There are six couples on Netflix’s “The Ultimatum” who decide to work through a relationship stumbling block by dating other people. This way, they hope to find out if their relationship is good. When people watch “The Ultimatum,” they see some of the cast members in the bubble. But what are they like in real life? Members of the show have Instagram pages that give us a look at how they are now.
Lauren Pounds told TODAY that she and her co-stars from “Ultimatum” are still in touch with each other. Because we’re going through the same thing, Pounds said, “We have an Instagram group chat where we all talk and support one another.” She said there is no “bad blood” between her and the other people on the show. “The fact that we can all be together and talk is really cool and unique,” she said.
“The Ultimatum” is written by the same person who wrote “Love Is Blind,” so it’s the same person. If “Love Is Blind” is any guide, that means that the show will keep going off-screen, through Instagram comments and interactions.
