It is finally here, the summer of love! Here in the UK, we’ve been treated to almost two weeks of Love Island drama already but don’t you worry because the hit show is dropping on Hulu next week! There are challenges, gossip, and celebrity relations, and this season is shaping up to be the most iconic yet. No, really, we promise! Let us introduce you to some of our favorite islanders in the villa to get you excited for season eight!
We hope you’re all ready for Dami! (See what we did there!) The Irish king of cool in the villa has made his mark already, and we are loving his vibes. Not only is the 26-year-old a looker, but he’s also a bit of a brainiac! Dami is a microbiologist from Dublin, and he’s laying the Irish charm on the ladies in the villa. Cool, calm, and collected, we think Dami is going to bring a lot of fun to the Majorcan villa and hopefully find love while he’s at it!
Also, on the starting lineup, we have the lovely Tasha Ghouri. Tasha is a model and dancer by profession. She’s fun, sassy, and a great addition to the show. Although it definitely doesn’t define her, we want to shout out to Tasha as she is the first deaf contestant ever to enter the villa! We love seeing more diversity and representation on our screens. Go on, Tasha! Find your soulmate!
Ah, Davide. He caused a stir from day one, and the 26-year-old business owner has titled himself the ‘Italian Stallion.’ Davide sent heads spinning when he entered the villa, and he hasn’t slowed down since. With a witty sense of humor and having grown up in the city of love, we don’t think he’ll have too much trouble finding romance this summer!
Ekin Su Cülcüloğlu
The action doesn’t stop on day one! Day two saw the first female bombshells walk in, and they certainly made an entrance. To use a Love Island favorite phrase, Ekin Su is moving mad, and we love to see it. Where this beautiful lady goes, chaos follows, and it has made for some top-tier reality tv. We hope she stays on our screens all summer long because she is bringing the drama on her quest for love.
Honorable mentions go out to Luca Bish (the man who sells fish, yes, really), Gemma Owen, who you may recognize as the daughter of England football legend Michael Owen, and Indiyah Polack, a 23-year-old waitress from London who is bringing the good vibes and the big city charm. We can’t wait for you all to see this series because so far, it’s a 10/10.
Good thing you don’t have to wait long! We got a text! Love Island Season 8 will be streaming on Hulu every Tuesday to Saturday from the 21st of June, mark it in your calendars! You can also catch Extra Bits and Aftersun, the Love Island aftershow, every Saturday, so you’ll never be short of the Love Island tea. And if you want, even more, you can catch up on all previous series on Hulu, right now!
Who are you most excited to see, and would you ever want to be in the villa? Let us know in the comments or drop us a tweet @TheHoneyPop! We’re also hanging out on Facebook and Instagram so hit us up there. We’ll be waiting for your text!
