'Love Island': Former 'Big Brother' contestant Winston Hines headed to 'shake things up' after latest elimination on show
Fans had mixed reactions to Michael’s elimination. Most fans felt that it was expected since Michael showed zero interest in bonding with any of the girls on the show.
The fourth episode of ‘Love Island’ saw one of the OG islanders getting eliminated. In the previous episode, we saw the newcomers- Dylan and Cormac go on dates with the girls. While Dylan’s date with audience choice Alexandra, went very smoothly, when it was his turn to pick his date, he chose Alexandra’s “BFF” Mallory. Mallory and he had a good date too. Cormac, on the other hand, went on a date with Caro because the audience picked her for him, Lucky for him, Caro also happens to be the girl he’s most attracted to. For his choice, he picked Elizabeth. All the fans were unhappy with this since everyone was rooting for Elizabeth and Zac. Thankfully, Elizabeth showed little to no interest in Cormac. As soon as they are back to the villa from the date, we see Elizabeth grabbing Zac aside and passionately kissing him.
By the end of the episode, all the islanders were called together by Arielle for the first elimination. The atmosphere seemed tense. Caro came to realize that it’d be her decision as to who would be sent back home. She has a mini-meltdown where she claimed she didn’t want to be in this precarious situation of having to end the journey of one of the boys. At elimination time, the tables have turned, and the girls were asked to pick their partners to couple up with, and the boy who hasn’t been coupled up with will be sent home. The boys were a bit taken aback by this new turn of events, especially Dylan and Cormac, who thought they had the power. All the girls picked their OG partners, except for Alexandra who traded Michael for the dreamy Dylan. After much deliberation, Caro picked new boy Cormac to couple up with. This meant Michael must leave the show.
Fans had mixed reactions to Michael’s elimination. Most fans felt that it was expected since Michael showed zero interest in bonding with any of the girls on the show. A fan commented, “Umm...Michael didn't try to make any connection with a single girl in there and seemed more interested in the guys. Sure he looked delicious but wtf was that nasal cringe tone of his? Every conversation of his with the girls were just awkward and embarrassing to watch. Bye Felicia!” Another fan wrote, “Michael did it to himself, I mean, who goes and tells a women 'let's stick together until we find someone we like'.? That basically translates to, 'I am using you to stay in the house and will dump you the first chance I get!'. #byebyebye #idiot #loveislandus”. Some fans took a much kinder approach and expressed that they would miss him. “Wow... Michael is literally the best looking guy and the most down to earth on this show! Damn I’ll snatch him up if he’s still single 😂😂”, shared a fan. Few fans chided Caro for picking Cormac over Michael, “listen i’m balling my eyes out rn, i miss him so much already. Caro honestly made a mistake by Cormac, yes i like Cormac but Michael is my OG boy, he will be missed 😭❤️”, wrote a fan who seems to have taken his elimination a bit too seriously.
Michael’s elimination left a spot in the villa vacant which will soon be filled up by former ‘Big Brother’ contestant, William Hines. Hines took to his Twitter to share that he’d soon be appearing on ‘love Island’ He tweeted, “Hey y’all- guess who is headed to @loveislandusa to shake things up in the villa this week? 👀🤔 #loveislandusa #findadogmom #wishmeluck”. Fans immediately expressed their excitement over this good news. A fan excitedly tweeted, “Can't wait! You're a very nice guy they are lucky ladies!”
We can’t wait to see what new drama William Hines will bring onto the show.
