She Had Her Passions But Didn't Expect the Show to Help Her Realize Them
About her time on Love Island: "I can't watch myself. I basically squirm," she said to the Independent. "I don't think you can prepare yourself for it. I honestly had no idea what was gonna happen. I completely went in there with the very naive approach….I had like a thousand followers on Instagram, but I wasn't an Instagram girl. I was just a normal girl working in the bar. I had no idea what was gonna happen. I didn't know whether I was gonna be in there for a week. I didn't know whether I was gonna be in there for that almost the whole time, like I was. But I feel like that was the essence of me cause that it was genuine. And I wasn't, I wasn't thinking of any other narrative while being in there, any like thoughts rather than just enjoying it and having fun. And I feel like that's really, really important for the contestants. And I feel like it's sad if they go in there with a different agenda. Cause obviously the show now can do so much for you, and be such a great stepping stone. Like, I've always had fashion, my makeup and my modeling; I've always absolutely loved it. So for me it was great becaus…I was talking to something I already wanted to be involved in. But I never thought going in there, but that that's what would happen. I literally just thought, oh, I like a good summer. That is literally what I thought."
She Was Able to Process Her Success During the Pandemic Downtime
"When COVID happened, obviously people were having to stay in their homes." She was able to work from there and felt we all were "able to process the past two years of our lives and as humans, I don't think we do stop and just chill for a sec. So I feel like it was a good thing for everyone. Cause I hadn't, the past two years and a half, and now things are going back to normal, events are happening again. It's much nicer to kind of enjoy the experience and be present in the moment rather than thinking, what's happening tomorrow? What's happening tomorrow? Because I feel like I'm a lot more steady now. I'm a lot more organized," she told the Independent.
She's Done Some Tough Workouts
Steel has done PRO.PT with celebrity trainer Yusef Bouattoura. The workouts are HIIT. "While not exactly new, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is emerging as an effective and more time-efficient alternative to traditional endurance-based exercise programs. HIIT programs include short bursts of high-intensity activity performed at maximal effort (90 percent VO2 max), separated by short periods of low-intensity work that allow partial recovery. A typical HIIT session might include a three-minute warmup, four to six repetitions of a 30-second sprint followed by a 60-second active recovery, and a three-minute cool-down," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Plays Tennis
Steel posted a photo of herself playing tennis with the caption: "Every season." To avoid injuries, "That means taking lessons with a licensed professional about how to, for example, serve, hit certain shots in a particular way with correct technique," Dr. Sanj Kakar, a Mayo Clinic orthopedic hand and wrist surgeon, tells the Mayo Clinic. "I think that's first and foremost. [Also,] having the correct equipment."
She Builds in Chill Time
"I get up at 11 if I can, honestly," she told On Demand Entertainment. "I am not a morning person at all, but I'm funny. Like I'll have days where I just wanna chill, which I've literally just got back into now because I never used to be able to have chill days. And at the moment now, I think it's really important to schedule chill days in, just for yourself, mentally, physically everything. I just think you need some time to just focus on yourself. Otherwise it can get a bit too much, but I do love working when I get into it: Boom, boom, boom, boom."
She Says She Can Be Calm, Despite What You May Think
"People wouldn't believe me, but I can be very calm. I'm very chilled. I'm very, just on a normal level, like when I'm chilling at home," she told On Demand Entertainment. "But I'm very, very reactive and I'm very impulsive and I'm very spontaneous. So when I'm put in situations or with people I can react and be spontaneous and be impulsive, I don't think everyone has that. Sometimes it's a good thing. Sometimes it's a bad thing." As for being a reality TV star, this personality trail works for her: "I think it's good because it gives drama, entertainment value, as we say."
