Eleyna and Mika: Are the Fight For Paradise Couple Still Together?

Reality TV shows often thrive on romantic relationships among contestants, some genuine while others are merely for show. In Netflix’s ‘Fight for Paradise: Who Can You Trust?’, the budding romance between Eleyna Caterina and Mika Akalin was evident from the moment they met on screen. Throughout the season, viewers witnessed the ups and downs of their relationship, including moments where they had to choose between each other and their game strategies. Now that the first season has concluded, it remains to be seen how their relationship has evolved beyond the show’s confines.

Eleyna and Mika Looked Out For Each Other in the Show

Eleyna Caterina from Berlin and 20-year-old Mika Akalin from Gladbeck met on the first day of the show when the contestants were welcomed into the villa. While then-25-year-old Eleyna identified herself as a former WAG (Wives and Girlfriends of professional athletes), Mika revealed his occupation as a self-employed tractor driver who rented out covered wagons for events. Despite hailing from contrasting backgrounds, both shared a standard drive to secure the $100,000 cash prize, each with their own motivations. Eleyna aspired to achieve wealth and fame through her abilities, while Mika saw the prize money as a significant aid at his current stage of life.

From the moment they locked eyes, Eleyna and Mika were drawn to each other like magnets. Mika’s playful banter, dubbing Eleyna “Lady Perfect,” sent sparks flying, and Eleyna couldn’t help but blush at his charming antics. As the contestants were whisked back to camp, disappointment lingered, but with each other’s company, they turned the evening into a whirlwind of laughter and playful antics. Running around the campfire, tangling their fingers in each other’s hair, and even sharing a cot for the night, their budding connection was undeniable.

As Eleyna settled into the villa amidst whispers of controversy and accusations of manipulation from the campmates she left behind, Mika remained steadfast by her side. Though he refrained from openly defending her, wary of further fueling the drama, his unwavering support spoke volumes. Meanwhile, Eleyna’s heartache at being separated from Mika was palpable, her longing for him evident in every tear shed. Despite the luxuries of villa life, thoughts of Mika’s hardships at camp weighed heavily on her mind, stirring emotions that threatened to unravel her resolve.

She said she would return to camp, participate in a mission, and bring Mika to the villa if possible. Seeing her reaction, Shima asked Eleyna if she liked Mika. Eleyna admitted to having strong feelings for him but also expressed donut about their age difference and the feasibility of the relationship in the real world. When Mika came to the villa, some other contestants told him Eleyna was not serious about the relationship. Instead of believing them, he asked Eleyna head-on, and she explained that her words were taken out of context.

The couple spent their first night in the villa entangled in each other’s arms. It was a blissful night for them. Eleyna said things were going very well between them, as they shared the same “crazy.” Mika echoed her sentiments, expressing his fondness for Eleyna. “I have a good feeling in my gut with Eleyna,” he confessed with a grin, “Like butterflies, I might say.” Things did get a bit shaky for them once Michael Beciri came into the villa and tried to flirt with her, but she made it clear she’d immediately shut it down. Then came her heartbreak as a non-group game led her beau to decide it would be better for him to be eliminated than return to camp, especially since they’d said they’d always stick together. But alas, since it was at the end stage, they managed to reunite just a day later and made it clear they were actually all in.

Eleyna and Mika Seem to Have Drifted Away

Eleyna Caterina and Mika Akalin will likely always have a soft spot for one another, considering they formed a strong alliance in this once-in-a-lifetime experiment. The fact their personalities meshed well, and they helped develop a tight-knit group dynamic was simply a cherry on top for them. Moreover, since others’ attempts to create distance between the two spectacularly failed, both Eleyna and Mika were able to realize what they shared was a little special, which made them even more inseparable – their togetherness was thus not just strategy; feelings were genuinely involved.

As for Eleyna and Mika’s current standing, while they maintain a social media connection and likely keep tabs on each other’s lives, it’s uncertain if their romantic relationship has endured beyond the show. Eleyna, accompanied by her loyal companion Nero, continues to reside in Germany, and she has since given no indication on whether her reality show beau is still a constant part of her life or not. In fact, neither of them has confirmed or denied anything as of writing.

Coming to Mika, who also lives in Germany, he simply seems to enjoy having quality time with friends and undertaking exotic vacations to places like Turkey and the UK. However, since he has no presence on Eleyna’s social media feed, their bond has likely dwindled. It is unknown whether they’ve transitioned into a platonic friendship or drifted apart entirely, but at least the time they spent together on the show was something they both enjoyed and still have lasting memories of.
