Love Island is true organized chaos, a whirlwind of six traditionally hot people made to live in a beautiful villa for a summer, do insane challenges that are often handed down via text message and involve kissing, and have sex under blankets in the same room everyone sleeps in. Yes, the goal of the show is to make a partner out of a stranger, and if you're the last couple standing, you could win a shit ton of money (that is, if you both make the choice to share the earnings in the finale). It first started in the UK in 2015 and spread from there, picking up tons of fans from abroad when it started streaming on Hulu. Now, there are versions in America (that's admittedly still finding its footing and is way less horny than its very R-rated British cousin), Germany, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden -- that's how much people lap up the concept of people wearing bathing suits drinking out of branded water bottles coupling up and using localized slang (ie. banter, chat, craic, etc. in the UK). There's something about Love Island, whichever its nationality, that is utterly bingeable, a combination of the right personalities, its aesthetic that looks straight out of a PB Teen but designed for Instagram, and the constant exchange of gossip between housemates. Tragically, the original UK host Caroline Flack recently committed suicide, leading to a public outcry for the show to take the mental health of its entire cast more seriously, which, yes -- apparently the stars are often brutally harassed online. Still, the series an important cultural import that ushered in a new wave of reality TV.
