This week has been Toby’s island and we’re all just living in it. The guy has done a complete U-turn, both in his own decisions on which girl he wants to “crack on” with and in the public’s opinion as well, quickly going from the least favourite to one of the funniest contestants ever. But more about that later. We almost don’t have enough words to describe the past week in the villa, with islanders changing their minds about who they want to be with every three seconds and the producers deciding to throw spanners into the works for the couples that do want to be together at every turn. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Chit chat choo…
We wonder how Hugo could be so confused as to why his time in the Love Island villa has been so unsuccessful when he uses phrases like “can we go for a chit chat choo” and compares his current coupling to a holiday fling he had when he was 11. Honestly.
Where do we even begin? From spelling out the letter ‘E’ in the air with his eyes closed because he couldn’t remember what it looked like, to going from Kaz to Chloe to Abi to Mary then deciding, actually, he wants Chloe back… We cannot keep up. But hey, he brings the chaos and that’s what we’re here for after all.
The Kaz, Tyler, Matthew love triangle
More chaos. Kaz choosing Matthew in the recoupling as collateral because she knew Tyler would bring someone back then getting confused as to why Matthew wasn’t happy when she chose to keep Tyler in after having “chats” with him on the terrace (deep breath). But, this wild duality of almost every island is the very reason we love Love Island. We have no idea what is going on in their heads half the time and that’s what makes it so realistic. We have no idea what our friends are thinking most of the time, but we love them dearly anyway.
Liam’s questionable attempts to win back Millie
We’re unsure why Liam thought writing an, ahem, interesting love (?) note on a NAPKIN in felt tip pen followed by cringy texts of “what a beautiful voo” (we’re just as confused as you Millie) would make her weak at the knees, but we also need to remember that the guy is 21 and probably thinks giving his love interest the last chicken nugget is peak romance.
We finally say goodbye to Hugo
Amy’s face when he described his entire time in the villa as “tragic” whilst she was stood right there pretty much sums it up.
Movie night in the villa
We know we asked for drama, but we’ve never had the producers pulling out literal video receipts of the islanders speaking negatively about those they’re coupled up with behind their backs before. They scrapped the tweet and headline challenge because of #BeKind, but this feels so much worse.
We just hope they have incredible aftercare in place for the contestants because this year has been brutal.
