Model Joel is the first replacement for the Boys, and is raring to prove himself. "We should win because we are doing it for man’s honour. It goes back to the Alpha male thing – we are the leader, the strong ones and we need to do it for the men," he tells us.
Despite being physically fit, Joel says it's his personality that will take him through to the end. "I get along with everybody and people warm to me very quickly so I think people will side with me," he reveals, adding: "I’m cheeky, I push the boundaries but I will make you laugh and I’ve got a heart of gold."
When it comes to romance, the 28-year-old says he's not going to force anything. "I’m happy to see what happens with anybody," he says, adding: "I’d like to get to know all the Girls, see if anything develops and if it does, I’ll roll with it. I’m not going in with any expectations."
Joel tells us he's typically attracted to "a tall, leggy, blonde girl", but it's not just about looks, because "personality is a massive thing as well".
In terms of what he won't be impressed by, Joel can't handle snoring, telling us: "If I don’t sleep, I’ll be groggy and irritable."
"The type of girl that I would struggle with is someone who is pretentious and argumentative," he reveals.
And what about his Team? "As far as the lads are concerned, someone who is too brash and in your face."
When asked what he's looking forward to the most, Joel responds: "The biggest appeal for me is the unknown."
"I’m excited for all the challenges, I’m excited to meet people, I’m excited for the sun. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and it’s going to be amazing."
