It’s been more than three months since Us Weekly reported Blake Jenner (Ryder) and his Glee co-star Melissa Benoist (Marley) got engaged. Neither actor has addressed the rumors, so we still have no idea if the report is true. But something Blake said in a recent Fox YouTube video makes us pretty suspicious that they might just be engaged after all.
On October 30, Glee released two YouTube videos that show Blake and Melissa asking each other questions in the FOX Lounge. The silly videos are full of jokes. Nerf guns are everywhere. It’s fun, goofy entertainment but it also gives us a look into the couple’s real-life relationship, which is something we don’t often get to see.
Watching the videos, it’s clear that Blake and Melissa are a whole lot more than just friends. He sings to her. She tells him she loves his smile. They giggle and joke constantly. They even hold hands at one point. It’s adorable.
But they’ve already confirmed they’re dating. It’s just this whole engagement thing they don’t open up about. So what did Blake say that raised our suspicions? It all starts off with a round of rapid-fire questions: Chocolate or vanilla? Puppies or kittens? Monkeys or baboons?
Then comes the kicker. “Bad robot or good robot?” Melissa asks him.
Blakes response is this: “Uh, probably good robot. I’d love to have a good relationship with a good robot.” “A meaningful one,” Melissa interjects. “A meaningful one,” Blake agrees. “Like, I want to be able to talk to...yeah. I want to grow old with this robot.”
Melissa’s looking right into his eyes, and she starts to blush. She giggles and turns her head to the side sheepishly.
Look, we realize that nothing about this is definitive proof. But in this goofy, unscripted moment — when Blake and Melissa were saying the first things that popped into their mind, no filter, no reservations — his mind immediately goes to talking about wanting to spend the rest of his life with her a female robot.
What do you think: Is Melissa the Eve to Blake’s WALL-E...or are we simply reading waaaay too far into this? Head below to the comments and sound off.
