Jack Fincham supports Love Island as successful career

Share article:

Jack Fincham has supported the idea that "Love Island" can provide a successful career as opposed to Oxbridge.

It was recently revealed the 85,000 applications producers received for the reality show were far more than those submitted to attend the prestigious Oxford and Cambridge universities, and though this year's winner wouldn't advise his fans not to pursue their education, he's grateful for the opportunities the programme has presented to him.

Admitting he "just laughed" when he was told about the application figures, Jack told Metro newspaper: "I can't say, "Don't go for your education", but in terms of the opportunities and doors it can open for you, it has changed my life for the better and created opportunities for me. So for me personally that would be the way forward... the world is my oyster at the moment."

But Jack - who is still in a relationship with Island girlfriend Dani Dyer - insisted he hasn't made his fortune yet.

He said: "I wish I was a millionaire I am just gonna work really hard."

However, the 26-year-old former stationery salesman won't accept money for promotional posts on Instagram that don't feel genuine.

He said: "I've had offers to post on Instagram, but I don't want to post stuff that I wouldn't wear myself or it doesn't make sense to my life."

While Jack had a great experience on the show, he does think it can promote an unrealistic body image.

He said: "I think there is pressure on guys. I think a lot of people who watch it go, "I'd love to look like that."

"I'm a prime example of being happy in your own skin. If you want to go to the gym and look like that, do it for you, and not because you feel you have to."

But being on the show has made him a much more confident person.

He said: "It does test you. I think coming out of there has made me stronger and definitely able to speak my feelings freely. Before, sometimes I would keep it to myself and feel a bit down. Now, I just say, "I feel like this". It's much better to be like that."
