At the start of Love Island Season 9 Episode 19, Shaq and Tanya will have a conversation to clear things between them about what happened at the Kissing Challenge in episode 18. They start the conversation with “you look nice” and all that. Then Shaq begins to speak about his feelings, he says that he was mad and angry with her because he cares so much about her. And Shaq will ask, “are we on the same page?” To this Tanya say, “We are” but I am stubborn, so it takes a minute.
Shaq is much more mature than any other guy in the villa. I say this because we have seen him being a big brother to the guys, giving them advice and correcting them when they are wrong. And in this conversation with Tanya, he acts very maturely as well and asks her to tell her side of the story.
Then we will have Kai and Oliva conversing with each other about the “all of a sudden connection”. And Kai will say that he did not want a kiss from Oliva at the Kissing Challenge because he wanted to save it for a special moment. And we may get to see them kiss in this episode. Then we will see Maya return to the show, and she will ask the Islanders to gather around the fire pit. Let’s see what will go down in this episode.
Love Island Season 9 Previous Episode Recap
Let’s first talk about what happened in the previous episode before going in for Love Island Season 9 Episode 19 Spoilers. In episode 18, Ron talks with Lana, and he basically admits that he’s feeling the pressure. Well, it felt like an admission, maybe it wasn’t, but that’s how I processed it. And he’s like “listen I’m gonna come out on top”.
Ron, do you actually feel like you are the best man for Lana? Or do you just want to present like the best man so that she will pick you, and then you will find another connection, sack her off, pursue that, stack that girl up, and then say you want Lana back again? Because honestly, this trend, we’ve seen it, it’s tired, we’re exhausted, and tell us a different story.
The race begins the next morning, and both men want to make breakfast for Lana. But Ron beat Casey to the chase. Ron’s cockiness alone is why I don’t want things to work in his favor. Honestly like, could he be the best person for Lana with all the people available? Maybe, but I just hate that he would even know that. I hate that for him he’s like “oh she’ll come back to me”.
The entitlement, the audacity, it just disgusts me, I hate it. The good thing for Lana is that she stuck to her guns. And Casey ain’t even faze, Casey’s like “that’s fine, go ahead and have your little breakfast”. He is like “I’m gonna talk to her when I want to talk to her”. And I think you’re going to be bothered, and guess who’s not going to be me.
Kai is also putting in some effort by making breakfast for Olivia. I’ve never seen him put in any effort for anybody. Kai if you like it, then it I love it, I guess. Because guess what, y’all gonna get together and get dumped at the same time. What a time that will be, and wouldn’t that just be great? I ship this connection, this is the best Connection in the Villa nobody can break you guys, you guys are the strongest, so pursue it. Just couple up today, head up to Maya, and tell her to come to the Villa today (puns intended).
The Kissing Challenge
The Villa gets a text that there will be a Kissing Competition, so of course, everybody’s got to have minty fresh breath. And in the competition, Kai gave his new boo Olivia an eight. she wanted a nine, but girl okay be humble. Samie got some good reports with Ron saying, “that was a making love kind of Kiss”. Tanyel, you’re gonna have a really hard time beating these allegations about you and Ron. Because why was she laying it on him thick.
Jessie did horrible, Jesse was abysmal, I think one of her scores was a zero point. So I said, “my girl”, but it’s okay, she has her man and she gonna stick beside him. Ellie went to Tom and got some good scores, that’s for sure. Tanya is not beating these allegations of being a player because of the way she went full-on and the way the scores were just through the roof, across the board, and this is where you start to see Shaq is getting a little annoyed. Last was Lana, she gave Casey a Little Neck kiss, I mean a Little Neck lick, and then kissed him. She’s trying to solidify her spot with him.
And the results were, last place was Jessie, while the winner was Tanya, witch Shaq wasn’t too happy about. It didn’t go well, but we’re going to leave that for the end because I have a question. Before we get to that, people have been murmuring about the whole Tanyel and Ron situation, and now with the game and how long that kiss was people are like “um there’s something there”.
I just feel like Tanya being Tanyel, it would have been pursued ages ago. But for the most part, I do believe her when she says honestly, “I’m just comfortable with that man”. Fon’t you don’t you guys have that one friend that you could flirt with him and say whatever you want to say because you know that ain’t never going anywhere, “I’m just really comfortable with you”, is that just me? Now Let’s talk about the spoilers for Love Island Season 9 Episode 18.
Love Island Season 9 Episode 19 Spoilers & Release Date
First of all, Episode 19 of Love Island Season 9 will release on 3rd February 2023 on ITV2. On to the Tanya and Shaq drama. The long and short of it is, she thought it was just a game, so of course, she wanted to win. And he was like, “but girl, I love you. So why are you doing your best”. The question I have for you guys is, was it disrespectful?
Because if you ask me, I would say yes. Tanya is still taking in the Love Island Experience for all it offers. So I can see why she wanted to in her best effort. She is like “Honey I am here to win, it is a game, I am competitive, why would I not perform to my best ability”.
But Aaron didn’t make a good point. He said, “we already know she is a good kisser. Because we kissed on the challenge. So there wasn’t a need for her to show out the way that she did”. I hate to side with him, but it did make sense. And unfortunately, even though that did make sense, Shaq’s response is not cool, it’s not cute.
The kicking off, the not even want to talk to her about it, going and to report to other people before you go and talk to the woman that you love, come on Shaq. I was just getting lulled by these two, I was just getting comfortable, and now you have just shaken me to the Core. I don’t even know what to think about this situation.
In Episode 19 of Love Island Season 9, we will definitely see Tanya and Shaq returning on good terms with each other. And they will be back to being the top and strongest couple in the Villa. Olivia and Kai will try to explore their connection, and we might get to see them share a kiss, and good for them. Maya will also return and has something for the Islanders
