It’s week two of Love Island (Monday to Friday at 8 p.m. ET on CTV) and things are heating up, and we don’t just mean the fact that everyone got really sunburned (which they totally did). Yes, it’s getting hot on the villa but mostly between the guys with Weston and Zac making the first use of the romantic (or bromantic) bathtub. We are looking forward to the Weston and Zac: Bubbles and Bros spinoff next season.
Guy love aside, some couples are catching feelings while others are catching the location of all five emergency exits, including two at the front, two at the back, and one next to the giant pool no one uses.
On Monday’s episode, we watched the islanders compete in their first game that resulted in a real prize, with new couple Dylan and Alexandra earning a night alone in The Hideaway. Meanwhile, Cormac and Caro continued to dance around the fact that they aren’t interested in one another but also don’t want to be sent home, while Mallory friend-zoned Weston, only to instantly regret her decision when two new girls arrived at the end of the episode. Thankfully, there’s a John Mayer song for that.
Watching Weston and Zac share a bubble bath while bathing suits and underwear hung from the side of the tub really set the scene as they discussed deep topics like “how to know when you’ve found love,” “what to look for in a potential wife and mother of your children,” and “whose feet should go where.” It left us with one troubling, lingering question—why doesn’t this villa have an actual hot tub? Seems like a big oversight.
The girls had to inflate a paddle board while blindfolded, then trust the boys (who they’ve known for one week, at most) to safety sail them through the water, around a flamingo, and back to dry land. Again, blindfolded. The personal injury waivers for this show must be 100 pages long.
After winning the Birdbox-meets-Castaway game, Dylan and Alexandra scored a night together in The Hideaway. It was the perfect spot for their awesome talk on the balcony, where Dylan said Alexandra she looked awesome without makeup, followed by their awesome kissing in bed and their awesome walk across the lawn and back to the villa the next morning. Awesome.
THAT AWKWARD MOMENT
Cormac and Caro seemed incompatible from the beginning (despite Caro’s attempts to force herself to feel something for anyone on the island), and we got a big helping of awkward when the couple discussed their levels of attraction for one another. Rather than sugarcoat things or try to come off as, well, not incredibly rude, Cormac flat out told Caro he was more attracted to her when she was wearing a straight wig rather than her natural curls. Caro handled it as best she could, telling him she’d rather be with someone who loves her for herself. Yas queen!
Mallory and Weston come in a close second for “most awkward moment” with Mallory—who was concerned her recoupling comment of “I’m a sucker for a cowboy” may have sent the wrong message—pulling Weston aside to make sure he knew for sure, no question, very clearly, that there was no way she would ever be interested in him. At all. Ever. Girl, you’ve spent the week almost falling off the bed trying to stay away from him. No one thought you were interested.
THE NEW GIRLS
It may have been Weston’s birthday, but new girls Katrina and Christen arriving at the end of the night was the greatest gift Cormac has ever received. The original girls were less than impressed with the competition.
Caro and Cormac
Cashel and Kyra
Dylan and Alexandra
Zac and Elizabeth
Yamen and Alana
Weston and Mallory
WHO WE’RE SHIPPING
We’re pulling for Alana to continue turning Yamen into her Bae-man.
Cashel did the math and realized that the last new islanders added were boys, therefore the next new islanders will be girls. This guy’s good. Cashel chose the five minutes before Katrina and Christen arrived to tell Kyra that he thought it was important they both talk to new people. The sunstroke from Cashel’s sudden glow-up has gone straight to his head.
