Who are the ‘Temptation Island’ season 3 couples?

Chelsea Orcutt, 29, and Thomas Gipson, 37

After dating for over a year, the West Hollywood-based couple decided to come to Temptation Island because she feels he flirts too much in social settings. She also worries his fear of commitment might lead him to eventually cheating on her. 

Erica Washington, 24, and Kendal Kirkland, 26

While 24-year-old Erica Washington believes 26-year-old Kendal Kirkland is the man of her dreams, he isn’t sure she’s the partner for him. Therefore, the couple of two years want to experience what the show offers to see if they’re right for each other.

Kristen Ramos, 26, and Julian Allen, 26

The high school sweethearts began dating 11 years ago when they were 15-years-old but haven’t sealed the deal because of his past infidelity.
