Erica Washington and Kendal Kirkland joined the cast of ‘Temptation Island’ season 3

After dating for a little over two years, Los Angeles-based couple 24-year-old Erica Washington, and 26-year-old Kendal Kirkland signed up for Temptation Island to test their relationship.

Kendal explained he initially fell for Erica’s charisma while she appreciated his dedication to his future. They also clarified their decision to go on the show as she noted he demands “excellence” and doesn’t think she’s putting her all into her goals.

According to Kendal, he wants his future wife to match his ambition and thinks Erica has a hard time following through with things. However, she’s concerned that the woman she’ll eventually become won’t be enough for him.

Therefore, she wants him to realize her love is enough for him. On the other hand, Kendal hopes the experience shows him if Erica is the person to settle down with or if he’s overly “critical.” 

Kendal already slept with another single

The couple agreed they wouldn’t have any rules while on the island to participate in the whole experience.

Kendal wasted no time as he quickly established a physical connection with a single Alexcys Homan and slept with her multiple times, including a three-some.

His girlfriend, who hadn’t sexually connected with anyone in the house, had to watch clips of him hooking up with the other woman. After initially trying to give him a pass, she seemingly put her foot down and claimed they no longer had a relationship.

She began opening up to some of the guys in the house, namely Jesse Stephanos, and the two are establishing a connection together. Even though Kendal and Alexcys have spoken about moving in with each other following the show, he noted he plans on leaving the island with Erica.

The 26-year-old claims he knows his girlfriend and believes she’ll exit the series alongside him after they speak at their final bonfire. However, she seems sure that she’s finding her worth and ready to move on without Kendal.

Following their time on the show, the couple isn’t yet allowed to share if they left the island together. However, she dropped a hint by posting a picture featuring some new ink.

The 24-year-old now has the letter “K” with a crown shortly below it tatted on the inside of her arm. Several fans assumed she got her tattoo for Kendal, but the Temptation Island star seemingly denied currently dating him a week later in an Instagram comment.

The official account posted a teaser video of the upcoming episode, and a fan remarked, “She took him back, what a sad girl. I guess she likes sharing.” Erica clapped back, “boohoo. Bye.” Therefore, the two are likely currently together. However, fans won’t officially find out until the reunion. Temptation Island airs Tuesdays at 10/9 Central on USA Network.
