“You’re road” couple: Are they still together?

by | Feature

There’s a famous adage that depicts love as a force strong enough to defy norms and social structures. It allows us to look beyond age and race, pushing aside even the smallest differences between two people.

Larry, an American national, and Jenny, a Filipina, proved just that.

The couple became famous after being featured in the American reality television show 90 Day Fiance, where couples are given 90 days to decide if they will marry each other, remain friends, or totally cut ties.

It only took one scene from the series to catapult Larry and Jenny as one of the most popular couples not just in the show, but in social media as well.

It was a scene that quickly went viral: after Larry hesitated to eat the lechon prepared by Jenny’s family, the Filipina stormed out, calling Larry “rude”.

A video of the scene made its way online and sparked a buzz on Facebook and Twitter. The video, which was uploaded on Youtube last year, now has over one million views.

The video went viral after netizens poked fun at the Filipina’s mispronunciation of the word “rude” which sounded a bit more like “road”.

More than a year after the reality show was filmed, the next question is: how are Larry and Jenny, the famous “road couple” today? Are they officially together?

The answer? Yes, they are still together. That has been confirmed by Larry himself in a video on Youtube.

In the video, Larry underscored how much he loves Jenny. He also described their partnership as a ‘real, great relationship.”

“We’re just pushed to show the world that we really do love each other. It’s a real, great relationship,” he added.

Despite he American also thanked the public for their support.

“Thank you so much for all the support and all the love. It means so much to me. It pushes me and Jenny to keep on going strong,” the American said.

Larry has been defending Jenny from bashers on Facebook, some of whom were quick to judge and call Jenny names.

“How can somebody be a gold digger if there is no gold to dig,” Larry said in a Facebook post.

Another netizen also defended the Filipina through a Facebook post.

“The joke is on us. We laugh because we think Jenny is a good-for-nothing. But she takes offense. And she speaks her mind. She fights back. We hear her say, “You’re rude! You’re acting like a kid!” Facebook user Mark Angeles said.
