Love Island villa deeply divided over interpretations of Nietzsche’s Übermensch

Contestants on ITV’s hit show Love Island have clashed over one of the great philosophical questions – what Nietzsche really meant when he discussed the Übermensch.

The row erupted shortly after Francesca was fingered by Curtis in The Hideaway and some of the lads pondered whether he was in fact the perfect man.

“Some of these idiots think that he was only talking in abstract terms about just the betterment of ones self, like, aiming to be a more enlightened version of you,” Tommy Fury said.

“But everyone with half a brain cell understands that the Overman is literally an evolved version of a human being; a different biological animal and the next step in our ultimate goal of defeating nihilism.”

Rival factions soon began to form in the villa, with Molly-Mae Hague quickly becoming a concern for producers with her increasingly heated behaviour.

“These fucking idiots haven’t got the first clue about Nietzsche – it’s like they’ve just blagged a vague approximation of this subject from a Wikipedia entry and pieced an idea together in five minutes,” she said.

“Übermensch is not something you can become or simply the next step in our development, it is the ultimate end goal of man – perfection – which is ironic because Michael’s abs aren’t far off it to be fair.”
