After a turbulent couple of months, the August 17 episode featured a talent show to lift everyone’s spirits. Little did Millie know, her piano playing skills would deliver infinite meme potential for her supporters.

Other islanders were trolled for their talents
Chloe’s capability for “foundation” math sent fans into a frenzy. One Twitter user commented on the “campness” of her chosen talent. Another simply stated that he “would’ve failed maths” if Chloe was his teacher.
While Teddy rapped about his journey on the show (“one-girl-two-girl-three-girls-four…”) Twitter users “cringed.” This year’s unofficial Love Island commentator and journalist Jason Okundaye compared his rapping to “Iggy Azalea.” Other users suggested it should’ve been Chloe up there instead.
