Gather around the fire pit for some major news: the winners for the inaugural Love Island Games have been declared!
Monday’s finale revealed Love Island USA Season 2 winner Justine Ndiba and Love Island UK Season 4 contestant Jack Fowler as the winning couple. Their fellow Islanders then voted for Justine to win the $100,000 grand prize, and she had the option to either keep the money or share it with Jack. Citing her strong connection with him, Justine opted to split the money.

Although Jack and Justine were the early favorites, their victory does come on the heels of a controversial decision. Ahead of the semi-finals in the penultimate Episode 18, the pair won the power to save one of the bottom three couples from elimination. They chose to spare Mitch and Zeta, sending Imani and Ray as well as Scott and Courtney home. This spurred an emotional reaction from Ray, who called them out for betraying him for the sake of the competition.
Filmed from a lavish villa in Fiji, the Love Island offshoot brought together different Islanders from around the globe — including USA, UK, France, Australia, Sweden and Germany — for a second chance at love.
Participants faced both team and couples’ challenges while navigating “dating, eliminations, recoupling, dramatic arrivals, and new competition twists and turns that help control the game like never before,” per the official synopsis.
Love Island UK presenter Maya James served as the host while Iain Stirling reprised his role as narrator for the reality competition.
