Are Janet and Jason of ‘The Good Place’ Dating In Real Life? Find Out Manny Jacinto and D’Arcy Beth Carden’s Relationship Status
Janet and Jason are one of the most unlikely couples on The Good Place. Despite the fact that Janet is not a human, the two of them somehow fell in love and continue to have feelings for each other. In fact, they seem to have such good chemistry that there is no doubt many fans out there who wonder if the actors who play them — D’Arcy Beth Carden and Manny Jacinto — are actually dating in real life. Here’s what we know.
Janet and Jason’s love story on ‘The Good Place’
When we first met the characters of The Good Place, Janet was introduced as an all-knowing personal assistant who is neither a robot or a human. Meanwhile, Jason was one of the main humans that the show would follow. He was a foolish DJ from Jacksonville, Florida, who was mistaken for a monk in the first season.
Initially, Jason was paired up with Tahani (Jameela Jamil) as “soulmates” in the afterlife. However, once Jason revealed to Tahani that he was not actually a monk, she was slightly disappointed.
This incident led Janet to comfort Jason, and he soon realized that he had feelings for Janet and decided to marry her. It turned out that Janet had feelings for Jason as well, but she was confused by her emotions because she was not supposed to be experiencing them. However, the two of them broke things off when Jason and the other humans had their memories rebooted.
Janet and Jason briefly dated again in season 3, but by the beginning of season 4 they had broken up once more. At this point, it’s not clear what the ending will be for the couple, who are one of the most popular pairings on the show.
Are Janet and Jason of ‘The Good Place’ dating in real life?
Although Carden and Jacinto have great chemistry on screen, they are actually not dating each other. In fact, their personal lives are flourishing but with other partners. That said, it seems that the cast members of The Good Place are close to one another, so there is a good chance that Carden and Jacinto are friends off-screen.
Is D’Arcy Beth Carden single?
Carden is married to producer Jason Carden. The two of them met sometime in the 2000s while working on a play together. In 2010, they got married. Then, they moved from New York City to Los Angeles in 2013. The couple does not have children, but they raise a dog named Penny together.
Is Manny Jacinto single?
While Carden has been married for several years now, Jacinto is on his way to becoming a newlywed. He proposed to his girlfriend, actress/dancer Dianne Doan, very recently.
It actually took Jacinto a while to pop the question. He revealed that he thought about it for a long time until he got a sign from The Good Place.
“I looked at the Janet/Jason relationship, and there’s a sentence that Jason says to Chidi about relationships and it hit me pretty hard,” Jacinto shared. “I thought it was a sign that I needed to do it, and a week later I popped the question.”
The proposal was also carefully planned. Jacinto took Doan to a few places that were meaningful for them, such as where they first met, where they went on their first date, etc. He said: “I had these canvas things written down with a message saying why the places were important to us. At every location I had her close her eyes, I’d hold up the canvas, and she would open her eyes.”
At the final location, Jacinto popped the question in front of their family members, and Doan said yes.
