Adapted from the successful UK series, the CBS reality dating show Love Island (USA) recently finished its third season. Based on a group of Islanders looking for love, viewers keep up with the several episodes a week to watch the contestants’ journey. When the prospects enter the villa, some are trying to find their soulmates while others are only there for the potential $100,000 grand prize for the winning pair.
Fans tune in to watch their favorite contestants confess their feelings for others, fall in love, get caught up in love triangles, or leave the island empty-handed throughout the 40-day experience. After first premiering in 2019, the USA adaptation has remained popular and recently completed its third season. Where can you stream all three seasons of the reality dating series and the UK version?
What is ‘Love Island’ about?
The reality dating show revolves around several Islanders who live together in a Hawaii-based villa. Under constant surveillance, the singles get to know each other with the goal of coupling up with someone else of the opposite sex.
After initially forming a pair based on first impressions, the Islanders survive by remaining partnered. At each re-coupling ceremony, they can stay with their person or choose another eligible contestant.
Whoever is left single is dumped from the island. The contestants get to know each other by participating in games and share a bed with their partners.
However, they can talk to anyone, including new faces who enter the villa every week. By the end of the season, the viewers vote for their favorite couple, and one picks an envelope that contains $100,000. They then have the option of taking the money or splitting it with their partner.
