With the end of Love Island Australia on the horizon, we’ve struggled to track who has been eliminated.
After Jordan’s elimination came as a surprise earlier in the week, it was Stella’s turn to go.
Stella opened up to us about her experience in Spain, who she secretly wants to win, and what she *really* thought when Al Perkins entered the Villa.
How did you feel when you got dumped from the villa? Did you see it coming?
I was caught off guard. But, earlier that night I felt something special would happen–and it did.
Given the opportunity, would you change any of your past decisions?
I refuse to regret this experience; if I did, it would mean I didn’t make the most of what I had. If I went into the experience already knowing what I know now, maybe doubt and fear would linger less. But no, I want to look back on this confidently and without a second thought.
Did you have any eyes for anyone in the villa that you didn’t get a chance to pursue?
Hmm, let me think about that. No, I don’t believe so. Throughout the show, I formed meaningful connections with multiple people and am content with how everything played out.
If you cannot watch Love Island Australia in countries such as USA and NZ, try utilizing a VPN to connect to an Australian server and watching it on 9Now.
When Al came in, you were excited, right? But then nothing happened between the two of you. Why do you think that was?
If I’m being truthful, when Al came in, I was more astonished than anything else. It wasn’t like I saw him and thought, ‘this is the man I’m going to spend the rest of my life with.’ More like ‘omg, this is so extreme.’
We both acknowledged that we wanted different lifestyles after our date, so it was easy to transform our relationship from romantic to friendship.
Did Al turn out to be different than what you thought he would be, based on what you had seen of him on Married at First Sight?
Al is a very lovable person. He was slightly different than I expected, but I think that was because he was portrayed as more of a party boy on MAFS. Maybe because they drink on that show, the environment is different. But he was much more reserved and engaged than I thought. Either way, he’s a great guy.
What was your favorite moment during your time on Love Island?
My date with Jordan was terrific; we went to a winery and stomped grapes in barrels which was such a unique experience that I’m glad we got to share together. We both had an incredible time, which we’ll never forget.
If you were to leave reality TV, would you do it again? Whether on Love Island or another show, of course.
I would definitely do reality TV again – it was a great experience. Love Island is a bit daunting because my experience was rocky. I’d instead do something like a cooking show, which would be more fun.
Jordan was a big highlight for me because it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
