Fox Removes On Air Temptation Couple With Child

During a televised meeting between producer Chris Cowan and Temptation Island couple Taheed Watson and Ytossie Patterson, the two were told that they would not be able to continue dating the hired temptresses and tempters on the island and that they would be given a suite at a local hotel where they could try to patch up their relationship. Cowan told them: "We know you guys have a child together and I think that's a very dangerous scenario for this show," he said. "My responsibility as a producer and Fox's responsibility as a broadcast network was never to put a mother and father of a child into a situation where they'd be tempted into potentially fracturing that relationship. It would just kill me to think that the experience could potentially drive a child's parents apart."
