The Love Island contestants had their first coupling up in the villa on Monday and Kaz Kamwi seems to have found what she's been looking for in Toby, after the two enjoyed their first date on Wednesday (30th June).
The fashion blogger from Essex said she's on the prowl for a gentleman in the Villa, after a history of dating disasters.
Kaz joins Sharon Gaffka, Aaron Francis, Liberty Poole, Hugo Hamond, Shannon Singh, Jake Cornish, Brad McClelland, Chloe Burrows, Toby Aromolaran and Faye Winter as an original cast member. She's also joined by late arrivals Liam Reardon and Chuggs Wallis.
Here are a few things we know about Kaz.
Kaz is a fashion blogger and influencer
Kaz creates fashion and style videos for her 69,000 Instagram followers and 9,164 TikTok followers.
She's already an established influencer and has worked with the likes of Oh Polly, Boux Avenue and ASOS.
Kaz's sister, Banji, is also an influencer and blogger. She's running Kaz's social media while she's in the villa.
She likes to travel
From Cape Town to Paris, this model likes the jetsetting life, by the looks of her Insta highlights.
She can be seen sporting stunning bikinis and stylish outfits all over the world.
Kaz is on the hunt for a gentleman in the villa - and for good reason. She once went on a date with a guy who turned out to be a mystery reviewer for the restaurant. While he got to eat for free, Kaz had to pay for her own meal!
Hopefully one of the lovely lads in the villa will show her that romance isn't dead.
"I need someone who's confident, who knows what they want and goes for it," she said. "I want a guy to rail me," she added, chuckling.
She likes to play chess
In one of her 'lockdown' highlights on Insta, there's a video of Kaz's slippers and the caption"I have no-one to play chess with, this is my current quarantine struggle."
Aww Kaz, we're sure you'll find somebody willing to play chess... or erm... tonsil tennis with you in the villa?
'Life is a party,' says Kaz
"I'm fun, dramatic, spontaneous. Friendly as well. Light-hearted. Life is a party - I'm not the mum in the group, my friends are not looking at me to look after them!"
Kaz is going to be quite a fun character to have in the villa. We can tell by her social media posts that the influencer doesn't take herself too seriously and enjoys a laugh with friends and family.
We look forward to getting to know her more.
What is Kaz's Instagram?
Kas and her 17,000 Instagram followers can be found at @kazkamwi.
Love Island is on weeknights at 9pm on ITV Hub . The episodes are available to stream on BritBox the following morning.
