Ultimatum stars Alexis Maloney and Hunter Parr are officially married.
The couple, who made a brief appearance on the Netflix dating show alongside Madeline Ballatory, Colby Kissinger and Ray Williams, walked down the aisle over the weekend.
They famously took part in an experiment to decide whether or not to hook up with each other and break up, but decided to end their time on the show early when Hunter got down on one knee.
They reportedly tied the knot at the Wayfarer’s Chapel in California on Saturday, surrounded by their loved ones.
“We are so excited,” the 27-year-old bride said ahead of their big day. “Finally, I will become a wife! I can’t wait to start this chapter with Hunter where we can start a conversation about “Do we want to start a family? Do we want to live in California forever? Do we want to put down roots here?
“It’s not about Alexis anymore. This is Alexis and Hunter. This is the most interesting thing for me that we all do together … hard times will come, but I have it.
The series follows six couples on the verge of marriage as they are forced to decide whether to commit to each other or break up.
Of course, it was a TV show, so things weren’t that simple: The couples were separated and set up to date – and live with – another partner for three weeks before returning to their original couple to make a decision.
Alexis and Hunter decided to leave shortly before the experiment actually began, with the groom choosing an acting dinner to propose.
At the time, their colleagues raised questions about the move, but the lovers are glad they left and worked on their relationship behind closed doors.
Alexis, who offered an ultimatum to her current husband, continued to People magazine: “You could see that I came in wanting to marry Hunter from day one. It was a real struggle for me when I couldn’t communicate with anyone else, but it confirmed my love for Hunter. I want to be with him. And I’m very happy that we got engaged and now we can live our lives.”
“We immersed ourselves in this experience. All we could do was try to do it our way and be as real as we are,” the groom agreed. “Our journey resulted in us giving up the experience early. … So I have no regrets because we both stayed true to ourselves and tried to be the best we could be. And the way it ended was just a natural conclusion to it.”
“Family is so important to both of us,” he added, speaking of children with his new wife. “When we think about the future and our ability to build what we believe should be our family, [we’ll have to figure out] what values we should instill in our children or traditions that we will have, that we will share.
