Fans of Love Island USA were astonished when bombshell Mike Stark dressed down Sarah Hyland.
Viewers said that her equivalent in the United Kingdom, Maya Jama, 29, would not have permitted such ‘disrespect.’
On Friday’s edition of the dating reality programme, Keenan Anunay was booted from the Fiji villa after garnering the fewest votes.
In an unexpected turn of events, his partner Kay Kay Grey, 25, decided to evict herself and accompany the 23-year-old student on the journey home.
‘I would also voluntarily like to leave,’ the travel nurse announced to the Modern Family actress, 32.
‘I feel like I found what I came here for and I would like to leave with Keenan.’
Double-checking Kay Kay didn’t want to change her mind, Sarah asked: ‘Before you go anywhere, I just want to make sure that you are absolutely happy with your decision?’
‘No regrets,’ Kay Kay replied.
But then bombshell Mike Stark jumped in and criticised Sarah: ‘Why are you saying it like that?’
‘Me?’ Sarah responded, sounding baffled.
Mike clarified: ‘Yeah that sounded mad disrespectful.’
Visibly shocked, Sarah asked: ‘I’m being disrespectful?’
Mike replied simply: ‘Yeah.’
Taken aback, Sarah brushed off his comments with an ‘okay then’ before moving the programme along.
Viewers were left reeling by Mike’s outburst with one commenting: ‘Wow so you lot disrespect the host like that, imagine someone doing that to @MayaJama in the UK, it would legit be curtains for that individual SO RUDE.’
‘It’s her Job. He’s on a reality show. That’s what she need to do to get answers and some drama. Maya Jama on the UK version does even more than this but does not get disrespected. This is embarrassing,’ another added.
It comes only three weeks after the UK’s former islander Scott van-der-Sluis was booted from the original residence.
‘I was in Love Island UK. I didn’t find love so I thought why not take it international,’ he explained in his introductory clip.
Love Island USA, a spin-off of the original UK season, debuted in 2019 and is presently on its fifth season.
Love Island USA is available to watch on ITVX.
