It's all over for Mark Jansen and Elena Davies! Yes, you read that right. The Big Brother couple has split after one and a half years of dating.
The television personalities started an affair after competing in the 19th season of the CBS reality show in September 2017.
Mark, who once described Elena as the "future Mrs. Jansen," spoke about their break up in an episode of his podcast Find Your Fortitude on Monday, March 4.
The 45-minute installment titled Losing a Loved One was recorded nearly two weeks after the pair parted ways.
In the podcast, the reality star, 27, said he had followed Elena, 28, to Texas because he had fallen in love with her. He wanted to "start a family, start a life" the actress but he found it difficult when she spoke ill of their relationship in public.
Mark, who is a personal trainer by profession, explained,
I was happy when she was happy. It was really that simple for me. I was happy when she was happy. And so, with that mindset and perspective, hearing constantly that it’s not a fairy tale and I’m far from Prince Charming, it was just a gut shot.
His latest comments on his relationship with Elena are totally different from what he previously told media in February 2018.
Of Elena, the New York native said at the time,
I cannot imagine the rest of my life without her. So, as long as she doesn’t get sick of me, there will be a wedding in the near future.
I love everything about Elena. She is an enigma, she has depth and she challenges me on so many levels. Never in my life have I been this happy.
Mark referenced the breakup on February 27, telling fans on Twitter that it was "unlikely" they would see the pair together.
