Married At First Sight’s Al Perkins has joined the upcoming season of Love Island Australia, as pictures taken this week show the star chatting to a group of bikini-clad beauties inside the show’s stunning Mallorca Villa.
In May, the 25-year-old told Daily Mail Australia he had quit his job as a carpenter to make it as a full-time influencer after becoming a fan favourite on the Channel Nine dating show.
And now, he appears to be cashing in on his fame even further by landing a coveted spot in the Love Island cast.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in May, the 25-year-old let slip that he’s no longer working as a chippie after appearing on the Channel Nine experiment.
‘I had so much on after the show finished. It became too much of a balancing act with all the new opportunities that have popped up,’ he explained.
‘I was working three days a week then went to two days then sometimes just working one day because I was having so much fun,’ he added.
The Bondi-based star, who boasts a whopping 275,000 Instagram followers, can expect to make upwards of $1,889 per post from sponsored posts.
