‘Love Island’ Fans Call out Winners for Not Doing This 1 Thing After Winning
[Spoiler alert: Spoilers for the Love Island USA Season 3 episode on Aug. 15!]
‘Love Island’ had unexpected couples in the finale
There were many couples that hung on for a long time in the season but surprisingly went home. Shannon St. Clair and Josh Goldstein were frontrunners and became boyfriend and girlfriend. But they immediately left the villa because Josh had an unexpected death in the family and wanted to be with them. They both left together.
Some fan-favorite islanders were also sent off the show because they struggled to find love. So that left Charlie Lynch and Alana Paolucci, Jeremy Hershberg and Bailey Marshall, Olivia Kaiser and Korey Gandy, and Will Moncada and Kyra Lizama.
The longest-lasting couple has been Will and Kyra. But Will strayed during Casa Amor to kiss and sleep next to Florence Mueller. They have since been in danger of going home, but their fellow islanders saved them.
Korey and Olivia have also been in the villa the longest. But they spent most of their time there struggling to find a romantic connection with someone else. After Casa Amor, Olivia claimed she realized she had feelings for Korey. He decided to couple up with her instead of Bailey.
Charlie and Alana and Jeremy and Bailey were much newer couples and stars. They seemed like the least likely to win, so the winners of season 3 were hard to predict.
‘Love Island’ fans call out winners for not doing this 1 thing after winning
The finale revealed Will and Kyra and Olivia and Korey were the top two couples. Host Arielle Vandenberg revealed Olivia and Korey were the ones who won, and they celebrated.
Vandenberg asked how they were feeling, and Korey said he was bouncing from friendship to friendship for most of the season. “Then I finally connected with Olivia, and then from there it was just like I didn’t care about anything else,” Korey said. “And just to win, the whole thing is like ‘Oh my god!’”
Olivia then gave her reaction. “I just wanna say thank you for like believing in me and Korey, and just us together, and I love you guys,” she said.
They then opened their envelopes to see who had the $100,000 prize. Korey had the money and decided to share it with Olivia.
Fans noticed the couple didn’t kiss after the announcement that they won. They shared their reactions to that on Reddit.
“They didn’t even kiss. This ain’t a real couple. I’m so irritated,” one person wrote.
“They didn’t even kiss lmao they only cared about the money,” another fan wrote.
“Fakest couple ever. They were not even touching each other lol,” a third fan wrote.
The couple previously told the host they had to grow first before becoming a couple. Only time will tell what their relationship will be like outside of the villa.
