Too Hot to Handle's Rob has split from Christina and reveals their romance became 'uncomfortable'

Too Hot to Handle stars Christina Carmela and Robert Van Tromp have split following nine-months together, MailOnline can reveal.

The couple, who met last December during filming of the Netflix dating series, ended their romance this week after finding the distance between them difficult to manage, and eventually losing love for each other.

In an exclusive interview, Robert, 30, revealed his relationship with Christina, also 30, who’s a pilot from South Africa, became ‘challenging and uncomfortable’, with the pair mutually deciding to go their separate ways.

Robert told MailOnline: ‘Since Too Hot to Handle came out life has certainly changed a lot and in more ways than one. Having a girlfriend in the public eye has been very challenging.

‘It’s been a mutual decision in terms of parting ways because we both have the same frustrations when it comes to the process, the way the show has happened, and even though I think there maybe potential down the line, in however months or years to come, I feel like in this moment it’s gotten very challenging, and it has pushed us further apart.

‘The relationship felt loving in the beginning but now it’s got uncomfortable.’

Christina and Rob failed to convince Too Hot to Handle producers their romance was the real deal and were booted off the retreat by Lana, the robot that monitors the contestant’s relationship development, and sexual activity.

After leaving the show, which is filmed in Turks and Caicos, Robert took a leap of faith and joined Christina and her family for Christmas in South Africa, an opportunity he says he’s truly grateful for.

Rob revealed cracks in his relationship with Christina began to show after Too Hot to Handle, which challenges sex obsessed singletons to be celibate in paradise and win a cash prize, aired in June. 

He said: ‘Ultimately, it was very easy being together in South Africa, it was seamless, we got on so well and we fell in love. I’m truly grateful for that experience.

‘The relationship was so good and healthy before the show aired on Netflix. As the show has come out it’s been much more challenging in terms of the relationship being under the microscope, distance hasn’t helped, although we’ve been fortunate enough to visit each other, certain arguments have still been blown out of proportion.’  

In a statement posted on Instagram, Christina said: ‘There’s no easy way to go about this, thought I would just break the news to all of you fam.

‘Robert and I have broken up – it was a totally mutual decision and there is no bad blood between us.

‘The pressure of long distance and travelling so frequently has taken its toll; he is an amazing guy and I wish him all the best. Only love, thank you for all the support.’

Christina confirmed she’s bisexual after saying she wanted to kiss co-star Emily Miller, who’s still in a relationship with Cam Holmes after meeting on the show.

The model told MailOnline in July Robert supported her bisexuality and wasn’t ever jealous of her attraction to females.

She said: ‘He’s not at all jealous, he’s so confident; we’re just open and honest the entire time. He’s so understanding, I’m so understanding.

‘We talk everyday, I’m the least jealous person and so is he. Honestly, that’s why I love him so much. Nothing bothers him, which is amazing, I love it. 

‘Even when we’re outside having something to eat and a really gorgeous girl walks past and I’m like ‘wow, look at her’ and he really likes it. We’re just so chilled with that kind of thing.’
