Love Island USA season 5 concluded in August 2023, and viewers saw Taylor Smith and Carsten “Bergie” Bergersen leave as a couple. The 24-year-old Orange County woman and the 23-year-old Cottage Grove man had an interesting journey on the popular reality TV show. The season began with Bergie entering on day one and trying his luck with various women. Unfortunately, the young star had a horrible time making a connection, which led many viewers to lose all hope in him. There was some suggestion he wouldn’t find anyone and would exit the show empty-handed.
Bergie’s luck changed after Taylor entered Love Island USA season 5 on Day 17. The 24-year-old hotel manager initially didn’t fall in love with the young man. However, things got romantic after the Casa Amor, leading the two to pursue each other. The new couple introduced each other to their families during one episode. However, Bergie’s family members had some reservations about Taylor, which made it seem like they wouldn’t last. Surprisingly, the pair shocked everyone by becoming boyfriend and girlfriend during their final date. They scored the third place on the dating reality show.
