Zooey Deschanel plays favorites when it comes to her “best” friend.

The New Girl Alaun, who is executive producer and host of the new game show The Celebrity Dating Game, spoke to Us weekly about why she’s so excited about her Property Brothers star boyfriend Jonathan Scott. The cute couple has been together since 2019 and has been inseparable ever since.

“I think Jonathan is just the nicest person in the world,” she told the magazine. “Well, I’m really lucky. I just try to be nice like him. And it works.”

When asked by the point of sale if she would ever consider trying The Celebrity Dating Game for herself, she said no way. “I have the best friend in the world so I don’t even think about doing something like that,” explained 500 Days of Summer star Jonathan, whom she first met on the set of Carpool Karaoke.
