Carter Jenkins Still Has Hope for Rainer + Paige on ‘Famous in Love’ Season 2

  • by

After the ‘Famous in Love‘ season one season finale, all the fans were on edge wondering who Paige (Bella Thorne) would choose when season 2 began.  Was it going to be Rainer (Carter Jenkins) or best friend, Jake (Charlie DePew)?

When season 2 premiered, the world found out rather quickly that Paige ended up choosing her BFF Jake.  Is there still hope for Rainer?  Raige fandom is still holding out hope, and so is Carter Jenkins who plays Rainer on ‘Famous in Love.’

In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, he said, “I don’t know if you know this but I really ship Raige. I was always rooting for them.”  So do we!

Even though Rainer and Paige aren’t dating, could they still be friends?  Carter answers, “You know, I feel like to build a really strong relationship, you have to connect as friends first and maybe the not being together is something that could long-term strengthen their connection.

Great advice (even for real life relationships!)

At the end of the season 2 premiere that aired on April 4th, Rainer and Paige had an encounter where he told her they would have “burned out by now.”  

Carter has his own take on why Rainer said this.  “If anything he’s trying to convince himself that he’s in a good place with Paige.  I don’t think he was being completely honest there.
