Love Island Australia & Tinder Launch ‘Swipe Island’

Love Island Australia and Tinder have joined to launch ‘Swipe Island’ – an in app experience where departing contestants will join Tinder for another chance to find their lucky match.

Australian Tinder members will soon have the final chance to participate in the virtual ‘Swipe Island’ experience and match with ex Villa contestants. Three Love Island Australia contestants, Rachel, Emily, and Nicholas, will be joining Tinder’s ‘Swipe Island’ following their departure from the Love Island villa.

Rachael said: “I may have fallen a little short in the Love Island Australia department this year because I didn’t find my tall dorky sweetheart… But that’s OK, because your girl is getting back out there! I’m still looking for that spark, except this time on Tinder! I’m looking for someone who is into their movies – extra points if you can quote Harry Potter or Star Wars. Someone who’s got great banter, a great sense of humour and can keep a conversation going. If you feel like we’re compatible, jump onto Tinder and maybe we can match!”

Emily is also excited to be joining Tinder: “Even though I didn’t find someone special during my time in the Villa, it doesn’t mean that I’m ready to stop looking. I’ve dusted off my Tinder profile, I’m ready to make my next match and my profile is verified so everyone will know it’s the real me. I’ll be matching with people who have really creative Tinder bios that capture my attention and really showcase personality, profiles where you’re not hiding in between people in a group shot because I want to know who you are, and I’m always a fan of pet pics – I was obsessed with the Villa chickens.”

Nicolas said: “Unfortunately, I didn’t find love in the Villa, but that’s not going to stop my search for love. This Monday, Tinder is doing Swipe Island, where you might be able to match with me and some of the other Love Island Australia contestants. I’m going to be looking for profiles that make me laugh, so chuck some cheeky photos up and maybe some funny pick-up lines in the bio. I want someone who can make me smile or can make me smile. I’m a big family guy, so I just want someone I can bring home to my family and have an amazing time together. That’s a massive thing for me.”

Once on Swipe Island, Tinder members can match and chat with other fans of the show, the Dumped Islanders and also with ex-Islanders from Love Island Australia Seasons 1 and 2, including Millie Fuller and Teddy Briggs.
