LOVE Island star Ikenna Ekwonna revealed he is earning less than he did before appearing on the dating show.
Canal 4 released a new documentary series called Life After Love Island, that exposed what really happens on the hit ITV reality series.
The 23-year-old pharmaceutical sales rep – who was dumped from the villa after 15 dias – said he is now making less than half the amount of money after quitting his job to go on the show.
Ikenna’s post-show experience hasn’t been all it’s cracked up to be.
The documentary revealed that he made £3000 to £4000 making content and advertising in the first three months leaving the villa, which works out “less than half than what he was earning” at his previous job.
“You come out thinking, 'Oh, it’s Love Island. Everyone after Love Island is set,’” he told presenter Will Njobvu. “And coming out of it, you’re like, ‘Where is it?’”
When asked if he had been approached by any brands, Ikenna replied “não”.
Ele adicionou: “I have questioned is it me?…. Is it my face? Is it my skin?”
Elsewhere in the documentary, Casa Amor bombshell Coco Lodge said she hoped to leave the show with around one or two million followers.
Contudo, a disappointed Coco said: “But I came out with 30k followers, I just didn’t really understand, because I was like, ‘why does everyone hate me?’”
“You don’t go in there to find love. It’s a bonus if you do, but you go in there because you know what you can get after.”
Infelizmente, Coco did not find love in the villa after being coupled up with Andrew Le Page, 27, and was given the boot last week with Josh Le Grove, 22.
