Love Island Australia is accepting applications through Tinder for 2021

Calling all single people, Love Island Australia has started casting for their upcoming season through Tinder.

The world’s most popular dating app has been named ‘official casting partner’ for the reality show, which will begin filming later this year.

While the first two seasons were filmed in Spain and Fiji, the villa is being relocated to the Gold Coast for 2021 due to international travel restrictions.

Tinder users can apply to be on Love Island through the app by swiping right on application cards that will appear on the main page.

Their profile will then be reviewed and verified by the team at Tinder.

If selected, they will be added to a ‘Priority List’, which means they are guaranteed to be seen by the show’s casting team.


To help potential cast members have their best chance at being on the show and sitting poolside at the villa, Tinder and Love Island have shared their top five casting tips:

  1. Show off your unique personality with an authentic bio

  2. Upload solo photos and videos that best represent you

  3. Add a Spotify anthem

  4. Make sure you select your ‘passions’ on your profile

  5. Be single and using Tinder regularly

In a statement announcing their collaboration, Country Director for Tinder Australia, Kristen Hardeman, said: “Tinder has the widest and most diverse community of singles Down Under, so as this long-awaited dating season heats up, being on Tinder can change everything.”

Nine’s Head of Powered, Liana Dubois added: “Tinder delivers to Love Island an elevation of our casting capabilities, adding value to the very core of the show, while Love Island’s audience scale and deep cultural phenomena puts Tinder at the heart of looking for love.”

The CEO of production company ITV Studios Australia also highlighted that through wider casting on Tinder, fans can expect the show’s cast to be more diverse and ‘exciting’ for 2021.
