Everything You Need To Know If You're Thirsting Over Mike Faist

Have you been rewatching the Challengers previews over and over? Gazing longingly at the movie poster, just dreaming about your trip to the movie theater on April 26? Does this behavior have to do with a certain… Mike Faist? It’s okay —you’re not alone. As a society, we are collectively experiencing a sudden and powerful thirst for Mike, who plays Zendaya’s husband and a tennis star in the upcoming Luca Guadagnino film. There’s recently been a lot of teasing of Mike and Zendaya sex scenes in previews and trailers.

So, it’s only natural that you’re feeling curious about this king’s current love life and past partners. Right now, I think many of us would like to know key info about his type and who he really is as a lover. Since I have the same illness and questions as you do, I put in some hours conducting research on the topic. (I’m proactive, what can I say?) Allow me to help ease our curiosities with the tea I found on Mike’s dating history.

It Seems Like He Dated Tilly Evans-Kreuger

There are rumors of a previous romance between Mike and professional dancer Tilly Evans-Kreuger. Unfortunately, there’s not exactly hard evidence to confirm the relationship. All we have to go on are questionable reports and some old photos of these two looking couple-y. If this was actually a thing, it appears to have happened quite a few years ago.

Mike Is A Very Private Guy

Devastatingly for us, Mike mostly keeps his private life private. He explained to IndieWire: “I do a self-preservation thing, because … I think I learned my lesson a long time ago doing Dear Evan Hansen of just not paying attention to any of those things… A big part of what I do, or at least what I think works for me, is just protecting that head space and not paying attention to all of it, being just blindly ignorant to it all.” But Mike. The stans don’t want to be blindly ignorant. We would like to know everything, please. Even just some crumbs would do.

He’s Probably The Next White Boy Of The Month

I daresay the title may belong to him very soon. Around April 26, if I had to guess. It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it. I can just sense the girlies drafting their Mike TikTok edits and tweets that will somehow make me fall even more in love with him. There will likely be game-changing magazine covers and perhaps even a billboard or two. Jeremy Allen White, who?
