Two New Fellas Are Heading Into ‘Love Island’ Tonight & Here’s Everything We Know

We’re only three eps into Love Island Australia and already the series is keen to throw in some fresh meat, with two new boys John James and Elias entering tonight.

We can expect that one of the dudes could be a potential match for lone wolf Tayla, who is currently sailing solo.

After last night’s ep, Grant finally chose to stay with Cassidy over Tayla… well for the moment at least. This has left Tayla matchless and vulnerable, so it’s the perf time to send in some new blood.

Here’s everything we know about the two new fellas:

John James

The 30-year-old DJ is the oldest Love Island cast member. But he also is the most experienced in the reality world, as he has previously starred in UK Big Brother in 2010.

While he’s a new face to us, he’s already a bit of a celeb in the UK, as he formed half of a beloved TV couple with fellow contestant Josie Gibson.

The couple then had their own spin-off show There’s Something About Josie, which didn’t last long as John James was later accused of cheating.

Is this a behavioural pattern for Johno? We’ll soon see, I guess.


Taking on Justin’s title as the most ridiculously good looking, Elias is also a successful male model. While he looks slightly like Jesus, a quick scan of his Instagram reveals he’s a bit of a surfer bro.

I wouldn’t call the guy a romantic. Ahead of his Love Island debut, he had this to say about the chances he’ll find love on the island:

“I think people that look for love generally fail. You’re setting yourself up to fail because you’re forcing something,” he told NW.

The guy also isn’t keen on women that get plastic surgery and cosmetic injections.

“I don’t like fake asses, fake faces, lip filler… [Girls] don’t need plastic surgery – they need a psychologist!” he told NW.

What a charmer, huh.
