“FBoy Island” is jam-packed with wild twists and turns, but none were as shocking as the moment contestant Garrett Morosky chose money over a relationship with Sarah Emig during the finale.

She lost $100,000 for trusting the LA bitcoin investor who proudly called himself the “King of the FBoys,” but Emig told Insider that she still has “no regrets.” 

“Any person with logic would not have chosen him,” Emig said. “I just laughed like, this is funny, this is what I deserve. But also a lot of women can relate to that too, where they give a guy a lot of chances and try to see the good in someone and it just ends up not working out.” 

Emig and her costars CJ Franco and Nakia Renee were tasked with dating 24 guys — half of whom self-identified as players, the other half as nice guys — on the new HBO Max reality show. At the end, host Nikki Glaser revealed that if the women chose to take home an “FBoy” instead of a nice guy, he would decide whether he wanted to split the $100,000 prize waiting for each couple at the end — or leave with all of the money instead.

While both Emig and Renee ultimately chose to give their FBoys a chance, it was only Morosky who decided to leave his woman with nothing. 

“When it happened, I just completely saw red like, what did I just do? I was so angry like, f–k you, how could you do that to a person?” Emig told Insider. “I ignored every red flag up until now.” 

Emig said the finale happened right after the couple’s 24-hour date, which is when she decided that she “could totally trust” Morosky.

“That’s when I felt like we got some alone time together without the cameras and I got to see the true him, and the true him didn’t feel like he was there just for the money,” she continued. “So he did prove that he was there for me — or so it seemed.” 

Emig, Franco, and Renee each told Insider that they didn’t realize how well Morosky had manipulated them until the show aired and they were able to see his confessionals.

“Watching it back, I can see why people are being like, ‘Wow, why is Sarah picking him over and over again?'” Emig said with a laugh. “All of America is probably yelling at the screen. But we did really have a lot of good moments, he actually cried at multiple eliminations.” 

“Oh my god, the tears,” Renee added. “That’s all part of the manipulation too, now that I look back. But he definitely had us fooled. It just proves how FBoys can manipulate women. I think if the confessionals weren’t there, you guys would have been just as fooled as we were.” 

But the FBoys don’t win in the end — at least on this show. After Morosky picked money over love, Glaser revealed that the entire $100,000 would go to a charity of Emig’s choosing instead — leaving him with absolutely nothing. 

It was one last twist that Emig said made the whole experience worth it.

“I was like, not only do I get what I deserve, but he gets what he deserves too, and he made a complete fool of himself,” she added. “He chose to make a bad decision. He just doesn’t deserve the time of day.”
