Taylor and Joseph, meanwhile, became close friends big brother 24. They started flirting but were torn apart by the split house twist.
Taylor stayed inside for Big Bro Chella. Joseph stayed out at Dyre Fest during the week. He was evicted and unable to say goodbye to Taylor.
They finally saw each other again last night. Taylor said she needed to have a drink with Joseph to find out how much of what other houseguests were saying about him betraying them in the game was true. After the season, Taylor and Joseph announced they were dating.

The couple appeared in an episode of God101 with Chen Moonves. She asked when their flirtation turned romantic.
“Maybe just before we were chained together as Skid and Fancy, and then we’d probably investigate further after that,” Taylor replied. “But I don’t know, Julie, what happened? Someone conspired against us! This crazy twist from the production happened.”
Joseph and Taylor laughed about it. “You know we have to keep our houseguests busy,” Chen Moonves replied. She then asked if her “belief journey” had deepened or changed with their relationship.
“Yes, and I would say absolutely, because of the circumstances that have come up in my life and even with Taylor and I, especially you know,” Joseph replied. “I think to call it a coincidence is just too much – it throws away everything that actually happened. There are just too many cases, the more we spend time together the more I navigate to Big Brother. I think a lot of it came about because of a higher power or because of fate or providence. And there have been many positive and great aspects that have come out of it. And I think a lot of that is due to a higher power just watching and rewarding for doing the right thing and being a good person.”
Taylor answered the same question. She said she was agnostic and then spoke about how her life had changed. “As Joseph said, if you look at all the things I’ve experienced since this summer, honestly, the people I’ve connected with, the conversations I’ve been able to have, this win and the opportunities that have been presented to me have me,” she said. “Yes, some of my hard work is in it. But because of a higher power, many things have to fit together.”
