Meet Taize, the Pilot Taking ‘Million Dollar Island’ to the Next Level

Million Dollar Island 2023 contestant Taize

Million Dollar Island is a new kid in the reality TV game, and it’s already got us hooked. We love how it stars 100 contestants. We stan how brutally it’s slashing this number down. We’re even here for the Million Dollar Island contestants who are left, including the likes of 29-year old Taize Taylor.

Million Dollar Island Cast: Meet Taize Taylor

Taize Taylor is a pilot from NSW, and an excellent one at that. Taize successfully graduated from the prestigious Qantas Group Pilot Academy, where he received the esteemed Qantas Group Award.

However, Taize has a rich and fulfilling life when he’s not on the grind. He enjoys vibing with people and has a playful sense of humor that draws people in. What’s more, he cherishes moments of solitude, embracing his own company.

On Million Dollar Island, Taize is ready to sledge injustices and fearlessly tell folks his thoughts. But he knows that this trait might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Taize’s Life Outside the Show

There’s no getting around it, Taize’s Instagram is mostly thirst traps. Whether he’s in the cockpit of a plane or barely wearing a towel, he’s displaying that spicy gym bod.

Yet, that’s not the only content on Taize’s Instagram. In July of last year, he posted about getting engaged to his partner, Nick Peters.

If Tazie wins Million Dollar Island, we’d bet his wedding goes off.

Taize’s Million Dollar Adventure

When getting his pilot’s licence, Taize accrued a significant amount of student debt. If he wins Million Dollar Island, this financial burden would be alleviated, and he could establish a solid foundation for his career.

Taize also wants to use this opportunity to prove his adaptability and demonstrate that he can excel in any environment. Whether he succeeds or flops at achieving said goal, however, is still up for debate.

Million Dollar Island airs at 7.30pm Mondays and Tuesdays, only on 7 and 7 Plus. Miss an episode? Catch up on 7 Plus.
