Love Island always has some secret contestants who later join the villa, just to shake things up. And this time around, we have Jay Younger making his appearance on the June 13, 2022 ep of the show — right after the departure of two young islanders, Liam Llewellyn and Afia Tonkmor.
So, who is he? Get to know him better as this Bio proceeds.
Jay Younger On Love Island 2022
Jay Younger was one of the two early contestants (the other being Remi Lambert) who joined Love Island 2022 on its June 13 ep and shook a lot of bushes. But then again, this charming man was put in the latter episodes for a reason. His competitive attitude, daringness, and indecisiveness were everything that added spices to the mix.
Furthermore, he was also a “slow burner” and claimed he didn’t “fall easily”.
But this doesn’t mean, Jay was no fun. Before entering the villa he mentioned the would be “a supportive islander” who will “bring a lot of fun” and “some good laughs.”
Also, on June 13, he took it to his IG to share a teaser from his time on Love Island, captioned, “Let the Younger games begin.”
Joining him in the luxury Majorcan villa for Love Island 2022 were his co-contestants — Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Paige Thorne, Afia Tonkmor, Amber Beckford, Luca Bish, Andrew La Page, Gemma Owen, Davide Sanclimenti, Tasha Ghouri, Dami Hope, Indiyah Polack, Liam Llewellyn, and Ikenna Ekwonna.
Also, Missy Keating, Kat Harrison, Brad McDermott, Sophie Draper, Jordan Spencer, and Joshua Legrove were rumored to join the show in the latter half.
If case you missed the earlier episodes, this season’s contestant pairing process was a little different. As the girls arrived at the villa, they were asked to line up in front of the pool and paired with the boy that the audience chose for them. Yes! This was the first time ever the public played cupid.
