Latest Love Island gossip, spoilers and news
When ‘Big Brother’ meets ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ you get the popular reality dating show ’Love Island’.
After becoming a smashing success in Britain with celebrity fans like Adele, Paris Hilton and Tom Holland openly declaring their love for the reality show 'Love Island', it was only a matter of time before it made its way into American homes. After enjoying two successful seasons, the popular reality dating show is all set to make a comeback with Season 3. Eleven hot 20-somethings are put up in a villa in Hawaii, where they are constantly under surveillance. These singles, or Islanders as they are referred to, have to couple up and stay coupled up throughout the show and occasionally complete various challenges assigned to them.
'Love Island' has all the ingredients needed for a successful reality show — a bunch of youngsters, drama, romance, fights, and a healthy dose of competition. To shake things up, new Islanders will be regularly added to the show. The current Islanders can ditch their existing partners for the new Islanders. The goal of the game is to remain coupled up until the end of the season, the winning couple will receive a cash prize of $100,000 and possibly a new romantic prospect. The addition of Casa Amor has only made things more interesting. Mid-season, the couples are split up and sent to Casa Amor, where the Islanders are introduced to a host of new singles. Casa Amor isn't just the ultimate test of loyalty for the couples, but also a great source of drama and entertainment for fans.
The network describes the show as: "A sizzling summer series based on the international smash hit and cultural phenomenon. The matchmaking begins as a group of single “Islanders” come together in a stunning villa in Las Vegas, ready to embark on a summer of dating, romance, and ultimately, relationships. Every few days the Islanders pair up and those who are not coupled are at risk of being dumped from the island. Islanders are on the lookout for romance, but the road to love doesn’t always run smoothly. Challenges abound with intriguing new Islander arrivals and dramatic twists as friendships and relationships form. In addition to choosing their partners wisely, Islanders must also win the hearts of viewers who have the opportunity to shape events on screen and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize."
The endearing Arielle Vandenberg will be returning as the hostess of the show for her third season. Matthew Hoffman, the witty narrator whose commentary provides us some much-needed comic respite from all the drama, will also be making a comeback on season 3. So, keep your calendars free to watch hot youngsters fall in and out of love at the speed of light against the picturesque backdrop of Hawaiian beaches.
