LOVE Island star Scott van der Sluis has revealed he got offered a huge amount of money to take part in three shows back to back.
The football player, 22, left fans gobsmacked when he entered Love Island USA shortly after leaving the UK version and then went on to film The Games.
Speaking about his controversial decision, Scott has now admitted that he was solely driven by money.
He told GK Barry on her Saving Grace podcast: “I had a week at home and then I got a call one day.
“First thing, I was like no and they went ‘we want you to do the USA one’ and I had heard about the Love Island games thing they were doing and they went ‘we want you to do this and this’ and put a figure in front of me and I was like ‘I’m going to f***king do it’.
“It was pretty much that. With the social media ban we are not getting as much as previous years, lets face it so if someone puts a figure in front of you – you are going to do it.

“I knew I would get the reaction I am getting. Coming out the USA one, I knew people would turn on me.”
It’s thought Scott was paid £100,000 for taking part in the shows.
The former goalkeep previously said about taking part: “I’m this young once and I would regret not doing some of the stuff I’ve been offered to do. And I think anyone else would do the same ultimately.”
Scott starred on ITV's summer installment of the show before he was booted off in July alongside Abi Moores, but it was his romance with Catherine Agbaje that helped him make a name for himself.
