Who is Francesca Farago dating? Has the Perfect Match cast member found love on reality TV...again? 

The Too Hot To Handle alumna sets herself up as the villain on Perfect Match, Netflix's latest—and arguably most disastrous—romantic experiment yet. Viewers who tune in for the series meet Francesca immediately, and she quickly becomes the main focus of the villa, which is just how she likes it. 

"It's going to sound so conceited to say, but I usually get what I want," Farago reveals literally within two minutes of the first episode. "If I want someone, I will get them. I'm cute. I have great boobs. I'm great in bed, and I'm super sexy."

On the show, Francesca sets her on Dom, but then rekindles a flame with Damian Powers, ultimately breaking Dom's heart. Then Abbey Humphreys enters the equation, and the two change the entire direction of the show by becoming the first same-sex pair. 

"I found out there was a possibility of me being matched with a female, and I was like, ‘In that case, I will stay for that,'" Farago told Variety. "I wasn’t even sure if it was going to happen because it was a heterosexual show. But I’m glad that it happened, and I’m glad that that relationship happened as well. I kind of just switched up the game.”

So, which one of the contestants does Farago called her other half? Well, it turns out she went on a different approach to finding love.

Who is Francesca Farago dating?

Yes, Francesca Farago is currently dating someone: TikTok star Jesse Sullivan, who she did not meet on the show.  

When Farago worked on an LGBTQ+ event for the video-sharing app in 2022, she interviewed three people, one of whom was Jesse. Since then, the two have been inseparable. Just recently, she tried on new MAC lipsticks in a TikTok video—one of many in which the couple appears together—and used Jesse as her kiss test.

Fans had many questions about when Perfect Match was filmed, and as it turns out, the two became an item after the show wrapped. On TikTok, one user commented: "How can I watch Perfect Match knowing you already found the love of your life?" Francesca responded: "Same 😂 but do it and lmk what happens 😂"

When speaking with Netflix Tudum, Farago said, "I ended up getting home and messaging someone I had already known. We connected right away, and we’ve been really happy together ever since. I’m in a super solid place in my relationship right now.”

Who is Jesse Sullivan, Francesca Farago's new S.O.?

Jesse Sullivan is a social-media influencer and LGTBQ+ rights activist. Jesse, a trans man, documented much of his transition on TikTok, where he has over two million followers. Although we catch glimpses of him with Francesca and with his child Arlo, there are other videos detailing the ups and downs of his journey, which began in 2019 when he came out and revealed he had started testosterone treatment.

Who has Francesca Farago dated in the past? 

Harry Jowsey and Francesca Farago from Too Hot To Handle got off to a serious start, despite his proposal with a RingPop, but their relationship fizzled rather quickly; while on Perfect Match, Francesca claimed Harry was just interested in sex. She was also linked to The Only Way Is Essex vet Demi Sims and former The Bachelorette contestant Jef Holm. 

If we're taking a look at Francesca and Jesse's interaction on social media—and their casual mentions about marriage in their videos—it seems that the reality star might've truly found her perfect match, even if it wasn't through reality TV.

The entire first season of Perfect Match is now streaming on Netflix.
