Whether we like it or not, we've become invested in the love lives of our favourite reality stars.
So, when two stars from different shows, say Married At First Sight and The Bachelor, spark whispers of a new romance, you bet we're intrigued.

According to the Daily Mail, Locky accidentally appeared in the background of an Instagram Live interview between Aleks and socialite/boxer, Kyron Dryden.
The Bachelor quickly jumped out of the picture, but eagle-eyed fans had already managed a clear view of the reality star.
Talking to Kyle and Jackie O on their KIIS 106.5 radio show this morning, Aleks denied the rumours she and Locky were romantically involved.
"I'm still filing my divorce papers!" Aleks joked.
"Locky was definitely not at my house, were just friends of a friend. Perth is very small."

Despite "hitting it off" after bonding over their reality television experiences, Aleks remained firm that nothing had happened with our next Bachie.
In fact, Aleks said she only met Locky for the first time this past weekend.
"I've never met Locky prior to Sunday, I didn't even know who he really was," she said.
Surely Aleks has seen the news?
As for her ex-husband, Ivan, Aleks also told Kyle and Jackie O that relationship was well and truly over.
"Ivan is definitely put to bed," she said.
