I am sure we all know what Love Island is from the name itself and the fact that it has had five seasons on Hulu and a sixth season which was recently released. A standard introduction is still necessary to have a clearer picture of what the show is actually about.
Love Island is a British dating reality television series. Leandie du Randt, an actress, hosts the sixth season. The series is all about finding true love. Essentially, a group of men and women participate in several tasks with a partner, and they keep switching until they feel they have met their true love. Sounds truly ideal, doesn’t it?
The first five seasons were taped in the summer, and the show is synonymous with bikinis and Stirling and the announcement of “I’ve got a text!” But this season left everyone falling more in love with the show. Why? Because this is the show’s first winter edition. It aired on January 12, 2020, and the finale on February 23, 2020.
A new setting brings many new elements, and you should not miss out on watching it, particularly for these reasons. A completely unique location is seen in South Africa, leading this season to be called “Love Island South Africa. The contestants can be seen living in a wealthy neighborhood, Eagles Nest in Cape Town. The luxurious villa is found to be in the hills of a valley in the Constantia mountain range. A new host is also seen, putting the cherry on the top of experiencing many new elements this season. She is doing an exceptional job, and it is refreshing to watch her.
Feelings and drama go hand in hand in this season as well. But this season’s cast has surprised the fans with some of the choices of their members. There’s already been controversy about the majority of the cast being white while being based in South Africa.
Then, one of the women members had dated Lewis Capaldi and claimed to be the inspiration behind one of his songs. Another contestant, Ollie, allegedly hunts endangered species. This gave way to social media outrage. But before anything else transpired, Ollie quit Love Island on Day 4 to go reunite with his ex-girlfriend, “the love of my life.”
The series has gone off to a promising start, and everyone can sense it will be a rollercoaster ride for the other episodes.
These are a few reasons you would need to be engrossed and stay up to date with this series and watch the drama go down.
