Love Island welcomes new male contestant Mike Thalassitis to the villa tonight
A new male contestant is entering the Love Island villa tonight, and he’s sure to stir things up.
24-year-old semi-pro footballer Mike Thalassistis will throw everything off balance when he arrives on the island in tonight’s episode (Thursday, June 15). The self-proclaimed “tall, dark and handsome” Londoner confesses to being somewhat of a player, and he certainly isn’t afraid to step on some toes to win the competition.
“I’m not romantic very often because I would never be that guy to spend money on a girl, show her romance and start falling for her, and then you find out a month later she’s been with lots of other guys. I’m very particular,” he said.
“I’m very all or nothing. I won’t splash cash on girls I don’t really know.”
He continued: “I have no loyalties. I’m not going in there to try to throw my weight around. They’ve only known each other for a week, so it’s not like they are in proper relationships yet.”
When asked which of the girls he already has an interest in, Mike teased: “Looks-wise, I’d say Jessica, Olivia and Amber. But personality is really important – I couldn’t be with Jessica if we were having boring conversation. I want to have a laugh and enjoy the girl’s company.”
And when it comes to his biggest turn-offs, Mike revealed: “[My nightmare would be] someone that has to always be the centre of attention for the wrong reasons – someone who causes arguments and negative vibes. A girl who thinks she is always right.”
Love Island continues tonight (Thursday, June 15) at 9pm on ITV2.
