Look, after the summer of love that wasn't, it's clear that Perfect Match season 2 is just not the format to actually inspire or nurture a real relationship. Two seasons have come and gone, and there's not even one couple to show for this dating show. That's a poor track record for a dating reality show. And, on top of it all, it actually seems like a lot of the cast actively dislike each other! That happens on all reality shows. In the video, even Harry says that he and Jess shouldn't have tried to start a relationship on a dating show! I don't know what else needs to be said.

Early in the season, I wrote about how this show needs a format shift. There are many reality shows that give a platform to people trying to increase their visibility in the public eye and turn that into business opportunities in the future. That's been true for decades, but Perfect Match season 2 should lean into that or lean back and try something new. If the goal is just putting good-looking fame-adjacent people on the screen, that's fine, but at least make it fun and interesting! There's no upside when the show they have now. There's very little actually drama because the stakes are so low!

Love Island knows how to take a cast, let things simmer, and then continue to shake up and roll the dice. Perfect Match doesn't know how to do that, which is why they have the contestants engineer their own drama sending their fellow contestants on dates. Even then, there are no stakes! We need actually rose ceremonies for the "matching." We need to see other people's reactions when people couple up. We need so much more than we are getting.

And, honestly, so do the contestants! There are people looking for love on this show, and there's clearly people who are not looking for love at all. That needs to change if this show wants to keep going year after year.
