Netflix's Perfect Match features reality stars from Too Hot To Handle, Love is Blind, The Circle and more. So let's meet the cast.

Fans of reality TV are in for a treat this Valentine's Day, because Netflix's brand new show Perfect Match brings together some of the biggest stars from the streaming service's previous dating shows in a second attempt to find love.

If you're one of those people who loves to keep up with the cast of reality TV after they leave the screen - asking which Too Hot To Handle couples are still together (opens in new tab) who is still together from Love is Blind (opens in new tab) and checking in on whether successful couples such as Alexa and Brennnon are still together (opens in new tab) - then you're going to love Perfect Match. Let's take a look at the cast...

Perfect Match cast

1. Francesca Farago - Too Hot To Handle

Francesca Farago starred in the first ever season of Too Hot To Handle, which aired back in April 2020.

After much rule breaking, the Canadian finally found love with fellow cast member Harry Jowsey. The pair dated on an off after leaving the show, before calling it quits for good in May 2021.

Since then, Francesca went on to date The Only Way Is Essex star Demi Sims, and also appeared on Love Is Blind: Life After the Altar as Damian Power's date.

Many are surprised by Francesca's appearance on Perfect Match, as it appears she's been in a serious relationship with Jesse Sullivan for the last six months, with Jesse even saying on Instagram (opens in new tab), "I cannot wait to get down on one knee for her."

Fans have concluded that Perfect Match must have been filmed before the pair got together.

2. Chloe Veitch - Too Hot To Handle

Chloe starred alongside Francesca in season one of Too Hot To Handle, and also starred in the 2021 series of The Circle US.

Chloe didn't find love during her time on Too Hot To Handle but she did walk away with a chunk of the prize money, and has stayed good friends with with fellow contestant Nicole O'Brien.

Posing as herself on The Circle, Chloe had a little more success, coming in second place and being crowned 'Fan Favourite'.

Her other reality TV stints include an appearance on Channel 4's Celebrity Ghost Trip, where she was partnered with Too Hot To Handle co-star Nicole O'Brien, and Celebrity Hunted.

Georgia Hassarati is from Brisbane, Australia, and was on season 3 of Too Hot To Handle.

She had an on-off relationship with season one star and Francesca's ex Harry Jowsey since mid 2022, before the pair broke it off for good at the end of the year.

In an interview with The US Sun (opens in new tab) in November 2022, Harry said of his relationship with Georgia: "At the moment, Georgia and I are no longer together, but let me tell you my relationship with her was nothing short of amazing. Georgia is such an incredible human being. She is one of the most amazing people I have ever met, and I am beyond grateful we crossed paths."

Personal trainer Izzy was also on season 3 of Too Hot To Handle. Though she was a finalist, Izzy left the show single and lost out on the prize money to Harry and Beaux.

Bartise appeared on Love is Blind season 3. Although he did make it out of the pods after proposing to fellow contestant Nancy, it wasn't meant to be.

Although Nancy said yes at the altar, Bartise said "I do not", causing Nancy to walk back down the aisle in tears.

Bartise has since said that he feels 'ashamed' watching the show back, but that he doesn't have any regrets.

7. Damian Powers - Love is Blind

Damien Powers had little more success on Love is Blind  than Bartise when he appeared on the first season of the show.

He left the pods with then-fiance Giannina Gibelli, and though they had their ups and downs and ultimately decided against saying 'I do', they did leave the show in a committed relationship.

It wasn't meant to be however, and the couple didn't last. Unsurprisingly, Giannina was unimpressed by Francesca Farago turning up as Damien's date on After the Altar, so it will be interesting to see how the pair get along on Perfect Match.

8. Diamond Jack - Love is Blind

Also on season one of Love is Blind, Diamond split with her fiance Carlton before they made it to the wedding, following a huge fight surrounding Carlton's sexuality. 

After Carlton proposed, he told Diamond that he'd dated men and women before, prompting Diamond saying that she felt betrayed that he didn’t tell her sooner.

And the drama didn't end there for Diamond. Before After the Altar she went on a blind date with the friend of a friend’s boyfriend, Rumeal. Rumeal ghosted her but still turned up to the reunion, and ended up spending the whole night sulking while Diamond chatted to her cast mates.

9. Lauren Chamblin - Love is Blind

Lauren 'LC' also appeared on the first season of Love is Blind, and though she didn't get engaged she did close to Matthew Barnett while in the pods. However, Matthew is now married to fellow contestant Amber Pike.

Though things didn't work out on the show, LC did briefly date one of her cast members, Mark Cuevas, after filming wrapped. Mark had got all the way to the altar with fiance Jessica Batten, before saying 'I don't'.

LC has said in the past that she remains good friends with fellow Perfect Match cast member Diamond.

Shayne appeared on season 2 of Love is Blind. He was engaged to Natalie Lee during the programme, but the pair didn't get married after Natalie called things off in the final episode.

11. Calvin Crooks - The Circle

Calvin Crooks appeared on The Circle US season 3, playing himself. He didn't have much success however, ending up blocked and exiting the show in episode 7.

After being blocked, Calvin picked another player to receive an advantage. He chose Nick, who received a second account and posed as 'Vince'. Vince was deactivated in episode 9, but Nick as himself made it to fifth place.
