Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline started dating after ‘Outer Banks’ Season 1 

The chemistry between Sarah Cameron and John B. is undeniable. But fans quickly noticed the chemistry between Cline and Stokes offscreen, too.

When Outer Banks Season 1 debuted on Netflix, the world was shutting down due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A few cast members, including Stokes and Cline, were living in the same apartment building together. All of that time in quarantine allowed Stokes and Cline to focus on their blossoming relationship.

On June 14, 2020, Stokes made his relationship with Cline public. In April 2021, the couple celebrated a year together in an Instagram post. Today, Stokes and Cline are the type of couple to exchange sweet nothings on social media and share steamy kisses at the MTV Movie & TV Awards

Who is Rudy Pankow dating?

Rudy Pankow plays JJ in Outer Banks, who seems to have feelings for Kiara in season 2. But in reality, Pankow is dating Outer Banks crew member Elaine Siemek. Fans first noticed Pankow’s relationship in a since-deleted Instagram post from November 2020 with the caption: “You give me butterflies every day…literally.” 

IMDb lists Siemek as an assistant to Outer Banks showrunner Jonas Pate during season 1. It’s unclear if Pankow and Siemek first met on the set of Outer Banks, but many fans assume that’s where their relationship formed. 

Recently, Pankow addressed Instagram followers who were making assumptions about his relationship with Siemek. “Accusing someone you don’t know of being abusive and manipulative is not ok, especially when you don’t know the relationship personally,” Pankow wrote in an Instagram caption. “I’m very happy in the relationship I’m in.”

Pankow wants those followers who choose to create “displeasure” on his posts to stop. He also admits he doesn’t share much of his relationship on social media because he wants to keep those moments for himself. 

Madison Bailey and Mariah Linney are together

After seeing the UNC Charlotte basketball player Mariah Linney on TikTok, Outer Banks star Madison Bailey started messaging her on Instagram. The two met for the first time in person in June 2020 and have been together since. 

Bailey often posts about her relationship with Linney on Instagram. “I had zero hesitation to post on social media about it because I was like, ‘No matter what happens, you will be in my life forever,'” she explained to Entertainment Tonight. “I care about her so much.”
