Love Island 2023 has not delivered with its first bombshell.
Some viewers have already dubbed footballer Tom ‘the worst bombshell of all time’ after he made his villa entrance during Tuesday night’s show.
The girls in the villa were impressed with the hunk’s 6ft 5 height, but as the episode wore on, viewers were left pining for bombshells of series past.
Uh oh: Viewers have already dubbed footballer Tom ‘the worst bombshell of all time’ after he made his villa entrance during Tuesday night’s Love Island
One viral tweet summed up the feelings, pointing out the impact Italian Stallion Davide had during his bombshell entrance in the 2022 series.
Davide delivered iconic lines from the get-go and his fiery on/off romance with Ekin-Su led them to the £50k prize pot.
Viewers of the latest episode don’t have the same high hopes for Tom.

‘Tom might be worst bombshell of all time, sauceless and just coasting off being 6ft5. Davide was like 5ft6 and had the girls begging to be fed pasta,’ pointed out one tweeter.
Another declared: ‘Yeah Tom is boring. All that height for nothing.’
‘Bombshell isn’t bombshelling’ tweeted a third unimpressed watcher.
‘Tom is hardly a bombshell. Hes just shell’ agreed another.

Another viewer commented: ‘As lovely as I’m sure Tom probably is, how the hell is he this year’s bombshell partner stealer pls? The standards are dropping every year I swear.’
The hunky footballer, 23, was a late arrival to the South African abode on Monday, but he’s already ruffled a few feathers by kissing three girls during a dare challenge.
After Maya Jama announced his arrival in the villa during the debut show, there was plenty of anticipation among the islanders about his next move, especially since it was revealed that he’s get to steal one girl from the boys.

Tom certainly had an eventful start to his Love Island stint as he spent his first day pulling each girl for a chat.
Over at the fire pit Tom asked: ‘How are you guys in your couples?’ to which Tanya replied: ‘Everyone is still getting to know each other.’
Tom nodded in agreement as Tanya then asked: ‘How tall are you?’ to which he replies: ‘6’5, I like to be the little spoon though…’

Olivia Hawkins showed her interest in Tom as she gushed: ‘Oh my god, the height on Tom is very nice. Who doesn’t like a six foot five man?’
After a day of chatting to the girls, Tom had all the power as he chose stunning ring girl Olivia to couple up with, leaving farmer Will Young vulnerable.
Love Island continues on Wednesday night with the arrival of two new bombshells.
Reaction: However, despite Tom only being in the villa for a short time, fans at home were less than impressed with the new arrival, with some calling him ‘boring’
