Love Island’s second-season finale featured Justine Ndiba and Caleb Corprew winning the season and splitting the $100,000 grand prize during Wednesday night’s broadcast on CBS.
Love Island home viewers voted Justine, a 27-year-old billing coordinator and go-go dancer from Rockaway, NJ, and Caleb, a 24-year-old IT sales consultant from Oklahoma City, OK, as “America’s Favorite Couple” over the runner-up couple Cely Vazquez, a 24-year-old legal secretary from Sacramento, CA, and Johnny Middlebrooks, a 22-year-old student from Chesapeake, VA.
“This is it. America has been watching your entire journey and has fallen in love with [the Final 2 couples] but only one couple can win,” Love Island host Arielle Vandenberg said at the end of the broadcast.
“The winners of Love Island 2020 are Justine and Caleb. Congratulations, Justine and Caleb!”
Both of the Final 2 couples committed to each other during the five-week season and believe they found true love while being sequestered with other Islanders in a villa on top of Caesars Entertainment’s boutique hotel, The Cromwell, in Las Vegas, designed to be a “bubble” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“It literally feels like a dream!” Justine gushed after her victory was announced.
“I love this girl,” Caleb added. “And I am very fortunate to be standing with her today.”
After crowning Justine and Caleb champions, Arielle asked the winners to each pick a golden envelope. In one envelope, there was a $100,000 grand prize, and in the other, there was nothing.
The person to receive the money envelope could choose to keep all the money for him or herself or split it with his or her partner.
If the $100,000 recipient chose to keep all the money, Justine or Caleb could be left going home with no money, and maybe even a broken heart.
Caleb ended up with the envelope with the $100,000 prize inside, and he ultimately chose to split the money with his new girlfriend, who therefore walked away from Love Island with $50,000.
“No question about it — I want to split it with my girl, Justine,” Caleb announced.
Arielle determined Caleb was truly on the show for love and it was an incredible end to the cast’s Love Island journey.
