Ella Caunter, 20.

Ella in her own words

As the youngest on the island, it might surprise people that my favourite TV show is Coronation Street! But I’m fun and outgoing, and dancing is my passion. I’m excited to potentially find love in Fiji. I’d like to be taken out for a picnic with a view, but the guy can’t smell bad because that’s my biggest turn-off. My first boyfriend left me for another girl, so I’m coming into this game with a strong mindset and my best asset – a great bum!

Are you looking for love coming into the show?

I am open to it. I’m just going to let what happens on the show happen and if I fall in love then that would be a bonus.

Describe yourself in three words…

Fun, outgoing and bubbly.

What’s your biggest achievement in life so far?

Definitely going to the World Hip Hop Dance Championships in Las Vegas in 2016 and representing New Zealand. I finally got to live out my dream.

Describe your ideal date…

My ideal date would be something really chill but romantic, like a picnic with a nice view.

Describe your ideal partner and what qualities they’d have…

Someone who is funny, light-hearted, outgoing and driven. Someone who is passionate about certain things in their life.


A guy who looks after himself, someone who smells nice or has nice eyes.


Someone who smells bad and someone who’s not independent or motivated.
