Love Island's Scott van-der-Sluis dumped from USA villa
The contestant entered as a bombshell just weeks after appearing in the UK version of the show.
Love Island’s Scott van-der-Sluis has been booted out of the USA villa after only a few days.
The professional footballer joined Love Island USA earlier in August, entering as a bombshell just weeks after appearing in the UK version of the show, where he failed to find love.
However, things once again took a turn for the worse as he was eliminated alongside Johnnie Olivia after only a week in the villa after the couple received the fewest amount of public votes.
Speaking about his surprise exit and his connection with Olivia, he said (via The Mirror): "My time in the villa was short, sweet, but worthwhile. I'm excited to see how the connection with this one goes. I like being around her."
During his time in the UK villa, Scott formed a close bond with Catherine Agbaje, before her head was turned in Casa Amor and she chose to re-couple.
Scott’s Love Island USA stint came as a shock to many, including some of the season 10 islanders.
In a now-deleted Tweet, Kady McDermott - who starred in both season 2 and 10 - responded to a fan asking about Scott joining the USA series.
She said: "I wasn't going to comment on this but I'm probably getting thousands of messages on this. Scott actually messaged me the other day and was like, 'Kady, I'm doing a you', I was like, 'Elaborate, what do you mean you're doing a me?' And obviously said he's going on Love Island USA."
She continued: "Best of luck to him and I said that to him. You've got to do, what you've got to do but, people say and think what they want about me but one thing is that I never lie. I never lie."
Sammy Root also weighed in on Scott's Love Island USA appearance during a TikTok live.
"What do I think of Scott in Love Island USA? You've got to rate it. He's working hard," he said.
