If you’ve been enjoying all the Love Island 2022 drama and already have a favorite couple—you might be wondering which pairing is actually the most compatible and which islanders are just playing the game. Here’s what a behavior expert reckons of our lineup

While the ‘OG dating show’ has supplied us with some seriously memorable moments throughout the years and an endless supply of famous Love Island memes, it’s also helped several singles find love, with a number of Love Island couples still together from previous seasons—including the likes of Millie Court and Liam Reardon and Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury.

Now our 2022 couples are well on their way to catching real feels, but which islanders are actually genuine in their hunt for love? Behavior expert Inbaal Honigman, who has partnered up with online agency Reboot (opens in new tab), has analyzed the pairings and revealed which couples are the most compatible and actually stand a chance IRL.

Which Love Island 2022 couples are the most compatible?

Tasha and Andrew

Scoring the top spot are Tasha and Andrew, who have been together since the first day and were the first lucky couple to spend some alone time together in the Hideaway! 

Honigman has given them a score of 95% on the compatibility scale, following the second (very dramatic) recoupling.

She said: “Tasha looks directly at him as she picks him, she knows what she's going for, and she only has eyes for him. She is in love with him.”

Remarking on her other half, Inbaal added that Andrew knew she would pick him, with his eyes never leaving her face. He also envelopes her with his whole body, showing real feelings there.

Dami and Amber

Despite Amber now having left the villa, Honigman claims the pair were compatible, scoring them an 85%. Alas, Dami now has eyes for Indiyah and has started to make his move—so maybe they’ll be even more compatible together!

Jacques and Paige

One of the fan-favorite couples, Honigman has scored them 60% and hints there’s some serious chemistry between them. 

Remarking on their recoupling, she explains that: “Paige is coming across as honest and open—she's allowing her facial expression to remain natural and calm, and her words do the talking. She's not looking nervous at all, with a sweet, pouty smile, as if no one is watching, she reaches out towards her chosen boy.

“Jacques looks thrilled! He smiles with his full face, eyes, forehead and teeth, happiness all over his features, his shoulders stretched in pride. He's delighted she has picked him.”

Which Love Island 2022 couples are not compatible?

Ekin-Su and Jay

This troublesome couple has scored a 50% with Honigman claiming that Jay is not feeling the pairing as much as Ekin-Su following the recoupling…

She says: “Ekin Su's adorable body language is quite childlike, which shows that she is really all heart. She raises and clenches her shoulders, showing she's uneasy with her actions, but not taking responsibility for them—childlike."

Jay's body language on the other hand is completely neutral, as Inbaal says: “He's playing a good game. He's not displaying joy or grief, surprise or dismay. He's present, and he wants to see how it goes, but he can take it or leave it.”

Gemma and Davide

Unsurprisingly these two are not high on the list, despite showing previous interest for each other. Sadly, Gemma was coupled up with Luca but after the new bombshell, Danica chose him first, Gemma opted to be in a friendship couple with Davide.

Danica and Luca

Honigman gave these two a 0%, which makes sense since Luca pretty much told Danica he only has eyes for Gemma. 

Remember there are still six weeks left—which is plenty of time for heads to turn!
