Love Island Australia EXCLUSIVE: Rachael Evren says she was ‘shocked’ to watch ex Chris Graudins kissing newcomer Zoe Clish just hours after she was dumped from the villa
Rachael Evren was dumped from the Love Island Australia villa in a shock twist on Monday night in one of the most brutal exits in the show’s history.
Not only was the 21-year-old separated from her Love Island fling Chris Graudins, she then had to watch him kiss newcomer Zoe Clish just hours after her departure.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday, Rachael admitted she was ‘shocked’ to see Chris move on so fast.
‘Shocked’: Love Island Australia’s Rachael Evren has opened up about being blindsided by Chris Graudins following her shock exit on the show this week
‘I watched it the same time Australia did, so I watched the episode and he kissed that girl and I was like, “Oh my god. I can’t believe this is happening,”‘ she said.
‘I just poured my heart out for this boy. I was so vulnerable, telling him I 100 per cent see a future for us outside the villa with him, and it was like he took that and was like, “Yeah, that’s great, but I still want more.”
‘This is going to sound very conceited, but I just don’t think he’s gonna get any better than that.’
Rachael said she’d been ‘questioning everything’ she thought she knew about Chris.
Stunned: ‘I watched it the same time Australia did, so I watched the episode and he kissed that girl and I was like, “Oh my god. I can’t believe this is happening,”‘ she said
‘I’m 100 per cent open to talking to him and seeing his side of things… I need to know what’s going on because what he did was not okay,’ she said.
‘Essentially, he either lied to himself, or me, or this girl. So I’m like, “Who have you lied to?”‘
Before she was sent packing, a tearful Chris broke down and said he couldn’t bear to see her leave.
‘I’ve been close now with Rachael because I care about her. I’ve never met anyone that I’ve had that many common connections with,’ he sobbed.

After Aaron revealed Rachael was going home, the brunette pulled Chris aside to ask whether he would consider leaving the show with her.
Despite feeling ‘torn’ and breaking down in tears with the boys, Chris decided to stay on the show and give the Love Island journey ‘a crack’.
‘I at least owe it to myself to experience the journey and get it done. I’ve got to give this a crack,’ he said.

However, the buff riot squad officer moved on quickly, setting his sights on newcomer Zoe, who arrived at the villa in a tiny pink bikini.
Zoe admitted in a piece to camera she has ‘no trouble flirting with guys or getting to know someone’.
Things got hot and heavy when Chris and Zoe enjoyed a heart to heart on one of the sofas, with Chris describing Zoe as ‘confident’ and ‘pretty’.

‘You’re really confident. It’s good though, it’s really nice. It’s refreshing. If you come in here with a good mindset and attitude, you’re going to do really well,’ he began.
‘I think you’re very pretty. I was going to say I’d like to kiss you, but I was like I better not, hey. That’s probably a bit sudden.’
Zoe agreed to a kiss and it wasn’t long before the pair were making out.
