Season 2 of Perfect Match ended on Friday, June 21, 2024. The Netflix dating show ended with a bang, as (SPOILER) Christine Obanor and Nigel Jones won the competition, resulting in an all-expenses-paid vacation. They also connected on the show before their win, which is supposed to be more important.

Is 'Perfect Match' star Izzy Zapata dating anyone?

As Perfect Match's popularity grew in Season 2, so did its stars. While many of the stars from the season, including Izzy, had decent followings before they joined the season, the show attracted more followers who became invested in their lives outside of the show.

For Izzy, fans wanted him to find a "honey" after failing to go the distance with fellow Love Is Blind stars Micah Lussier and Jessica Vestal. In a June 2024 post, he sent fans into a frenzy when he flaunted his honey, a blonde-haired woman wearing a black monochrome outfit.

"Found my honey," Izzy simply wrote in his caption.

Several fans inquired about the woman in the Netflix stud's comments. Many wondered how they met and fully supported the relationship so long as he was happy. However, those who already followed Izzy's story on Love Is Blind and online had seen and heard of his girlfriend before. In October 2023, he hard-launched his girlfriend, surgical assistant Shelby Webb, on his Instagram account.

Izzy captioned the post of him and Shelby, "It all started with a cooking class..." referencing their first date. It was the second reference to the cooking class, as he shared at the Season 5 Love Is Blind reunion that his ex, Stacy, had also attended the cooking class, causing them to have an awkward double date.
