The latest Love Island contestant is Melbourne-based influencer, Emily Ward. Impressively, Emily already has 40,000 Instagram followers and 265,000 on Tik Tok. She was also a Miss Universe finalist in 2021.
A friend of Emily’s confirmed her entry into the villa to So Dramatic! and said they have it on good authority she enters tonight!
“She’s been featured in the promo for next week, however, I don’t think people have caught onto who she is,” they told So Dramatic!. “The promo is playing her out to be a fresh graduate so I’m not sure what’s going to happen. Looks like she might be portrayed as the smart one.”
According to her friend, Emily is on the show for ~genuine reasons~ but the exposure wouldn’t go astray either! Look, we get it! And double points for honesty!
“She is obviously going on the show for the exposure but also hoping to bring a boy home too,” they dished.
Who is Love Island Intruder Emily Ward?
Speaking of home, Emily might feel like she’s right there, given that her friend Rachael Evren is already in the villa!
“Rachael and Emily know each other,” the friend explained to So Dramatic! “They both competed in the Miss Universe Australia world and they follow each other on everything.”
However, Rachael is not the only reality star and fellow Islander that Emily knows. She is also followed by Bachelorette star Ciarran Stott and Love Island’s Teddy Briggs and Sam Withers.
Hopefully, they gave her some tips on the best camera angles before entering the villa!
