In the third season of Netflix’s hit show “Never Have I Ever,” which comes out on Aug. 12, Darren Barnet is back as the teen heartthrob Paxton Hall-Yoshida. In the show, Barnet plays Paxton, a well-known and complicated guy who is the main love interest of the main character, Devi Vishwakumar.
Outside of “Never Have I Ever,” Barnet is just as attractive as his show character. His role on the show and in the Netflix movie “Love Hard” in 2021 has brought him a lot of love from fans.
So much love, in fact, that the number of thirsty DMs he gets every day has gone through the roof. In May 2020, he told Elle, “Every time I refresh it, there are like 100 or 200 more.”
“There are a lot that just says, “Hey, the show has really helped me through a hard time” or “Thank you for making me laugh.” I love those, and I do my best to reach out and answer them. Then there are the ones that tell you to take off your shirt. And I’m like, ‘No.'”
So who has made Barnet fall in love? After “Love Hard” came out, the actor dated his “Love Hard” co-star Mikaela Hoover for a short time. However, it looks like Barnet may be back on the market again.
In the midst of the release of “Never Have I Ever,” here’s how Darren Barnet’s love life is going and who he’s been with in the past!
