Jenna and Zach met on MTV's 'The Challenge.'

If you're a longtime fan of The Challenge, you've probably been following Jenna and Zach's love story from the beginning. The couple met while competing on the reality competition series Battle of the Exes II in 2014. Throughout their relationship, the pair split during The Challenge Rivals III, but rekindled their romance on Invasion of the Champions.

"I always kinda knew she was the one. I just knew I wasn't mature enough when we first met," Zach previously told E! News. "[I admire] her ability to put everyone else's needs above her own. She's patient with me too, very patient. And keeps my life in order."

In December 2019, Zach proposed to Jenna in front of New York City's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. "I was so surprised! We went to see the tree every year since we met and a lot of memories have happened in New York City. I was so surprised and it was so sincere and sweet. I couldn't be happier," Jenna gushed to E! News at the time.

However, the couple hit another bump in their relationship when Jenna competed on The Challenge: Total Madness without her significant other. Fans watched as Zach gave Jenna an ultimatum to "come home" after finding old DM messages.

"Regardless of what I found, we were strong enough to work through it," Zach told host Vernon Davis during the Par1 reunion. "I won't go into it because that's between us."

Jenna and Zach moved past the incident and are seemingly stronger than ever. With their wedding postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the couple's next adventure is becoming new parents.

Congrats again to the happy couple!
