Love Island Season 2 Episode 1 Recap
The second season of ‘Love Island USA’ kicks off with some heat and and a dramatic coupling ceremony. The events take place on the roof of a Las Vegas casino, rather than the islands of Fiji — thanks to the COVID-19 restrictions. Narrator Matthew Hoffman addresses everyone, saying: “Look, rooftops are islands now. What are you, a geography major?” The first batch of contestants make an entry — five women and five men. Jeremiah White is introduced and the girls are asked of anyone is interested in pairing up with him. Justine Ndiba steps up but Jeremiah chooses Cely Vazquez instead. Tre Forte also picks Cely and Jeremiah is sent to the bench for the rest of the coupling ceremony. Justine and Jeremiah end up getting paired together as they are left with no other choice.
However, things do not click well with Justine and Jeremiah. Their conversation lacks chemistry and Justine wonders out loud if they are allowed to carry the wine glasses home. Yes, the entire interaction seems like ‘friend-zoning’. On the other hand, James McCool and Moira Tumas appear to have developed an instant connection. They even end up kissing! Seeing the events unfold before her, Justin says in a confessional: “I’m looking for what Moira and James had, they clicked right away. Love Island is betraying me… It’s day one, I shouldn’t be frustrated… but I can’t handle it. How is there not a connection? There’s like six guys here.” She then sits with Jeremiah and says that they should give their relationship a try, at least.
Carrington Rodriguez pairs up with Kaitlynn Anderson and Mackenzie Dipman clicks off immediately with Connor Trott. Johnny Middlebrooks, a sixth guy, makes a surprise entry later. And the twist? He picks Cely who easily prefers him over Tre. Tre now faces the risk of elimination. Will he pack his bags in the next episode? Tune in on Tuesday night to find out!
