Winter Love Island stars Tanyel Revan, 25, and Kai Faigan’s relationship has moved through different gears within the shortest time frame. The duo was originally coupled up on day one but are currently in a pair with other people. During one of the recent recoupling ceremonies, 19-year-old Anna-May Robey picked Kai, 26, while Tanyel chose Ron Hall, 25.
The new set of couples have spent the last few days getting to know each other — however, Tanyel and Kai have always maintained some sort of connection. In one of the recent episodes, Kai left his current partner Anna-May Robey in tears after he decided to cool things off with her. The PE teacher claimed he saw them more as friends before leaving the visibly distraught Anna-May.
Later that evening, Kai had a deep conversation with Tanyel. The pair admitted that they saw their current partners more as friends instead of lovers. Kai opened up a bit more and revealed he had feelings for Tanyel. The chat ended with Kai planting a kiss on Tanyel’s lips, which she tried to avoid. While some fans found their intimate moment cringeworthy, another section of viewers believed the couple looked good together.
Winter Love Island Fans Think Kai and Tanyel Have Real Feelings For Each Other
The kiss between Tanyel and Kai was a bit awkward, but clearly, from the intimate moment, they both seemed happy to be in each other’s embrace. That interaction filled many of their shippers with hope, and they have since taken to social media to drum up support for the couple. While commenting on a Reddit thread, many fans agreed the two have real feelings for each other and expected them to go the distance. One comment read:
“I like them a lot actually. I think it’s good that they each tried w/ their 2nd choice & ultimately found their way back to each other. I think they have potential to be a strong couple.”
Another Winter Love Island fan admitted that their kiss was “cute in a nervous way.” The user went further to express optimism that the kiss would maybe spice things up between them going forward.
Winter Love Island Fans Think Kai Is Too Boring For Tanyel
Tanyel and Kai’s intimacy on Tuesday’s episode caused quite a debate about the duo’s compatibility. The conversation on Reddit garnered several comments with varying opinions over the last few hours. While a section of the Winter Love Island fans glimpses potential in the couple, some fans are more realistic about their chances. Many of them feel that Kai is quite boring for Tanyel and that it would eventually work against their relationship.
Many fans admitted that Kai was good-looking but claimed he did not have a big enough personality to match Tanyel. For most of them, their relationship was only born out of convenience, and they believe things may unravel between the two once they realize their differences. Some other viewers think Tanyel deserves more, and Kai clearly does not fit the bill. They see the hairstylist as the pick of the girls on the series and feel she has the potential to be part of a more entertaining pair.
Some Winter Love Island Fans Think A Bombshell Might Separate the Two
In the aftermath of Tuesday’s episode, Tanyel, and Kai’s chemistry continued to cause debate, with almost everyone sharing their thoughts on the hot topic. Many Winter Love Island fans think that Tanyel is only with Kai because he is the best option in the villa. However, they see things changing swiftly if a new bombshell joins the show. Another user believes they both can still be swayed. The comment read:
“They have sexual chemistry but I think they’ll be easily swayed in Casa. Both have the potential to come back with someone else”
Meanwhile, the hot topic was also discussed on the Love Island: The Morning After podcast. While appearing on the podcast alongside Indiyah Polack and Sam Thompson, Luke Franks revealed he does not think Tanyel and Kai have strong chemistry. He added that he would test them by sending a bombshell into the Villa. Tanyel and Kai certainly see something in each other that has closed them off from every other possible connection in the villa. It would be interesting to see how far they can take their relationship — with or without a bombshell.
