This season, in ‘Love Island’, we have 11 new islanders, ranging from personal trainers to students, sales managers, and go-go dancers. The first episode will introduce us to this fresh batch of eligible singles as they compete for each other’s hearts and their place on the island. First up, we have Kaitlynn Anderson from Lapeer, Michigan, with a career in promotions. We then meet Mackenzie Dipman (a student from Scottsdale, Arizona), Tre Forte (a personal trainer from Boca Raton, Florida), James McCool (also a personal trainer from Winchester, Virginia), Johnny Middlebrooks (another student from Chesapeake, Virginia), and Justine Ndiba (a go-go dancer from Rockaway, New Jersey)
Rounding up the batch of islanders is Carrington Rodriguez (a sales manager from Salt Lake City, Utah), Connor Trott (an auditor from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), Moira Tumas (a model from Brielle, New Jersey), Cely Vazquez (a legal secretary from Sacramento, California), and Jeremiah White (a store sales associate from De Kalb, Mississippi). Episode 1 also marks the return of Arielle Vandenberg as the host, accompanied by narrator Matthew Hoffman.
Season 2 will be set, in all its entirety at The Cromwell Hotel in Las Vegas. The socially-distanced season will follow the participants as they stick to significant safety protocols while participating in Hideaway dates and recouplings. As reported by CBS in its press release: “All Las Vegas staff and crew working on the production and all cast participating will be within quarantined ‘bubbles’ where they will undergo isolation before production begins and be tested prior to beginning work, and the cast will be tested prior to their participation.”
