Eyal Booker: 7 reasons we HATED and LOVED the Love Island star

Eyal Booker is a tricky person to judge.

The curly-haired model is both unbearably spiritual and morally self-righteous yet kinda sweet and gentleman-like at the same time.

With a face like a god and abs carved by Zeus’ lightning forks himself, the recently dumped Love Island hottie is a seriously difficult person to both tolerate and adore.

Here are 7 reasons why we both HATED and LOVED Eyal Booker!

Love Island: SR4: Ep7 on ITV2

LOVE: Eyal is a Gentleman

If there is one thing Eyal Booker proved during his three weeks on Love Island, it’s that he is an old-school gentleman at heart.

Adam Collard wallowed in his bed of smarminess having sent Rosie Williams to the outside sofa, while Wes Nelson retreated for a kip on the outside bed yet brought a girl that wasn’t his girlfriend – Wes didn’t really ‘get’ the concept.

However, on two separate occasions, Eyal Booker scurried after both Megan Barton-Hanson and Hayley Hughes, politely yet forcefully telling them to take the bedroom spot.

HATE: His Creepy Vibes

Every time Booker Eyal attempts to flirt with women inside the villa, it instantly makes audiences skin crawl.

He has this overly soft yet sexually charged manner which results in the look of a shaggy-haired goat lost in headlights.

Before his kiss with Ellie Booker in episode 21, Eyal was leaning and swaying trying to give El his best sex eyes.

Nah. Creepy.

LOVE: Eyal’s Abs

You can’t deny it, Eyal has some great abs.

If you’re not into the hulking and bulking type geezers who have padded muscles strapped to every body part – such as Wes and Adam – Eyal offers those deliciously cut abs without the slabs of extra meat.

Eyal, if you’re ever on TV again, just shut the f*ck up and let your mid-drift do the talking.

HATE: His Tone of Voice

Eyal only seems to have two tones of voice – whispering and light whispering.

Every time he opens his mouth the soothing tones of his voice become a fist-clenching annoyance.

Stop speaking so softly, calm things stress us out!

LOVE: Eyal’s General Face

It’s easy to see why Eyal Booker is a model.

There are no huge standout features to Eyal’s mug but the whole thing is just put together nicely – one of the reasons he managed to woo Hayley, Megan and Ellie.

Nevertheless, we now bid goodbye to that beautiful face.

HATE: The Way He Constructs Sentences

Eyal Booker talks a little bit like Yoda, with his sentences constructed in odd and confusing rhythms.

We know what he is saying, but at the same time, we don’t actually know what the hell he is on about.

Dr Alex knows what we mean…

LOVE: Eyal’s Final Relationship With Dr Alex

Eyal and Dr Alex George enjoyed a rollercoaster relationship inside the villa.

While Eyal played the initial villain having stolen Megan from under his nose, the model’s time in the villa ended in heart-warming fashion.

Eyal stood up for Alex in a spirited scene of bromance, slamming Ellie Brown for using the doctor and playing a game, adding that Al “didn’t deserve to be treated like that”.

Come Eyal’s final bow, and here he is sleeping next to buddy Alex on the sofa, having given up his bed for Megan.

Alex said: I think me and Eyal should just couple up together.”
