“Temptation Island” season four is OFFICIALLY underway!
The couples have come to the island and met the 24 singles. During the singles reveal, there was a lot of side-eyeing, skepticism, and peacocking.
And no, we aren’t talking about this guy…
Gillian Lieberman and Edgar De Santiago have been together for three years and are college sweethearts.
It’s becoming more apparent that Gillian wanted to come to the island to see if she’s missed out on being single in her early 20s.
Gillian Is Wondering If She’s Wasted Time With Edgar
Upon arriving at the island and meeting show host Mark Walberg, Gillian realized there was no turning back.
“I’m realizing we are in pretty deep. I’m starting to think it was a mistake to come to temptation island,” she said.
However, in the same tune, she said that if they were 25-years-old they most likely would’ve been engaged or married by now, but Gillian is unsure if she’s okay with being in a committed relationship right now.
Both Edgar and Gillian have broken one another’s trust previously, and Edgar said that anything past a kiss is “unnecessary.”
Anything More Than Kissing Is Unnecessary To Edgar
Gillian was pretty nervous to be around the singles.
“Makes me nervous to know that this is the start of my single life,” she said. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been around a bunch of single men.”
Ash Lamiroult and Hania Stocker are from New Mexico and have come to “Temptation Island” after a year and a half of dating.
Ash seems to be more affected than Hania by the experiment. After all, she is the one uprooting her life for Brooklyn this summer for a new job.
“I want to know if I’m making the right decisions in life and love, and I need to know if I can make long-distance work,” Ash explained.
Hania is looking for a more open relationship, while Ash simply wants Hania and only Hania.
The main reason Ash decided to come to the island is that she’s “unsure if he will be faithful.”

She also mentioned that despite being committed to one another for over a year, Hania still introduces her to strangers as his “friend.”
Ashley Rodriguez and Lascelles Lagares, the couple from Queens, have come to the island after seven years together.
They’ve decided it’s time to test their love to see if the next step in their relationship would be an engagement and starting a family.
Ashley Explains Why They Haven’t Gotten Engaged
So what’s stopping them from getting engaged?
Ashley explained, “We haven’t been with many other people.”
It seems they’re both wondering if there is something or someone better out there.
Ashley also feels they’re lacking the romance they had early on in their relationship, while Lascelles feels their relationship is lacking on an intellectual level.
They are not having the “grown-up” conversations they should be having.
Iris Jardiel and Luke Wechselberger seem doomed.
The couple has been together for five years, but Luke has strayed from the relationship a handful of times.
This has caused Iris to have major trust and jealousy issues.
Luke has jealousy issues too given that his girlfriend is a “party girl” who gets a lot of attention from other men. This is why Luke had sought out attention from other women.
Are There Too Many Trust Issues To Make It Work?
Iris is also hoping their time on the island will help Luke get in touch with his emotions.
She explained, “Luke can’t get emotionally vulnerable with me, and he doesn’t show me he loves me enough.”
“I just really have a hard time expressing the emotions I have for love,” Luke admitted.
Iris expressed how much she doesn’t want “Temptation Island to tear them apart.
“Luke is the one,” she said. “I want to make it out with you [Luke].”
After meeting both the male and female singles, Luke expressed that he’s more worried for Iris than himself.
He also was adamant that if any cheating happens on the island, their relationship is over.
