Zay Wilson Bio, Parents, Height, Job, Age, The Ultimatum

Meet Zay Wilson, one of the stars of The Ultimatum, a new Netflix reality show. He appeared alongside his partner Rae Williams. Colby & Madlyn, Shanique & Randall, April & Jake, Nate & Lauren, and Alexis & Hunter are the other couples who will be joining them. At the time of filming, the majority of the couples had been dating for less than three years but are ready to take the next step. Their respective spouses, on the other hand, aren’t ready to commit for a variety of reasons. As a result, each of the show’s cast members issues The Ultimatum to their respective partners: marry or leave.

On 3 March 2022, Zay announced, “Can we just have a good time? Are you ready for this wild ride? See you guys on April 6 on Netflix!💍 @ultimatumnetflix @netflix @strongblacklead”.

The Ultimatum: Are Rae Williams And Zay Wilson Still Together?

Zay Wilson and Rae Williams dated each other for two and a half years. However, Zay received an ultimatum from his girlfriend stating that she wanted to start a life she’d always dreamt of with him. But, Zay doesn’t seem quite ready for that yet.

Zay believed neither of them was ready. He made it clear that not only that they were not financially stable, but he also shared that Rae had problems showing her feelings in support of his position. Later, Zay did admit that he saw a future with the woman he’d been with throughout college, implying that it was only the chronology and the problems they’d encountered that had kept him from doing so, hence, they signed up for the show.

After splitting, Zay and Rae appeared to enter the controlled dating scene. While Zay found a spark with Shanique Imari, Rae connected with Jake Cunningham. They felt jealous, guilty, and even sad at times because of the (good) way things were going with these new connections.

Rae and Jake, on the other hand, were definitely bonding on a deeper level. This young pair accomplished everything, from sharing a lot of interests to exposing their deepest desires, and from having an emotional bond to sharing more than a few kisses.

As a result, when Rae and Zay rejoined, it was unpleasant for both of them, especially since he’d built a different kind of relationship with Shanique. They did cuddle on the first night with no problems, but as time passed, the fissures in their relationship widened, and neither of them held back from chasing their happiness.

Zay had finally admitted out loud that he was ready to commit to his partner for real, but Rae was no longer on board — she booted him out, and he walked away, never to be seen again that night. He had every right to be angry, but at 2 a.m., all Rae wanted was for him to pick up her phone calls, react to her texts, or switch on his GPS to let her know where he was and if he was okay. However, he did not, and when he returned at 8 a.m.

“I was so pissed when he came home [that] I literally punched him,” Rae said in a confessional. “I don’t want to do this I just want to be done,” Rae said during their break-up. She added, “I just want to go home.”

Zay met up with his experimental partner, Shanique, shortly after the split to discuss their relationship, while Rae saw Jake. Rae was eager to rekindle his friendship with Jake, but he was also ready to take his relationship with April seriously. During their meet-up, Zay and Shanique, on the other hand, got into a fight.

He effectively tried to force her to stay by latching on during her attempts to flee the flat, which evolved into a fight. Rae hit him after begging him to let go a few times, and things calmed down, only for her to call it quits because she understood this wasn’t them.

Zay’s following attempts to persuade his then-girlfriend to open up or even look at him failed, and when she made it clear that there was no turning back, he said his final “I love you” before leaving.

So are they together after the show?

The Texas natives have never reconciled, meaning that they are no longer together, according to their online presence. Regardless, the HBCU graduate and the model/social media celebrity look to be happy for the time being, which is all that matters.
