Love Island Australia 2021 stars Zoe Clish and Courtney Stubbs have spilled juicy details about their post-show breakups and feuds in a new YouTube video.
While the bombshells left the villa “loved-up” with their beaus Chris Graudins and Noah Hura, things quickly crashed and burned for both couples in the following weeks.
Now, Zoe and Courtney have taken to the latter’s YouTube channel to answer prying questions from fans in a game of “Say It or Sip It”.
The crux of the drinking game is that you either answer the immediate question or, if you’re too chicken to ‘fess up, take a sip of your chosen drink — in this case, it was a slab of Smirnoff seltzers.
So, what did Zoe and Courtney have to say for themselves?
Are Lexy Thornberry And Chris Graudins Dating?
This is perhaps the number one question on every Love Island Australia fan’s mind RN.
Fans of the hit dating show are convinced the former co-stars are now current lovers after a series of Instagram stories and comments hinted at a relationship between the pair.
To refresh your memories, Chris recently split from Zoe, with whom he finished runner-up during the 2021 season, while Lexy was coupled up with Ryan Reid for a short time.
While the pair denied rumours that they were hooking up, Zoe has broken her silence on the alleged couple and, well… it’s very telling!
When asked what the deal is, the 26-year-old cryptically responded: “Whatever’s happening it’s not my news to tell or for me to talk about, so, yeah.”
Hmmm, something tells us there’s a little more to that story than she’s letting on!
Who Ended Things Between Courtney Stubbs And Noah Hura?
Five days following the Love Island Australia 2021 finale, Courtney and Noah both took to Instagram to announce their split.
At the time, the pair cited that the split was amicable and came as the result of border closures causing a rift between the two.
However, for the first time ever, Courtney has confessed who really ended the relationship.
“I actually didn’t break up with Noah,” the Gold Coast-based beauty revealed. “He broke up with me.
“I’ve never announced that but here it is!”
While Courtney admits she isn’t seeing anyone at the moment, Noah was recently spotted getting cosy with influencer and fashion mogul Mia Fevola.
On Whether They’re On The Hunt For A Man
When asked if they were “keen on finding someone” at this point in their lives, Zoe and Courtney had very similar answers.
Spoiler alert!! They’re more focused on their careers than finding their next bae.
“I think this year is going to be a really big year for me,” Courtney responded, adding that she’s unsure whether a guy would fit into her life right now. “I’m not actively looking, if he comes, he comes but I’m very much ready to grind and work on myself and my career.”
Zoe also agreed that 2022 is going to be a “really busy year”, but she isn’t shut off to the idea of romance.
“I’m open,” she teased. “i’ not closing myself off being like, ‘No absolutely not,’ but… I do love being able to do what I want when I want.”
Zoe Clish On Her Relationship With Chris Graudins
During the video, Zoe revealed to fans that she and Chris have been in contact following their breakup.
“Chris and I have spoken a little bit,” she admitted, adding: “More just like checking in, how are you going, but I don’t really talk to him anymore”.
When asked whether she thinks she “dove into things too quickly” with Chris, Zoe said that was “absolutely” the case.
“I am a slow burner,” she said. “I have never talked about my feelings so much in my life [like I did on Love Island].”
Noting that she is generally “very light-hearted”, the Gold Coast native says she wouldn’t typically be “sitting there having those serious chats within two weeks of knowing someone.”
And would she ever get back with her riot officer beau? “No,” she said, adding that they are “two very different people”.
Would Courtney Stubbs Pursue Something With Nic Love
During their time on the show, Courtney’s blossoming friendship with co-star Nicholas Love became a topic of contention between her and bae Noah.
Now Courtney has addressed whether she would pursue a relationship with Nic seeing as they are both single.
“I honestly never considered it,” she admitted. “I’m very much a loyal person… because of Noah and knowing how sensitive the topic of Nic is to him, I would just never go there out of respect to Noah.”
“Like, I respect you too much to like hurt you by getting with one of your friends.”
Why Courtney Stubbs And Aaron Waters Don’t Get Along
It’s no secret to fans of Love Island that Courtney and her co-star Aaron Waters had a bit of a love-hate relationship.
When one follower questioned the 23-year-old on the state of their friendship, Courtney reiterated that the pair “definitely don’t hate each other”.
“Aaron and I just clash a lot,” she confessed. “We’re just naturally not best friends.”
However, she said that despite this, they’re not on bad terms — even after Aaron dissed her on the Where’s Your Head At? podcast.
“We’ve talked about it and we’re fine,” Courtney said. “I think when everyone comes to the Gold Coast or we meet again, we’ll definitely all hang out,”
