By now, we’re all aware that Netflix is one of the biggest and best networks when it comes to producing original content. First they found success with true crime docuseries, capturing the attention of the world with Making a Murderer.  Then they headed over to the world of TV drama with hits such as Orange Is the New Black and Narcos. Now, they are proving that reality TV is their next big thing.

This year alone, we’ve seen Netflix find major success with hits such as Love Is Blind and The Circle US. And now they have a new entry to the fold: The Big Flower Fight.

This competitive series takes on the world of flower arranging and flips it on its head. This is not some simple contest to see who can best place a bunch of flower; it sees the contestants create giant structures with some pretty out-there briefs.

But who are the contestants taking on The Big Flower Fight? We found them on Instagram!

Andrew and Ryan

Andrew Whittle and Ryan Lanji were a couple at the time of filming, but now are just good friends. We’re hoping it wasn’t The Big Flower Fight which split up this couple!

They both now live in London, although Ryan is originally from Vancouver, Canada and Andrew is from Lancashire. Both men work in creative industries, in art and fashion.
