And the CEO of the Garrett Group said he worked tirelessly to create the custom ring. ‘My favorite part was creating her custom engagement ring with my longtime friend and jeweler Adam Campbell.  

‘The entire process was awesome. Adam and I reviewed so many diamonds until I found the perfect one for Christmas,’ he said, also adding that even before the pair met on the All Stars season he ‘felt a cosmic attraction to her.’ 

‘Before I even met Christmas, I felt a cosmic attraction to her. Once we spent 24/7 together for three months, I knew she was the one that I would spend the rest of my life with. I knew I found my twin flame,’ he added. 

Christmas continued to say that their love story was also wild. ‘It’s wild to know Memphis and I fell in love with each other before we even shared a kiss. He’s my best friend, twin flame and brings out the best of me everyday.’
