The Love Island prize pot stands at £25,000 per person, until our reality TV dreams come true and one person pockets all the cash anyway, but everyone knows that the real money is made outside the villa.

From ads for car perfume (totally a thing), to ones promoting [‘immunity support’ juices](http://advertising ‘immunity support’ juices in midst of coronavirus pandemic) in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic (eye roll), islanders can pay their bills by posing with products on their social media accounts. For a while at least.

We're fairly au fait with how much the dating show stars can make from Instagram, and if you need a reminder, check out what the female 2019 finalists are said to earn:

Runner-up Molly-Mae Hague might not have taken the top spot on Love Island with her boyfriend Tommy Fury, but she's certainly taken the top spot with this alleged amount. It's estimated she earns £399,000 from sponsored posts per month. This doesn't take into account the alleged £500,000 she reportedly got paid for her PrettyLittleThing clothing range. WOWEE.

But what's new to us is how much they're estimated to make from video sharing site TikTok.

And the Love Island star said to have the potential to make the most money per TikTok post, is...

Congrats, Amber ©ITV

Amber Gill. Shocked? We were. No shade intended to the self-proclaimed 'first solo winner of Love Island' but we thought it would be Molly-Mae Hague as she was making her money from social media before she even went into the villa.

Congrats though, hun, We're thrilled for you.
