We’re talking about Priya Yoshikawa. She and her fellow contestants will travel to a beautiful location and meet each other’s families before deciding whether to separate or marry in the final episode. The 11-part show will be released over three weeks.

Are Priyanka Yoshikawa And Mizuki Still Together?
Priya or Priyanka Yoshikawa initially showed interest in Wataru. But, Wataru chose Midori and Mizuki ended up stealing the heart of Priyanka. They had already interacted a few times before and had developed a good connection with each other. Mizuki recognized Priya by her sweet smooth voice.
Initially, they spoke casually, but Mizuki took his chance and opened up the doors for deeper connections. Priya was comfortable with Mizuki’s advances and also reciprocated it back. They discussed profession and romantic expectations, but more importantly, they also talked about how they would balance their family with both of them being entrepreneurs.
Because Mizuki wasn’t looking for a housewife, Priyanka’s independent nature and feminism helped create a strong bond together. Priyanka was very glad to know that because she loved what she does. They went together through different challenges they’d faced in life to understand each other more.
Mizuki then got down on his knees and said, “From the moment we met, I’ve deeply admired you… I truly respect you… I think that with you, Priya, I can overcome anything… Will you marry me?” Priya gladly accepted the proposal.
Even though Mizuki and Priya started strong after meeting face-to-face for the first time, an encounter that generated no concerns because they found each other extraordinarily attractive, fractures in their relationship began to appear gradually. During their double date with Misaki and Karou, she not only found him pretentious, but she also began to wonder if he could truly make her happy in the long term.
Yes, their connection and willingness to work things out were always there. However, based on what we’ve seen on their social media platforms, it appears that wasn’t enough to get them going.
One hint that they might not be together anymore is they don’t follow each other on social media. There is no ring on the fingers of both and are kind of living very different lives. So, it is likely they aren’t together.

She had proudly announced, “We are Japanese. Yes, I’m half Indian and people are asking me about my ‘purity’ — yes, my dad is Indian and I’m proud of it, I’m proud that I have Indian in me. But that does not mean I’m not Japanese.”
The Japanese beauty had been bullied because of her ethnicity in school. She shared, “We have problems, we’ve been struggling and it hurts. When I came back to Japan, everyone thought I was a germ. Like if they touched me they would be touching something bad. But I’m thankful because that made me strong.”
Priyanka also explained, “There was a time as a kid when I was confused about my identity. But I’ve lived in Japan so long now I feel Japanese.” The Indian embassy in Tokyo congratulated Priyanka on her victory, which entitles her to represent Japan at the Miss World contest in Washington in December.
