This week 10 genetically blessed guys and girls are being flown from their homes in Australia to be dropped into a picturesque villa in Majorca, Spain in the hopes of finding love. Love Island Australia, which kicks off this Sunday, May 25 at 8:30pm on 9GO, will feature some strong personalities and we’re already betting that Melbourne nurse Erin will cause some trouble.
The 22-year-old sat down with WHO before jetting out of the country and she revealed that she is already prepared to fight for what she wants, especially if another Islander tries to steal her man. “We can have an argument about it,” she tells WHO. “We could probably rock-paper-scissors it. And that’s probably my only two options but it’ll have to be best out of three and then if she wins, we have to keep doing it because she can’t win. So we’ll just have to go with plan A and argue.”
When it comes to reality dating shows, the social media reaction to the contestants can be brutal but Erin isn’t worried. “I don’t care,” she says. “My sense of humour is quite insulting, as in I’ll insult someone and then they insult me back and we go and forth. I have no limit and sometimes it’s really bad because I push someone else’s limit and then I’m like f**k well you’re boring now. So if someone insults me I don’t care. So social media and stuff and someone bags you out, I really don't care. I take insults really well.”
Despite her bravado, Erin is hoping to find love in Love Island. “I’m hoping that because I’m trapped in an amazing villa with people, [then] I have to get to know guys longer,” she says. “Because normally I do a one date thing or a second date but I would not go on a third date because then that means that I’m just going to start to like you, so I bail.”
Does Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why deserve all the hype and controversy? Is Riverdaletoo dark?
