Economics graduate and new Love Island bomb 2022


Surprise! Another islander with someone famous in the family!

Love Island gives us a double newcomer situation, as Jay and Remi are about to strut their stuff in villa 2022 and turn heads. The boys add to the ever-growing list of bombshells there have already been this year, and come hot on the heels of Afia becoming the first islander to be dropped in this series.

One of the two boys is Jay – who is 28 and says he’s at the point in his life where he might need a helping hand from the Love Island producers. Sure. Here’s everything you need to know about him.

Jay is 28 and thinks it’s the right time in his life to head to Love Island

Jay Younger is 28 and comes from Edinburgh. Ironically, he’s actually one of the oldest contestants on the show this year. When asked why Love Island, Jay said: “I think I’m at the point in my life where it would be quite fun to find someone and have fun along the way. And doing it in Mallorca and in the villa would be a great opportunity, so why not?

He works as an investment analyst and studied economics and finance at university

Currently, Jay works as an investment analyst. He studied economics and finance at Herriot-Watt University and graduated with high honors in 2017. Smart too!

Speaking about his job and how it makes him a good catch, Jay said: “I think I really have what most women want. I have a good job, I think I’m a good looking boy and I have a lot of fun, so I feel like I could add a lot of value to their life if they add a lot of value to mine.

“I’m probably the heart of the party”

Jay said he thought he would be a “supporting islander” for the other cast members. He added: “I think I’m going to bring a lot of fun. Hopefully some good laughs along the way and maybe some indecisive decisions.

He doesn’t look too convinced here, but Jay said he was “probably” the heart of the party. He said his friends and family would describe him as “quite modest”. However, he said he was “very competitive”, so “wouldn’t be afraid to go after a girl if I wanted her”.

Step away from Gemma Owen, Jay is also a Love Island 2022 Islander with a famous family member!

Gemma is not the only one! Asked if he had any claim to fame, Jay said: “My grandfather played for Liverpool and he was captain of Scotland in the 1950s. He was in the Hall of Fame from Liverpool and he was in the Hibernian FC Hall of Fame. His grandfather was Tommy Younger, who played from 1948 to 1963. I wonder if he will tell his fellow islanders?

His Instagram isn’t really giving anything away as Jay only has 21 posts and most of them are just fitness pics. But, he has 3.8k followers and his handle is @jayyounger_, if you are interested. In his spare time, Jay regularly competes in NFG (National Fitness Games) and Turf competitions.
