There are two sides to every story. But, what if the two sides directly contradict each other?

In this exclusive clip from USA Network's Temptation Island reunion special, David Benavidez and Samantha Hoffman find themselves disagreeing over whether they kissed while filming season two. The disagreement comes about after fellow single Payton Burgess claims, "David hadn't kissed Samantha."

"Just to clarify, he did kiss me in the audio room," Hoffman tells her peers. "But, we got yelled at by production to get out of there."

As fans surely recall, in episode four, David infamously got naked and crawled into a bed with Samantha and Payton. This wouldn't be such a big deal if David hadn't come to the island with then girlfriend of three years, Kate Griffith.

In response to Samantha's claims, David accuses the 29-year-old flight attendant of being "bitter" over the fact he passed her over for another single, Toneata Morgan.

Amid hearing all of this, Kate demands that David tell her the truth.

"I never kissed Sam during filming," David assures Kate.

However, Sam doubles down on her comment and Payton cuts David off by shouting, "Lies! Lies! Lies! Lies!"

"I'm not gonna continue to address people saying things happen when there weren't cameras around," David notes to host Mark L. Walberg.

"I deserve the truth," Kate retorts. "This is what this has all been about, is us going home and me getting the truth. And, that's all I've asked for from the get-go."

While an emotional Kate urges David to "speak your truth," he reiterates that he "did not kiss Sam that night."
