Love Island’s Scott van-der Sluis reveals when he got the US Love Island offer after being branded a ‘game player’ by fans
He has caused quite a stir in the Love Island scene.
And Scott van-der-Sluis took to Instagram to clear up the rumors surrounding his bombastic performance on US Love Island.
The 22-year-old shocked viewers last week when he appeared on the US version of the show just weeks after leaving the UK villa, with some viewers branding him a “game player”.
The situation had caused some understandable confusion among fans as the reconciliation between Scott and his lover Catherine Agbaje came just days before his appearance on the US show.
But during an Instagram Q&A session moderated by Scott’s friend Dan Hawkins and his sister Steph, one fan asked, “As there are so many rumours, when did he get this offer?”

Honesty: However, during an Instagram Q&A session moderated by Scott’s friend Dan Hawkins and his sister Steph, one fan asked: “When did he get this offer as there are so many rumours?”
The response clarified the situation: “There were many rumors circulating but Scott was asked a few days after leaving the British villa and had to make a decision within 24 hours.”
“So by the time of reunion it was signed and sealed and all the other islanders were aware of and supported his decision.”
Other islanders have expressed their support for Scott’s decision, such as this year’s winner Sammy Root, who told his TikTok followers, “You have to rate it.”
“He works hard.”
Though Kady McDermott often got in each other’s way, she was supportive and wished Scott the best of luck in finding love on the show.
She told her followers, “You gotta do what you gotta do, but people say and think what they want me to do, but one thing is I never lie.”
‘I never lie.’
Entering the villa, Scott was immediately recognized by the British show when he met Kassy, his first date.
