Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have been singled out as the young celebrity couple most likely to announce their engagement next. Who is making this prediction? It’s a gambling company called Betway. It seems some people will bet on anything.
Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle are also in this unusual race, according to the Mirror. So are Irish folk singer Ed Sheeran and his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.
While Zayn Malik, it seems, is most likely to take a knee for Gigi Hadid first, perhaps followed closely by Prince Harry, there are long shots in this race to the altar.
Justin Bieber and his girlfriend Hailee Steinfeld, as well as Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn, are not exactly in it to win it, but they are possibilities to be considered. Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran are far more likely winners, though, according to Betway.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are apparently the safe bet at 5/4 odds, according to Betway’s Alan Alger.
“At 5/4, the power couple of Zayn and Gigi look set to be the next celebrity couple to walk down the aisle.”
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s odds are much better than the other two top contenders. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are next followed by Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn.
Prince Harry is currently at 3/1 odds with his girlfriend Meghan Markle. That really says a lot about how sure Betway is that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are not only destined for the altar but soon.
Prince Harry has reportedly asked the Queen for permission to propose to Meghan Markle. While royal weddings take a long time to plan, it seems that since this is about who is going to pop the question first. Prince Harry would seem to be ahead of the game.
Still, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are far and away the most likely, according to Betway, who seem pretty sure of their prediction. Those odds are better than Secretariat got in the 1973 Kentucky Derby at 1.5/1, otherwise considered 3/2, according to Quora. Anyone who ever saw that great horse run before would have known that was a sure thing.
Are Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid a sure thing? What about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are beating the odds so far though. Apparently, there is no ring on Gigi Hadid’s finger yet, but are wedding bells in the near future for the fashionable power couple?
Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn are at 7/2 odds to be the next engaged couple, while Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are at 10 to 1, but the real longshot is Justin Bieber. Odds are only 25/1 that he will be asking for the hand of Hailee Steinfield.
Can Zayn Malik drop to one knee faster than Prince Harry can say “will you?” Zayn Malik has just been given odds better than the fastest horse since Man of War. If Gigi Hadid says yes, some safe betters might make a little cash, not that it’s going to pay off big at those odds.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are people, though, not race horses, and this might seem a bit weird, even really crass, but people do bet on the strangest things sometimes. The point is that people who lay odds on just about anything can get really good at making predictions of all kinds.
Will Prince Harry beat Zayn Malik to the finish line? Will Gigi Hadid and/or Meghan Merkle say “yes”? Team Malik and Hadid may be the favorites but Prince Harry might have the advantage.
If Zayn Malik beating Prince Harry to the punch still seems a bit unlikely, even as much as everyone knows he loves Gigi Hadid, then maybe, they have One Direction only bets. It’s pretty certain Zayn Malik will get married before Harry Styles, who seems to be married to his work right now.
