After what's felt like a *very* long wait, Selling Sunset season 6 has officially arrived on Netflix.

The reality series, which first aired in 2019, tells the story of a group of glamorous real estate agents, including Chrishell Stause, Emma Hernan and Heather Rae El Moussa working at The Oppenheim Group in LA.

But while it mainly focuses on real estate, there's also a lot of romance and one of our favourite couples is Mary Fitzgerald and husband Romain Bonnet who have been on Selling Sunset since the very start.

As we've witnessed the twists and turns in their relationship on screen from their age gap, to their wedding and their discussion about babies, we've become heavily invested in the show's longest romance.

So who is Romain Bonnet? Where is he from and how old is he? Here's everything you need to know including what he does for a job.

Romain, aged 29, is a model and project manager, who first came to Hollywood as a pastry chef. He is originally from France but has been in America for over five years now.

Romain's family still live in France but they went to America for his wedding to real estate agent Mary Fitzgerald - the reason he's on the show.

What is Romain Bonnet's job?

Romain's work history mainly includes modelling but in recent years he's turned his attention to real estate too as he officially joined The Oppenheim Group as a project manager.

Wanting to save money for his half of buying a home with Mary, she's revealed he's become an indispensable part of the team.

She told Women's Health: "He does construction now. He's a project manager for a bunch of our listings, a lot of people don't know that. So he's been working on all of our projects.

She added: "He's a great leader and an incredibly hard worker. Since the market has been crazy, he has been slammed with jobs as a project manager."

What is the age difference between Romain and Mary?

The age gap between Mary and Romain has been a big topic throughout the seasons as he is 29 and Mary is 42 years old - making her just over 12 years older than him.

The couple met through mutual friends in 2017, and they got married in Los Angeles in October 2019.
