The original Love Island has become a runaway favorite of reality TV fans in the U.K., with each season garnering blockbuster ratings since its premiere in 2015.
The gleefully vapid show has now come to the U.S., where a group of single, 20-something hotties are put in a private villa in Fiji where they need to couple up or else they'll get kicked off the island. The guys and gals then try to stay together while competing in assorted challenges and facing public votes, and whoever makes it through wins $100,000. Got that?
Even though CBS’s Americanized version of the show has so far notched lower ratings than its UK counterpart, it has still introduced an impressive cast of attractive female contestants, so it's got that going for it.
