"I would say I'm fun, flirty and fiery. I think I'm good at giving advice, I'm a good person to talk to, I'm very honest. If I want the same guy, I'd do it but in a nice respectful way," the 19 year old added.

So far, ten contestants have been announced as the brand new Islanders that are set to be seen on the show as it kicks off for its eighth season on June 6.
