That was great, but we made a decision together that we wanted to keep it a secret from our family and friends. We just thought that it was kind of a once in a lifetime experience,” Heather told Reality TV World. “This whole thing is new to us and unlike anything we’ll ever do in our lives again. So, for us, it was fun not telling our family and friends so they can really experience it and we get to experience it all through their eyes. For me, I had a great time kind of torturing my family I guess.”

However, Miles asked to couple with Heather at the end of the third competition and they remained together after that. “Miles has a really good balance about him. He’s funny. He’s sweet. I just feel like I can completely by myself around him. I don’t often fall for guys, but when I do, I definitely fall hard,” Heather said while on the show.
