“Out of the blue, this woman appeared with a knife and threatened them,” the insider revealed.

They added to The Sun: “Liberty and Kaz were obviously shocked and terrified, especially because guns are legal in the United States.”

“But luckily for them two men walking past came to their aid and called the police.

“The girls were shaken by the incident and are just surprised it happened to them.”

The pair were reportedly ‘grateful’ that the pair rushed to help but are now ‘determined to put the chilling incident behind them for the rest of their unique journey’.

Meanwhile, Kaz had a whirlwind and turbulent romance with Tyler Cruickshank, who stalked her after coming in like a bombshell. After a tough time after Casa Amor, Kaz and Tyler decided to stay coupled and they made it through the final.

They finished in fourth place and became an official couple away from the villa, but separated soon after. contacted representatives for Liberty who declined to comment and also contacted Kaz’s representative.
