Garrett explained, “We both had to respectfully take care of situations we were in and needed some time. That time apart made me realize I couldn’t be without her.”

He even claimed, “We did not kiss in the Big Brother house, and we were never in the jury house together.” 

Garrett added, “Christmas and I have a relationship that was built from the inside out. Her contagious smile and her unapologetic laugh is what I fell for, and it just so happens she is smoking hot.”
