the island of love fans know what’s going to happen when they hear “This week, a new hot bomb is entering the villa…” but what about everything that happens when the Islanders are offscreen?
According love island usa alum Alexandra Stuart, not a lot. The Season 1 star opened up about life at the villa in a TikTok shared on August 1, answering what she considered to be the most frequently asked questions about being an islander.
First, the phones. Every islander has one, but they’re not really useful for anything beyond receiving messages from production (most of which result in someone yelling “I’ve got a text!”) . “All phones have different dates and times,” Alexandra explained. “No one knows unless they have a sundial and know how to read it.”
At least the islanders have some wine to sip to pass the time, right? Not necessarily. “Wine comes out of a magic cabinet”, after the island said the podcast host, explaining that they can only indulge when production says they can. “One drink, maybe two, if you’re lucky.”
