Where the “Ultimatum: Queer Love” Couples Stand After the Explosive Reunion
If you thought “The Ultimatum: Queer Love” wouldn’t be as explosive as the inaugural season of Netflix’s ultimatum dating series, guess again. The all-women and nonbinary people installment of “The Ultimatum” kicked off on May 24 with five couples looking for clarity about their relationships – and whether or not they were marriage material. But by the end of the season finale and reunion, which both aired on June 7, there was much more to consider after a myriad of hookups, breakups, fiery arguments, and unexpected connections.
As suggested in the show’s title, “The Ultimatum” brings couples together who are at a crossroads, with one partner ready to jump the broom and the other plagued with doubt. While one individual issues, of course, an ultimatum about getting married or breaking up, the real twist to the dating experiment is the chosen couples having to swap partners for a trial marriage – a test to see how strong their original relationships are and who wants to explore romance elsewhere.
Each couple – Lexi and Raelyn, Sam and Aussie, Xander and Vanessa, Mal and Yoly, and Mildred and Tiff – risked it all this season after their new connections threatened their pre-experiment realities. While some did agree to take the next step in their relationships in the finale, many of those pairings crumbled following shocking updates at the reunion, which has many viewers wondering who stayed together, who broke up, and where the cast stands with each other after a season of spats.
