Big Brother 17: Liztin Is No More As Liz Nolan & Austin Matelson Breakup [PICS]

Liztin is over, says Liz Nolan in a Twitter announcement to her fans revealing the once fauxmance turned showmance turned real world relationship between Big Brother 17 Houseguests Liz and Austin Matelson has come to an end.

Writing to her fans, Liz explained, “Thank you for following Austin and I on our crazy/incredible/special journey, & as we navigated life outside the Big Brother house. Unfortunately, yes, Austin and I ended the relationship. I have nothing but the utmost respect and love for him, and just as our #liztin romance began in the BB house- we started out as friends and I hope we can remain the same.”

A quick scroll through Austin’s Twitter shows they were still hanging out and chatting up Liztin up to two weeks ago, so the breakup may have been fairly recent. Since then Austin’s postings seem focused on something called his “Creamboy Project.” Hmm. Anyway, perhaps the breakup was mutual and they’re on their way to staying friends. Though to their credit, they lasted longer than I expected and that expectation began with never believing they’d actually start in the first place.

And just to think, Austin cut off the chin-ponytail and “ruined my life for you!” Well, Big Brother 18 and the next batch of showmances are never too far away. Farewell, Liztin!

  1. I’ll agree with the “author” on this one. I’ll graciously agree that they lasted longer than anyone would have imagined. 100 kool kid points to Liz and Austin. They’ll have to share those though

  2. You got your info wrong. Both Liz and Austin said Liz broke up with him. She said it in some interview red carpet video on youtube. It wasn’t mutual, and a quick look at his twitter likes appears he wants to get back together.

    • Nope, my info isn’t wrong. I didn’t claim that it wasn’t Liz who broke up with Austin. I said “perhaps it was mutual.” Nor did I claim he didn’t want to get back together. I said maybe they could be friends as Liz said in her note that she hoped they could.

      As for Austin’s Twitter account, I said they were still posting about being together just a few weeks ago, which they were. Matter of fact, I see nothing in his Tweets or replies about his feelings on the breakup or his wants. But okay…

      • You missed his interview annoucning the break up on Sports Radio where he went over it and Liz’s interview from TMZ where she said she broke up with him but they might rekindle it one day. Both clips are on youtube. I was only clarifying.

  3. Another day ~~ another time. Did he insist on keeping his facial hair when she ‘asked’ him to clean up his ‘act’??
