Each week, TV Guide is recapping CBS’s Love Island USA — the U.S. take on the U.K. reality show phenomenon. Join us as we break down all the drama between these sexy humans who “packed more abs than shirts” for Fiji, and check back every night for the latest updates.
Congratulations! You made it to week 3, or just over 20 days, of this reality experiment that is Love Island USA. And to thank us for our dedication, CBS is treating us to six new sexy singles to shake up the villa.
Following Friday night’s sudden dumping of Christen and Cormac, Kyra has decided she can’t waste time anymore. She sits Cashel down and tells him she doesn’t think they “click in all the ways.” He gets it — but he’s not happy.
Someone who is happy, though, is Elizabeth. She’s positively gleeful when Zac finally asks her if she’ll be his girlfriend. I hate how much I love these two.
But they won’t be able to celebrate their official status together for long because the women are spending the day outside the villa. They chat over cocktails before three beautiful men join them to mingle. We meet Ray, who is 23 and from Jersey; Eric, who is 28 and from Toronto and says friends call him a player (red flag!!); and George, an old man at 30 who is from California.
Back at the villa, right after the guys attempt a push-up stack, three new ladies walk in. We meet Kelsey, a 25-year-old from Delaware who’s never been in love; Marli, who is 20 and from Miami and not quite sure if she has eyes for Winston or Weston; and Aissata, who is 26 and from the Bronx.
The only notable development from these new singles so far is that Weston spends a long time with Kelsey. In fact, Cashel tells Caro, who tells Katrina, that they spend an hour and a half chatting. That makes Katrina slightly jealous, which is what Cashel was hoping to do with Kelsey as well (make Kyra jealous).
Will it work? Stay tuned! Kyra says she has a tendency to run away and then wanting what she gave up when it comes to men, and it seems that the “wanting what she gave up” part is in full swing. As Alexandra said, expect a couple of “switcheroos” coming.
We’ll update the recap here all week, so be sure to come back Tuesday when we learn just how big these waves are that the new arrivals are making.
Love Island USA airs week nights at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access.
