Who is Leonardo Dionicio from Love Island USA Season 5

Who is Leonardo Dionicio from Love Island USA Season 5? We discuss a dating competitor from the popular reality series. 

Love Island USA is back with its 5th season on Peacock. The popular reality series first started in the United Kingdom and became increasingly popular amongst audiences.

Therefore it’s no surprise that there’s a version in the US that is just as popular! 

In this reality series, you’ll see ten sexy, sassy singletons heading to Fiji, hoping to find love in paradise. It’s not as easy as it sounds. If the contestants want to remain on the island, they’ll have to couple up. Anyone who doesn’t find a partner will have to go home alone. After challenges, love triangles, and drama, the last surviving couple will win $100,000. 

The series is hosted by Sarah Hyland (Modern Family) and narrated by fan-favorite Love Island U.K. announcer Iain Stirling.

Who is Leonardo from Love Island USA Season 5?

Leonardo is a 21-year-old salesman, but will audiences be interested in buying what he’s selling? He is a former competitive former Division I baseball player, so let’s hope he knows how to play a good game. 

Leonardo Dionicio is hoping to find love on Love Island USA Season 5, and judging by his social media, this shouldn’t be a too difficult task. He’s being described as being able to spot a red flag a mile away, and this is why he’s still single. This will make him cautious and calculating and might make it hard for him to trust.

He believes that many men his age rely on cheesy pickup lines to woo women, while he’s opting for serious eye contact, being funny, and using his sales charm to win the women over. 

Where is Leonardo Dionicio from?

Leonardo Dionicio is from West Hartford, Connecticut, and comes from a family who are deeply rooted in competitive sports. His older brother Danny Hussey played baseball at Umass-Amherst, and his twin sister Geemoneybagz is currently playing soccer for Yale. As Leonardo has only recently joined the spotlight, a lot of his personal life is still unknown, but we can see from socials that he is close with his siblings and that his family supports his Love Island journey. 

Fun fact: He is fluent in Spanish. Maybe this will help him seduce the girls in the villa. “I’m always going to meet your love language,” he says in the Season 5 teaser (via YouTube). Vamos Leonardo! 

What does Leonardo Dionicio do for work?

Leonardo has been working as a salesman, as well as playing Division I baseball. As a lot of his life is still kept private, we’re not sure what he’s selling.

However, he can now add reality TV stars to his list of accomplishments, and everyone knows once you’ve been on one of these reality dating shows, it opens doors to many more opportunities.  

What are Leonardo Dionicio’s socials? 

Whilst his social media game is weaker than his Love Island competitors, it’s clear that he wants to grow and connect with his followers. Leonardo can be found on Instagram at @leonardo_dionicio.
