STILL COM­ING TO TERMS WITH tak­ing out the in­au­gu­ral sea­son of Love Is­land Aus­tralia, win­ning cou­ple Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir were al­most lost for words when they spoke to WHO on July 5. “We were so shocked,” says Tayla. “Even when [show host] So­phie [Monk] an­nounced it, I thought she might have stuffed up. I thought, “What? This isn’t sup­posed to hap­pen.”

Her new boyfriend, Grant—he popped the re­la­tion­ship ques­tion on the show with a com­mit­ment ring—agrees. “Me and Tayla didn’t speak about win­ning once,” says the elec­tri­cian from Can­berra. “We weren’t even sure if we were go­ing to make the Top 3.”

Hav­ing won the ti­tle of Aus­tralia’s favourite cou­ple and the $50,000 cheque that goes with it, the pair are get­ting ready for phase two of their re­la­tion­ship. “We’re go­ing to head to Syd­ney, where we are go­ing to start our next chap­ter,” says ra­dio an­nouncer Tayla, orig­i­nally from Perth. “That’s where we will be liv­ing and find­ing a new place.”

As for why she thinks it’s not too soon to make the move: “He al­ways has my back and he showed that in the villa,” says Tayla. “I could make him the worst cof­fee in the world and he would still make it seem like I’d done the most amaz­ing thing.” “Every­day with Tayla is just a fairy­tale,” con­curs Grant. “I fall more and more in love with her.” But is mar­riage the next step? “We’re 21 and 22!” says Tayla. “We’re very young still. But you never know, there may be a Mrs Crapp one day.” •

“Watch­ing back our high­lights reel, I was like, ‘Oh My God, we’re dis­gust­ing!’ ”says Tayla (with Grant at the fi­nale). “We kiss 24/7! What’s wrong with us?”

“Once I signed up for the show, we ended up fin­ish­ing things,” says Grant, here in a photo from his In­sta­gram, said to be of Lucy Cartwright.
