The final is just around the corner. My non-Love Island watching readers can look forward to the end of these posts. New additions to the villa have ceased, and the couples are being whittled down until we find out on Monday who will be taking home the £50K.
So without further ado, here are my thoughts on the series’ final week.
Jack & Laura Depart
As we head towards the final, another couple were evicted from the villa this week. Megan is absolutely vile and her relationship with Wes is built on screwing over multiple other members of the villa. Kaz has a definite bitchy side and Josh behaved poorly towards Georgia. It was debatable whether Laura and Paul or Alex squared actually liked each other. But the public instead decided to evict Jack and Laura, who both seem cool and their blossoming romance appeared to be going from strength to strength. Here’s hoping things will continue to bloom outside the villa, but I suspect Jack’s head may be turned but the female attention he will undoubtedly receive.
There’s No Point Playing It Safe
When Alexandra entered the villa, her mother had told her to “go for the doctor”. And who can blame her? While stories of a shady past had emerged in the press, in the villa Alex came across like a nice guy and the ideal catch. I suspect Alexandra may have been more attracted to Idris, but she ended up choosing Alex as “he’s a nice guy which is what I need right now”. But while former fuckboys Jack and Adam are now super-committed, Alex got cold feet and decided to call it quits (despite making plans for the outside world on their date earlier that day). People give women shit for “going for the wrong guys”, but things like this go to show you might as well follow your vagina.
Final Thoughts On The Couples
Jack & Dani
Obvious winners. Highly likeable and great TV both as individuals and as a couple. The romance we all wish we could have. People have noticed red flags with Jack though so here’s hoping he will remain loyal to Dani outside the villa.
Megan & Wes
Unlikely to win the show due to “Meggy Megan’s” unpopularity with female viewers, but there’s no denying that they are very much in love. It’s a shame when girls like that get snapped up, while girls who would die for a good man get treated like dirt.
Josh & Kaz
Another couple who haven’t always behaved honorably, but are highly compatible. They have their fans, so they could be a shock winner.
Alex & Alexandra
Their romance has bit the dust, however I like them both as individuals. There’s smoke around Alex but I like his TV persona at least. And Alexandra seems lovely and I hope she finds someone else soon.
Laura & Paul
I reeeaaaally want this one to work out. Laura seems so nice but she’s been so hard done by in the villa. But Paul seems nice. And he’s 31. And he folds his own washing! I don’t see a strong spark between them at the moment but here’s hoping that will grow in time.
