Beauty and the Geek 2′s Wes and Cheryl are still together

Beauty and the Geek‘s Cheryl Tenbush, who won the show with her partner Josh Herman, is still dating the geek she met on the show, Wes Wilson. In fact, they “just moved out to L.A. together last week” Cheryl told TV Guide.

Their relationship started long before the events of the Las Vegas episode. Cheryl said, “we had been staying up really late talking [prior to that]. I had a huge crush on Wes after the first night. I don’t know how he felt about me. I think having the makeover kind of gave him a little more courage to pursue his feelings for me.”

Wes said that he is now a hero among his geek friends. “Yeah, when I got back from the show and Cher actually came to visit me in Atlanta, everybody was like, ‘Wow. Wes, you lucky, lucky… ‘ — fill in your own expletive there,” he said.
