Chloe from Perfect Match is no stranger to using reality TV to find "the one," having starred in both Too Hot to Handle and The Circle season 2. But her two failed previous attempts at televised love didn't stop her from trying to find the one on yet another reality show—third time's a charm, after all!
Chloe Veitch was one of 23 contestants to star in the first season of Netflix’s latest dating show Perfect Match, which aired on the streamer throughout February and March. With only 10 singles allowed in the house at once to try and find love (and they needed to be in a couple to stay), Perfect Match gets super competitive and messy. And that’s before you even get to the fact that Perfect Match sees the return of other fan-favorite reality stars from hit Netflix series such as Too Hot to Handle, The Circle and Love is Blind, or that extra-special ingredient of Chloe’s IRL ex, Mitchell Eason being in the Perfect Match cast as well.
As you can imagine, Chloe’s time on Perfect Match was far from smooth sailing. From firstly seeming to couple up with her “perfect match” Shayne Jansen, to the complicated arrival of her ex-boyfriend Mitchell, Chloe went through a lot. But who does Chloe ultimately end up choosing as her perfect match? If you're wondering, who is Chloe from Perfect Match dating? Here's what went down, both during the show and after.
*Warning: spoilers ahead!*
What happened with Mitchell and Chloe from 'Perfect Match'?
Before we get into who Chloe eventually ended up picking on Perfect Match, let's do a refresher course on Chloe and Mitchell’s relationship, as her end decision is based on Chloe and Mitchell’s past.
After Chloe starred in Too Hot to Handle season 1, she entered The Circle in an attempt to secure the prize money. During her time on The Circle, Chloe initially had eyes for catfish Trevor, who was actually played by his wife DeLeesa St. Agathe. After discovering Trevor’s true identity, Chloe focused on Mitchell Eason, who entered the game in episode five. The two ended up having a kiss at the show's reunion after the cameras stopped rolling.
In May 2021, Chloe said to Cosmopolitan that she and Mitch had not labeled their relationship due to the distance, with Chloe being located in the UK and Mitchell being in the US: “We shared a kiss just after the cameras were turned off at the finale. Because of the distance, it hasn’t got a label. But we get on really, really well and it is romantic. It’s not just a friendship, but we’ll see.”
It was initially assumed the pair had decided not to pursue a romantic relationship and instead remained friends. But according to the conversation they had on their date on Perfect Match, it seems like they did have a romantic relationship, albeit a brief one. Mitchell reveals on the show that he and Chloe only broke up six months prior to filming Perfect Match. (If you want more intel on when was Perfect Match filmed and how did filming affect other IRL relationships, we've got you!) In Chloe’s confessional she admits that there was a point at which she did love Mitchell but “because he is a virgin, he started to get quite insecure about me and him not having sex, knowing that I had previously had sex.”
Even though Mitchell admits he doesn’t do well with commitment, he tells Chloe he wants to give their relationship another try. Initially, it seems that Chloe and Mitchell are overcoming their past difficulties—that is until they win the daily challenge in episode eight and go on their private date where Mitchell tells Chloe: “I am not looking for a relationship right now.” Yikes! That’s the end of their relationship as Chloe gets to the board and chooses Shayne to go back on a date with.
So if you're wondering, are Chloe and Mitchell still together? The answer, we're afraid, is a firm no!
Do Shayne and Chloe end up together on 'Perfect Match'?
In short, yes. Shayne Jansen does end up forgiving Chloe for the most part, and they match back up together in episode nine of Perfect Match.
However, it seems as though Chloe hasn't been totally forgiven by Shayne. In episode 10, after Chloe writes a lovely poem for him where she admits she’s falling in love with him, it all comes to blows when Shayne argues with Chloe about the night she chose Mitchell, when the duo ran upstairs and jumped in the pool. Their jump ended up with the pool overflowing onto a sad Shayne, who was sitting below it on the steps. The fight leads to Shayne saying he’s leaving, though he was eventually talked down by Dom and Georgia. Chloe ends up sharing a bed with Georgia all night and Shayne with Dom, in order to give the pair a chance to cool off from their argument.
