The final of True Love or True Lies? awaits for both Carrie and Mike and Liv and Louis.

In a shocking final Love Ceremony on Wednesday, August 15th, all of the eliminated couples returned to watch the finalists vote.

It was then revealed that Cameron and Shereece were not only fake, but the latter isn’t straight.

Two couples remain, and who knows what the final could bring. Better prep yourself with some research!

This is everything we know about Mike Pandeli…

The big 25 today ?

Mike has Famous Friends

It only takes a few glances at Mike’s Instagram page to see some familiar faces when it comes to the world of reality TV.

At the Anthony Joshua fight with Geordie Shore’s Sam Gowland and TOWIE’s Myles Barnett, that’s quite the friendship group considering Newcastle and Essex are f*cking miles apart.

Perhaps they all share the same agent?

Who Shot Ya Media

Perhaps a piece of evidence in favour of Carrie and Mike being real is media company Who Shot Ya Ltd.

We have no idea what they do, but the company labels themselves as media/creative on Instagram.

The Instagram account looks like a collaboration of reality TV stars, with Myles, Jack Devlin (Ex on the Beach), ‘girlfriend’ Carrie and Mike all posing on the account in artistic shots.

The first picture was posted in February, so Mike and Carrie definitely knew each other before True Love and True Lies? started.

But on what sort of scale?

New York Together

There are also pictures of Mike and Carrie in New York together, some 13 weeks ago.

Given, we don’t know when True Love or True Lies? was filmed. But, if you were to compare to Shereece and Cameron – who were revealed to be fake – there were no pictures of the pair together around this period.

Instagram Time Gap

Bizarrely, however, there is a huge time gap on Mike’s Instagram account.

He celebrates his 25th birthday on 29th June 2017, before celebrating his 26th birthday one year later – yet, between those dates, there are only 10 photos.

Perhaps the photos him and Carrie were taken down?

26 years young today….. wouldn’t change a thing ! #Everythinghappensforareason

Mike on Twitter and LinkedIn

With a new Twitter account created specifically for the MTV series, there is little we can gather from Mike’s tweets.

At least we know that Mike’s full name is real, after finding him on LinkedIn. He also spent most of his life working as an I.T desktop support analyst – in case you wanted to know!

Final Opinion: REAL

Clearly, MTV had their work cut out trying to hide the real lives of their True Love or True Lies? cast.

However, it was pretty easy to find evidence against the likes of Shereece Marcantonio.

So, on that note, we think Carrie and Mike are real!

True Love or True Lies? Evidence for and against Carrie!
