The former solicitor, who quit her job to appear on the ITV2 show, might have been mugged off by Adam Collard and dumped after 16 days in the villa, but she’s already cashed in more than her old yearly salary. Watch the painfully awkward moment Love Island’s Samira Mighty watches Eyal Booker call her a snake behind her back… And it’s all through the wonderful world of Instagram. By now we’ve all heard whispers of the ludicrous amounts influencers get paid for their relentless #Ad’s and #Spon’s, and Rosie has pretty much confirmed the rumours are true. Instagram/Rosieawilliams Appearing on Radio 5 Live alongside last year’s winner Amber Davies, Rosie revealed: “I’ve been very lucky so far.” She added: “Mine’s like Instagram posts and events, etc. For me I went from a job that I studied eight years to achieve to doing this.” Instagram/Rosieawilliams Can you actually imagine spending eight years of your life studying for something, only to sack it all off reality TV? To be fair, we can hardly blame her for running to the money flow. And it turns out she may not have been bringing in as much coin as you would think in the legal profession.
“I feel like the legal profession is struggling at the moment… I’ve made my year earnings in a month, let’s just say that, doing this,” she revealed. Unfortunately, Rosie didn’t divulge exactly how much moolah she was getting before, but it’s probably safe to say she hasn’t gone without this month. Last year’s Love Island winner, Amber Davies, chimed in and made no secret of how much her financial situation has changed (and not just because she took home the £50k prize fund). “I came from a working class family, I’ve now been fortunate to earn a lot of money, I feel very grateful,” she said. She added: “I’ve been able to buy things and do things I’ve never been able to before”.
So the moral of the story, kids, is that there’s a hell of a lot of money to be made here, but is it worth getting mugged off on telly? Probably.
