The dating series Love Island is pretty notorious for forming toxic relationships that often end bitterly. This may not always be true, as we’ve seen couples form inside and outside the show that at least end as good friends, if not lovers. Yamen and Christen were one such couple on the show, that seemed to get off well in the short time they had on the show.
Christen had been brought in as a replacement for the contestants that were eliminated, while Yamen had been on the show since day one. Yamen’s funny and charismatic personality led him to quickly find “Love” on the show, with Alana and later Aissata.
Christen was sadly eliminated after spending a really short duration of time with Yamen, and she left the house tearfully. As sad as she was, she wished Yamen the best and wanted him to be happy and find his true love. When the show ended, the duo supposedly hung out for some time and fell in love once again.
Rumors quickly became facts as Christen and Yamen started posting pictures together on their social media. Both were visually beautiful people, but the reason they were eliminated from Love Island was the fact that the audience could just not see their chemistry. After the duo started dating, they proved everyone otherwise and showed just how lucky they were to have met on the show.
Love Island USA: Christen Enters The House
The first season of the infamous reality dating show started airing its US Adaptation, which took place in Fiji. 5 couples from various backgrounds were to be put in the same house, with the same goal, to find their partner. The show involves filming these contestants to see how their relationships proceed.
Yamen was 24 when he came into the house, and worked as a Real Estate Agent in Los Angeles. Christen was 24 as well and worked as a Sales Business Developer for an apparel brand.

Yamen had paired up with Alana, and they both seemed to be enjoying each other’s company. Alana had gotten attached to Yamen, and when the time came for elimination, she was heartbroken when Yamen selected Christen over her. He was seen kissing Christen right when Alana was still leaving, making viewers hate him for his behavior.
However, Christen was shown to have a less interesting relationship with him while on the show. Both of them were fun people, and probably needed more time to realize their feelings. Christen ended up leaving the show as well and was replaced by Aissata.
