Here's How Much Each Love Island Contestant Makes From A Sponsored Instagram Post

Remember: these figures are PER POST.

Maybe we will apply after all. 

If we've learned anything from the past five seasons of Love Island, it's that the show doesn't guarantee you love but it does guarantee fame and fortune. While they may only earn about £250 a week in the Villa, Islanders who enjoy a significant stint on the show tend to make ten times that in the following months and up to a year after the show, with some of the more successful contestants lapping up earnings far beyond that. And that's not to mention the grand prize of £50,000. 

Following last year's hugely successful series, each and every islander that made it through to the final came out of the villa with over 1 million Instagram followers. Unsurprisingly, the brand deals and press opportunities quickly followed.

Now, with Winter Love Island just around the corner, new research from OddsMonkey has revealed the twenty highest-earning Islanders. The brand trawled back over every series, seeing who the most popular, most successful and who – if any – are still together. Then using the latest Instagram marketing fee, ranked the Islanders from the past five years to see who was earning the most.
