Married At First Sight's Jason Engler had tongues wagging after leaving a very cryptic comment on an Instagram post that might hint at a new romance for the self-professed party boy.

Over the weekend, the former TV groom, 35, appeared in a selfie with none other than MAFS season 7 star KC Osborne.

Dating rumours

The cosy snap doesn't appear to be on either party's social media accounts and may have been an Instagram Story that has since expired.

Nevertheless, the pic — which shows Jason in a grey hoodie smiling alongside a crop top-clad KC — was reshared by The Wash on Monday, sparking a flurry of speculation over the pair's relationship status in the comments.

One follower made a less than kind remark about 31-year-old professional dancer KC, writing, "She was at Bondi Junction today. She looks about 45".

Unfazed, construction estimator Jason responded with, "Love myself an older woman," which can be interpreted in a few ways.

One, Jason might just be sticking up for a friend who has also participated in the social experiment that is MAFS. Or, he could be dropping a major hint that he and KC have coupled up.

Flirty comments

If the two were dating, it wouldn't come as a huge surprise. Both Jason and KC have been leaving flirty comments on one another's Instagram posts as far back as the beginning of May.

When KC shared a snap of herself sporting white lingerie on May 10, Jason left a comment jokingly asking her to appear on his OnlyFans account.

The following day, Jason posted a photo of himself with his young niece which saw KC leave a love heart emoji in the comments. Jason replied, "See you Saturday xo," suggesting that the duo were set to meet up that weekend.

It appears as though Jason and KC did spend time together the following weekend as well. Along with the selfie, KC also shared videos of the pair — which were reshared by the So Dramatic! podcast Instagram account — on a walk together and chilling on the couch at home.

Moving on

Jason was, of course, paired with schoolteacher Alana Lister during the most recent season of MAFS. The couple has undeniable sexual chemistry but failed to make it work in the 'real world' once the show ended.

In season 7, KC 'married' Drew Brauer but in a shock twist, ended up with fellow star, Michael Goonan, revealing that they'd been together in secret for the five weeks prior to the finale episode.

KC moved in with Michael (who 'married' Stacey Hampton) so they could isolate during the pandemic together but, five months later in July 2020, the pair had called it quits.

In an exclusive chat with Yahoo Lifestyle, Alana confirmed that it was the controversial leaked video of Jason, along with co-stars Georgia Fairweather and Johnny Balbuziente, making fun of bisexual groom Liam Cooper, that ended their relationship.

KC and Jason have been contacted for comment.
