The third season of Love Island Australia premiered Monday night with a lot of drama.
Shortly after Jordan Tilli chose to mate with Jess Velkovski, he set his sights on beauty pageant queen Rachael Evren, with the couple sharing a steamy kiss in bed.
Viewers flocked to Twitter, with one Jordan described as a “running red flag.”

After enjoying some flirty chatter in the villa, Jordan, 28, admitted in one piece on camera that he should have gone with his gut and initially chose Rachael over Jess.
“When I chose Jess yesterday, I felt something… intuition that I should have gone with Rachael,” he said with a sheepish grin.
Jordan met Rachael on his and Jess’ bed and explained to Rachael how he feels more of a bond with her, despite Jess being his “physical type.”

In an on-camera piece, Rachael, 21, admitted that while Jordan is raising “red flags,” she’s still attracted to him.
“I stepped forward for Jordan yesterday and he’s got the whole European vibe going. He’s very confident and he’s very assertive, and he’s giving off big red flags. I’m attracted to red flags,” she said.
After their steamy make-out session in bed, Rachael bursts into tears when she tells her female co-stars how she feels like she’s “s**t” for breaking Jess’ trust.
“I feel bad, Jess seems like such a nice girl,” she said, holding her head in her hands.

She later admitted to the camera in a piece that she has definitely broken the ‘girl code’.
Meanwhile, Jordan didn’t seem to feel so guilty when he approached Jess, 23, to “confess” his sins.
After claiming he “didn’t mean” it would happen, Jess said she’s no longer interested in developing a connection.
‘It was not a good feeling. Why do you think you did it?’ she asked, to which he answered honestly, “I don’t know if our bond felt that strong and it did with Rachael.”
Jess said ‘it is what it is’ and that he revealed his true nature.

“Jordan is literally 28 years old pretending to be 18, like he’s growing up,” one wrote.
“Rachael didn’t look like she felt bad when her tongue was in Jordan’s throat. 100 percent crocodile tears,” said another.
‘Jordan is a walking red flag,’ one also posted, along with another who said ‘this is going to be a mess’.
