Heartbreak Island Disruptor, Ben

Age: 26

Occupation: Personal Trainer

Location: West Auckland 

26-year-old Ben is single and ready to mingle!

The personal trainer can work his way around a gym, but how will he do navigating his way around the girls on the island?

Ben is looking for a girl that has a sense of humour, good chat and a “quality booty”, but will he find her?

Are you looking for love coming into the show?

I’ve been single for about a year and although I’m not coming into the show specifically looking for anything serious, there might be someone I click with. 

Describe yourself in three words...

Spontaneous but rational. 

What's the most surprising thing about you?

I may not look like a handyman but I am masterful at setting up Kmart homeware kits, as long as an Allen key is provided. 

Describe your ideal date...

I’m thinking an overseas location…an Italian dinner, a bottle of red wine and good company. Failing that, Netflix and Chill is a tried and tested method. 

Describe your ideal partner and what qualities they'd have...

A good sense of humour is key! And quality chat to go with a quality booty. I love a girl who knows how to dress well too. I’ve always gone for brunettes, but at the moment I’m going through a blonde stage. 


I can’t resist a girl that’s fit and looks after her physical health. I’m a butt guy as well, so I certainly appreciate it if they’ve been working hard in the squat rack. 


Girls that are pretentious. Sassiness isn’t attractive either if it’s not tongue-in-cheek. It’s a major turn-off for me when a girl thinks she’s hot sh*t!

Who is your celebrity crush?

These days it’s all about Instagram crushes. There’s probably a few too many to list.
