Afia Tonkmor On Love Island 2022
Like old times, the concept of Love Island 2022 is also that single men and women partake in staying on an island; with no contact from the outside world. During this span, they vie to find their perfect match; but keeping in mind that they might get eliminated if anyone remains single after re-coupling tasks. And lastly, the winning couple receives a grand prize of £50,000.
As for Afia, she decided to take on this journey as it just seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to her — to meet someone, have an amazing summer, just have so much fun, and have a bit of a summer romance as well.
Then, during the introduction, Afia reveals that she falls in love quickly, and warns the other islanders she is coming for their man. Usually, she said she is obsessed with the guy after two dates. It does not take too long before this person becomes her everything. So, Afia warned the other ladies that if she sees a guy that she wants in the villa she is going to make sure she gets him.
Other than that, Afia did not give any hints as to what her usual type is. She joined the eleven singletons as a newcomer alongside Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu on the 8 June 2022-episode. Two episodes in, things were already heating up on the show. ITV2 viewers had seen Davide Sanclimenti couple up with Gemma Owen, leaving Liam Llewelly single. And right at the time Afia and Ekin-Su were unveiled as the show’s new contestants.
