This season of Temptation Island just keeps getting better and better. There has been an explosive revelation in practically every episode so far. And this episode was no exception! If you thought things couldn’t get worse for our couples, you’d be wrong. There were several rejections that spurred major drama, and another ultimate betrayal from one of the couples. So grab your favorite cocktail, because you’re going to need it!
But first, there is a bonfire to finish. When we last saw the ladies, Kate Griffith saw footage of her boyfriend David Benavidez in the hot tub with Toneata Morgan on top of his lap. Super classy. As predicted, Ashely Howland got shown footage of Casey Starchak wearing only a chef’s apron and holding Colleen Powers’ hand right next to his balls. So, did Ashley burst into tears like when she saw Casey getting lap dances the week prior?
Last week’s episode of Temptation Island was turned up to eleven. In only the second episode, someone decided to go with the strategy of “rip the bandaid off and get it over with” by hooking up with one of the singles. And that someone was Ashley Goldson. Her actions were most likely spurred when her boyfriend, Rick Fleur, told her “the handcuffs were off.” So now it’s time to make way for a new couple, Ashley G. and KB Brown, everyone! He’s the captain now.
At the bonfire, Rick was shown footage of this shocking new revelation. Gavin Rocker’s jaw was literally on the floor, which was exactly my reaction as well. Surprisingly, David Benavidez and Casey Starchak were able to keep a straight face. But at the end of the day, all that mattered was what Rick thought. And his reaction was not quite what I had expected.
I. Am. Dead. We are only onto the second episode of Temptation Island and already the show is next level. If the rest of the season keeps up at this pace I don’t know if I’ll be able to handle it. For those who saw the episode already, you know exactly what I am freaking out about. And if you haven’t seen this episode yet, stop what you are doing and immediately find it on your DVR, streaming or on demand. This is truly must see TV.
We’ll get to the major bomb that dropped in a bit. But first, let’s start at the beginning. The couples say their goodbyes to one another, or rather lack there of. All of the women are crying as the men sheepishly walk out and head back to their villa where a bevy of single women await them. Everyone is pretty much regretting their decision to be on this show, but there’s no turning back now.
It’s time to grab the popcorn and your favorite drink (you’re gonna need it). Temptation Island is back for a second season and the first episode did not disappoint! The tension was felt immediately as the four ill-fated couples made their way to the island. It was sunny and gorgeous, but quickly turned dark and stormy.
For those who need a quick recap – the show is about four couples at a crossroads in their relationships. They arrive on Temptation Island and are then separated so they can be tempted by single men and women who are looking to
gain followers on social media fall in love. Will they cheat or won’t they? At the very end the couples decide if they want to leave together or apart. Last season ended with devastating breakups and one engagement. So, will this new crew beat the odds of an inevitable break up? Let’s find out!
The first season of the Temptation Island reboot was a hit. So, of course, the show is coming back for round 2! Plenty of reality TV stars got together to celebrate at the Temptation Island Season 2 premiere.
White Kanye himself, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy DJ’ed the party. His girlfriend Raquel Leviss was also on hand to support. Imagine if those two were actually a part of the Temptation Island cast. That would be some must-see TV. The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella also hopped in the DJ booth at the event. Season 1 couple Shari Ligons and Javen Butler showed up to support Season 2. They are the only couple from the first season that is actually still together. They got engaged during the finale. Season 1’s Kaci Campbell was also there among the Real Housewives, members of Bachelor nation, and other reality TV stars. It is probably such a relief for Kaci to not be a part of the drama this time around. She really went through it last season.
Christmas has officially moved to the month of October because we have been given the gift of Temptation Island season two! And yes, this is the same show that originally aired in the early 2000s, and was rebooted last year.
Last season had incredible drama and was a true rollercoaster ride for all of the couples involved. One relationship in particular, Kaci Campbell and Evan Smith, was doomed as soon as they arrived on the island. Kaci kept her dates friendly and fun, and Evan immediately fell in love with another woman, which he left Kaci for in a heartbreaking moment at the end of the show. So how can they top that this year?
Did you guys watch Season 1 of the Temptation Island reboot? If you didn’t (or, if you did, and your brain just doesn’t have the room to store the details of yet another reality tv dating show), here’s how the show works: the producers put four couples on “Temptation Island.” The couples are separated and given lots of alcohol and very little clothes. The producers then throw a bunch of hot, single people at the couples to see if they will stay together or “give into temptation.” Spoiler alert: they pretty much always give into temptation.
There is some sort of competition and/or voting component, so couples get eliminated during the season. The rules of elimination are a little unclear… I’m pretty sure the producers just make the rules up as they go. At the end of the season, one couple is left standing. That couple decides whether to leave together, alone, or with one of the singles. Last year’s “winning couple” was divided – she wanted to leave together, he left with one of the singles.
Hollywood loves their reboots and remakes. Get ready for a new Top Gun, Indiana Jones, Men in Black, and a live action film for every Disney cartoon ever made. And don’t forget Clueless. For the love of God, please leave that perfect film alone. As Cher would say, “Ugh, as if!”
Reality TV has also hopped onto the reboot bandwagon. One of my favorite guilty pleasures, Temptation Island, just aired a brand new season. And I’m still reeling from that shocking finale aftermath with Kaci Campbell and Evan Smith. Now MTV has joined the club, and is bringing back their past hits too.
