Yewande Biala is a Dublin girl born and raised in Ireland, which you can hear in her accent from time to time. She was born on 26 October 1995 to her parents, who put an emphasis on education early on in her life, and she started her education journey in her hometown.
The girl from Dublin finished her education and was working as a scientist when she went to audition so she can appear in the 2019 season of 'Love Island.' The reality romance show is about a group of boys and girls left on a picturesque location while they try to find love with one another is a massive hit among British television viewers.
Yewande got in the fifth series of the show, which is known for its lack of diversity, and the girl from Dublin was there on the show from Day one. People will tell you the show is about finding love and a soul mate but the primary focus of the people involved in the show is to get famous and famous, Yewande became.
Yewande was one of the 12 first day contestants to enter the villa, and she was quick to form a friendship with Amber Gill and Yewande Biala. On the first coupling, she and Michael coupled up after being the only two remaining from the initial group.
It was apparent the two were not meant to be together and just be friends, which is why she and Danny coupled up soon after. Fans saw the connection between the two, and they initially saw the connection between themselves, but things started to get rocky for the couple when Arabella arrived in the villa.
Danny told Yewande, he wanted to get to know Arabella, and after getting angry for a while, she allowed Danny to go explore, which was her downfall on the show. Arabella and Danny got close, and in a shocking recoupling, Yewande was dumped out of the villa after Danny chose Arabella over her.
Life After Love Island
The whole point of going to Love Island is to get a following on social media, and considering series five was the most-watched installment of the show when Yewande arrived home, she was followed by more than 900,000 followers on Instagram.
Yewande, like most of all the contestants, became Instagram celebrities and influencers but the biggest thing she was involved in after the show was when she and Marcel Sommerville were asked to appear in front of the house of commons to talk about the low wages paid by reality TV shows to the contestants.
The inquiry was started after a guest's death on 'The Jeremy Kyle' Show, and two former Love Island contestants committed suicide. Yewande and Sommerville were grilled by the representatives, but both gave good to great responses about their experience on the ITV reality show.
Yewande is also teaming up with other former contestants and her two friends from series five to start a podcast called 'Reality Check.' The three friends, winner Amber Gill, contestants Anna Vakili and Yewande Biala, are going to be doing a podcast together, and you will be able to hear it soon.
What is Yewande Biala’s Net Worth?
The obvious assumption people make about the contestants of Love Island is they get paid a lot of money to appear on the show. The fact is they are not paid a lot; in stark opposite to the assumption, the contestants make about $3.6 per hour appearing on the show, and when Yewande was dumped out of the house, she went home with less than $500 as a payment from the show.
The only reason people are okay with getting such low sums of money is because of what comes after the show, which is more lucrative. The appearance on the show helps build the contestant's profile, and there are hundreds of thousands of followers at the minimum on their Instagram and other social media platforms.
Business opportunities open up for the contestants once they leave the villa, and this is the way they can make some money. When everything is taken into consideration, the net worth of Yewande Biala is somewhere between $300k-$500k, and it is only going to rise from here on out as she spreads her wings into other business ventures.
