Meet the cast of Love Island Australia: Including a model, a rugby player, and a beauty queen.

Praise be to the gods of trashy TV.

Love Island is nearly here.

I can almost smell the mango daiquiris… and the drama… and the fake tan.

This morning Sophie Monk, the queen of island-based reality dating shows, released the very first images of the Love Island contestants.

Just as predicted they’re all very young, and very ripped, and very shiny, and they would very much like to start drinking the mango daiquiris pls.

The first 10 contestants will compete in the show to see who has the most Instagram followers who will win love and, erm, $250,000.

Anywho, here they are (BYO daiquiris):
