The Love Island Rich List: These are the Islanders making the most money
Where do I apply???
Once upon a time, people went on Love Island to find love, or at least have thoroughly mediocre under-the-cover sex for the enjoyment of the British publish. That is not longer the case.
Nowadays, Love Island contestants enter the show with the view of graduating to the promised land of sponsored content and brand deals. Most are hoping they’ll be able to sell books like Dani Dyer, or have a lovely stint on Dancing on Ice like Wes. They don’t want to be posing with fistfulls of car fresheners like Georgia, or selling porn like Alex Miller.
Only now do we know who are the most minted of all the Love Island alumni. See the Love Island richest stars below:
1. Alex and Olivia Bowen: £4.4m
The winners of series two, Alex and Olivia Bowen, have the largest combined net-worth out of all the other contestants. The magazine coverage of their wedding last September bagged them a reported £25,000 magazine deal.
Like all the Islanders, the couple also make a great deal out of sponsorships being social media influencers. The pair are expected to make £2,000 per post – which they do daily.
The couples own fashion label, Exempt Society, is also said to earn them at least £950k in the next two years.
They also get big pay packets for club appearances, modelling and TV presenting jobs.
2. Dani Dyer: £1.7m
Last year’s winner became the face of Mark Hill hair products which is said to give her a six-figure contract.
Dani also has her own range in In The Style said to be worth about £750k.
From each sponsored Instagram post she can earn up to £15k.
Dani and her ex-boyfriend Jack Fincham also earned money from their partnerships with Lucozade Zero and Cadbury’s. The pair are also expected to have earned a lot from their spinoff on ITVBe.
Further to this Dani has released a best-selling auto-biography and starred in Nativity: The Musical – a West End show Dyer played alongside her dad.
3. Amber Davies: £1.6m
Amber is believed to earn up to £10k per sponsored Instagram post.
Amber also has contracts with Boux Avenue and Motel Rocks.
She has had a leading role in the musical Dolly Parton’s musical 9 to 5. Like Dani and Jack, she has also had her own ITVBe special off the back of the musical.
4. Kem Cetinay: £1.5m
The series three winner (with Amber) has high-earning contracts with BoohooMAN, Sainsbury’s and Primark.
Kem has also done a number of presenting jobs for different television shows including being a showbiz corespondent for Good Morning Britain and This Morning.
Kem would have also profited from his two spin off shows Chris & Kem: Straight Outta Love Island, and You Vs Chris & Kem.
The pair also made a fitness video called Chris & Kem: 100% Fit.
On top of this Kem also earns up to £8,000 per sponsored Instagram post.
5. Chris Hughes £1.4m
Chris and Olivia’s breakup was documented on the ITV spin-off show Chris and Olivia: Crackin’ On, and gained a lot of money for the pair.
It is said that for every public appearance Chris does, can make up to £5k an hour. An hour!!!
Chris also works with brands such as Jaffa Cakes, McDonald’s and First Choice.
Chris similarly would have profited from all his shows with Kem.
Chris now is also a presenter for ITV’s horse racing coverage, also earning him quite a lot of money.
6. Kady McDermott £1.3m
Since leaving the villa with her now ex Scott Thomas, the couple appeared at club nights together supposedly charging £10k per appearance.
McDermott has also started her own fitness programme and beauty line, By Kady, to bring in extra cash.
Kady makes up to £2k per Instagram post and has recently joined TOWIE as Myle’s girlfriend
7. Gabby Allen: £1.3m
Gabby’s launched her own fitness app, which soon became no.1 in the Apple Store. Since then she has reportedly signed a £100k-a-year contract with another fitness app.
On top of this Gabby gains around £3k per sponsored Instagram post, has written her own book and released her own clothing line with Quiz.
Gabby also took part on Celebrity Big Brother last year gaining her even more money.
8. Olivia Attwood: £1.2m
Olivia, like Kady McDermott, makes up to £10k per hour per club appearance.
Further to making £2k from social media posts, Olivia has her own magazine column in OK! Magazine.
Since leaving the villa she has also appeared on other television shows like Celebs Go Dating.
Like Dani, Olivia also has her own In The Style Range, and is said to have invested in some pricey property.
9. Megan Barton-Hanson: £1.1m
Since leaving the villa Megan has turned down club appearances, and other big money offers such as sponsored Instagram posts.
However, Megan does have contracts with PrettyLittleThing and Avon, and is said to be releasing her own book soon.
Megan is also taking part in the next series of Celebs Go Dating where she will make even more money.
10. Jack Fincham: £1m
A lot of the money Jack has made since the end of series four has been from public appearances in clubs and his spin-off-show with Dani.
Jack has also made some endorsements with big companies such as McDonald’s and Protein World.
He is also appearing on the next season of Celebs Go Dating which will add to his net worth.
Maybe Love Island’s the way forward instead of a graduate-job …
