Are Joey and Kariselle still together, or have the Perfect Match cast members gone their separate ways?

The debaucherous new Netflix show invites singles from several of the streamer's reality series—Too Hot To Handle, Love Is Blind, etc.—to find romance in a luxurious villa, and things get off to a rocky start practically immediately. (Here's where Perfect Match was filmed, if you're in search of vacation inspo.)

Fans are quickly drawn to Joey Sasso and Kariselle Snow because of their outgoing personalities and previous history, but there are red flags.

"So, I met Joey in L.A., and uh, yeah. It was wild. He looked me straight in my face and told me he's in love with me, literally said he was going to marry me one day, and I fell for it," Kariselle said in a confessional. 

In the past, the two had different ideas about commitment, which ultimately led to an unstable partnership, but while on Perfect Match, they both put their eggs in one basket. While others in the villa jump around, they match with one another time and time again. 

The uncertainty might've deterred other singles, but Joey and Kariselle attempt to give their partnership a fighting chance while on the show, which is not what any of us were expecting. We had two bickering lovers who couldn't see eye-to-eye who turned out a good match?

"I've worked too hard for this man," Kariselle shouts while venturing up to her bedroom with Joey.

Now that the final batch of Perfect Match episodes has arrived, and the Perfect Match winners have claimed their titles—to much surprise, it was not Joey and Kariselle—everyone's curious about what transpired between the show's fan favorites. Sure, they might not have won the free vacation Netflix promised...but they did get engaged!

"We would be sitting, talking about the future and what's going to happen after and I'm the type of person that, when I get something in my head I can't unsee it," Sasso told Newsweek (opens in new tab). "So I remember it was lunch time and I think we maybe had a week left to go on the show and I just thought 'I'm going to marry this girl, I'm going to ask her to marry me."

Unfortunately, their romance did not surpass their vacation at the villa. The distance was a main factor driving them apart, but Sasso revealed to Netflix Tudum (opens in new tab) that they're "working on" their friendship currently.

“You live in different places, you’re trying to get on the same page with each other,” he said. “I think that both of us really respected each other enough to be able to walk away from the situation and really give each other time, distance, space.”

When astrologers took at a look at the Perfect Match cast zodiac signs, our two Sagittarius lovers were deemed an "adventurous" couple, so here's hoping if they don't reunite later, they'll still find common ground as friends.

The entire first season of Perfect Match is now available for streaming on Netflix. Want more romance? Don't forget to watch Love Is Blind season 4.
