Pete and Chasten married in June 2018, three years after they connected on the dating app Hinge. Pete asked Chasten to have a coffee during lunchtime , but Chasten stuck in a traffic jam on the way from Chicago and when he finally arrived the only way left was to have a dinner. A very romantic dinner. “When I pulled up in front of his house to pick him up, he opened the door and we both said ‘howdy’ at the same time. Then we both said: ‘What? That’s my word.’ It was kind of a cute meet-cute,” said Chasten to Now This. The couple first met in person in September 2015, bonding over a plate of Scotch eggs in a South Bend, Indiana pub. Chasten, who came from Midwestern part of the country, has never eaten anything like that, but when he tried, he said it was really magical.
