If you're a reality TV fan, then you are going to LOVE Love Island! Chances are you have already seen the UK version of the show on Hulu (which is hilarious and steamy, as well as a wonderful snapshot of British humor for the record)! At last, the show is FINALLY coming to the USA on July 9th! You can catch all the drama unfold on CBS.
The premise of the show is as follows: 11 single men and women referred to as "Islanders" pair up based on their immediate physical attractions to each other. Upon getting to know one another, they choose whether to stay together or re-couple with others. As the show continues, more Islanders are brought to the island; they try to convince the existing contestants to leave their current coupling and stray to them instead. Given that single Islanders are eliminated, the goal is to remain part of a couple. The final couple takes home a SWEET cash prize.
So, who can you expect to see grace the show this summer?
