Drew added, “We have what we call our showmances. So over the years, with all the shows we’ve hosted or produced, we’ve got a whole bunch of people.
“And it’s not just one-night stands, it’s people who fell in love, got married, had kids.
“We have some of our designers with our directors or ADs with our construction team, so it’s really cool for us to see how many people are finding love and emotional connection in all of these shows that we’re doing that are all focused on love and emotional connection.’
Speaking to PEOPLE (The TV Show) on Wednesday, Jonathan said he and his brother took credit for the match.
