MAFS star Georges revealed he had eyes for another bride and says they would have got on 'like a house on fire'.
Despite the show's first transgender contestant being exactly his type, MAFS experts Charlene Douglas, Mel Schilling and Paul Carrick Brunson paired Georges up with the Kent-based beauty.
But while Georges revealed that he and Ella got on "like a house on fire", the sports rehabilitator reassured fans that his first option would always be his intended wife.
He told new! magazine: "Peggy's beautiful and, actually, I wouldn't have gone with anyone else. But if you put a gun to my head, I'd have picked Ella."
Georges said he enjoyed Ella's company as their similar personalities clicked and admitted it would have been a good formula for marriage.
"We'd have got on like a house on fire," he explained.
"Ella and I spoke throughout. She's a hoot. We have a very similar sense of humour - very inappropriate, very outspoken, very outrageous."
Georges previously admitted to knowing Ella from outside the experiment after the two crossed paths on a string of nights out.
Hinting there was an initial spark there, he told the Divorced! Beheaded! THRIVED! podcast: "I actually knew Ella from five years ago when I lived in Bristol.
"I think we originally met in a club… I’m not sure. Or we ended up sliding into each other’s DMs once upon a time. Years ago.
"We were going to go for a drink, we never did. And then, obviously, Ella was a dancer and I bumped into her a couple of times at the bar."
"Seriously, I never get dances. But yes, she was in there and we used to have a good laugh."
Georges cheeky comments came after the couple faced some tension in last night's episode of MAFS.
Peggy Rose finally watched the controversial clip of her husband twerking in a Tarzan outfit and declared she was "embarrassed" by the "degrading" content.
The tense scene ended with the 32-year-old storming out of their joint apartment, leaving viewers unsure of how the bride and groom were going to progress from here.
