‘Love Island’ is the popular British reality show, hosted by Caroline Flack. The series was launched in 2015 on ITV2 network. The show revolves around a group of contestants known as islanders, who live in a remotely located villa in Mallorca, and are constantly under surveillance. The islanders must couple up in order to successfully complete various challenges that are designed to test their physical and mental abilities. Through the course of the show, the islander can choose to either remain with the partner they initially chose, or switch partners. The winning couple (who successfully complete all challenges) win £50,000 ($62,554).
