IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!
No, seriously, it’s the final countdown to the FINAL bonfire on season four of “Temptation Island.”

Four couples came to “Temptation Island” looking to strengthen their bond, connection and trust.
What’s unraveled over the course of nine episodes has been titillating!

In the sneak peek, we get an inside look at what goes down at the girl’s villa.
Iris Jardiel found her groove with “Temptation Island” alum, Deac Conti, from season two.
“It’s been really great having Deac by my side to make me feel supported,” Iris says. “He’s helped me realize that I’m not sure if Luke and I are meant to be together.”

Both Iris and Luke Wechselberger have not found love or lust on “Temptation Island,” but rather companionship with their respective singles.
While speaking to Deac, Iris tells him, “I have a lot to say. I just need to figure out how to say it. I think I came out stronger than ever.”
Deac gives Iris his stamp of approval.
Ashley Rodriguez slowly warmed up to Blake Blumenshine throughout season four.
She came to ‘TI’ with her boyfriend of seven years, Lascelles Lagares. The couple were definitely feeling the seven-year-itch and felt it was time to see if they could flourish outside of their codependent relationship.
Lascelles most DEFINITELY flourished and fell in love with Trace Winningham.
However, Ashley was a bit more guarded and slower moving with the singles.
During their final “goodbye” Ashley praises Blake telling him, “You kind of showed me like a whole new way to view life and appreciate life, and like a whole new way to love and show the love.”
Blake responds by encouraging Ashley to not let the independence and strength she found on ‘TI’ go to waste.
“You know you worked so hard to get this Ashley out of you and everything like that, so, be who you are, who I know you are,” he tells her lovingly.
During a confessional, Ashley admits, “It’s very hard to say ‘goodbye’ to Blake and I’ve never had a guy look at me the way Blake looks at me. I don’t want to lose that.”
They seal their goodbye with one two last kisses.
Gillian and Tommy have formed a high school sweetheart relationship throughout the course of season four.
The two were heavy with PDA, but never let themselves go all the way… for their own personal reasons.
It Must’ve Been Puppy Love
Gillian admitted to liking Tommy more than he liked her, which caused a tiny bit of turmoil for the couple.
But, given how smitten they’ve been with one another, they quickly moved past any frustrations or annoyances.
Gillian admits she’s bad a saying “goodbye,” but Tommy reassures her “it’s not ‘goodbye,’ it’s see ya later.’”
Unfortunately, outside of the island, the two are not geographically close to one another which makes any relationship extremely difficult.
“I want you to have you space and your independence and I don’t want to be…” Gillian says before trailing off.
“If you think that we’re leaving this island and I’m just not going to talk to you again, you’re crazy,” Tommy tells G. “You’re not just somebody that’s on the back burner and you’re not just somebody I’m not going to think about and remember.”
Gillian responds, “It’s not that I think you’re going to forget that I exist, it’s just that the way that I would want to exist in your life is just not possible on either end, for either one of us right now. I just can’t get what I want. That has been a big lesson, because I usually get what I want.”
During a confessional Gillian tells the camera, “Tommy and I definitely enjoy each other’s company. I think we have feelings for each other. I think there are a lot of logistical things that are working against us, but we are just going to continue talking and seeing how life goes.”
