Exclusive Clip: Watch the Same-Sex Twosome from ‘Couple to Throuple’ Who Met in Michigan Butt Heads on Adding a Third

Will Ashmal and Rehman agree on who they’ll allow into their relationship?

Everything is about to get real for Ashman Ali and Rehman Bhatti, the twosome who had their meet-cute in Michigan, became an item and then decided to explore outside their relationship, together. Now, all their polyamorous goals (and playful debates!) are about to play out in front of the cameras on Peacock’s new 10-episode reality series, “Couple to Throuple,” premiering Feb. 8. 

In this exclusive Pride Source clip, Ashmal and Rehman, who Ashmal called “Detroit boy” due to his metro Detroit connections before they officially became romantic, compare themselves as a couple to Hollywood power couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.

Ashmal is “the handsome, comedic one of the relationship,” says Rehman. “I’m just the beautiful one.” 

In the clip, the soon-to-be-throuple demonstrates their couplehood by debating what they’re looking for in a third (or fourth, or fifth…).

“I think it’s gonna be hard for us to find someone who can enter this relationship,” Rehman says. “I would actually like somebody who can kind of just take control for both of us.” 



Ashmal, however, is on a slightly different page about all this, to the shock and dismay of Rehman, who rolls his eyes at Ashmal’s response.

“See, I’m kind of the opposite,” Ashmal says. “I kind of do want someone who’s figuring it out with us — I don’t want to play by their rules because obviously whatever they were doing didn’t work [and] now they’re here.”

Rehman snaps back, “Obviously what we were doing didn’t work either or why else are we here?”  

Of the four couples on the show, Rehman and Ashmal, who met while Ashmal was attending law school at Michigan State University, are the series’ only same-sex pairing. During a recent interview, Rehman told Pride Source that the initial pressure to represent the fullness of the LGBTQ+ community eased after some time and self-reflection.

“It took a little while for me to get over that and realize, listen, while I am somewhat representing the LGBTQ+ community, I'm representing Rehman and that's it,” he said. “So I really had to just go with the flow, do what I felt was right, and not necessarily worry about what other people are going to say or how I might be perceived by maybe non-queer people, but then also the queer community in general. I just had to do my own thing.” 

Watch the clip below before tuning into Peacock to see if the couple can agree on what they want from a poly relationship.
