We’re launching a professional service to help you get cast for next year’s Love Island show – the Reality Star Squad.
We decided to launch the service after this year’s Love Island was the most popular yet, with around 85,000 people applying, which is more applicants than Oxford and Cambridge receive combined every year*! Additionally recent research shows 20% of millennials secretly want to be famous**, so there’s obvious demand for a service like this.
You can hire the Reality Star Squad here.
The aim of the squad is to coach those who want to spend the summer of 2019 in the Love Island villa, so they have the best chance of being cast by producers. Some professionals in the squad have had first-hand experience appearing on a show like Love Island and some have worked extensively within the TV and media industry.
The service is aimed predominantly at people aged between 18 and 35 years old, however if you’re older than that you can still hire the team (we’ve only said that because previous Islanders have been between that age group). The Reality Star Squad’s main aim is to give clients the best chance of being noticed by ITV2 producers and appearing on Love Island, using ‘insider’ knowledge of the process, expertise and tips.
Clients will have to surrender their social media profiles to the social media expert, who will tutor them on what type of content to post and assist them with gaining more exposure through platforms like Twitter and Instagram. A personal trainer, wardrobe consultant, hair stylist and make-up artist will get the client in shape if needed and give them a modern makeover in line with the latest trends.
The Reality Star Squad will also teach the client how to do makeup, hair and pick stylish clothes so they can continue their practices after the coaching ends. An acting coach will also be on hand to teach the client how to behave on screen and in scripted situations.
Professionals who work within personal training, acting, social media, make-up, hair styling and fashion can sign up to be a part of the Reality Star Squad here.
The service costs £500 a month, with a minimum three months of coaching recommended, however that’s up to you! Currently the reality star coaching is only available in London, but we are recruiting for professionals in other areas to make the service available nationwide.
Kai Feller, co-founder of Bark.com, said,
“Reality TV, and more specifically Love Island, is huge right now. It’s a viable career path for millennials, a lot of money is to be made from these shows, you just have to look at past Love Island contestants to see that. Obviously, we’re not saying everyone who is coached by our Reality Star Squad is guaranteed to end up with fame and fortune, but it will give them the best chance at it.
“Our squad will not only coach clients on how to get noticed by ITV2’s producers and gain a bigger following on social media, but prepare them for life in the public eye. We’re equipping them with the tools they need to be a success, at a very reasonable price! I encourage any professionals who work within the stated sectors to register online to be a part of the squad, demand is huge, and it’s just going to get higher!”
