Get Ready For ‘Love Island’ To Be Your New Summer Obsession

You’ve probably heard of the U.K. hit Love Island, but did you know that the first-ever North American version is coming to CTV five nights a week? If you didn’t, here’s everything you need to know to get ready for the hottest show of the summer.

Filled with many twists you won’t see coming, this show is more than just pretty people on the beach. Contestants (you can read all about them here) face all kinds of challenges in the pursuit of finding someone to couple up with, or they risk being sent home. They’re completely isolated from the outside world (in beautiful Fiji, might we add) and are only allowed to communicate with each other. They do have phones though, which give them all the gossip on who’s breaking up and making up.

The biggest twist? You get a say. That’s right, you, or anyone with the Love Island app are able to vote for your fave islanders to ensure their safety from elimination. In the end, it’s the viewers who decide which couple walks away with a large cash prize.

To top it off, the show is hosted by super fun Instagram star Arielle Vandenberg. The companion show, Love Island Aftersun, is hosted by etalk‘s Danielle Graham and The Social‘s Lainey Lui.

You don’t want to miss this—catch Love Island from Monday to Friday at 8:00 pm ET/PT on CTV, and the CTV App.
