Love Island USA couple Josh Goldstein and Shannon St. Clair made a brief exit from the show. In last week’s episode, Josh revealed to the islanders that his sister passed away. He felt it was best to be by his family’s side during this devastating time. Shannon wanted to go home with Josh to show her support.
This comes after the couple had their next and final date together. During that time, Josh asked Shannon to be his girlfriend. They were the first and only couple to make their relationship official this season. Fans want to know if they’ll make it after the show.
Shannon and Josh became official on their first date
The Love Island USA Season 3 contestants have been coupled up since the beginning. Josh and Shannon overcame everything from trust issues to arguments over stick figure drawings and the infamous Casa Amor. Their relationship grew and blossomed in many ways. For their last date, the pair went zip-lining across a waterfall.
What a perfect way to end out the show. Josh admitted in his confessional that he’s falling in love with Shannon. He felt it was a good time to ask her to be his girlfriend. She couldn’t help but say yes. Shannon admitted that she finally felt like she found her person.
“I feel like I’m on cloud nine. I feel like I can totally see myself doing this with you on the outside,” Shannon said. “I mean, did I think I was going to meet somebody like on you ‘Love Island?’ No, I didn’t.”
