This is how much money Ovie makes outside the Love Island villa

Wow, he’s definitely in it for love not money

Since entering the Love Island villa, Ovie Soko has won our hearts. He's a meme king, ridiculously good looking and genuine good value in the villa. But he's not just winning over the nation, he's winning at life. His net worth is CRAZY.

In the headlines challenge on Love Island last night, an article was shown that suggested India Reynolds, who Ovie is coupled up with, is only with him "for the money".

The headline was obviously referring to the 50k prize money at the end of the show, but sweet prince Ovie began to have second thoughts as he said girls in the past were only interested in him for his money. This got everyone thinking the same thing – how much does 6ft 7 basketball player Ovie Soko earn?? What is the salary of a world famous sports player??

He said: "Cos I’m an athlete women have come after me for my money. To have money bruv, it’s lonely as fuck."

He then told Amber: "Today’s challenge threw me out. It triggered something for me, it's a lot deeper than people would realise.

"As a basketball player, 90 per cent of the things I wouldn’t change about my job for the world. But the only thing I would change is just the fact that people use you a lot.

"They’ll use you then they’ll throw you away."
