Meet The ‘Love Island’ Season 2 Cast Before All The Drama Begins

Who will find love and take home the $100,000 prize?

One week before the new season of the reality series premieres, CBS announced the Love Island Season 2 cast, introducing a new cohort of singles who will attempt to find love and compete for a $100,000 cash prize. Eleven singles will be introduced as "Islanders" during the two-hour Season 2 premiere on August 24, including several personal trainers, a shopping channel model, a legal secretary, and an auditor. The Islanders have spent the past couple months virtually dating due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the new episodes will be filmed in-person in a closed "bubble" in a villa in Las Vegas, as per a press release.

Love Island USA is based on the British show of the same title, in which a group of "Islanders" is brought together in a secluded location, and must attempt to win each other over and impress audiences at home. In order to continue in the competition, each cast member must be coupled with another contestant, whether out of "love, friendship, or survival," and every few days uncoupled Islanders will be at risk of being dumped from the island. The real drama, however, comes when new contestants arrive on the Island, disturbing alliances and romances, raising the stakes throughout the season. Additionally, contestants will have to win over viewers, who, according to a press release, will "shape events on screen and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner." Audiences will also be able to participate in crafting the show and creating drama via the Love Island app.
