Despite the delay in production and a change in location, Love Island has finally made it back to CBS this summer for its sophomore season.
The hit dating reality show – which is based on the UK version – kicked off on Monday, August 24th and introduced America to a whole new cast of singletons.
One of the cast members who immediately stood out to viewers and contestants alike was Tre Forte. Tre, a former college football star, is taking his competitive nature to the dating game and looking to get what he wants.
So, with Tre rocketing onto our screens, we thought it best to find out more about his past. Read about Tre’s football career at Ohio State University here.
Meet Tre Forte
Trevon “Tre” Forte, 25, is a personal trainer looking for love this season of Love Island. He currently lives in Boca Raton, Florida but is originally from Youngstown, Ohio.
In his Love Island interview, Tre explained his reasons for going on the show. Tre said:
People most likely label me as a player and they’re correct. I’m honest. I’ve been single for about four years now because I was a monster. I’m a changed man now. I told myself that the next girl that I’m with, I’m going to make sure I’m all in. So if I go on here and I meet an attractive girl who has a really good vibe and I connect with her, then the sky’s the limit. She may end up being my girlfriend, she may be my wife, who knows?
