Quite a journey. Erica Washington and Kendal Kirkland, Erin Smith and Corey Sobczyk, Kristen Ramos and Julian Allen and Chelsea Orcutt and Tom Gipson were all at very different stages of their relationship when they entered the third season of Temptation Island.
During the finale on Tuesday April 27th, each couple decided whether to leave the show with someone else or alone. After the episode, the reunion special revealed who made it through after the last campfire – and not everyone did.
Spotted in bed with two women at the same time during the season, 26-year-old Kendal tried to defend his actions at the beginning of the reunion. Despite the fact that he and his girlfriend Erica, 24, had “no rules” in place before entering, she still felt betrayed.
“I feel like when you’re in a relationship, even if you go into that experience and say, ‘No rules,’ I shouldn’t have to tell my partner, ‘Hey, don’t cheat on me’ or, ‘Hey, don’t respect me ” said Erica during the reunion. “I expected that from him.”
The couple became the most controversial of the season since Kendal hooked up with several women while on the island. During the last bonfire, Erica decided to leave alone – and he was shocked and kept asking her if she was safe.
“I love you so much. I’ve never loved anyone the way I loved you. But this process taught me that it is important that I love myself beyond that and that I put myself first. For this reason I will go alone, “said Erica, much to his surprise.” The Erica who joined us is not the same Erica at the moment. I stand by this decision so you don’t have to keep asking me. I need to love myself more I have to put myself first. “
With that he said he was “trying something new” and went with him Alexcy’s Homan.
