I’ve watched Love Island over and over again over the years, but I’ve never had a strong opinion of the final: who wins, who loses, who can ultimately rob me of the £50k prize money. But then again, I never met this year’s undeniably MVP, Ekin-Su.
say “met”; I think anyone who has watched even half of this eighth season will have a fangirl craze because they find themselves in the actual presence of the show that claims to be “Turkish Joy”. As many people I have observed on Twitter before, Ekin-Su is this moment. She is that girl. She is the embodiment of Protagonist Syndrome. For me, it wasn’t a contest: I knew she had to win.
And not just £50k, shared with buff partner Davide Sanclimenti – I really feel she has to win brand deals, entertainment contracts; maybe even a British Pride award for services to LOLs Wednesday night.
During her first few days on Love Island, I noticed that Ekin-Su seemed a bit too polished for a popular show dominated by “real people” and idle chatter. “It’s like a presenter has wandered off to book and start chatting with guys,” I think on Twitter, confused as she delivers clear full sentences and a flirty style that doesn’t work. filter, in a show where one of the contestants once wondered if Brexit was possible. which means we “won’t have any trees” (a show where the controversial highlight of this season was Andrew’s immortal line, “I lick her t*t or whatever what”).
But soon Ekin-Su said plainly, “Do you like me or something?” style has become an asset to the show’s filmography. Instinctively, this woman knows what emotional eighth season viewers crave from their favorite chaotic dating show — and she’s done it.
Crawl on all fours to the terrace to kiss Jay of the Scottish bomb; challenge the beginner model Natalia with pancakes, then appeared in black sunglasses and large from head to toe, flanked by two “bodyguards”; Thinly veiled proverbs about craving “long, creamy” cannelloni.
She has stormed countless times in her body-hugging gown, swirling Bambi lashes and caramel bun, even though she has nowhere to go but the mansion gardens. Once a soap star, Ekin gave us vibes of Dynasty, she gave us vibes about Footballers’ Wives, and yes, sometimes even once touch the Crossroads.
The women on the show didn’t immediately feel warm to Ekin-Su. Indeed, she’s quick to declare that she’s “not here to find a seasonal girlfriend” – she’s here to find the love of her life. But as relationships and drama play out over the show’s eight weeks, she takes on the role of the mother hen, often gathering the girls around her to cuddle and ask questions in the morning, and talk more. a talk with Tasha, Danica and Coco.
Even after being declared “an actress, a liar!” In one of the most memorable fights in Love Island history, she fought back to win not only Davide’s heart, but that of the entire mansion – and, I’d suggest, the entire nation.
Ekin’s natural talent for creating a television gold award has made more than one die-hard fan wonder if she is really a Love Island producer. There’s something of a drag queen towards Ekin-Su. Who could forget she sounded amazing when an angry competitor asked, “Ekin who?”: “I’m Ekin-Su, babes, and there’s only one of me.”
She’s so awesome that even her brother became a celebrity after about 24 words were uttered in Love Island’s four minutes on screen. This, for sure, is just the beginning. She created such a lively, engaging diva that the movie couldn’t be stopped at 10:35 a.m., August 1, 2022.

I have never come from a reality TV star who got his career after 5 minutes of popularity like now. I firmly believe that Ekin-Su should replace Laura Whitmore on Love Island and its sibling show, Aftersun. I wish she had her own Oprah-esque talk show where she helps couples solve their problems in her unique, no-nonsense way. I wanted her to represent us at Eurovision 2023 (she was in a Turkish pop duo, you know).
I want her and Davide to have a climactic Beckham-style wedding with thrones and matching outfits, and perhaps some traditional Italian-Turkish dancing.
After watching her competition speech with other contestants on the talent show last week, I really wanted her to take on the Queen’s Speech task after Her Majesty was no longer able to complete it. them anymore. What can I say? I’m not a royalist, but I believe in Ekin-Su’s power to unite, inspire and above all entertain. It’s what she deserves, and nothing more.
