Who is K-Ci Maultsby? Fans hope Filipino barber can mend Trina's heart on 'Love Island'
Ever since Melvin 'Cinco' Holland Jr dumped Trina Njoroge on 'Love Island', fans have been demanding for new boys to be sent for her. Trina was stuck in a messy love triangle with Cinco and Cashay Proudfoot. But after Cashay returned from Casa Amor with Charlie Lynch and seemed happier than ever, Cinco who was already coupled up with Trina had a change of heart and decided to pursue Cash instead.
Watching Trina broken-hearted, fans were rooting for her to find love and were hoping for a new islander to catch her eye. It looks like fans' wishes might come true soon as two new islanders will be making their big debut on the upcoming episode of 'Love Island'- Andre Luis Brunelli and K-Ci Maultsby. Ever since K-Ci was announced as the new islander, fans have already begun rooting for Trina and him. Read on to know all about K-Ci.
Who is the new 'Love Island' star K-Ci Maultsby?
The new hunk on the block is a Filipino American from the Bay Area. K-Ci's Instagram bio reveals that he is a multi-talented person. He not only runs his own barbershop in the Bay Area but is also a certified personal trainer at Superior Gains. One glance at his Insta page and it's clear that he also moonlights as a model looking at the several shots from his modeling assignments shared on his page. He also played basketball in college.
Since K-Ci has no access to social media while filming for 'Love Island', his brother posted the big news of him making his debut on the dating show on his behalf. "K-Ci will be on season 3 of Love Island!! Tune into @loveislandusa this season on CBS or Paramount+ & download the app! It comes on tonight at 9pm EST. His page is being run by his brother. K-Ci can’t contact us while he’s in the villa.
