Who is Marco Donatelli from Love Island USA Season 5

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

Love Island USA is the hit dating series that is available to watch on Peacock from July 18th. 

In season five of this steamy reality series, you’ll see a bunch of sexy singletons heading to Fiji to try and 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. 

Who is Marco Donatelli from Love Island USA Season 5? 

Marco Donatelli is a 22-year-old American self-made social media celebrity who looks like he’s causing drama just from the trailer of Love Island on TikTok. In the video, Marco introduces himself to fans, calling himself a “flex offender,” – which hasn’t sat well. His cute smile and bulging muscles might not be enough to win audiences over after such an insensitive and crude comment. 

In the Love Island USA teaser, Marco declares, “Naked Marco is a very pretty sight,” — so we’re safe to assume he’ll be stripping off and showing off this season, but the biggest thing about him so far is his ego. 

Where is Marco Donatelli from?

Marco was born on the 27th of October 2000 in Youngstown, Ohio, United States. While he might call Ohio home, he is more accustomed to the hot beach lifestyle that Love Island USA can provide. 

Marco Donatelli has one older sister called Maria. Both were raised by their father, Mark, and their late mother, Maria Donatelli. Maria Donatelli sadly passed away in 2021 due to renal failure and liver disease caused by alcoholism.

What does Marco Donatelli do for work? 

He has an interesting career history, especially for the young age of twenty-two. After originally dreaming of becoming a professional football player, his dreams changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. This time was informative and influential on us all, and it steered Marco away from a career in professional sports. With his handsome looks and height, it’s no surprise he launched himself into the content creation and modeling industry.

Marco collaborated with his father, creating viral content on TikTok, and it didn’t take long for them to gain millions of followers on many social media platforms. This then led to many collaborations, allowing him to work with renowned photographers like Rock Day and secure opportunities with prominent brands. 

However, in 2022, in an interview with E! News, Marco is quoted to have said:  “I want to find my place among all other stars in the film industry. I think I have the edge because I know that if you want to be the best, you need to play the part — pun intended,” so keep an eye on your streaming platforms. He’ll be walking the red carpet soon. 

Fun Fact: Marco is a chiropractic student studying Pre-Physical Therapy at Florida Atlantic University.
