Meet the 4 Couples Testing Their Relationships on ‘Temptation Island’

While 24 sexy singles – 12 men and 12 women – are searching for love on Temptation Island, four couples are trying to figure out if they’ve already found The One. Longterm couple Evan and Kaci, high school sweethearts Shari and Javen, up-in-the-air duo Nicole and Karl and total opposites Kady and John all have one thing in common: their relationships have hit a wall.

While each pair have different struggles, all four couples believe they are meant to be together. However, they want to make sure, by enduring the ultimate test: dating others on Temptation Island.

Get to know the four couples below:

Nicole and Karl

When Nicole, 25, and Karl, 31, met at a gym two and a half years ago, she left her boyfriend for him. While Karl worries she’ll do the same to him, Nicole feels that Karl is her first “real love,” but wants to make sure she knows he’s The One. They’re also not sure if they’re just over the honeymoon phase or if they’ve already grown bored with each other.

Shari and Javen

High school sweethearts Shari and Javen have been together since they were 16. Now, at 25, they’ve decided to do the show to prove they’re really meant to be together. However, Shari’s not completely over the fact that Javen cheated while in college and he hopes she will experience dating other men since only ever dated him. They strongly believe the experience will just bring them closer.

John and Kady

This Texas couple have been dating ever since they met on Bumble three years ago. However, Kady, 30, has always wanted an “Alpha man” and constantly questions 35-year-old John’s masculinity. Both want to get married, but want to take the time to reevaluate themselves as individuals before taking the next step together.

Kaci and Evan

Kaci and Evan, both 28, have been on and off for 10 years, exclusive for five. They’ve grown up together and believe that they belong with each other but while Kaci is ready for marriage, something is holding Evan back and he can’t bring himself to propose. Her family feels that they’re “living in sin” and she feels like he’s giving her mixed signals.


Temptation Island premieres on USA Network Tuesday, January 15, at 10 p.m. ET. However, the first episode aired early on the network’s YouTube.
