The wages of the Love Island 2021 cast pre the show prove some really don’t need the £50k
Through her work as an influencer, Kaz is the villa’s highest earner
Besides love, and the prospect of millions of followers and six figure brand deals, one of the main reasons you might want to apply for Love Island is the £50k prize fund at the end. But, if the wages of the Love Island 2021 cast are anything to go by, some of them really don’t need this as an incentive.
The jobs of the cast this year have been varied – from influencers and working in the fashion industry, to students and waitresses and even a water engineer. Research by the pricing specialist team at one of Europe’s leading price comparison sites idealo.co.uk, has calculated just how much the Love Island 2021 cast were making in wages before the show through their jobs – so here’s how much they were all putting away.
Kaz Kamwi – £57,200
Before entering the Love Island villa, Kaz was working as a fashion blogger. It’s thought she could have been earning around £1,000 per sponsored post on her Instagram page, making her overall the highest earner this year.
Teddy Soares – £42,000
Teddy’s job is as a senior financial consultant, with a salary of around £42,000. Right now, he works at a finance firm in Manchester, where he’s worked for over four years. According to his LinkedIn, he’s previously worked in business and financial jobs since 2014.
Jake Cornish – £38,000
People were a little confused over Jake’s job when he entered the villa – he said he’s a water engineer which people assumed was a glorified plumber. His day to day work makes him responsible for the supply, management and maintenance of clean water and sewerage/waste water services and preventing flood damage – and earns him an annual salary of £38,000.
Chloe Burrows – £36,700
Chloe’s job is as a financial services marketing executive, working in The City. At just 25, Chloe is making a pretty impressive wage.
Tyler Cruickshank – £29,000
Similarly to his fellow Islander Faye, Tyler works in property. However, as an estate agent in Croydon, Tyler is bringing back a few more bucks. When asked who out of him and Faye would win trying to sell the Love Island villa, Tyler said: “Oh I don’t know… I would say me, you’ve got to back yourself. She looks like she’d have a really good pitch on her.”
Millie Court – £26,000
Millie is a fashion grad, and everyone’s favourite style queen in the villa. Her job is as a fashion buyer’s administrator for ASOS, where she’s worked for three years. Before that she did sales at Superdry. Speaking about her work with ITV, Millie said: “I love my job. It’s all involved with fashion.” Right now, she’s expected to be earning £26,000.
Faye Winter – £25,000
Faye’s job is as a lettings manager in Devon. On top of her annual wage, Faye may earn some commission on the homes she sells.
Liam Reardon – £22,800
Welsh born Liam was working a bricklayer before Love Island. His expected salary is around £22,800. As well as this, Liam also does seasons in Ibiza and was a host of a beach club there. The bricklayer life isn’t forever for Liam though. “I’m too tall to be a bricklayer, so I’d like to down tools and do a bit of property development,” he said. “When I’m 30, living somewhere not in the UK. Part of me wants to be wealthy and successful, part of me wants to be living by the beach, run a bar, something on a smaller scale and be happy.”
Liberty Poole – £18,000
Before the villa, Liberty was juggling being a student and also a waitress at Nando’s. She’s expected to pick up £331 per week if doing full time hours, plus tips.
Toby Aromolaran – £18,000
Toby is a semi-professional footballer and plays for Essex team Hashtag United. Talking of his job, he said: “I’ve played football since I was about six, but it’s really come into a new light for the past year since I joined a team called Hashtag United. Playing with them has really made me fall in love with the game again.” If he makes it big from football and Love Island 2021, I think Toby can expect some pretty high wages in the future.
