Entertainment The Ultimatum’s Jake and Rae Reveal How Far They Took Things on Season 1
'High interest' in Canadiens winger Artturi Lehkonen?
Lehkonen has spent his entire six-year career with the Canadiens who drafted him in the second round (55th overall) back in 2013. He scored 18 goals in his rookie season but has failed to reach that mark since then, but he has 13 in 57 games this season. However, he has become a very valuable defensive winger who plays on both wings and can play up and down the lineup while logging heavy minutes on the penalty kill. He played that role in Montreal’s playoff run last season while also scoring the series winner against Vegas to send them to the Stanley Cup Final. At $2.
When it comes to new pairings on season 1 of The Ultimatum, it’s safe to sayand had the strongest connection.
“Jake and I, you know, we had a strict rule as far as physical things went,” Rae told Us Weekly exclusively ahead of the Wednesday, April 6, premiere of the new Netflix show. “I kissed him a lot. I was one who initiated kissing with him, but we didn’t take it past kissing. And that was really important to both of us.”
Rae, for her part, joined the reality series with Zay Wilson, issuing an Ultimatum for him to propose. Jake’s partner, April Marie, meanwhile, was also ready to get engaged, but he wasn’t. As part of the show, the couples found new partners for three-week trial marriages before reuniting with their OG significant other to make a decision about their future. According to Rae, she and Jake “definitely both felt guilty” about their chemistry on the series.

“The whole time that you’re going on these romantic dates and you’re connecting and you’re living with this person living your day-to-day life with them — in the back of your mind is always the jealousy that you have toward your original partner and what they’re experiencing,” she told Us. “And then just the guilt for, like, sometimes [I’d] get really happy and I’d be like, ‘Oh, I’m so happy right now. I love hanging out with this guy. I can’t wait to go home and cook dinner with him and watch a movie and do whatever.’ And then I was like, ‘I should not feel like this.’”
Jake, for his part, confirmed to Us that the twosome didn’t cross the lines set by April and Zay.
Senators expected to sign 2020 No. 5 pick Jake Sanderson 'in coming days'
There's a chance Sanderson could make his debut with the club before the end of the regular season.The Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch reports that the 2020 No. 5 overall pick is expected to sign his entry-level contract in the coming days. Sanderson may only be 19, but he has little left to gain from the college level. With 26 points in 23 games, Sanderson was not only one of the top scorers for the Fighting Hawks but one of the NCAA’s most productive defensemen. That doesn’t even speak to his top-notch defense either, which may be an even stronger part of his game than his offense.
“I didn’t wanna do the show, so going on and having to do that experiment and me still sticking to her guidelines that she wanted — like, she’s the one that wanted to do it. She’s the one that wanted to experiment around and see all this. So honestly me and Rae were very respectful doing the whole situation,” he told Us. “No matter how it looks, we did not have sex. The only thing we did was kiss. I slept in a separate bed for the first five days on the show.”
He added: “So honestly, I was very respectful. … April was doing a lot more than I was. So at that time, I felt OK about what I was doing.”
Jake also told Us that he didn’t agree to shoot the series until the “last minute,” implying that April wanted to go on the show for notoriety.
“I think it was more for the fame. … She loves social media. I like to keep my life private. That’s a big reason why I didn’t want to do it,” he said. “I don’t know if a lot of people know this, but I did have an engagement planned out for her before we [did the show]. I wasn’t gonna tell her because it was supposed to be a surprise.”
Season 1 of The Ultimatum is streaming on Netflix. Fans will have to tune into the finale and reunion to see where Jake and April and Rae and Zay stand now.
