Did she compare herself to Megan Fox?

In the pods, Chelsea clicked with 28-year-old software salesman Jimmy Presnell. During one of their dates, the flight attendant told him that she gets told "all the time" that she looks like the actor Megan Fox.

Chelsea hinted at famous connection first, telling Jimmy: "I don't even know if it's (Machine Gun Kelly's) wife or his fiancée." He replied: "You're saying you look like Megan Fox?". To which Chelsea replied: "It's only because I have light eyes and dark hair." Jimmy seemed to get really excited to hear who Chelsea's famous lookalike was, with him telling her, "Can we get married?". He did eventually go on to pop the question, with many fans thinking that Chelsea's nod to the famous actor is what swayed him.

What has Jimmy Presnell said?

Jimmy proposed to Chelsea in the pods sight unseen after his love interest hinted that she looked like the famous actor Megan Fox. However, when the pair finally met face to face, the 28-year-old didn't quite see the resemblance, stating "she lied to me".

Jimmy explained: "She definitely lied to me about some, uh, how she looked. Chelsea told me she looked like Megan Fox. At the end of the day it doesn't really matter. I am very attracted to her. I can work with that."
