She was romantically linked to various men, however, we’ll start with her relationship with Harry Jowsey. They met on the set of the show “Too Hot to Handle” in 2019 (the show aired a year later), and it appears that there was an immediate spark between the two.
They quickly fell in love and began their relationship, and although had ups and downs, they managed to stay together until the end of the show. As mentioned, they broke the rule about having sex, however, it seems that this ended up working in their favor.
They left the show as a seemingly happy couple, and first Harry visited Francesca in Vancouver, and then she went to Australia to spend time with him. Their first break-up happened in the summer of 2019, but after eight months apart, they reconciled in February 2020. In April of that same year, they made an appearance on the virtual “Too Hot to Handle” reunion, and Harry proposed to Francesca via Zoom (with a Ring Pop).
They broke up again during the summer of 2020, and Francesca shared in one of her YouTube videos that Harry couldn’t do long-distance relationship anymore. The two reconciled again, but after dating on-and-off for more than two years, Francesca and Harry called it quits, and although they may have loved each other, many of their fans said that it was clear that their relationship became toxic.
Later in 2020, Francesca was romantically linked to Jeff Holm, known as a contestant on the 8th season of the reality show “The Bachelorette”. The two were in a short relationship, and although Francesca said that Jeff would come to meet her family in Canada, this story ended in a break-up.
Francesca and Damian Powers were together on the show “Love is Blind”, and there have been rumors about the two of them dating, however, Francesca stated that nothing happened since he was already in a relationship.
In 2022, Francesca began dating Jesse Sullivan, after they meet during a TikTok live event. Jesse is a transgender dad of a 12-year-old girl, Arlo. As of early 2023, Francesca and Jesse are living together with his daughter and their cat.
