LOVE Island is back for a second season, and a whole new collection of love hopefuls.
The show has decamped from its usual location in Fiji, in favour of a sanitized rooftop in Las Vegas, but the fun and games will be as familiar as ever.
Over the season, fans will get to know the occupants of Love Island – which is being filmed at The Cromwell Hotel in Sin City.
The contestants, the host and production crew have been isolated amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The contestants, known as islanders, usually live in Fiji totally isolated from the outside world and must be coupled up with another Islander in order to win.
The premise behind “coupling” is vague, as it can be for friendship, love, or survival.
Islanders and couples take part in games and challenges designed to test their physical and mental abilities, with the winners receiving special prizes afterward.
Zac Mirabelli and Elizabeth Weber were crowned the winners of season one and split the $100,000 prize.
The islanders are all young and beautiful and in their 20s, and introduced by CBS.
