Love Island fans are happy to see couple back together
Mackenzie gained over 202,000 followers since competing on Love Island. Most of them are happy to see Mackenzie and Connor back together. However, they didn’t always feel this way. They didn’t like watching them because of Mackenzie’s waterworks and Connor’s up-and-down feelings.
But most of Mackenzie’s followers were happy for the couple. Others congratulated the blonde beauty for her milestone moment. Even Love Island alumni took to Mackenzie’s Instagram post to celebrate her.
“Yassss thrive boo!” the reality star wrote.

hey y’all! it’s Mackenzie here. first off, I want to give a HUGE thanks to everyone who watched the show this season and shared in this wild ride with us🤗✨ if you saw tonight’s episode, then you know that Connor has left the villa…SINGLE!🙌🏼💕 Gus & I have been patiently waiting for him on the outside and we cannot wait to welcome him home! We have missed him SO much. Second thing I want to say is…I understand that because Connor and I met and fell in love on a TV show, that a lot of people will have their opinions about us. And everyone is 1000% entitled to those opinions, just PLEASE please keep in mind, that the public has only seen a very small percentage of our relationship. Sadly, an hour long episode cannot capture the countless little moments that Connor and I shared in the villa. But this is just the beginning for us! And you have not seen the last of Gus either!🐻 P.S. @connormtrott I promise to never complain about your farting again…that’s how much I miss you💔💔 see you soon my love. @loveislandusa @cbstv #loveislandusa
Connor showed his love and appreciation for her in the comments section.
“I’m so unbelievably proud of you beautiful!” he wrote. Fans flocked to his comment to remark how cute they are together.
Love Island airs Saturday night, September 26 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
