The Real Love Island Winners

The Real Love Island Winners

Love Island is a show of chirpsing, sizzling dates, occasionally being pied off, and, of course, newfound fame. With many contestants turning to Instagram to earn their fortune after the show, we reveal how much each Love Islander – past and present – could potentially earn from the life of an #influencer.

Love Island has caught the eyes of the nation and become our new addiction, with up to 5.9 million viewers tuning in each week to watch the romantic ups and downs of the show’s singletons as they search for their one true love.

Since its relaunch in 2015, the UK show has seen more than 180 contestants enter the sun-drenched Love Island villa, many of whom turn to the life of an Instagram influencer to continue their fame after the show.

Each winning Love Island couple takes home a whopping £50K, while the runners-up leave with nothing but a tan. But Instagram is a powerful platform for #sponsored content, and when followers equal profits, which Love Islanders are the real winners after their appearance on the show?

We have analysed the UK’s Love Island contestants and uncovered who has the highest earning potential for sponsored Instagram content after their stint on the show. We have also looked at the jobs each star had before they entered the villa – models, influencers, singers, and more – to see what career paths are likely to lead you to the sizzling shores of Love Island.

Take a look at our findings below.
