Status: Married since September 2009.

How They Met: At a high school dance, Talea told Alex she thought he was cute only to have him respond, "Oh, you don't know me?" He was his school's star basketball player (but she wasn't impressed with his attitude!).

Careers: Talea is the student affairs administrator at a Cleveland college and a PhD student at Kent State University. Alex is an eligibility specialist for government housing in Cleveland.

Their Digs: They rent a 1,150 sq. ft. apartment with a private entrance, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fireplace.

Sex Life: "That's only for us to know (wink wink)!"

Guilty Pleasure: "Chips! We're doing great on a diet—and have lost 20 lbs. already between us—but the chips still call our name!"

Downtime: Alex is in a basketball league, and Talea dances.
