Background

Ray Gantt was born in Hillside, New Jersey, to two loving parents, Raymond Gantt Sr and Zetta Gantt. He is an American reality T.V. star, aspiring dentist, promoter, and singer. Not much is known about his personal life outside the public eye, but it is stated that he studied biology and sociology and graduated in 2019. Also in 2019, Gantt got his start in the first season of “Love Island” in the United States, where he entered the show a few days in.

Once there, Gantt met fellow castmate Caro Viehweg, and they quickly became romantic. After some bad luck with votes, the couple only made it to third place — which is still very impressive! In 2020, the reality star released his first single, “Do You Love Me?,” which has been seen over 21,000 times on YouTube. In the same year, Gantt, along with his love-interest, Viehweg, began production on “The Amazing Race” season 33, which premiered in January 2022.

After his brief stint on “The Amazing Race” and his heartbreaking uncoupling from Caro Viehweg, Gantt announced in 2022 that he would star in the new season of “Ex On The Beach.” Who is he starring alongside? You guessed it; Viehweg. Gantt’s star is only just rising, and we are excited about what is next. In between his T.V. appearances, he has also been working with brands doing endorsements and just living his best life.
