Love Island USA has aired a same-sex relationship in the villa, with Kassy Castillo and Johnnie Garcia sharing a kiss.
The pair’s friendship has evolved since the latter entered the villa as a bombshell, and the latest episode revealed that the duo were prepared to take their relationship to the next stage.
In a clip shared by the reality show’s official media channels, Kassy and Johnnie began talking on the sofas as they sought to gauge how they felt about each other.

“I obviously find you attractive, I just didn’t know if you felt the attraction too. I just wanted to know if you were seeing that,” began Kassy, with Johnnie responding: “Bitch I been seeing it, what do you mean?”
“We joke around and stuff, but I didn’t know if its really joking or not,” asked Kassy, with Johnnie stating: “I’m not joking.”
“I kept looking at you, and I kept wanting to talk to you. So I was like ‘I’m low-key down for this,’” added Kassy, before Johnnie revealed more about her feelings.
“I like people that bring out a fun side in me, and I feel fun when I’m with you,” she said. “I feel comfortable when I’m with you. Those aren’t things you often find in people where you’re [on the island] – you get to be somebody else when you’re with them.”

Kassy, who joined the villa on the first day, responded: “I think we’d be cute together, and I wouldn’t mind exploring more whenever.” A grinning Johnnie looked around and asked “How about now?”, with the pair sharing a kiss before giggling.
While the pair will have to wait until the next recoupling ceremony to couple up, the villa recently welcomed a star from the UK version of the show, with Scott van-der-Sluis entering as a bombshell last week.
Love Island airs on ITV2 and streams on ITVX.
