Since the start of Big Brother 25, houseguests Cory Wurtenberger and America Lopez have seemingly been attached at the hip. The two instantly bonded over their love for the reality show and developed quite a strong connection that others believe to be a budding showmance. But, is it actually a showmance?

So, are Cory and America in a showmance on 'Big Brother'?

Although they're calling it a "faux-mance," Cory and America are slowly forming a real showmance. The duo purposely downplays their connection to others, but it's obvious an actual spark is starting to form.

America even told fellow houseguest Izzy Gleicher that she's starting to develop real feelings for Cory! However, Cory previously mentioned that their age gap is an issue — he's 21, while America is 27. Nevertheless, it doesn't seem to be that big a problem since Cory flirts and cuddles with America any chance he gets.

The pair often hang out and cuddle at night, joking around with each other. Cory once joked that he would tell the rest of the house that he and America went "all the way" and "sealed the deal."

The two have yet to get physical, as both of them have set boundaries and discussed how far they're willing to go with each other. America is all for kissing, but Cory only wants them to cuddle (they haven't even held hands!)

But wait, did Cory and America hook up on 'Big Brother'?

OK, we know we said that Cory and America haven't been physical — but viewers think the opposite. During the early hours of September 7, some fans caught the two getting quite close on the live feeds. They now sleep in the same bed every night, but this time around, they were seen rustling under the blanket together.

Wait, does this mean Cory and America hooked up? It's a possibility, but we highly doubt they did anything because of their strict rules. But sometimes, the temptation is too good to pass up, and there's a chance Cory and America shared a kiss or two under the covers.

It's almost important to note that Cory and America were in a fight prior to their late-night rendezvous. She was angry because he wasn't telling her anything game-related, and was very annoyed that Cory didn't include her in an alliance meeting. It was a last-minute thing, but America thought Cory left her out of the loop on purpose.

Eventually, the two made up — and that's when the "rustling" started. America also told Cory that he's growing on her, so at this point, there's a likely chance they're going to forget their boundaries and embrace their feelings.
