Love Island places a group of contestants (aka the islanders), in isolation from the outside world but in a villa, with constant video surveillance. In order to “survive,” each of the islanders must be coupled up – whether it is for love, friendship or money – as the overall winning couple will receive £50,000. Any islander who remains single after the coupling is eliminated and ejected from the island. The series is hosted by Caroline Flack.
The first-ever U.S. version recently wrapped its run on CBS and CTV. Canadians got their first taste at Love Island when Hayu dropped the third and fourth U.K. seasons last October.
