Million Dollar Island has only just begun, but it moves at a breakneck pace. In just one week, we’ve already said farewell to multiple contestants. Hosted by Ant MiddletonMillion Dollar Island has twists and turns galore. With so many new faces, it’s time to get to know the players who make up the Million Dollar Island cast.

Million Dollar Island Cast: Meet Corey Ryan

Corey Ryan is a 35-year-old P.E. teacher from New South Wales. Known for his kind-hearted nature and infectious sense of humour, Corey is a true family man. He cherishes his wife and their two adorable little girls, and considers his children to be his greatest accomplishment. With his charismatic personality, he has a remarkable ability to forge connections with people from all walks of life.

Corey’s journey began when he was adopted into a warm and caring family. While he has never met his biological parents, he holds nothing but cherished memories and immense love for his adoptive parents and siblings. Their unwavering support has shaped him into the person he is today.

As a sports enthusiast, Corey’s passion aligns perfectly with his profession. He’s all about Rugby League, and rides for the Newcastle Knights. Sports have always been an integral part of his life, and he’s passionate about encouraging others to lead active and healthy lifestyles.

Beyond his love for sports, Corey is also deeply spiritual. Corey finds guidance in the Chinese Zodiac, and is an Earth Dragon. He believes that the Chinese Zodiac offers valuable insights into one’s personality, and this knowledge enables Corey to navigate interpersonal relationships with a keen understanding and adaptability.

Corey’s Life Outside the Show

Corey doesn’t have a massive presence on social media, but from the snaps he’s shared, it’s clear to see that family is his number one priority.

He loves a proud dad pic, and in 2020, he posted a few throwback images from his wedding to wife Katie to celebrate their five year anniversary.

Corey Ryan’s Million Dollar Adventure

While Corey eagerly embraces the challenges that lie ahead in his new island adventure, he can’t help but feel a tinge of sadness at the thought of being separated from his beloved family.

If he emerges victorious, Corey has ambitious plans to establish a resilience camp in the coastal region where he resides. Through this initiative, Corey’s aim would be to empower others and equip them with the necessary tools to overcome adversity. His ultimate goal, however, is to secure a bright future for his precious children.

Will Corey come out on top, though? Or will he get the chop? Only time will tell.
