We can’t post about Dated and Related without covering everyone’s favorite Big Sister, Melinda Melrose. The ever-popular host of the show is a Philadelphia-born NYC resident and professional model and YouTuber. She’s got a line designed to go viral, and a stunning look, for every occasion. Sure, she barely showed up in some episodes and seemed to be having a lot more fun outside the villa than the participants were having in it. But, she at least tried to show concern and support for all the contestants, even when they were at their cringiest and even if all her scripted lines were delivered in an excruciatingly slow way. (Seriously, did they really have to act that surprised every time that lip phone rang?) Here’s the tea on the reality show megastar Melina Melrose.
Melinda Melrose’s Relationship Status & Job
Melinda Melrose’s main asset is her outspoken and seemingly fearless personality. She brings it constantly, to hosting, to showing off her fierce looks, to her makeup tutorials. On Too Hot To Handle Season 2, she did not hold back about the men she was interested in. She actively pursued French model and former basketball player Marvin Anthony and together they won the season despite many ups and downs.
Later, Melinda Melrose dated co-star and TikTok superstar Peter Vigilante, known for his trick of spilling wine on his chest while drinking it. She and Peter’s loud and funny personalities definitely vibed with one another.
However, both men she dated found themselves on the receiving end of her fiery temper on more than one occasion. In both cases, a high-profile fight ended the relationship. Melinda came clean about her split from Peter in a candid video. Currently, Melinda is single.
Melinda works as a YouTube and Instagram influencer, when not hosting Netflix’s Dated And Related, getting endorsement deals with brands.
