Winter Love Island star Ron Hall’s recent actions show that nobody is beyond redemption. Since Winter Love Island premiered, Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins have become one of the most talked about couples from the series. Although the duo looked like the perfect match from the onset, viewers noticed Ron’s non-commitment to the relationship as time went on.
It was seemingly easy for him to light up once any bombshell entered the villa. His eyes widened when bombshells Ellie Spence and Sammie joined the contestants—while he joked about being a player with some of the guys. In contrast, Lana proved overly loving, forgiving her man whenever he erred. Yet it was not enough to stop his next move. Many criticized his behavior, maintaining that he was using Lana; they even hoped the blonde beauty would soon realize the real lies and dump Ron. However, in recent times, Ron has shown his loving side, which fans never witnessed for most of the early parts of the season.
Ron Stayed Loyal Through Casa Amor
Some of the season’s most shocking moments occurred during Casa Amor when the girls left the villa to meet the Casa Amor guys. Some relationships began experiencing cracks. Olivia played with some of the handsome men in Casa Amor and once jokingly talked about forgetting her partner’s name. Claudia filled the room with tears as she didn’t receive a note from Casey, Tanya forgot about her connection with Shaq, and Will Young found it hard to get his eyes off the Casa Amor beauties. But Ron, who had already garnished his resume with his bad-guy antics, did not snoop around in Casa Amor.
Instead, he remained unhooked to the distractions, proving he might have changed. This did not go unnoticed as the eagle-eyed fans recorded Ron keeping to himself. Though it left many in shock, they commended his efforts. Meanwhile, his sudden attitude didn’t convince some fans, who mentioned he probably changed his strategy to curry favor from viewers and eventually win. However, other fans countered this sentiment, reminding fans of Ron’s chaotic behavior earlier in the show, adding that if winning was on his mind, he would have behaved better. Another Redditor u/SomeMaterial, supported this theory, stating:
“Ron is very aware of how he hurt Lana for the first few weeks and made her sad. It feels like everything he does now he is putting in effort to make sure he doesn’t again. He wasn’t flirting with any girls at casa, he could’ve slept in the bed but he took the further step to make sure Lana would know she can fully trust him.”
Ron Treats Lana Better
Once Ron recoupled with Lana, he tried to be a better partner, treating her more respectfully. Although this only happened after he messed up countless times and Lana even had to dump him, still, it has placed him in a good light. Ron has gone out of his way to treat Lana as well as he can, a deep contrast to how their relationship started. The couple seemingly enjoyed spending time together and suddenly emerged as one of the favorites to win the season.
Meanwhile, Winter Love Island fans on Reddit have different views about Ron’s redemption, with some explaining that Ron hopefully only played his game early on by not immediately staying glued to Lana, as he intended to explore other options and find the perfect connection. However, the same Redditor gave Ron a light part on the back, praising him for stepping up after being called out, before ending with:
“I prefer Lana and Ron’s journey over the day one couples who then treat Casa Amore as an excuse to cheat.”
One fan also shared that although the couple is doing the right thing with their relationship, they have made the show less entertaining to watch. However, irrespective of what a person believes, Winter Love Island devotees will remain glued to the show rooting for their favorite couples, and Ron’s newfound attitude might just win him and Lana the season.
