Winter Love Island fans noted their opinions about the long-term prospect of Will and Jessie’s relationship. When Will Young met Jessie Wynter, the stars seemed to align, the weather was perfect, and everything seemed to fall into place. The two went on to serve viewers an on-screen romance that had everyone truly believing in fairytales again.
However, the good times only lasted for a few weeks as trouble came rolling in for the duo with the Casa Amor challenge. Although fans expected the committed couple to ace the test, it didn’t turn out like that. While Jessie remained faithful, Casa Amor proved too much of a test for Will, and he had a fling with bombshell Layla.
Although Will confessed his wrongdoings to Jessie after Casa Amor and the two duly made up, the movie night episodes only exacerbated Jessie’s hurt, and she threatened to end things with Will. Jessie even refused to speak to Will for several days. However, the farmer managed to win her over via a carefully planned surprise with some help from other Islanders. Will poured out his feelings for Jessie in a sweet poem the Islanders read her.
Despite their reconciliation, their relationship has not been the same. Their romance seems forced now, as Jessie has looked unsure of her feelings for Will in some of the more recent episodes. As the season finale approaches with Will and Jessie still coupled up, fans have been weighing the possibility of their romance surviving outside the villa. And the topic has divided the fanbase.
Winter Love Island Fans Predict Jessie and Will Won’t Last
Jessie came into the Winter Love Island villa, buzzing about how she was looking to find love and settle down. Before her introduction, she also spoke glowingly about Will and his family-oriented values, so it wasn’t surprising that she immediately hit things off with the young farmer. Jessie gave her all in the relationship, so she felt hurt by Will’s betrayal. She has been unable to get past it, and for many of the fans, it is obvious that the two stand no chance outside the villa.
While commenting on a Reddit thread, many users noted that Jessie seems ready for a long-term relationship, whereas Will is too immature to deal with that kind of energy. One of the users, u/MapOverall5201 highlighted how all that was just a recipe for disaster and commented:
“No chance they’ll last outside. Jessie’s never been the same since Casa, and Will doesn’t seem ready to settle down. Not suited at all, unfortunately.”
Another Redditor u/LiveToCurve added:
“Yeah, I’m surprised by how many people actually think they stand a chance. Honestly, I don’t even get the vibe they like each other enough to do anything more than a lukewarm half-attempt at staying together.”
Winter Love Island Fans Think Jessie Hasn’t Fully Forgiven Will
Most viewers believe the major stumbling block to their relationship’s progress is that Jessie has not fully forgiven Will for cheating on her during Casa Amor. While some of the fans don’t seem to understand Jessie’s inability to move past Will’s Casa Amor shenanigans, given he quickly ended it with Layla, most of the fanbase is quick to jump to her defense.
The fans have described Will’s actions as the ultimate betrayal — given there were no prior red flags or justification. He just decided to act out of character for no reason at all. For many viewers, that is a scary thought, and it is understandable for Jessie to have her doubts.
On Reddit, u/Reasonable-Device832 summed up the pair’s relationship post-Casa Amor, saying:
“The spark and magic is gone. Jessie has been on edge ever since Casa, and lately, Will seems quite drained from having to reassure her (although he’s pretty patient and does validate her feelings, he’s ultimately the one to blame).”
Another fan, u/pickly_ricklyy, highlighted how the two initially seemed perfect for each other as they shared similar traits. The Winter Love Island fan points out that Will’s mistake in Casa Amor broke them, and they have been different since then. In truth, it has become painful to watch the two force their romance in recent weeks, knowing how smooth they were before Casa Amor. Hopefully, they can find a way to move past the incident and love themselves again without inhibitions.
