Love Island 2022: ‘That’s a pretty long list’: Gemma seems unimpressed with Davide’s requirements in a girl… before citing many of the same things back to him
The pair are now a couple after new arrival Davide chose Gemma in Tuesday’s episode, leaving Liam Llewellyn single.
Davide had a chat with some of the girls before making his decision, with Gemma wanting to know what he looks for in a partner.
Picky: Gemma Owen appeared less than impressed with Davide Sanclimenti when he gave her his list of qualities in a girl… before repeating a very similar list back to him
Having a late-night conversation in the garden, Gemma said: ‘What would you normally go for in a girl?’
Not shy about his preferences, Davide replied: ‘I would say attraction is important but then I need to see something else.
‘I need to see she’s ambitious, she’s family-orientated, she’s caring about her man.’
Gemma replied: ‘That’s a pretty long list…yeah.’
Davide said: ‘I need to see she’s ambitious, she’s family-orientated, she’s caring about her man’
Gemma replied: ‘That’s a pretty long list… yeah’
The following day, Gemma and Davide had another chat where he asked her about the qualities she’s looking for, which were quite similar to his.
She said: ‘Looks wise, tall, muscley, dark features, nice teeth. Family orientated, good morals. Just a really decent person.’
‘Probably like me,’ he replied.
The opening scenes saw Gemma made her intentions clear with Davide as she told him that she didn’t like to be second best.
As the Italian hunk pulled her for a chat, the daughter of Michael Owen asked him if he had good morals, to which he remained coy.
Reprimanding him, she uttered: ‘Nah you don’t do you, you’re a little s**t!’

After being questioned why she said this about him, Gemma said: ‘Because you couldn’t give me a straight answer. Do you mess people around?’
To which Davide responded: ‘No’.
On his impending decision, Gemma then added: ‘I feel like the power has proper got to your head.’
As Davide implied he like the power during their flirty chat, Gemma then added: ‘Oh my God, I might remove myself from this situation so you’ve got to pick someone else!
‘I don’t like competition, I want to be first, not second!’
Confident: ‘Probably like me,’ Davide replied after Gemma listed what she’s looking for
The bombshell contestant held the power after it was revealed 24 hours previously that he had to chose one of the girls to pair up with, despite the girls already being in couples with the others lads.
After spending the day getting to know the girls, the evening saw decision time for business owner Davide as he had to chose which girl to steal from one of the other boys.
Speaking in front of the firepit, he explained that his decision had not been an easy one as he had just 24 hours to get to know the other girls.
He then added: ‘It’s not just attraction, yes she’s a stunning girl. We really had a good time and I would like to know her more. The girl I would like to couple up with is… Gemma.’
She scores! Tuesday night’s Love Island ended with plenty of drama as Davide opted to couple up with Gemma in the first recoupling of the series
As Michael Owen’s daughter made her way over to her new partner, Liam looked visibly gutted as he could only sit by and watch.
But his misery continued as he then received a text which confirmed his single status and revealed that anyone not in a couple by the end of the week is at risk of being dumped from the villa.
With Liam on his lonesome, he may well be consoled by the fact that two new bombshells are set to enter the very soon.
Afia Tonkmor, 25, hails from London and is a Lounge Host at a Private Members Club.

Detailing her search for love, Ekin-Su said: ‘I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings.’
On why she’s still a single lady, she added: ‘Partially because I’m quite picky and I’m not just looking for looks, I’m looking for brains! I’m looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats. Nothing like cockiness! I’m looking for a serious man and a serious relationship.’
