Who is Josh Goldstein?

Josh is a 24-year-old college athlete from Haverhill, Massachusetts. He is an alum of Southern NH University and appears to have graduated in 2019. One glance at his Instagram page, and it is clear that he is really proud of his athletic background. With several pictures from various games he has played in, Josh seems to be completely in love with baseball. In an Instagram post, Josh expressed his love for the game through a beautiful heartfelt note. He wrote, "Dear baseball, For the last 23 years you have been my life. Through the good and the bad I have given you my blood, sweat, and tears and you have given me more than I could ever imagine. I gave you my all and you handed me the best relationships, teammates, coaches, and family I could ever ask for." 

"I have had a couple days for it all to sink in and I do not know if this is the end for me, but leaving you so abruptly just does not seem right. Just like everyone else in this situation, I feel cheated. Sometimes life isn’t always fair and it can push you to your limits, but I definitely do not have any regrets when it comes to this game. Because of you I have been able to travel all across the country, win championships, go to 4 straight regional finals, experience a College World Series, and meet my best friends for the rest of my life. The game I will miss yes, but it’s the constant grind and sacrifice with my brothers that I will cherish forever. I do not know what the future holds for me yet, but I do know that you will always be part of me. #Penkid4L," he expressed. 



Josh's love isn't limited to just his sport but also includes his family and friends. In another post, Josh expressed his love and gratitude to his parents for being extremely supportive of his journey as a college baseball athlete. He shared, "There is a million different pictures I could have posted for this, but none more fitting then this one right here. Tears of joy hugging my 2 rocks after clinching a 2nd College World Series berth on my last ride in college baseball. A culmination of 24 years in the making coming to an end and I could not have done it without these 2 unbelievable human beings by my side every step of the way." 

He praised his parents for always being there for him and attributed all his success to them. "Your unwavering support and constant selflessness throughout my baseball career was something I had only dreamt of. Every game, every tournament, every early morning, and every late night you guys were there with not one complaint and always a smile on your face. I can stand here today knowing that I would not even be half as close to where I am today if it wasn’t for the both of you. My success is your success. I do not know where the next chapter of my life will take me, but I do know it will be bright because I have you two. Penmen baseball, it’s been one hell of a ride full of memories that will last a lifetime. I thank god for anyone I met along this crazy journey (teammates, coaches, personnel, families, etc) you are all my family for life ❤️ I am 100% a better man for having gone through the last 6 years of my life at SNHU being a part of this baseball family. Penkid."



What is Josh Goldstein looking for in his partner?

In an interview with Parade, Josh revealed the three traits that he definitely doesn't want in his partner. He said, "Not loyal, not trustworthy, and not a good person who doesn’t treat people right."  He also made it clear that his future partner needs to be someone who is nice to everyone around. Although loyalty seems to be very important for Josh, it looks like the 'Love Island' star has slipped up himself in the past. He revealed that he cheated on his girlfriend while he was in college and claims that he regretted it a lot and has changed since then. 

"I’ve only been in one serious relationship, and I was very young in college. One thing led to another and ultimately, I did cheat on her. There was a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes. I instantly regretted it. I went through a lot mentally because that’s not who I am. I felt terrible and let my guard down. I made a mistake, and I’m a completely changed person now," he shared.

Hopefully, Josh can find the girl of his dreams on 'Love Island'.

'Love Island' Season 3 is all set to premiere with a 90-minute episode on Wednesday, July 7 at 9:30pm ET/PT on CBS.
