Everyone’s talking about.. How many people applied for Love Island

Because the world is cruel, people are giving out that more people applied for Love Island than applied to go to Oxford or Cambridge University. You know, how those two things are exactly relatable?

Some people were lamenting the 85,000 people who applied to the show compared to the 36,000 who applied for places at the top colleges. Love Island has a prize of £50,000 compared with the significant amount of debt that college in the UK will leave you with so it’s not difficult to see why more people applied but nevertheless people are giving out.
