On the very first episode of Love Island Australia, Vanessa Sierra attracted the attention of not one but three guys in the villa. But did you know she was once coupled up with a former Married At First Sight star?
The 24-year-old model has made no secret of the fact that she loves a bad boy and reality fans will definitely recognise this ex.
Earlier this year, Vanessa was not only involved with MAFS star Dan Webb, who infamously cheated on wife Tamara with Jessika Power but went on to date Jessika's brother, Rhyce Power.
There's even a photo of Rhyce and Tamara on Rhyce's Instagram account from their trip to Thailand in March 2019.
"You don't have to prove anything to anyone" we here doing us! 3 days into a gruelling 7 day tranining retreat with my good mate," he captioned the snap.

Rhyce and Dan aren't the only reality stars Vanessa is close with.
Back in February, the Love Island star shared a picture of herself with Gogglebox's Jad Nehmetallah and My Kitchen Rules former contestants Sonya Mefaddi and Ibby Moubadder for Jad's birthday.
What a good looking bunch!

Vanessa signed up for Love Island for a shot at love and heard about the show around the time of her last break up- talk about perfect timing!
"I've never considered something like this before, but I'm really excited," she said prior to entering the Villa. "I can't wait to have that family vibe in the Villa, hopefully make new friends and ultimately I want to find love."
As for her ideal man? Vanessa wants someone who's driven, a gym junkie and matches her lifestyle, but doesn't have time for cheaters or liars.

And Vanessa has brains as well as beauty.
Having grown up in Vanuatu for the first five years of her life, the model is also fluent in French and her language skills will make you swoon!
She also has a Bachelor of Finance and Economics degree and recently started a Masters in Computer Science.
"No one expects me to have a degree, they automatically think because I'm a model they don't expect me to have brains. It comes as quite a shock to people when they actually find out I am educated," she says.

Adam and Sam both had their eye on Vanessa in the first episode but it was third time lucky when she was picked by 6'5'' wrestler and model Matthew.
When host Sophie Monk asked what she thought of all the attention, Vanessa replied: "I don't know. I'm a bit overwhelmed to be honest!"
The two went on to have the second kiss of the season and are the hot couple of the Villa...at least for now!
