Ryan Reid has made quite a splash during his short time on Love Island Australia.
The first episode of the reality dating TV show aired earlier this week and the bloke didn’t waste any time in showing off his Little Black Book.
The 25-year-old tradie from the New South Wales Central Coast made the bold claim that he’s slept with around 500 women in his time.
It didn’t take long for people to question the allegation on social media.
One person wrote: “Slept with 500 women and can’t get a serious [girlfriend]. These guys are always so self impressed. I slept with 500 girls! Clearly you’re not good enough to keep one interested would be my guess.”
A different viewer said: “Ryan needs to show us the excel spreadsheet that keeps track of these 500 women. We need proof.”
Some people even started doing the math to see whether his bold claim actually stacks up.
A user on Twitter suggested: “So wait if Ryan has had sex with 500 women, and he was sexually active from the age 16, that would be a new person every 6.5 days since then.”
Another added: “Ryan on @LoveIsland states he’s slept with over 500 women. Let’s do the math. He’s 25 so let’s say he started at 17, (500/7)=71.5 per year or 1.4 women per week every week for 364 weeks. C’mon Ryan…get your hand off it!”
He claimed that he managed to rack up such a high body count because of his extensive travelling across the globe.
People would happily admit to having an overseas trip romance or two, but many viewers were turned off by the idea of that many sexual partners for a 25-year-old.
Ryan appeared to be cozying up with Ari Kumar early on.
He admitted that blondes are usually more his type, but he wanted to go with someone who was a bit different. Sadly for him, it seems like the web developer wasn’t the biggest fan of his 500 women claim.
“Five hundred girls? Are you kidding? God, it was so humiliating,” she said.
