Despite Jacob’s dumbass nature, he developed a real bond with Jill. “There’s a whole other side of him where he’s so cute,” she told Parade. “He’s really smart. I know he comes off as this ‘himbo’ and such a dope, and he is, but he definitely has a lot of depth.”
In the same episode, Kira returned to paradise hoping to pursue something with Jacob. At the start of the season, Kira, Jill, and Romeo were involved in a love triangle, so Jill was not pleased to see her return and try to pursue Jacob. “F*** you, b****!” said Jill in front of the other participants. Jill later told Parade, “It was a super emotional situation. I was really frustrated. I learned a lot of things from that situation and I hope Kira did too.”
Although Jacob listened to Kira, he ultimately rejected her. “Jill really brought out a lot of great qualities in me,” he told Kira. “We’ve also had some deep conversations over the past 24 hours.” Jacob added that he had “something right” about Jill and left to comfort her. Surprisingly, Kira left paradise with Romeo instead.
