Whatever Happened To Temptation Island's Javen And Shari?

Javen and Shari have been sweeties since high school, but they've had plenty of drama along the way. The couple arrived for season 1 of the Temptation Island reboot ready to put their love to the test. And what a test it was: The show takes four couples in committed relationships and separates them on a gorgeous island where they're given the opportunity to mingle with a dozen singles and see if their original partner is truly the one for them. At the end of the show — the dramatic final bonfire — each participant must decide whether to leave the island with their original partner, with one of the singles, or on their own.

For Javen and Shari, infidelity was a demon they'd already fought, and, according to Screen Rant, their stay on Temptation Island provided the perfect opportunity to slay it once and for all. Javen had cheated on Shari during college, and throughout the show, he viewed his time on the island as an opportunity to prove his loyalty to Shari. His plan worked, and after being the only man to resist the wiles of the Temptation Island, Javen proposed to Shari at the final bonfire.

Infidelity claims cause more trouble for Javen and Shari

For a while, it seemed the couple was doing well. They even launched a podcast, The Shari and Javen Podcast, where they would talk about pop culture, relationships, current events, and, of course, Temptation Island, but there hasn't been a new episode since August 2020.

Sadly, this may be due to a split between the two. Per CheatSheet, allegations of infidelity, this time from Shari, have come to light since their time on Temptation Island. Contestant Justin Sturm claimed that he and Shari hooked up while on the show, though the cameras never captured anything between them. Shari and Javen haven't responded to the allegations, but close followers of the pair's social media accounts noted Javen saying, "You cheated on me" to Shari in response to a post about how "Inconsistency is a sign of immaturity" (via CheatSheet).

At present, it seems the couple is no longer together. Shari shared on social media that she was going through a painful time, advising followers not to stay in unhealthy relationships, and Javen's response, which can now be found on Redditseemed to confirm rumors both of Shari's infidelity and of the couple's breakup. If social media accounts are any indication, this is likely the end of the road for this decade-long relationship.
