A documentary series that offers couples the chance to decide whether they have found the one they should spend the rest of their lives with.
The season one conclusion of The Ultimatum debuted on Netflix on April 13th, as any fan of the show knows. Fans will have to wait for another season, but they can’t get enough of this one.
Why? Yes, it was a substantial sum. Several pairs renewed their commitment to one another, while others said their final goodbyes, and even a marriage took place on the spot.
People were interested in the candidates from the very first season of this show. We still don’t know how the couple’s lives are progressing or what they’re up to at the moment.

What’s Up with the Cast of “Ultimum?”
This first season of The Ultimatum included six different couples: Madlyn Ballatori and Colby Kissinger, Alexis Maloney and Hunter Parr, Shanique Imari and Randall Griffin, Nate Ruggles and Lauren Pounds, April Marie and Jake Cunningham, and Rae Williams and Zay Wilson.
Indeed, each was fascinating in its own right. A deeper understanding of them would be helpful.
1. Madlyn Ballatori And Colby Kissinger
For Madlyn, 24, and Colby, 25, the realisation that they needed one other again came after they had been apart for some time.
All of us know that when they first appeared on the show, Colby was considering proposing to Madlyn, but Madlyn was confused and didn’t want to get married so soon.
How was the performance, then? They were obviously offered a selection of potential spouses.
Randall and Madlyn were the first of the couples to participate in the experiment on the show. Madlyn and Randall did a three-week trial marriage because, as we all know, there are trial marriages on the show.
And nearly everything went swimmingly, but it turns out that you simply cannot alter the one you were born to be with.
A fierce dispute between Colby and Madlyn ended with the couple reconciling and announcing their pregnancy just three months after their wedding.
That’s correct, that couple tied the knot on the spot. The couple has been through a lot of hardships, but it appears like they’re finally ready to welcome their kid into the world.
In a month, we will be parents, the expectant mother announced. I’m currently 35 weeks along with my pregnancy. Together, we’re taking on the world. They’ve made our lives so much better, and we couldn’t be happier,” she said.
2. Alexis Maloney and Hunter Parr
Some disagreements arose between the soon-to-be weds, causing them to offer an ultimatum. Separate people caught the attention of Hunter, age 28, and Alexis, age 25.
During the experiment, Alexis confessed her love for Colby, but he rejected her.
However, when April selected Hunter’s boyfriend to serve as a marriage trial judge, Alexis wasted no time in declaring her love for him.
A subsequent episode included Alexis showing the girls her engagement ring, marking the official beginning of the couple’s relationship. These two appear to be very much in love at the moment, and their June 2022 wedding is well under way.
The duo looks like they’re having a blast in their Instagram posts. Alexis posted a snapshot to Instagram of herself and Hunter in wedding attire.
3. Shanique Imari And Randall Griffin
Their relationship on the show was tricky because their romance developed nicely throughout the reality show and they assured fans that they would get married in the series finale.
And yet, at the reunion, they all revealed that they’d changed their minds.
While Shanique dated other people, the two eventually got back together, perhaps because they realised they weren’t truly soulmates after all.
It seems as though the couple has never been apart in the past and are currently having the time of their lives.
As Randall put it, “I feel like this relationship refresh is something that we both needed.”
Shanique recently shared the news that she and her boyfriend are still together with the media. We may not be in the same city at the moment because of my job, but rest assured that efforts to strengthen our bond continue unabated.
4. Nathan Ruggles And Lauren Pounds
This couple sought advice from professionals since they were on the fence about starting a family.
Nothing about the wedding plans was discussed on the broadcast beyond the fact that they are engaged. And now the truth is out.
Instagram user Lauren posted a picture of herself and Nathan on a trip, gushing about the good times they had and everything that Nathan had done for her. They’ve set the day for October 1st, 2022 as the day they’ll finally get hitched.
In the pilot episode, Nate proposed to his longtime crush Lauren and wanted to start a family, but Lauren had very other plans. To Nate’s dismay, this continued.
Lauren and Nate have finally come to terms with the fact that they will be parents, and they have decided to have a single kid.
All of society had previously rejected the couple outright, but now that they seem to have found each other’s hearts, they have shocked everyone.
5. Rae And Zay
Despite their age difference, Zay (25 years old) and Rae (24 years old) show that not all love stories end happily. Don’t you think they share a resemblance in their names? The two of them just don’t think alike.
During the course of the experiment, Rae and Jake entered into a temporary marriage, while Zay began dating Shanique. When it was time to make a decision, they broke up right away.
They had promised the audience that they would give their relationship another try once filming wrapped, but it didn’t work out, and they were ultimately forced to choose a choice. At the get-together, Rae let it slip that she’s bisexual and in a relationship with a woman.
At the moment, it seems that Zay is single. He is taking his time to figure out what he wants.
6. Like April and Jake
Jake left his two-year romance with April after choosing Rae for the reality programme, but it turns out that his narrative did not finish with Rae or April.
You may remember one of the many confrontations that April and Jake had on the programme when April saw a video of Rae twerking on Jake’s phone when they were out on a night out. It wasn’t just April who Jake grew irrationally enraged towards.
When the two got back together after some time apart, they both admitted that they had tried to repair their relationship but ultimately failed. April has committed to an older man, and she couldn’t be happier about it.
I’m still here in Texas’s capital city of Austin. According to April, “I decided to give [it] a go, and right in the middle of that, Mr. Right came along and swept me off my feet.” We’ve been together for six months now, and he really ruined my hot-girl winter. She went on.
Jake has apparently thrown in the dating towel for the time being, as he claims to be currently single.
