The tagline ’31-year-old carpenter from Bournemouth’ probably isn’t the sexiest of introductions.

However, Paul Knops is actually smoking hot.

As the oldest contestant to join the Love Island 2018 cast, we can expect a backlash of ridicule from social media – just look at what happened to 29-year-old Laura Anderson.

Yet, a glimpse at these seven pics from Paul Knops’s Instagram and your opinion should instantly change.

Paul – the unlikely hero!

1. Red & Hot

It may not be cars, but ‘hell’, this is a hot look.

Hopefully, Paul can strike up some petrolhead convos with Dr Alex.

Or maybe just pose around for us like this.

Either/or.

Nothing better then a summers day ride. #ducati #panigale #1199s #motorbike

2. Part-time Model

The ’31-year-old carpenter from Bournemouth’ is also a part-time model. And he kills it.

Half British and Swedish here’s ‘Nopsie’ striking a pose in New York.

3. Full-time Model

Okay, with shots like this, why isn’t Paul Knops a full-time model?

Repping that classic tighty-whitey underwear look, this is Armani modelling at its finest.

Only 1,000 likes?!?

4. Hat’s Off

Not everyone can pull off a stupid big hat.

The Bournemouth carpenter can, though.

Let’s hope he’s packed that sun-shielding weapon for the long days of Love Island villa lounging!

5. GQ Model

For any girl who manages to snap up Paul in the recouling, they will officially be dating a GQ model.

Come on, that sounds much better than dating a personal trainer, a personal trainer, a different personal trainer or whatever fancy job it is that Wes Nelson has.

Wake up, be present! In British GQ #GQ #GQfitness #wmodel

6. Peaky Blinders

The peaky blinder hat can be worn in two very different ways.

More than often it looks terrible, though.

For example here, with The Only Way is Essex Star, James Lock.

Our man Paul Knops, however…

7.  Get in the F*ckin Car

We can’t imagine that Paul Knops was actually hitchhiking here.

And if he was…

Well, we imagine it wasn’t long before he got to where he wanted!
