It’s been called “sex on steroids” and now Nine has unveiled the cast for its upcoming series of Love Island set to launch on 9GO! and 9Now on Sunday the 27th.
The 20-somethings cast will meet for the each other for the first time in their own luxury villa in Mallorca, Spain.
Screening Sunday to Thursday, each episode of the show will air within 24 hours of being filmed.
The cast includes a professional dog groomer, a bartender, a couple of models, a prison officer and an electrician.
One contestant, 22-year-old Erin from Perth, told News Corp media over the weekend: “I love sex, who doesn’t? I will have sex anywhere if I am horny enough. But I will try not to because it is on TV and I don’t want to be a porn star.”
While 22-year-old professional rugby player Charlie added: “I don’t like girls with body hair, that is a turn off for me. And also bad breath, bad teeth, body odour, all that stuff. Hygiene is the number one thing for me.”
While 25-year-old prison officer Eden revealed: “I did topless waiting and hooked up with a few girls there. The bride to be on one boat, I did sleep with her. She said she wanted one last hurrah and I gave it to her.”
