Sa mère est israélienne. Il habite Londres. A 22 ans il est devenu une super star de téléréalité. Il passe très souvent ses vacances en Israël. Ses fans (de très nombreuses jeunes femmes de 16 ans) affirment qu’il n’est pas gay. Ce qui est certain : de nombreuses mamans juives veulent le marier avec leur fille!
LE PLUS. Jerusalem Post : « He has tousled, golden curls, rock-hard abs and a Hebrew name. And he’s a contestant on Love Island, the UK’s hugely popular reality dating series. Eyal Booker, 22, a model and former pop singer from London, has an Israeli mother and went to the JFS Jewish day school in London. Since last week he’s been appearing on the reality TV series that has once again captivated much of the nation. Love Island, back for its fourth season, officially became the ITV channel’s most-watched series ever when it returned to the airwaves on June 4, garnering more than 3 million viewers ».
According to The Sun, Booker is the first Jewish contestant to ever appear on the show. In the week he has been on the series so far, Booker hasn’t made too many controversial waves, and his chiseled good looks have earned him thousands of new fans. But, according to his family, he’s really just a nice Jewish boy from London. Booker has two older brothers, Ariel and Tal, and a younger sister, Oriane. In an interview with the Jewish Chronicle, Tal said that he’s certain Israel and Judaism will come up during Eyal’s hopefully eight weeks on the show.
“Our mum is Israeli and that will come through on the show at some point, I am sure,” Tal said. “Israel can often be controversial to mention, but Eyal is very connected to it… He loves Israel, and Jewish values are very important to him, so I am sure it will come up.”
Judging by his Instagram feed, Booker was last in Israel in August 2016, when he enjoyed a couple of weeks tanning on the beach, spending time in clubs, working out and even doing some modeling. In October 2015, Booker donned a kippa in Tel Aviv to celebrate his mother’s wedding.
