Who is Andre Brunelli? 'Love Island' star and model featured in a Jennifer Lopez music video
Very soon Will Moncada won't be the only hot Latino islander in the villa as Brazilian model Andre will be joining him
Ever since the last elimination where Melvin 'Cinco' Holland Jr. and Genevieve Shawcross were voted out of 'Love Island', fans had been demanding for new boys to be added to the villa. After watching Cinco brutally break Trina Njoroge's heart and Cashay Proudfoot being dumped by Charlie Lynch, fans couldn't wait for the new boys to come in and woo the fan-favorite islanders.
Unfortunately, the showrunners decided to mix things up and sent three new girls to the villa- Alana Paolucci, Elly Steffen, and Bailey Marshall. This led to OG islander Korey Gandy's head-turning, which made Olivia Kaiser vulnerable. Thankfully, the upcoming episode will be featuring two new boys making their big debut on 'Love Island', one of them is handsome model Andre Luis Brunelli. However 'Love Island' won't be Andre's first stint in front of the cameras, prior to making his big debut on the popular reality dating show, Andre was featured on Jennifer Lopez's music video- 'Cambia El Paso'. In the music video JLo can be seen flicking her hand at him and walking away from him angrily. Aside from starring in a music video opposite one of the biggest stars on the planet, what sets Andre apart from the other islanders is him being a parent to his five-year-old daughter. Read on to know all about Andre.

In 2019, he took to his Instagram to reveal that he became an American citizen. He wrote, "Today I became an American citizen 🇺🇸 I couldnt hold back the tears 😭 having my mom there made this such a special moment. Her sacrifices and commitment to raising me here where I would have an abundant amount of opportunities is what led to this moment. Being a first-generation immigrant I am the bridge from my family in Brazil to my family in the US. Becoming a citizen will allow me to give my father and little brothers the option to also become permanent residents and to know I am opening the door for my brothers to be able to attend school here means so much to me. Thank you to everyone who has made an impact in my life since coming to America, im truly thankful and so proud to be a Brasilian citizen as well as now an American citizen ♥️"
