All the while, Javen would like for Shari to experience dating other men since she's never dated anyone else besides him. Will Javen stray and cheat again or will he prove to Shari that he is a changed man?
- Evan Smith, 28, and Kaci Campbell, 29, who currently reside in Los Angeles, CA.
Evan and Kaci went to rival high schools and connected right before college. They have been dating on and off for 10 years, exclusive for the past five years.
Throughout the past ten years, Evan and Kaci have grown alongside each other through every success and hardship. They believe in one another, but something has been holding them back.
Kaci is ready for marriage and motherhood, and while Evan says he is too, he just can't bring himself to get down on one knee.
Kaci is tired of waiting and knows this experience will open their minds and hearts to ensure they are soul mates and help them commit to the next stage of their life. Will Evan get cold feet or will he finally agree to propose to the woman of his dreams?
- Karl Collins, 31, and Nicole Tutewohl, 25, who currently resides in Chicago, IL.
Karl and Nicole met at the gym and have been dating for two-and-a-half years.
A fun, outgoing and down-to-earth couple, Karl and Nicole are always up for an adventure. They are both passionate about fitness and met at the gym while Nicole was still in another relationship.
After her previous relationship fizzled, Nicole and Karl began dating and over two years later, they are trying to determine what is next for them. Both are starting to feel stagnant -- but is it just that their honeymoon phase is over or are they getting bored of each other?
On top of that, Nicole feels that Karl is her first true love, yet questions what "real love" even means. Will Nicole realize that she already has real love with Karl or will she let herself be stolen away by another man like once before?
- John Thurmond, 35, and Kady Cannon Krambeer, 30, who currently resides in Fort Worth, TX.
John and Kady met through the dating app Bumble and have been dating for three years.
Kady is a country girl who has always been the long-term girlfriend, but never the bride. After meeting John, she finally felt she met her partner in life. John and Kady balance each other out and push one another to be the best versions of themselves.
However, Kady constantly questions John's masculinity and has always wanted an "Alpha guy." The two of them both thought they were ready to take the leap towards marriage, but something held them back.
As they got closer to that monumental step, they began to re-evaluate and together they want to use this journey to figure out who they are separately. Will the couple's self-control be stronger than you think?
Based on Temptation Island's trailer, it appears temptation will get the best of several individuals and could break up one or more of the established couples.
