Who is Leslie Golden? Ex-circus employee will make her TV debut on 'Love Island: Casa Amor'
After the shocking elimination of four islanders from 'Love Island', the villa might seem a bit empty. But the islanders won't have to wait for too long before the bills are once again brimming with hot islanders as the doors to Casa Amor will be opening up very soon.
If you're wondering what Casa Amor is all about then read on. The existing couples are split up and sent to a different villa called Casa Amor. A new set of girls are brought in for the boys, while a new set of boys are brought in for the girls. The couples compete with their partners in separate villas, where they either give in to temptation and find a new partner or stay loyal to their partner. Towards the end of Casa Amor, the couples are brought back together and they have to make the big decision of whether they want to stay with their partner or recouple with someone new. One of the Casa Amor hotties who will be trying to tempt the OG islanders is Leslie Golden. Here's all you need to know about Leslie ahead of her big debut on 'Love Island'.

Who is Leslie Golden?
Leslie is a 24-year-old model from Red Water, Texas. While most of her recent Instagram posts are filled with pictures from her photoshoots and modeling assignments, if you dig a little deeper you might be pleasantly surprised to discover that Leslie is definitely a lot more than just a pretty face. Her early Instagram posts feature Leslie's cheerleading practice sessions. Although she complaints about poor upper body strength, the Texas resident still managed to put on quite a performance.
Her next set of posts feature her working at a circus. She shared, "I met a little girl at the water park yesterday and she asked me where I worked. I told her I was in the circus. She told me “that’s not a good job, you should quit and work at McDonald’s and give me free happy meals”. And I just know she’s gonna go places."
She is also pretty open about her sexuality. Aside from her Instagram bio featuring a rainbow emoji, in one of the posts, she revealed that she likes girls. Recently while celebrating Pride Month, the model posted, "HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!🌈 Literally a dream to be able to shoot @clubexxclothing 2021 #pride line with @dollskill ✨
This month is about being proud of who you are, even if the world is telling you that you shouldn’t be. This is such a beautifully diverse community that makes me SO proud to be a part of it. I’ll never stop spreading love, and pushing for others to have the ability to love whoever they choose. Thank y’all for the constant love and support. Y’all remember to have a SAFE and wonderful Pride month!(: 🏳️🌈"
Considering her love for tattoos we wouldn't be surprised if Leslie and Korey Gandy make a connection during Casa Amor. "In my family, we go to the tattoo shop for just about every holiday or birthday. My dad even bought a tattoo gun to keep around the house to save money, even though none of us can even draw steady with a pencil.😅 This is probably the only real thing my family bonds over, yet so many people have told me that I’d look “better” without tattoos. Or that I look trashy, or I’ve “ruined my body”. I’m so proud of myself for never listening to that because my tattoos have so many cool stories of where I’ve been. They remind me of the mental state I was in when getting them and remind me of my journey that got me to where I am now. Be proud of who you are and where you come from. There is absolutely nothing wrong in having a style or interest that is unique to you. (:" Leslie penned her thoughts in a post.
