New recruiter Eva steps up to challenge in Love Island villa

What’s better than having a recruiter on ITV smash hit show Love Island?

Having two recruiters on Love Island, of course!

This past week has seen the arrival of Bromley, South-East London girl Eva Zapico, who according to her LinkedIn profile is a life science contract recruitment associate consultant at executive and interim contract recruiter Concilium Search. Just to remind those of you not watching (or preferring to count grains of sugar and place them in a jar with tweezers), our original representative on the show is Oxford City semi-professional footballer and recruiter Finley Tapp, who descended upon the island last month.

It seems our Eva has all the confidence one would expect from a recruiter as she rates herself 10/10 in the looks department, according to her ITV2 profile. “How can you expect someone to love you if you don't love yourself?” she says.

Our Eva also appears to have a competitive streak, as she added: “I don’t owe anyone anything – the game is the game.”

And that statement has certainly proved true, as she managed to turn Nas’s head last night, ensuring he didn’t stay ‘loyal’ to Demi (are you following all this?) and entered the villa in the latest recoupling – much to the shock and horror of the original girls. So good luck with that, Eva...

And as for Finn? Well, he stayed loyal to Paige and was reunited with her back at the main villa, so love certainly seems to be in the air for our IT recruiter. Unless Eva decides to pull him for a chat about the latest CRM system or his preferred method of interviewing…

Let the games begin!
