With Love Island Australia 2021 all wrapped up, we can’t help but wonder what the couples from the show’s first two seasons are up to now.
Compared to the cheating scandals, walkouts, and intruder ‘Bomb Squads’ of the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Love Island Australia 2021 has been relatively tame.
Returning to post-villa life is a YUGE adjustment for many couples, and whilst some flourished, others cracked under the pressures of the outside world.
We have done the ultimate Insta deep-dive to find out where the couples from Love Island seasons past are at now.
Maybe this will give us some insight into the future of the current contestants?
Josh Packham and Anna McEvoy
Love Island wasn’t about to be Josh’s last crack at reality TV fame.
He and twin brother Luke Packham (who was also on season 2 of Love Island Australia) surprised fans after being announced as contestants on the latest season of The Block: Fans Vs Faves earlier this year.
The boys came in second place after a tone of hard work and, of course, serving up a splash of drama (and by drama we mean the shows biggest cheating scandal, like, ever).
Anna has also had quite the impressive career of her own since the show ended.
The model-turned-influencer currently hosts the Where’s Your Head At? podcast, alongside fellow Love Island alum Matt Zukowski.
On the podcast she discussed her breakup with Josh, revealing she was surprised they even won since they both entered the villa as intruders.
Anna is currently dating Michael Staples, with the two becoming insta-official in September this year.
Tayla Damir and Grant Crapp
The pair won us over in the very first season of Love Island Australia in 2018, walking away with the massive $50k prize at the end.
BUT it turned out that Grant actually was actually a dog! He had girlfriend on the outside the whole time and was using the show to promote his clothing brand – WTAF!
The pair called it quits only two weeks after leaving the villa, and poor Tayla was left absolutely devastated.
She is doing much better now though, and has even snagged herself a hunky AFL beau!
Taylor is reportedly engaged to Richmond AFL star Nathan Broad and is on her way to becoming a WAG!
Grant is still with *secret* girlfriend Lucy, and the pair even have a daughter together now!
His brother Brent Crapp tried his luck on Love Island this season, entering the villa as a part of Casa Amor.
Unlucky for Brent, his brothers reputation was a part of his downfall and he left the villa as swiftly as he entered!
Josh Moss and Amelia Marni
Finally, one couple who DID work!
After finishing in third place on season 1 of Love Island Australia, Joss Moss asked Amelia Marni to officially be his girlfriend!
The pair recently celebrated their three year anniversary together, and continue to gush over each other on their social media accounts. They are both active on their socials and Amelia has started a YouTube career.
They recently joined Abbie Chatfield on Love Island Afterparty to spill some tea about their season of Love Island, and offer up their opinions on this season’s couples.
Jessie Wynter and Todd Elton
After a rocky start in the villa, Jessie Wynter was smitten when bomb Todd Elton walked in.
Coming fourth overall in the 2019 season, the couple unfortunately couldn’t make it work outside the villa. Jessie announced via Instagram that the pair had split in February 2020.
Now, fan fave Jessie has become a total TikTok sensation.
She has dropped some serious bombshells about what goes on behind the scenes on the show and has pretty much served as Love Island’s unofficial TikTok correspondent this season.
Since splitting with Jessie, Building Project Manager Todd has maintained a relatively low profile (aside from a few cheeky ab pics on the ‘gram).
Matt Zukowski and Cartier Surjan
Season 2 runners up Matt Zukowski and Cartier Surjan sadly split shortly after the show wrapped.
Matt and Anna were forced to deny rumours that they were faking a relationship to promote the pod.
The rumours were sparked by Kiera Maguire, who told Daily Mail Australia “I guess some people will do anything for clout.” Uuuum Ouch!
Cartier may not have found lasting love with Matt in the villa, but is currently dating NRL star Jake Simpkin.
Cartier began dating the West Tigers player in March this year, launching the relationship with a sweet instagram snap captioned “My ♥️.”
She also continues to model and runs the cutest instagram account EVER dedicated to her dog Honey Bee.
Eden Dally and Erin Barnett
Season one runners up Eden Dally and Erin Barnett left the villa determined to make their romance work.
However, the pair announced their split shortly after the finale via a joint statement on Instagram.
”We wanted to share with you that after much deliberation, we have quietly parted ways.”
Eden has a new partner, Cyrell Jiminez, who made a name for herself on season 6 of Married at First Sight Australia. The couple now share a baby boy, Boston.
Erin is in a long-term relationship with 45-year-old Mick Russell, who features regularly on her Instagram.
