Francesca Farago and Harry Jowsey arguably had the rockiest relationship of any of the show’s contestants. They fought, got back together, and managed to burn through $32,000 of the group’s money by hooking up on numerous occasions.
The two got off to a rocky start after Harry convinced Francesca to break the “no kissing” rule early on in the series — which cost them $3,000. Instead of owning up to the group, Harry instead told people it was Francesca who initiated the kiss.
The betrayal led to a mini-Cold War between the two that lasted for half the season.

Despite the fighting, name calling, and even a bit of rope burn during a steamy workshop in Japanese bondage , the couple ended up forming a deeper connection in the end.
Harry even told Francesca he would be willing to move to British Columbia from Australia for her in the final episode of the series.
While they maintained radio silence after the show stopped filming in 2019, the two announced they were still together in an Instagram post in April.
