Warning: Too Hot to Handle Season 5 Spoilers Ahead

At the end of Too Hot to Handle season 5, Louis Russell made his feeling about dating Christine Obanor clear. They also clarified that they were not boyfriend and girlfriend.

So are the on-screen couple dating in real life?

Louis Clarified They Were Not Boyfriend and Girlfriend

Christine and Louis formed a pair at the start of season 5 and had agreed to spend the first night in bed. But Louis changed the team and coupled up with Hannah Brooke and slept with her.

Well, Hannah then broke up with Louis when Christine got back with him, and they shared a smooch at a beach. Then in a turn of events, Louis got together with Linzy Luu when she chose him for a date.

While Louis had told Christine that nothing had happened on the date, Linzy admitted to the group that she felt a sexual connection with him during their date. This made Obanor wonder what happened on the date to make Linzy feel that connection.

Eventually, Obanor learned the truth, and she got angry not just because Louis had broken her trust but also because he also made her feel bad for not trusting him.

Also, when they finally talked at the party that night, instead of apologizing, Louis became defensive, and hence she broke things off with him.

Then, when Louis was offered $25K to leave the show without Obanor or stay and commit but lose the chance to win $100K, Louis chose to stay with Christine. They remained together by the end of the finale.

Also, as per Style Caster, Louis told Obanor that he wanted to date her but made sure to clarify that they weren’t a boyfriend and girlfriend.

Is Louis Still Her Boyfriend?

According to Marie Claire, Obanor and Russell are no longer dating, and things might have ended on a dramatic note. Before the finale, he followed her on Instagram, but she didn’t follow him back. Furthermore, as of July 31, 2023, they didn’t follow each other at all.

However, Christine has uploaded about Louis is a video on her TikTok. The video contains the question, “What are you and Louis going to do in the private suite?” Well, Christine perfectly lip-syncs over the audio of Miranda Cosgrove saying, “Probably [expletive].”
