Whilst it wasn't technically Nakia's choice, The Villa was turned on its head when Andy chose a not-completly-shut-off Nakia as his new partner, promptly leading to Kale's elimination.
His departure was awkward to say the least, especially since Nakia had promised the night before that if one of them was to be eliminated, they would leave together (which, spoiler alert she did not).
Again, a reminder that whilst Nakia was definitely interested in Andy, she didn't have much of a say on Kale's elimination. To be fair, neither did Andy - no one knew his decision would lead to an elimination, but that's just how the reality TV competition goes.
However, it was Nakia's attitude towards Kale following the elimination that upset some fans and Islanders who felt Kale's time in the Villa was cut unluckily shory...until he reappeared a mere few episodes later.
Enter Tyra. The same Tyra who had a great first date with Kale and has now found herself single in the Villa.
In the latest episode of the season, Tyra (who is best friends with Nakia) received a text inviting her on a date with a bombshell, who unbeknownst to her and the rest of the contestants, was actually Kale.
"I was kind of s******g myself if I'm honest," Kale tells WHO about the moment Tyra realised who her date was. "I had just been dumped and then was coming back to go on a date with a girl where I could end up getting dumped again....there was a fair bit of pressure."
"But I was also fairly confident that once I was alone at the table with her everything was going to work out on its own just because I remembered how we were when we initially had a moment [on the first date]. So I was just holding on to that and praying."
Although we'll have to wait a little bit longer to see how Tyra and Kale's new relationship unfolds, Kale is adamant he wouldn't change any part of his Love Island experience.
"If I chose Tryra from the beginning, would I be where I am now?" he asks, "It could change the future...so I probably would have left everything the same as c***y as it was."
