‘Life’s Done A 180, Man’: Where Are The Temptation Island Season 3 Contestants Now?
Two of the singles from "Temptation Island" Season 3 have found love with each other, while some of the couples give updates on where their relationships stand today.
"Temptation Island” Season 3 may have been the most jaw-dropping and scandalous yet, with plenty of steamy hookups (ahem, Kendal in bed with multiple women at the same time), breakups, and even an engagement! But now that “Temptation Island” is on its way back for Season 5, many may be wondering about some of the singles and couples from Season 3. Spoiler alert: A lot has changed for some of them.
For starters, Erin Smith tells USA she and Corey Sobcyzk couldn’t work it out, despite getting back together briefly after their reunion breakup.
“Since leaving the island, Corey and I had a lot of figuring out to do when we first left. I felt like we were better than ever, we were in that honeymoon stage and then unfortunately things just didn’t work out. Corey would be telling me one thing and then I would be watching something totally different,” she explained, adding that although they don’t keep in touch she thinks he’s “a great person.”
However, there was a major benefit of doing the show: Erin says she became very close with the other girls on the island. Hear more about who she keeps in touch with in the video, above.
Meanwhile, Kendal Kirkland confirms he doesn’t speak with Erica Washington or Alexcys Homan anymore. Instead, he’s found a new love, who he describes as “The exact kind of partner I’ve always wanted.” He’s not just focused on his new relationship, though; he’s also working on his self-improvement, noting he “had way too much fun on the island … I was mainly servicing what I wanted.”
As “Temptation Island” fans know, though, it’s not just the couples who make the show. The singles are an important component of it, too! While we were thrilled to see many of the couples make important romantic decisions, it’s especially shocking to learn two of the singles actually met up on the show and made a connection: Madilynn “Madi” Brown and Jesse Stephanos! In fact, the two are so serious, Madi moved in with Jesse down in Florida.
Madi is also still in contact with Nickole Ciszak, who tells USA, “My life has done a 180, man.” Not only is Nickole now living in Maui with a new boyfriend and working in ocean conservation after some time traveling, she’s also proud to say she’s 150 days sober.
To find out Erin’s one regret from the reunion, see Nickole’s new partner, learn more about Madi and Jesse’s relationship, and hear their advice for the new couples, watch the video, above.
Oh, and let's not forget about Kristen Ramos and Julian Allen who ended their time on "Temptation Island" by getting engaged at the final bonfire. They finally tied the knot in July of 2022 in a lavish and beautiful ceremony in Puerto Rico that some of their fellow islanders such as Chelsea Orcutt and Thomas Gipson attended. Speaking of Chelsea and Thomas, they also left the island together and, according to their social media, appear to still be going strong.
