There were even rumours of a MAFS-style ‘partner swap’ after Sam was spotted out with beauties Tara and Tegan, but Aaron suggested that scandal wasn’t what it seemed.
“It's really good that we're keeping in touch,” he says.
“This is just once in a lifetime experience that we're probably never, ever going to be able to repeat again. And each of us have walked out of this with 19 new friends.”
Karly added that the entire cast share a “massive group chat” where they keep up to date with one another’s lives.
“Some days at the end of the day, I'll get on my phone and I have to scroll back through hundreds of messages because they're all just talking in this group chat,” she laughs.
Several castmates have also been spotted out on the town together since filming wrapped, proving the bonds between the cast weren’t just for the cameras.
Aaron adds: “I promised myself that I'm definitely going to keep in contact with all 19 of them.”
Though he and Karly didn’t form a romantic connection, the winning couple revealed to our sister site Now To Love that they knew they were right for each other early on.

"It's going to sound crazy to some people, but when he walked out onto that field… and I've said this to Aaron, it was a little bit of like a light bulb moment,” Karly explained.
“It was almost slightly spiritual for me. I tunnel-visioned. I don't know how to explain it, but I just knew he was my boy from the start. And look at us now."
