5 Are they still together?

When Alex and Caroline left Paradise, they dated for a few months. Unlike the Australian contestants, they were able to go on dates in public and allow their relationship to develop naturally. Unfortunately, after a few months, they broke up. It was an amicable breakup. Alex told Mamamia: “When we left, we dated for a few months but unfortunately we ultimately decided that we weren’t going to pursue it. We still maintain a friendship, we speak on a weekly basis but there’s no more romantic involvement. For us, I don’t think it was that dramatic. Our relationship was very effortless, even from that first interaction. When we left things actually got better,” he said. It was a lot more fun, there was a lot less stress and pressure and no cameras around. We saw each other a couple of times, I flew down there. Things were great, and I think it was a very easy transition for us.”
