In case you don’t already know, The Ultimatum follows six couples grappling with the decision to marry by…breaking up, dating other contestants, and going forward with a three-week trial marriage with someone new before deciding if they should reunite and get hitched. What could possibly go wrong?
Honestly, a lot. Especially for Rae Williams and Isaiah “Zay” Wilson. So, is the couple still together? Here’s everything we know.
Who are Rae Williams and Zay Wilson?
Rae gave Zae the ultimatum after two and a half years of dating. After meeting in college, the 24-year-old HBCU alum thought she was ready to settle down with the 25-year-old, things didn’t play out that way.
What went down on the show?
After Rae presented her ultimatum to Zay, she ended up hitting things off with her trial marriage partner Jake Cunningham, who signed onto the series with his girlfriend, April Marie. Rae’s connection with Jake resulted in an awkward conversation between her and her OG boyfriend when they eventually reunited. After she explained that she was not ready to be engaged, Zay stormed out and didn’t return all night. “I don’t want to be with you anymore,” she told him the next morning.
“When he didn’t come home, I immediately knew, ‘This is not the man for me,'” she told Insider. “To do that in privacy would’ve been awful. To do that in the situation that we were in, with all that was going on — he just should have came home.”
