Plot Synopsis

Based on the UK series of the same name, LOVE ISLAND is a reality series that follows a group of single "Islanders" who come together in a Fijian Villa, ready to embark on a summer of dating, romance, and ultimately, relationships. Every few days the Islanders pair up and those who are not coupled are at risk of being dumped from the island. Islanders are on the lookout for romance, but the road to love doesn't always run smoothly. Challenges abound with intriguing new Islander arrivals and dramatic twists as 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 and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize. Hosted by Arielle Vandenberg, LOVE ISLAND begins with these 11 Islanders (Additional Islanders will be introduced and announced as the season progresses.):
