Join us Saturday, August 14th at 11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET on Instagram live, Black Girl Nerds host Ryanne Bennett interviews Kay and Lei-Yen from the CBS hit reality show Love Island.
On the CBS series Love Island, singles come together in a tropical location to look for romance, with one couple winning a cash prize. In our interview, we welcome Kay and Lei-Yen.
Kay, 24, is a South Florida native with Jamaican roots. She grew up in a large family and helped raise her nieces, nephews, and cousins. Nowadays, this LA-based business owner is busy running her own swimsuit line – modeling her own designs. She also loves painting, working out, and traveling. Although she’s enjoying the single life, she misses having someone special to be affectionate with and go on adventures with.
Lei-Yen, 28, is a Brooklyn native with Caribbean roots, Lei-Yen is proud of her heritage and feels it gave her a more well-rounded upbringing. She lives in Houston where she attends Texas Southern University, while also working as a model. She’s obsessed with all things anime, Star Wars, and Harry Potter. She says her perfect partner would be Drake because he’s tall and chiseled.
Tune in to the Love Island Season 3 finale at 9pm, Sunday, August 15th on CBS. And catch up on the entire season on Paramount+!
