Former Love Island winner Greg O’Shea hits back at contestants of the notion ‘they don’t have brain cells’

Former Love Island winner Greg O’Shea has said that he still watches the show and has challenged the notion that contestants have “no brain cells.”

nd while his Instagram followers have nearly halved – from 1.7 million after winning the show’s fifth season after a record 15 days at the Spanish Villa – he has no doubt what the win has done for his career.

Three years after winning with Geordi Beauty, 27-year-old Limerick man Amber Gill is still reaping awards in a range of projects from fitness and TV presenter to social media marketing.

Greg, who played for Ireland’s national rugby seven teams until last year, said: “Love Island has given me opportunities that I never get to.”

“The only reason I get all these opportunities, let’s call a spade a spade, is because I was on the TV show.

“People really only know me because I’m so-called following him, and I use that for something I care about.
“I have launched a fitness platform behind him.

“I have a lot of prep gigs on Virgin Media, I have social media brand deals and I do a lot of things on Instagram and stuff like that, which would never have happened without Loved Is-Land,” Greg Said who is a Rugby Olympian and Law graduate.

He said he is the number one fan of the ITV dating reality show “and watches it like everyone else” but acknowledged that “a lot of people have a bad idea of ​​Love Island.”

He continued: “They think it’s stupid people walking around in bikinis and swimming togs and they have no brain cells between their ears.”

He is quick to argue that point and, in addition to his own academic studies to become an advocate, he points to Dr Alex George from season four of the reality show, who serves as the UK Mental Health Ambassador at the Department of Education. does.

Greg also takes the name of Ireland’s Yevande Biala, who was also in season five of the show and who is a scientist with a first-class honors degree and a master’s in pharmaceuticals.

Does Greg see himself going to the courts and working as a lawyer after completing and completing his law exams?

“No, this is not the way for me. This is my back-up plan,” Greg said.

He says people in Ireland go to school and college, get degrees and start working 9-5.

I was doing that and even after Love Island, I came home and took my law exam which was very difficult because I was not inspired by them.

I didn’t want to do this. Then, if Instagram crashes tomorrow, and all the media gigs stop coming, what am I going to do?

I’ll go back to my degree and be a lawyer.

When it comes to posting TV show work opportunities, Greg says, it may sound strange, but he recommends staying “true to yourself and what you care about.”

“I was very lucky and won the show that followed me in a big way, but I wanted to go to the Olympics, I wanted to go home, live in Ireland, take my law exam so that’s what I knew. But stuck.

“Another great thing that I’m really happy about is that I still have the same friends I had before the show.”

Greg’s social media followers grew to 1.7m from his first 2,000 followers on Love Island after he won and now has 944,000 followers.

“It has been a lot of ups and downs. Obviously I won the show, I had 15 minutes of fame and then I decided not to be with the girl I won the show with. ,

Greg says that himself and Amber still follow each other on social media.

“We respect each other from afar but we are in completely different worlds.

“We contacted each other twice. We only knew each other for two weeks. We had the strangest experience together that no one can understand except the other winners.”

As for the buffed body he’s been posting shots of throughout lockdown, Greg confirms he’s never had to resort to the fake tan some might expect to be part and parcel of the reality dating show.

“I’m very lucky, my mother’s family is from China so we have fair skin and once I get out in the sun, I get a nice tan.

“I wouldn’t say any of the boys at Villa have fake tans.

“Girls now but boys, no, not really. I think once you’re sitting in Majorca, and thirty degree heat is on you, you’re going to get a tan.”

Greg and RT 2FM radio presenter Doireen Garyhy teamed up as judges in Quragh for the Dubai Duty Free Most Stylish competition in association with K Club.

They were both booked by the luxury hotel as celebrity judges and their lovely shared photos at the race course sparked a lot of comments about ‘couple goals’.

The winners of Most Stylish went to Olive Foley from Killow, Ko Claire and Harry Kovape from Bournemouth.

Although it was actually a very interesting – and highly productive – day for Sean and Sinead O’Brien.

It was their first day running since their wedding last June and also their first date since the birth of their son, Kuan, nine weeks ago.
Both Cyan and Sinead were selected as one of three finalists in the Most Stylish Men’s and Women’s categories, achieving double success on the race course.

Cian, a tax analyst, wore a Benetti windowpane jacket and gingham check waistcoat, while Sinead, a geography and business teacher in Drumcondra, wore a rented dress from Happy Days and her Louboutin wedding shoes.
And to their dismay, they both went home with vouchers for dinner for the two at the K Club.