After reflecting on his behavior, Shayne apologizes and the pair reconcile, and they do actually make it to the final.
Chloe spoke to My Imperfect Life about how she got through the argument with Shayne, saying: “I'm very forgiving. If I mess up, I know that I'm a good person and I would hope that my partner would see the good in me and forgive me and I've been in many relationships in my past where I've been made to feel like the devil when I'm not.”
She added: “Maybe being in this relationship with Shayne, and having multiple conversations with him over multiple things that happened and was said, was the best way for me to diffuse the situations that were going on.
"I don't know how I didn't see that as a red flag because thinking back now it is a red flag. But I mean, I guess that's just myself. And I think watching myself on TV will really teach me a lesson and show me like, 'Chloe, you need to stop doing this girl because otherwise you're never gonna find your perfect match.' And I don't know, hopefully, some bloody woman gets a lesson out of it from my doings.”
On their final date on the show, Shayne admits he has a lot to work on and he usually only thinks of himself, but he wants to move forward with Chloe, saying he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make their relationship work outside of the show. But did this win them the title of being a perfect match for each other? Nope, that went to—drumroll please—Dom Gabriel and Georgia Hassarati!
How did Mitchell Eason feel about Chloe and Shayne?
Let’s just say Mitchell did not hide his feelings about Chloe and Shayne’s relationship. In fact, he flat-out refused to see their compatibility, telling My Imperfect Life: "Just looking out, I didn't see there was true chemistry there...I kind of call bulls***t on that.”
Speaking to MIL about the couple almost a year after filming, Mitchell also said: “It's so tough because I did have genuine love for Chloe, and I think I just got a little cold feet. I know I do struggle with commitment. I know I do struggle with actually, you know, opening that last bit in the heart and really letting myself fall and I think that's a breakthrough I had on the show. And then leading down the road, you know, we went our separate ways."
"I still think she's an amazing person. We remain close throughout everything, and regardless of what happened on the show or how we thought about each other in certain moments, I know I have genuine love for Chloe. I know Chloe has genuine love for me," the reality star added.
Who else has Chloe from 'Perfect Match' dated?
On Too Hot To Handle (her OG show), Chloe was very flirtatious with David Birtwistle and Bryce Hirschberg but ultimately ended up single, even though she did kiss David through a strawberry to try and avoid Lana’s rules.
In June 2022, The Sun also revealed that Shameless actor Jody Latham was dating Chloe, which, if true, pretty much confirmed at the time that Shayne and Chloe did not make it as a couple outside of the show.
Who is Chloe from Perfect Match dating now?
So if she's no longer with Mitchell or Shayne, who is Chloe from Perfect Match dating now?
Well it seems things have stepped up several notches in Chloe's love life! Back in March, Chloe Veitch's boyfriend was revealed to be a hockey player named Ivan Lodnia.
Revealing that the pair met during a chance run-in in California, Chloe told E! News at the time that things were super serious between them. She confessed, "I am certain he is the one. I am extremely happy and deffo having kids when I'm 26, so I haven't got any time to waste!
"All these dating shows have prepared me for this, because if it wasn't for them pairing me with the wrong ones, I wouldn't have met Mr. Right."
In fact, it seems the pair really may well be ready to settle down, as Chloe recently hinted on her Instagram that she is engaged, just two months after Perfect Match aired (but a year after it was filmed)!
In the post, she wrote, 'This years been an unexpected one, finding love, finding more life long friends, hitting my first million on tiktok, Being sober, being on my 3rd no1 Netflix show, moving to LA and a proposal? Also it’s my birthday Sunday I’ll be FUGGIN 24😭💀 💍'.

The reality star hasn't actually officially confirmed the news of an engagement, so there's no telling yet whether the caption was more tongue-in-cheek than fact. But either way, it seems like she's super happy with her new man—so we say, good for you Chloe!
All 12 episodes of Perfect Match are available to stream on Netflix.
