Love Island USA season 1 was added on Netflix on Dec. 1, and many people have already sped through the 22-episode season. The reality series may be a new addition to Netflix, but the first season actually aired on CBS back in 2019. With that being said, you might be curious to know where the contestants are today in 2022. As always, we’ve got you covered!
Love Island USA is the American counterpart to the British original series. It’s a dating game show featuring a group of singles, referred to as islanders, isolated in a villa whose goal is to try to win a $100,000 cash prize by coupling up and surviving to the end of the competition. But it isn’t just a competition. The islanders are also looking for love. But it’s not easy to find the one when everyone looks like they just walked off a runway. Yes, everyone’s good-looking!
In Love Island USA season 1, the couple to win the grand prize ended up being a couple who chose each other on the first day of the competition and stuck it out to the end. However, they didn’t last long as a couple after leaving the show. In fact, none of the top four couples could make it work. That’s shocking, right? So, what are the top four former couples from the show up to in 2022? Here’s what we know.
Elizabeth Weber and Zac Mirabelli from Love Island USA season 1 now
Elizabeth and Zac were the couple to win Love Island USA season 1 and walk away with the $100,000 cash prize. After leaving the show, they dated for a few months but broke things off sometime in 2019. Zac was the first to make their breakup public via a now-deleted Instagram story. Based on what Zac said in his Instagram story, the pair ended things on good terms. According to Zac, they broke up because they grew apart and had different interests. Elizabeth shared a similar sentiment about why they broke up through a now-deleted Instagram story. So, it looks like their breakup was really mutual.
Today, Elizabeth co-hosts the After Love Island podcast with fellow contestant Alexandra Stewart. She’s also a volunteer for a non-profit organization called “I Stand With My Pack.” It’s an organization providing help to save the lives of animals. Also, she works as a brand ambassador for several companies. You can find her on Instagram at the handle @ewebzz.
On the other hand, Zac currently lives in New York, working as a model. In March 2020, he signed with Ford Models. He also has a YouTube channel, but he hasn’t posted a new video since August 2021. You can find Zac on Instagram at @zacmirabelli.
Alexandra Stewart and Dylan Curry from Love Island USA now
Alexandra and Dylan placed second in Love Island USA season 1. However, like Elizabeth and Zac, Alexandra and Dylan called it quits shortly after the cameras stopped rolling. In November 2019, the former couple publicly announced their breakup via now-deleted Instagram stories. According to Alexandra, they tried to make it work but felt they were better off as friends. She also mentioned that an injury played a part in their breakup.
Today, Alexandra co-hosts the After Love Island podcast with Elizabeth Weber. After looking at her Instagram page, it appears she’s still close with some of her Love Island USA castmates. Dylan currently lives in San Diego, California, working on his fitness and living his best life. You can find him on Instagram at @dylancurry.
Caro Viehweg and Ray Gantt from Love Island USA now
Caro and Ray were the fan-favorite couple of Love Island USA season 1. They came in third place and tried to make a long-distance relationship work after leaving the show, but their relationship ultimately came to an end. According to Caro, she broke up with Ray because she felt he wasn’t ready for a committed relationship. The former couple later appeared on MTV’s Ex On The Beach, where viewers find out that Ray cheated on Caro in the past.
Today, Caro works as a model for FashionNova. She also has a successful YouTube channel. You can find Caro on Instagram at @caroviee. Ray has also collaborated with FashionNova and other brands. In addition, it appears he graduated from college on April 7, 2022, according to an Instagram post.
Emily Salch and Weston Richey from Love Island USA now
Emily and Weston were able to make it to the finals in Love Island USA season 1 but came in fourth place. They remained a couple after the show ended but ultimately ended things. Emily gave the reason for their breakup in a YouTube video. She mentions that she wasn’t the girl Weston wanted, and she was tired of trying to change herself for him.
Today, Emily works as a model for multiple brands. Weston is the CEO of his own content creation brand called XclusiV Productions, which is based in Dallas, Texas. You can find Emily on Instagram at @emilysalch and Weston at @westonrichey.
