Correction: A previous version of this article misstated Kissinger’s current role and workplace. It has been updated.

On Netflix’s newest reality dating series The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On, six couples have to decide whether or not it’s time to get married. In most of the show’s couples, which are each heteronormatively comprised of one man and one woman, it’s the woman who sets the titular ultimatum, making their partner decide to either propose or move on. But in Colby Kissinger’s case, he’s the one who issues the ultimatum to his partner, Madlyn Ballatori.

Let’s just get one thing out of the way: The Ultimatum is absolutely ridiculous. The show takes six already-established couples and pushes them to decide whether or not they want to spend the rest of their lives together. I guess that part of the show’s premise isn’t that weird, especially in the world of reality TV, but what’s bonkers is how the show asks the cast to go about making their decision: by having them date other people to see if there’s someone better for them out there. Colby goes into The Ultimatum sure that Madlyn is the one for him, but the show’s whole experiment makes him start to question things.

As you watch the mess of a season play out on Netflix, here’s everything to know about Colby.
