“Charlotte is only recently single so timing-wise, it worked out perfectly for them to get viewers invested in their pretend love story,” the spy told New Idea. “Ryan is not her type at all but she knows the fans will love it.”
The insider added that the blonde brit and hunky Aussie— who both rose to fame after starring in two reality shows that are extremely controversial—are experts at giving the people what they want and know exactly how to remain relevant and in the public eye.
“Her whole career is based on hooking up on TV, she knows exactly how to win ratings,” the source added. “Ryan was also on Married at First Sight, so it’s obviously something he was open to.”
In spite of this, their romance continues to heat up, with Charlotte admitting during a recent episode of the hit series that she's been crushing on him for some time now.
Then, during an episode last week, Charlotte finally made the first move and planted a kiss on Ryan.
"I told you about the surprise. I was going to give you a kiss!" she teased.
"I was going to kiss you by the basin!" he gushed later on that night.
