Winter Love Island stars Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan have become one of the most beloved couples in the villa. At the beginning of the season, most fans claimed Kai lacked personality and was quite dull. It is important to note that he first coupled with Tanyel Revan at that point, and many even suggested she was too good for him. Kai would later couple up with Olivia Hawkins while Tanyel got evicted from the South African villa of Winter Love Island. Despite his new pairing, Kai performed underwhelmingly, and most fans didn’t see him progressing on the show.
Fast-forward to Casa Amor, and both Kai and Olivia return coupled up with new partners. While Olivia has remained dissatisfied in her new relationship, which has since resulted in her eviction, Kai’s season has surprisingly been sparked to life by his romance with Casa Amor girl Sanam. The two have become nearly inseparable, and Kai appears to be completely smitten by Sanam. He has consistently rebuffed Olivia’s advances in the last few days while prioritizing his relationship with Sanam Harrinanan.
Kai’s behavior has not gone unnoticed by fans, with the PE teacher quickly becoming a fan-favorite alongside his new beau. More recently, fans dedicated an unusual appreciation post to Kai on Reddit. While discussing his palpable chemistry with Sanam, many fans praised him for his dedication to Sanam and highlighted how far he has come from his early days in the villa. One of the fans u/Fraughtoverwrought wrote:
“I thought he was such a bore for so long – and to be honest, he’s still not exactly Mr. Personality – but we’re seeing such a nice side of him. Quietly quirky but also very sincere and firm in his beliefs.”
Kai and Sanam Avoid Villa Drama
Kai and Sanam seem to have created their separate world away from all the drama in the villa; the most intriguing part is that they appear to be having a swell time. In fact, their happiness has become so contagious that almost all the Winter Love Island fans want a piece of it. More recently, a fan on Reddit shared a clip of the duo loved up in the villa while dubbing them “the most wholesome couple in the villa.” The OP went on to wish the couple a clean ride to the finals. While commenting on the thread, one user, u/MainArmy5 gushed:
“I love how they aren’t getting involved in the bitching & backstabbing. It’s all just passing over them. Sanam really has brought out the best in Kai. I know it’s very slim chances, but I would love to see them win.”
Another Redditor, u/whowhogis chipped in, saying:
“Literally, may they continue to be unproblematic background characters instead of revealing secret awfulness.”
Kai and Sanam Have Real Chemistry
It is so amazing what the proper connection can do to someone; that is why people make a lot of fuss about finding their soulmate. Barely a month ago, Kai was the least likable Islander in the villa, but one Sanam later, he can’t seem to do any wrong in the eyes of fans. One fan, u/Knightboat17, highlighted this in the comment section:
“Still crazy to think that 3 weeks ago I wanted Kai gone as I thought he was so boring now he’s the best guy there and I want him to win.”
Most of the show’s fans have been completely blown away by the duo’s chemistry and are already drumming up support for them to win the show. Although they admit it might be a longshot, the fans feel no other couple is as deserving as them. Many fans also pointed out how Sanam looks at Kai, indicating she genuinely loves him. While still on the matter, some Redditors make an interesting observation about Sanam’s eyes. One of the users u/lightredemption said:
“She absolutely does have Disney princess eyes! She’s so gorgeous!! And with a chill and great personality to boot.”
Despite the early doubts, Kai and Sanam appear to be storming their way to the Winter Love Island finals. However, they are doing it in the cutest possible way, and whether they win or not, fans will love to see them go the distance out in the real world.
