There was a lot of talk about the relationship between Natalie Negrotti and James Huling on Big Brother 2016. Many people thought Natalie was using James to get further in the game. Others thought James was throwing away his game on Big Brother 18 for another girl. Maybe the showmance was real, as Natalie and James were engaged on Thanksgiving? Check out the details below in our Big Brother 2016 spoilers!
We all know that most showmances do not work after the show ends. We have seen exceptions, like Jeff & Jordan or The Brenchels, but most of them fade away once real life hits them in the face. That was definitely what I thought would happen between Natalie and James. It seemed like he was definitely into her and she liked him, but I could see more of a friendship on her side of things.
Maybe I was wrong? It looks like the two spent Thanksgiving together and Natalie shared the big moment on her Instagram account:
As you can see, James got down on one knee and proposed to Natalie on Thanksgiving! Originally, the photo was shared with the caption of Natalie saying yes. She edited it later on and added “to the prank!” Yeah, we all know that James loves his pranks, so this whole thing was a big ol’ prank on us! The friendship continues for them outside of the Big Brother 2016 house, but no engagement for them!
**EDIT – To me, friendship means being friends. I guess you can’t be friends and date, as many readers have pointed out. So, to clarify, James and Natalie have been dating since Big Brother 18 ended. I guess they haven’t been friends though, as friendship was not a good word to use for them. My bad!
