Memphis and Christmas become latest Big Brother showmance
When confirming their relationship, Christmas stated, “My favorite trait about Memphis is that he understands and knows exactly who I am. He sees me and appreciates me for me and not who he thinks I should be, or who I have been in the past. He feels like my home. I also love his wild, unapologetic self. He is who he is.”
The statement was part of the confirmation that the couple gave to E! News. She had a lot of praises to speak about Memphis.
When giving his own list about what has attracted him to Christmas, he stated, “The list could go on for days, but her contagious smile, unapologetic laugh and authenticity are just a few traits I love.”
The couple went on to speak about how they weren’t looking for a relationship inside of the Big Brother house, but that it just happened based on the time that they spent together. The undeniable chemistry between the pair was something that a lot of fans picked up on while watching the live feeds late at night.
Christmas said that “I really didn’t think that it would happen for me.”
“I wasn’t looking for a relationship, I was there to WIN. It’s so wild to have this experience because we reverse engineered how society promotes falling in love. Memphis and I got to know one another through real conversations, building trust with each other and not starting with a physical connection. That’s a rare thing!” she continued.
Memphis added to the conversation by stating, “Never in my mind would I ever think I would find love thanks to the Big Brother house, but sometimes fate has other plans.”
