With the finale of 'Love Island' just a day away, fans are scrambling to vote for their favorite couple to win the show and the $100,000 prize that comes alongside with it. So, when fans opened their 'Love Island' application on their mobile phones to cast their vote for a couple of their choice, they were greeted with an unpleasant surprise that left many fans fuming and convinced that the application and the results of the vote might be rigged.

As soon as the fans opened the application, Cely Vazquez and Johnny Middlebrooks were presented as the first option for voting, but when fans tried to swipe away Johnny and Cely to see the other couples, the application wouldn't allow them. It kept coming back to the couple. Many fans took to their Twitter to point out the glitch in the app, and also began wondering if the app was rigged to get Cely and Johnny to win the show.

A fan tweeted, "Y’all the app is rigged I tried to swipe to Justine and Caleb and the app moved it back to Johnny and Cely...I see what Love Island is doing and YALL AINT SLICK #LoveIslandUSA." Another fan wrote, "Yall no lie i opened my app to vote and cely and johnny's faces popped up first and without my touching ANYTHING it went 'are you sure you want to vote for cely and johnny?' and I had to click 'no' this thing is RIGGED be careful voting!!!!! #Jaleb #loveisland #loveislandusa." Another said, "And about this why is Cely and Johnny the 1st couple on the app.. they literally want us to vote for them!! Like why not Calvin and Moira or Carrington and Laurel?!? @loveislandusa @CBS already picked the winners before the show started. #LoveIslandUSA," wondered a fan.




Some fans ended up accidentally voting for Cely and Johnny despite them not being their choice of couple to vote due to the glitch in the app. They aired out their frustration on Twitter. A fan commented, "I BREATHED AND THE APP MADE ME VOTE FOR CELY AND JOHNNY WHEN I WAS VOTING FOR JUSTINE AND CALEB #LoveIslandUSA." Another said, "Tell me why I heard some people while tryna vote for Jaleb the love island app was glitching and going back to cely and Johnny I’m like oh hell naw if they rig this s**t for Johnny and cely #loveisland #LoveIslandUSA," expressed a fan.
