‘Big Brother’: Christmas Abbott and Memphis Garrett Move in Together Following Five Months of Dating
Big Brother 22 co-stars Christmas Abbott and Memphis Garrett fell for each other while competing in the All-Stars season and began a relationship shortly following the show. The Florida-based couple has continued hanging out, often uploading pictures and videos of their adventures to social media. Five months after they announced their relationship, the two revealed they moved in together with matching Instagram posts.
Christmas Abbott and Memphis Garrett met during ‘Big Brother 22’
Big Brother 19 finalist Christmas Abbott and BB10 runner-up Memphis Garrett returned for season 22, All-Stars. During the first week, Memphis created a dominating six-person alliance, titled The Committee, and invited Christmas, who agreed to join.
The supergroup went on to win nearly every Head of Household competition, controlling every week of the game. Realizing the alliance had to split up during the triple eviction, Memphis preemptively formed the Wise Guys, with one version of it including Christmas.
However, as the others perceived him as the bigger threat, he was evicted, placing fifth. She joined him in the Jury House the following week.
While in the house, many viewers believed the two, who had significant others at the time, fell for each other, even sharing a kiss under the covers at one point.
They began dating shortly after filming
A couple of months after leaving the Big Brother house, the two announced they began a romantic relationship in a Dec. 1, 2020 E! News exclusive.
They also revealed the news on social media in separate Instagram posts and claimed they didn’t kiss in the house as Live Feed viewers thought. Additionally, the two have noted they ended their respective relationships before dating and insisted they never cheated on their significant others while in the house.
However, they both admitted to falling for each other during the show. Several Big Brother stars commented their congratulations, including BB19 champ Josh Martinez, BB18 winner and season 22 co-star Nicole Franzel, and BB21’s Tommy Bracco.
Around Valentine’s Day 2021, many fans thought the couple split following a cryptic message Memphis posted to Instagram. However, the two both denounced the rumors.
Christmas and Memphis have moved in together
The two have frequently hung out together in Florida, with Christmas making regular appearances on his Morning with Memphis Instagram series.
They most recently vacationed in Mexico, attended Nicole and Victor Arroyo’s wedding together, and spent a day at Disney World with their kids before hinting they took their relationship to the next level with social media posts.
In May 2021, five months after the two began dating, Memphis posted a picture embracing Christmas in front of a house, captioning it, “Tampa life is good,” and tagging his significant other. When a follower asked if he relocated, the Big Brother star responded, “No, just have a house here also.”
Christmas uploaded the same picture but confirmed they moved in together in her caption, writing, “Most people call a house a home, I call him home.” Big Brother 23 premieres on Jul. 7, 2021, on CBS.
