Matt's presence on Instagram is growing like wildfire, and he now has close to 1 million followers. In addition, Arielle and Matt have created a podcast together, called "Riled Up," in which the couple have spontaneous, off-the-cuff conversations about their lives.

LOVE AND QUARANTINE

RETURN TO "LOVE ISLAND"
