Who is ‘Temptation Island’ star Kristian Barbarich?

Kristian has made quite the splash as one of the top singles in Season 5 of Temptation Island. He hails from New Zealand and has made an impressive name for himself as an entrepreneur and a model. Go figure, right?

However, when it comes to his dating life, Kristian has consistently shied away from commitment. “He’s been single for two years but jokes that his house is a revolving door of women,” Kristian’s Temptation Island bio states.

So, what does the rising reality star do when he’s not playing the field?

‘Temptation Island’ single Kristian Barbarich founded a sunglasses company with another reality star.

While Temptation Island features no shortage of high-powered career types, Kristian sets himself apart by operating his own business. In 2018, the reality star created Kensngtn, a New Zealand-based sunglasses company.

However, he hasn’t relished his success alone.

According to the brand’s website, Too Hot to Handle star Harry Jowsey is a Kensngtn co-founder. “We spent months perfecting a product that gives every wearer the gift of confidence and self-love,” the reality personality revealed. “I’m beyond stoked to finally share it with you all!”

Overseeing Kensngtn alongside Harry isn’t the only way Kristian makes a living.

The Temptation Island single is signed with Verge Agency, “one of the world's leading talent management agencies.” On Instagram, the reality star frequently shares photos from various shoots, modeling for brands such as F45 Training, Heineken, Slick Gorilla, and more.

Additionally, Kristian is seemingly in his X-rated influencer era — just like his fellow Temptation Island co-star, Makayla Halstead. The entrepreneur is an Onlyfans creator, offering everything from custom VIP content to Zoom calls to unlimited chats.

Not only that, but Kristian is also a successful social media influencer, garnering over three million likes on TikTok and 112 thousand followers on Instagram.

What does that mean for his chances of finding love on Temptation Island? He could very well have the rizz to make that happen. Provided, of course, that he's willing to give up that revolving door of women.

Temptation Island airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on USA Network.
