It appears Stephen McHugh and Julia Rose are still going strong. One week after seemingly confirming their relationship to the world, the “Are You the One?” Season 4 star posted some steamy shots of his MTV co-star on social media over the weekend.

Stephen kicked off the weekend by sharing a post of himself topless on Friday. While Julia isn’t visible in the shot, arms can be seen wrapped around his stomach and chest. The caption “Amore” with a rose emoji had some fans guessing Julia was involved in the shot.

After posting several tweets about “women with a vision” and declaring his “love” for an unnamed person, Stephen posted an even steamier photograph Sunday. “People around you should really have nothing to say… Me, I’m just proud of the fact that you’ve done it your way,” Stephen wrote. The comment was accompanied by a photo of Stephen which put Julia’s backside on full display in a dressing room mirror.



Following the “Are You the One?” Season 4 finale on Aug. 15, Stephen and Julia, who were confirmed to not be a perfect match on the show, appeared in a since-deleted YouTube video together to discuss the drama surrounding their romance. After it was revealed Julia had a boyfriend back home during filming, she apologized for the hurt she caused then-partner actor/singer Clayton Johnson. While the co-stars didn’t confirm they were officially an item then, their appearance on YouTube’s AfterBuzz on Aug. 22 solidified they’re dating.

During the interview, Julia commented their relationship isn’t perfect and said they are taking it “one day at a time,” while Stephen admitted he’s definitely in love. 

“I learned so much and I did make mistakes. I’d be the first to say I make a s--- ton of mistakes but it is because of those mistakes where I’m sitting right now,” she said. “Those decisions led me to this spot right here right now and I can’t take any of them back and I wouldn’t.”

“She can make a thousands mistakes,” Stephen later added after sharing a kiss with Julia. “She made one right decision.”
