Kem, 25, knows all-too-well how he and the other new Islanders must be feeling, having shot to fame on the 2017 series of the show.
Speaking on Capital Breakfast earlier today, he told hosts Rob Howard and Lauren Layfield how he felt about PE teacher Hugo.
He gushed: "Every school had that PE teacher that everyone fancied, I remember in school everyone loved the PE teacher, and that is this year.
"Hugo – what a name as well, Hugo is the best name in the world, don't you think?"
Asked if that was who his early favourite to win is, Kem went on: "I just think he's a cool guy."
He also said that viewers shouldn't judge the series by the launch night videos, insisting that every year Love Island pulls it out of the bag.
Kem explained: "My friends message me every year when it comes out saying: 'The cast isn't as good this year, Kem', and I say to them: 'You say this every year and it ends up being really good!'
"Everyone always judges it when they say all these cheesy things at the beginning, but when I went I said the same.
"In my audition tape I said I was 'spontaneous, cheeky, and sexy' – what is wrong with me??"
Hugo is also the first Love Island contestant to have a physical disability after being born with club foot.

He previously said that he considers himself “not a disabled person, but just a person who has a disability”.
He added: "I’m very lucky that I had very supportive parents growing up and they kind of got all my operations done at an early age, so to be honest I don’t really remember it that much.
"I now just walk with a little bit of extra swagger is how I like to describe it, as I wobble about sometimes without my shoes on. It doesn’t define me."
