  • Spoiler Alert: this article contains spoilers for the final episodes of Temptation Island SA.
  • The first season of Temptation Island South Africa came to an explosive end on Thursday with a two-part reunion special.
  • The show followed four couples on a journey to discover if they're ready to commit to one another while evading temptation.
  • While two couples shares news of engagements, the reunion was also filled with jaw-dropping scandals and confrontations.

Twitter users were not shy when it came to sharing their views on the four couples who entered South Africa's first season of Temptation Island.  

The show came to an explosive conclusion with a two-part reunion which aired on Showmax on Thursday. 

Based on the Banijay-owned hit reality format, Temptation Island South Africa followed four couples at a crossroads in their relationship, where they had to mutually decide if they were ready to commit to one another for the rest of their lives or go their separate ways.  

Together, the couples experienced a luxurious holiday in paradise (aka Knysna), where they lived separately - with 20 sexy single men and women who were looking for love.

This last taste of the single life was meant to help answer their most difficult questions about their relationship, like: "Are we meant to be?" and "Is there someone better out there for me?" 

After the reunion special, here's where each of the couples left off: 

Justin and Estelle, and Sifiso and Musa, are engaged! 

At the reunion, Justin Fritz and Estelle Langa announced that they'd passed the test and are engaged, as did Sifiso Ndlazi and Musa Qubinkomo. But both relationships immediately faced fresh challenges. 

First, one of the singles, Angelique Samuels, alleged that, after the show had ended, she met with Justin at a park, and they kissed. 

Then another single, Dimpho Khoabane, alleged that she kissed Sifiso during Temptation Island South Africa, in the bathroom away from the cameras. Both engaged men denied the allegations.
