Slade Parker joins Love Island USA
Smooth-talking Slade entered the Love Island villa and said that he’d provide some ‘Southern Comfort’ for the season 3 ladies.
He first set his eyes on Alaskan babe Olivia because he assumed that they must share a love of the outdoors. Slade also mentioned that he enjoyed baseball and tends to go for brunettes during his Love Island debut.
Slade isn’t just looking for a fling on the CBS show and said: “I’m kind of at a point in my life where I wanna get a little more serious and hopefully meet someone that gonna make me better and I can make them better as well, in return.“
On Slade and Wes’ arrival, Olivia said: “I literally felt butterflies and my stomach dropped in the best way“.
