He paired up with Trina Njoroge, but the pair left before the finale as others felt they had the least romantic relationship. Shortly after the show ended, Andre welcomed another child.

Olivia Casaro was eyeing Andre’s debut
Andre Brunelli, a 28-year-old former soccer player from Miami, Florida, entered the villa as one of the last new arrivals. He had the opportunity to take anyone on a date and chose Olivia Kaiser because he preferred a more “mature” partner.

Together with Corey Gandy at the time, she talked to him about her date and admitted that she wanted to get to know him better. The two agreed to respect each other’s choices, as they also had a thing for Bailey Marshall at the time, and revealed that she wasn’t fully into Corey anymore.
At the next reunion, Corey chose Olivia before Andre had a chance, and the two stayed together until the US voted them their favorite couple. It is unclear what would have happened if Andre had chosen Olivia earlier.
He teamed up with Trina Njoroge, but they didn’t have a relationship
Instead, Andre chose Trina Njoroge, noting that he thought they had similar hearts. While she felt attracted to him and wanted to see how things turned out with him, she also thought that he immediately friend-zoned him.
However, the two forge a great friendship, which Andre considers the beginning of a romance. When their families called, Trina explained that she had learned she didn’t need a partner to make her happy.
She also called Andre “Prince Charming”, noting that he is setting the bar high for their next relationship. His mother and daughter also called and told him their happiness. Before closing, the remaining islanders had to dump a couple, which they deemed the least compatible with the island.
Despite their strong friendship, the other couples did not believe they had a deep enough romantic relationship and decided to send her home. They have since agreed to see other people since they moved out.
