Big Brother 17 fans did not necessarily expect the romance between houseguests Austin Matelson and Liz Nolan to last outside the house. Austin and Liz’s relationship certainly had all the markings of a showmance in the early stages of the season, but these two actually seem to be making a go of this outside the house. The two reunited in Las Vegas over the weekend, with some other BB17 houseguests in the mix, and fans will definitely want to catch up on the latest.
Though Austin Matelson and Liz Nolan live in different parts of the country, at least for now, they are still dating and seem to be doing well with their long-distance romance. Austin, Liz, and her twin sister, Julia, reunited in Vegas heading into the weekend, and Matelson posted a photo of the three together via his Instagram page. They hung out at the Peppermill Fireside Lounge, soaked up rays by the Wynn pool, and Austin and Liz snuggled at the Cosmopolitan.
As the weekend continued, Liz, Austin, and Julia connected with fellow Big Brother 17 houseguest Vanessa Rousso and her girlfriend, Mel, for the Cirque du Soleil show The Beatles LOVE. The group got a private tour ahead of the show, and it looks like some of the group decided to work on making “Austin’s Angels” the hashtag of the night.
The group also took in Fremont Street for some drinks, and later in the weekend, Austin and Liz hit Aria for some couple time and a bit of brunch. Though the BB17 crew did quite a bit as a group, it seems there was plenty of romance squeezed into the weekend for Liz and Austin, too.
While Liz and Austin definitely shared some romantic moments together, Liz and twin sister Julia did their fair share of Vegas sightseeing, as well. On top of all the fun and sightseeing, Austin posted some photos showing him hosting a Freakshow Wrestling event over the weekend as well.
Just where do things head from here for the Big Brother 17 lovebirds? As was previously reported by the Inquisitr, there has been some talk of Liz moving to be with Austin. However, it does not seem that she has moved forward on this plan as of yet.
It seems that despite some rocky times among houseguests during the BB17 season, many relationships have been mended since the finale, and fresh relationships are blossoming. It seems that Audrey Middleton is looking to embrace Las Vegas with Vanessa’s help, as well, though her trip out to Nevada started after Austin, Liz, and Julia had already painted the town red.
Can the relationship between Austin and Liz really go the distance? Some fans are buzzing that this might just be true love, as Austin’s appearance has changed a bit since the show, and BB17 fans wonder if it was for Liz’s sake. At this point, Matelson and Nolan seem to just be having fun and taking things a day at a time. However, the romance does seem to be going well at this point.
What comes next for all of these Big Brother 17 houseguests? As is often the case, some of the BB17 houseguests were tapped for some quick appearances on fellow CBS show The Bold and the Beautiful. Jason Roy already made his debut recent and, as Entertainment Weekly details, James Huling, Meg Maley, and John McGuire will pop up during the Halloween episode.
Will Liz Nolan and Austin Matelson’s dating lead to something more lasting and permanent? For now, Big Brother 17 fans will have to stay tuned to see if the two continue to keep things long-distance or end up making a move to be together round-the-clock.
