The Truth About Trina Njoroge From Love Island USA

"Love Island USA" is the spicy reality series that sees 12 singles head to a paradisiacal island to find love by coupling up and potentially winning a cash prize. Last season, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show was displaced from the usual dreamy island location and instead shifted to the Las Vegas Strip, per Screen Rant. Season 3 was back to business as usual with the islanders heading to Hilo, Hawaii, and the picturesque locale only seemed to add fuel to the chemistry between the cast members. Cashay Proudfoot and Isaiah Harmison coupled up and swapped a passionate on-screen kiss that had fans buzzing, per Cosmopolitan. Many noted that this season of "Love Island USA" was much steamier than its U.K. counterpart.

The show's host, Arielle Vandenberg, believes this crop of islanders came in with the right mindset to find a potential match. "Everyone is open to finding the right person," Vandenberg told Women's Health. She said all 12 contestants were "staying true to themselves and are open to learn about themselves." Even after being paired up, the contestants kept their options open to possibly connecting with another mate. Trina Njoroge was coupled with Jeremy Hershberg at the onset of the season, and she was more than happy to wind up with Jeremy. "He's everything; he looks like a Ken doll. He has a great personality," she told the other women.
