Cara Maria Sorbello is a Fresh Meat contestant drafted by Darrell Taylor. She has been in a relationship with Paulie Calafiore, a reality television personality from the United States.
Sorbello and Calafiore have been dating for three years after meeting on Final Reckoning in 2018. While there were undeniable sparks between them, it was complicated by the fact that Calafiore was dating Danielle Maltby at the time.

After the film, the couple moved in together, and Calafiore explained their relationship, saying, “We both made mistakes, but I don’t think I was ever really open and accepting of my part in it.” I wanted to put that out there because everything points to you as the bad guy.
