After Melvin 'Cinco' Holland Jr finally decided to put an end to the love triangle between Trina Njoroge, Cashay Proudfoot, and him by making the decision to pursue Cash, fans began rooting strongly for Trina to find a new man/ connection on 'Love Island'. Up until then Trina had her eyes only on Cinco and didn't even open up to any of the hotties in Casa Amor either. But with Cinco going after Cash, fans wanted Trina too to find a love interest for herself.

So when two hunks- Andre Brunelli and K-Ci Maultsby were thrown into the villa, fans were eagerly waiting for Trina to go after one of the men. Fans began shipping K-Ci and Trina pretty strongly when he revealed that his eyes were on her before entering the villa. But as soon as K-Ci set foot into the villa and met all the beautiful girls, he had a change of heart and was drawn to Elly Steffan.

K-Ci wasted no time in pursuing Elly very strongly. He even took her out on a date and did everything he could to woo her, while Trina continued to wait for her Prince Charming. During the recoupling it came as no surprise when K-Ci chose Elly to couple up with, however, fans were shocked to see Andre saving Trina from going home by coupling up with her. Although Andre wasn't fans' top pick for Trina, they still went with the flow and began rooting for them by voting for them as the couple with the most potential.

On the other hand, Elly was struggling to form a connection with K-Ci as she didn't seem to be interested or drawn to him. Fans sensed that and they ended up being amongst the bottom three couples who received the fewest votes from America for the couple with the most potential. When it was time for the safe islanders to decide which couple they wanted to save from getting booted off the show, they all picked Charlie Lynch and Alana Paolucci over K-Ci and Elly.

Several amused fans took to their Twitter to point out how K-Ci would have been safe had he decided to pursue Trina instead of Elly. A fan tweeted, "I just knew K-Ci was making a mistake going after Elly. Should have taken a shot at Trina. Now he's going home. #loveislandusa." "Hate hate that Elly caused K-Ci to leave . He should’ve known better and gone with Trina . Also CHARLIE HAS TO GO !!! He’s a very undecided man ew #LoveIslandUSA," added a fan. "See if Kci would've chosen Trina maybe he wouldn't have gotten dumped tonight #LoveIslandUSA," commented a fan.

Some fans even pointed out how K-Ci and Trina could have won this season had they coupled up. A fan wrote, "Trina and Kci have no idea if they get together they will win this thing. #LoveIslandUSA." "Ironically though, i’m 100% sure if kci would’ve went the trina route, he prob would’ve had an actual connection with a sure ride to the end, possibly even winning at that…. *sigh* it’s not always about lighter skin ma boy #loveislandusa," echoed a fan. "I thought korey is the only one stupid but no kci is stupidest..u chose ely just for her to rejecting u and going home when u have ur chance to win it w trina #LoveIslandUSA," declared a fan.
