CBS Reveals Details of Love Island Participants

Love Island is ready to return this month and here is the list of the hot singles who will be looking for love this season! It is set to launch next Monday, August 24 and new episodes will air nightly.

Ahead of the debut, CBS has revealed that 11 single men and women will date and align to stay in the game. Their names and other relevant details have been shared.

1. When is the premiere?

The romantic reality series will kick off with a two-hour premiere on Monday, August 24, 8:00-10:00 PM, and air nightly. The schedule will also include a Saturday Episode, “Love Island: More to Love,” 8:00-10:00 PM, featuring the best moments of the week, exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage.

You can download the “Love Island” App on iOS or Android smartphones to influence the matchmaking.

Before the new season comes out, MTV2 is airing a two-day marathon of season one’s 22 Episodes on August 22 and August 23.

2. Where is the island located?

This time around, due to the COVID-10 pandemic, the “Islanders” are competing in a villa in Las Vegas instead of an actual island.

Host Arielle Vandenberg and narrator Matthew Hoffman will return to help the Islanders find love and romance this summer. After months spent in isolation and virtual dating, the Islanders will finally have the opportunity to date and get to know each other IRL (in real life). They will be shooting in Las Vegas sequestered in a “bubble” at a stunning villa on top of Ceasars Entertainment’s boutique hotel, The Cromwell.

4. What is Love Island?

Love Island is the sizzling summer series based on the international smash hit and cultural phenomenon. The matchmaking show begins after a group of “Islanders” come together in a Las Vegas villa to embark on a summer of dating, romance and relationships. Every few days the Islanders pair up, and those who are not coupled are at risk of being dumped from the island.

Challenges abound on the road to love with intriguing new Islander arrivals and dramatic twists as new 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.

Ultimately one lucky couple is crowned the winner, who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize.
