‘Glee’ season 5: Blake Jenner, Melissa Benoist join Lea Michele, Cory Monteith as couple

GleeMrs. Carter: The “Glee” rumor mill can finally stop spinning.

While it strangely has not managed to receive a good many headlines just when it comes to the tabloids, there have been whispers for some time that Blake Jenner (who you may otherwise know as Ryder Lynn) is in a romantic relationship with Melissa Benoist (Marley Rose). Ironically, their two characters have had some “will they or won’t they?” moments, but she has opted instead to stay with her current love interest in Jake Puckerman (Jacob Artist).

Nonetheless, this setback for Ryder has not equaled one in any way for the “Glee Project” champion in real life. In a Q&A with fans recently via ET Canada, Jenner discreetly replied “Yup” following a question pertaining to his romantic relationship with Benoist off the show. He did not go into any further details, but it is still pretty easy to be happy for the two! (Plus, it’s nice to see Blake not getting catfished in real life, as well.)

While not everyone is a major proponent of dating your co-workers, this is the second major “Glee” relationship we’ve seen as of late, following of course Lea Michele and Cory Monteith. There were rumors for a while that Mark Salling (Puck) and Naya Rivera (Santana) dated, but they were never confirmed publicly by either of the show’s stars. Now, Rivera is dating rapper Big Sean, and Salling has his private life pretty hush-hush.

The “Glee” cast is currently on hiatus until likely July, when they will get prepared yet again to start up work on 22 new episodes. While Jenner and Benoist have not been confirmed to be back, we suspect it is likely given that the school year at McKinley High is not over yet.
