Here's how Arielle Vandenberg bagged role of 'Love Island' hostess
The 'glam reaper' of 'Love Island' aka Arielle Vandenberg has won everybody's hearts with her amazing hostessing skills. As the hostess of the popular dating show, Arielle is ever-ready to throw some curveballs at the islander by either announcing the addition of a new islander into the villa or the ever-dreaded recoupling and bonfire ceremony. The sight of this blonde bombshell fills the islanders with both excitement and dread.
While 'Love Island' definitely won't be the same without its endearingly awkward hostess Arielle and the witty narrator Matthew Hoffman, have you ever found yourself wondering how the blonde beauty managed to bag the job of the hostess of the popular dating show? Read on to know all about how Arielle became the hostess of 'Love Island'.
How did Arielle Vandenberg become the hostess of 'Love Island'?
Arielle revealed how she managed to bag the exciting role in CBS's hit dating show 'Love Island' in an interview with Parade. Arielle spoke bout her audition and how she knew about the popular dating show from its UK franchise. She said, "My first meeting for the show was talking and connecting with CBS and the people that were about to make Love Island US. I went on to do my audition, which was more of a screen test. It was such an exciting time. I knew of Love Island before I auditioned. So when I heard it was coming here, I was like, “Oh, yes!” And when I got the audition, I was like, “Oh, yes!”
So what did she have to do during the audition? "My audition was a lot of talking to the “contestants” and the camera. I was given lines that I would ultimately say on the show. I had to pretend I was talking dramatically, which was really funny. The tone you have to talk in when you’re doing a dramatic thing is so different; you have to go into a deeper and more serious register. They had to test me out and make sure I could be that dramatic."
We can't think of anybody else better suited for this role than Arielle. 'Love Island' features eleven hot 20-somethings who 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. The goal of the game is to remain coupled up until the end of the season, when the winning couple will receive a cash prize of $100,000 and possibly a new romantic prospect.
'Love Island' Season 3 is all set to premiere with a 90-minute episode on Wednesday, July 7 at 9:30 pm ET/PT.
