And usually the side piece and don't find out until later on. But, as you stated, I recently had my heart shattered about like two months ago. Everything was perfect. I thought we were gonna, get married in the future to be honest, and I woke up one morning and was just ghosted. So now I'm just hoping to find someone who wants to get to know me and all my flaws, so I can do the same for them. Okay, Evan! Are there any first impression since that you ve made base all we just heard largest? You Elijah, I almost feel like we might know each other since we're both characters in LOS Angeles. Maybe have in many other, but we probably have maybe bumped into each other at an audition or two. I love that Cody you're from Demo Isla because I grew up in Wisconsin, and so I have a huge thing for Midwest boys and then western people are always the sweetest well perfect. Let's keep this thing moving, then. Now that we've exchanged pleasantries and made our
First, impressions things are about to get personal, Cody and Eliza I'll. Ask him a series of questions that you'll give your answers first and then Evan Europe.

One first, oh gosh, so my love languages touch, which is weird because I'm off of the kind of personal lives to get to know. Somebody is well first but definite. You know that physical attraction and being able to communicate without saying anything is very important to me. Eliza went about you biggest turn on a would probably have to be dominates just because I'm a dominant person, so I made that so over dominate me and Evan. Last but not least, what's your biggest turn on my turn on is a feminine, confident gay mail. Love, there's something that is so sexy about seen a man who, one point you be like. I can't tell if that's a woman or a man or whatever
is doing he's working it. That's my biggest turn on. We love it. Okay! Moving on! What's your go to dish, you cook to impress a date Elijah, I will let you start this. One off my go to dish to cook would probably be fried chicken and macaroni and cheese That's my favorite! So anybody else TAT loves that I love yum. Well, I love that so I bear for. I love you yeah. So let's make some fried chicken and some math. Let's do it, I'm ready Cody. What about you? What's your go to dead, oh homemade lasagna a thousand percent unfortunate vegetarian now, so it does have to be eggplant lasagna, but a hundred percent. sounds phenomenon. I bet it's delicious soda Evan. Last but not least, I would busy that might go to. You would have to be a decorative cheese bored with line there's something that is just so essential about setting up a nice plate for someone that you have come over bill. It was
berries, figs, olives, slices of salami prosciutto galore, absolutely yes, a cheese bored with line is my cup of tea every single day or my cup of wine. I guess you could say here's a fun question. Cody, I'm gonna! Ask you you this one first, what would your stripper name be? Tyson Tyson straight up Tyson yeah yeah eyes, sister back in Dallas us that was my mother. How did you get a lot? The name it was one of my best friend's name, and so he was trying to help me figure and he's like just use my name. I don't care, so I just ran with it. It's honestly a great name. I love it Elijah. What about you? What would your striper name be? Mine would have to be probably sensual because I know how to perform so. I know I can win somebody over just by performing.

name thing so Madonna. I love come on Madonna for Donna. Last question: what's the biggest deal breaker for you in a relationship Elijah I'll? Let you answer this one first, my biggest deal breaker would have to be a lack of interest in me if you're, not all about me. I don't want it absolutely. We are not standing for anyone that is not interested in us in two thousand and twenty or two thousand and twenty one or any year going forward Period Cody. What is your biggest deal? Breaker, I'd have to say poor communication, a lot happens throughout life and if you can't talk about it and figure things out, it's a deal breaker for me, another huge one that is like a major major red flat and Evan. What's your biggest deal, breaker, oh wow, there's so many just kidding I would say my biggest steel, bigger is just someone who doesn't know how to live like if I'm gonna, someone, let's, let's be spontaneous, let's have a good time. Not everything has to be so organize and planners stick in the mud. If I just leap up one morning,
we're going to Canada, Rght. Now I already bought the plane ticket we're going we're just gonna go. I don't know what we're gonna find out there, but I mean life is an adventure, so come on an adventure with me. Well, I can tell you what you'll find out here me I am currently in Canada and I'll see you here the more we talk. I think that I should just be dating you. It sounds like I'm in I'll hit you up with my instagram after this. Did you learn anything about either of the matches that surprise, you yeah. I did and it's kind of nice cause both Cody. And Elijah are very different and it's funny because they're actually on the two different spectrums of types of guys that I, like Eliza pegs me as someone that I would probably see out like a night club and what not probably sitting the patio with his group of friends looking fabulous, I would have the balls to walk up and ask for his name or number Cody. I feel like our problem, He may be like walking down I'm going to like the last book store or something
sound, very, very interesting. I really love the visual that you painted of both of these guys, I'm so excited to see how this continues to go. Alright, Evan things are getting serious. So now it's time to turn up the heat for your one on one with each data, you're going to be playing two truths and a lie, and each match will present two truths and one lie about their past dating history, You have one guest to pick the lie so choose wisely: Evan we're gonna start with Elijah, so that means Cody. We're gonna actually put you into the waiting room and we'll bring you back when it's your turn sounds great. Can't wait: okay, Elijah! Let's hear your two truths and a lie a when I was living with my parents. I once had six outside of their house with the boy I was dating B. I once went skydiving on the first day and cried immediately after we did not go on the second day and see
accidentally sent a new video to an x when it was intended for a person I was dating yikes. Well, I personally hope that is true, but that's not up to me to figure out so Evan we you think scandalous? They all say very true, and I feel like I've experienced all well, except for the sky, the sky one I think well I'm gonna say that one is true because it's out there, but I mean people have some interesting stories. So I think that one is true: I'm gonna say that the first story about you having sex outside of your parents house, is the lie Elijah, which Is it the life was b I once when skydiving on the first day and cried immediately after we do not go on the second day. I was
hoping that one was true. No, I don't cry, I'm not a cry baby, tough guy! I like it. So you had sex outside of your parents house, yes in a car good to know, did you at least have tinted windows, Oh I did not, but it was late at night wow you are wild. Hopefully your parents didn't look out their window no, but I was nervous for the entire time. Trust me: okay, Elijah, we're gonna, put you back into the waiting room and we'll bring you back in a little bit. Okay sounds good. Okay! Now it's time for Cody's one on one Cody.

I've talked to people who are polyamorous in the past, and it's just it's not my cup, my cup of tea, I'm all about trust and stuff, and I there's too many factors in that one hundred plus
Personally, I'm too jealous for that yeah do same edge in one say it: okay, Cody, we're gonna, put you back into the waiting room and I will bring you back in a little bit. I just need to talk to Evan for a second, no proms thanks, bye Evan. What do you think about we want answers, I loved them.
