There is a level of friendship that can only develop after living in a house with 20 other women all vying for the heart of the same dude as you.
While they both originally competed for the love of season five’s Matty J since their rose-less exits, it appears Florence and Simone found soul mates of a different kind: the brunching, inseparable, friendship kind.
Pancake-aficionado Simone told Cosmo that Flo is “hilarious.”
“Sometimes I wouldn’t get what [she] said — she’s very abrupt. But honestly, she’s gold.”
“Every time I see one of the girls, it feels like seeing a sister,” the Dutch model told Pop Sugar after her elimination.
“It’s amazing, seriously, they make me so happy. When I meet up with Lisa, Elise, Simone or Laura, I’m pumped to see them — it’s just such a strong connection.
“I think we all did find love — it sounds really cheesy and cliché, but you find friends for life. It did surprise me that you can develop real friendships on a show like that.”
And just like that, two women who went into a house looking for a boyfriend, left with something equally precious instead.
