‘Animal’ Jack Fowler will win £100k Love Island Games

The finale of Love Island: Games airs this Monday & ex-Islander Adam believes he knows who will take home the $100k prize.

Adam Collard: “We weren’t really that bothered about the games in terms of winning when we were doing standard Love Island. We were just there, having a laugh. For example, if you lost but you did something funny, you weren’t bothered. So it’s a different sort of dynamic when it’s the Love Island: Games. 

To win? Jack Fowler is an animal, so he will do well.”

Chance of finding love on Love Island are diminishing

Three months on… and just one of the three couples to leave 2023 Love Island are still together, S4&8 Islander Adam Collard gives his take on why modern Love Islanders are finding it harder to find Love;

Adam Collard: “I think the odds have shifted. When it was season four, I would say that there was a 50/50 chance that the relationship would last. 

I think as the years go on and the nature of the beast that is social media and external influences come into play, the chances are dropping.

The chances are now probably quite low unless they’re perfect for each other. There’s a hundred thousand, 13, 14-year-old girls with fan pages about it – that’s pressure. Everyone’s just watching your next move and it’s not even that they’re rooting for you. So there’s a lot to contend with while you’re trying to make a meaningful connection with this other person.”

ITV slammed for leaving Love Island contestants ‘without a career’ 

Love Island banned contestants & family members from using social media accounts during this season of the show in a move ITV said is to protect contestants, however, Adam Collard criticised the move from ITV;

Adam Collard: I actually think it was a wrong move. I think that, yes, you get a little bit of negative press, but you’re going to get it anyway. And even if you do, there is no way by banning social media that my parents, my sister or whoever are not going to Google or search on Twitter regardless.

And the second thing is you take Zara for example – she was in parliament, and then you’ve got Paige, who is a paramedic. As a result, they can no longer work in those fields. So the benefit of them going on Love Island is social media and finding a career that way.

If someone is willing to risk that, and ITV bans social media, the contestants are never going to be able to take advantage of its benefits. For me, I think that was a terrible move – I think there’ll be a lot of people who are stuck without careers now, because they’ve risked it for the show and they’ll also not be able to work that way either because they’ll have no followers.”

Love Island helped me achieve my dreams in one year instead of five

For some contestants, Love Island can be the launching pad for a whole new career, we caught up with ex-Islander Adam Collard to reflect on how the reality show changed his life;

Adam Collard: “I can’t thank that team enough for the opportunities, and the rooms that it’s put me in.

I’ve ended up working with brands that I love –  Puma, Reebok, Boohoo, for example. I would say, what you can achieve in five years, you can achieve in one – with the help of Love Island.

I’ve met some really cool people in the process. There’ve been people who I really never thought I would like in the public eye, and then I’ve actually ended up really liking them. 

I’ll never, ever judge people the same who are in the public eye because I’ve definitely been that person in the past.”
