Aug. 23 UPDATE: At the reunion episode, we learn that Vanessa and Roberto are not together. In fact, they share that they didn’t even make it a week after leaving Temptation Island. The reason? Roberto lied about how close he really was with Desiree (and we mean this literally and figuratively).

Temptation Island season 5 episode 10 was explosive, to say the least! The episode gave us all so much to think about. More than anything, we saw a lot of growth from the two couples “Final Bonfire – Part 1” focused on. But those final minutes changed everything. The question on our mind is — are Roberto and Vanessa still together? Spoilers ahead!

If you have not yet watched season 5 episode 10, titled “Final Bonfire – Part 1,” go check it out before reading ahead as we dive into significant spoilers. Final spoiler alert. 

The first couple to reunite at the bonfire are Christopher and Marisela. Things went as we predicted, Christopher chose to leave the island with Alexius (but only because Marisela made it pretty clear she does not want to get back together). Marisela, on the other hand, chose to leave the island alone, content and motivated to continue working on herself.

The second couple to reunite, was Roberto and Vanessa. Everything was going great, Mark L. Walberg even complimented the couple on their notable growth. Mark comments how he doesn’t even recognize Roberto or Vanessa. And we agree, compared to when we first met the two, these are two different people. But not so fast.

After a chat, Roberto and Vanessa appear to come to an understanding. They hear each other out and agree that they can both work on their relationship. But then, Vanessa asks Roberto if he has slept in the same bed as Desiree. Roberto is honest and tell Vanessa that he has and Vanessa loses her cool. She yells at him and is so angry, disappointed, and hurt.

Are Roberto and Vanessa from Temptation Island still together?

The truth is, we are not sure! We did as much social media stalking as possible, but were not able to find a clear answer. However, if you want my guess, Roberto and Vanessa are not together. Now, even if they do decide to leave the island together, that doesn’t mean they can’t break up after.

On her Instagram, Vanessa is living her best life and we love this for her. Tracking down Roberto’s Instagram page was more difficult, but he does have plenty of selfies and photos to share. It’s important to note that they both reside in California. It’s a big state, but I do wonder if they have bumped into each other since their time on Temptation IslandWho knows? We could be completely wrong and they did stick together and are working on their relationship.
