America Lopez and Cory Wurtenberger — Season 25
Although America and Cory’s dynamic started out as what some Big Brother fans might call a “fauxmance” or a “flirtmance,” their long conversations and cuddling soon transformed into something real. America revealed during a Diary Room confessional that she spent much of the Pressure Cooker competition thinking about Cory.
Many Big Brother fans began to root for the pair, giving them the couple name “AmeriCory.” The duo shared their first kiss in September 2023 and became a bonafide couple soon after.
America and Cory found themselves on the block next to each other in October 2023, and Cory was ultimately sent to the jury house. However, the pair didn’t have to wait long to reunite. One week later, America was the second houseguest voted out during the Double Eviction.
After their respective evictions, Cory and America both told Us they had high hopes for their relationship outside of the Big Brother house.
“I’m very optimistic about our future, and if it doesn’t work out, that’s OK,” said Cory. “But she’s incredible and I can’t go into our relationship [outside the game] being like, ‘Oh no, everything’s going to change.’ … Like, no, she’s great. I think it’ll work out.”
America echoed the sentiment one week later. “I know we’re going to be so solid,” she told Us. “I am so excited to see what we’re able to do outside of here. We made this list throughout the season of different things that we [are] going to do and watch and places we [are] going to go. So, more than anything, I’m just so ecstatic to see him again and to do all of these things together with him.”
