Which Love Islander has gained the fewest Instagram followers since going on? An investigation
As if you humiliate yourself on TV and still get shit numbers
It seems like one of the certainties of Love Island is that even if the contestants fail to find love, they'll still succeed on growing their social media presence and maybe get a few sponsored posts by Boohoo to go with it. Winner Kem from last season now has 2.1 million followers – all desperate to hear of his jet-setting, ice-skating lifestyle.
For most stars of this series that maxim has held true – Eyal got 92,000 more followers after just the first episode and now has 657,000 – which is a pretty good showing for someone who talks like he's narrating a children's bedtime story.
Most of the high-flyers still left on the show have pretty solid numbers, Dani Dyer with the most at 1.2 million Instagram followers. And she's not the only one to have done well out of it: Jack has 917,000, Georgia 818,000 and Dr Alex has 689,000 followers.
However, for an unlucky few their insta following started small and stayed small. But who has the most pathetically embarrassing insta numbers? Let's find out who the five islanders with the lowest number of followers are:
Kazimir Crossley – 85,800 followers
Considering she hasn't been on the show long and has been portrayed as something of a villain for stealing Georgia's bloke, this isn't really a bad showing at all.
All of Kaz's followers would fit into Wembley stadium with only 4,200 seats left spare. Maybe her social media success is because of photos like this.
Jack Fowler – 36,000 followers
Respectable but not mind-blowing numbers by Laura's Jack, here – almost exactly the same as the capacity of Middlesborough FC's Riverside Stadium, where the semi-pro footballer will almost certainly never play.
If his income was the same as his Instagram following he would receive a take-home pay of £27,045 – which is enough to buy a studio in Islington at an auction.

Frankie Foster – 32,900 followers
If Frankie got a pound for each follower he'd have enough to buy 40,000 pills of Clomiphene – the banned substance Frankie tested positive for which led to him being barred from professional rugby.
Maybe if he wants to up his numbers he should tell whoever runs his account to put some more flattering photos up of him and Samira?
Charlie Brake – 32,400 followers
Ellie and Charlie's relationship is inarguably the single most boring element of the show.
Ellie clearly just enduring Charlie's room temperature chat for the future prospect of being treated to endless expensive holidays when they get out. Maybe this is why Charlie has the least following of any of the new boys still left in the villa.
If he had a pound for every follower he'd have just more than the average yearly wage of a plumber – which Charlie famously has as a qualification on his LinkedIn profile (alongside "Gap Year" as relevant job experience??)
Grace Wardle – 6,557 followers (!!!!!!!!!)
For a show watched by a peak of 3.4 million viewers, 6,557 followers is just a little bit sad. This is only 33 more than the capacity of League Two football side Macclesfield Town's tiny stadium, The Moss Rose.
Play the Proclaimer's song "I'm Gonna Be" and they've walked more miles than Grace has followers by the seventh chorus. This is only 1,557 more than the amount of people Jesus fed with just five fishes and some loaves of bread. This is not enough money to buy a second hand Skoda Octavia.
This is the Love Islander with the most embarrassingly small number of Instagram followers.
Well tonight was by far the hardest. It is so heartbreaking seeing our beautiful girl with tears in her eyes, we wish we could be there to give her the biggest cuddle. But we are so thankful @adlgeorge1 was there with his arm around her. No matter what’s going on, these two are special. We are so happy she is still in the villa. Chase that love baby girl ❤️🌴 #loveisland2018 #teamwardle #staystrong 😘
