A Recap Of What Happened In Love Island USA Season 3
Before watching the premiere of Love Island USA season 4, it’s best to refresh the memory with the previous season’s winners. Season 3 aired from July 7 to August 15, 2021, with 29 episodes. At the end of the 40 days, 28-year-old Korey Gandy from Virginia Beach, Virginia, and 28-year-old Olivia Kaiser from Anchorage, Alaska, were the winning couple. Like other previous season winners, Gandy (who took the money envelope) chose to share the $100,000 with Kaiser. However, Gandy and Korey broke up after the show ended.
Love Island USA Season 4 Host And Narrator
There are lots of big changes in Love Island USA season 4. First, the show’s host, Arielle Vandenberg, who had hosted the show since season 1, had not return as host for season 4. Vandenberg was replaced by Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland.
There were changes to the voice-over narrator. Matthew Hoffman, who has also narrated the show since its inception, did not return in season 4. However, he was replaced by the Scottish comedian, Iain Stirling, who narrates the original British version of Love Island. Anyone who followed the original version knows Stirling is undoubtedly an asset.
Love Island USA Season 4 Filming Location
Although season 3 was filmed in a villa on a real island in Nīnole, Hawaii, Love Island USA season 4 was not be filmed on an Island. The season’s villa is located in Santa Barbara, California. It’ll be the second time Love Island USA will not be filmed on an actual island. In season 2, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, filming was moved from Fiji to The Cromwell, a casino hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
Production And Where To Watch Love Island USA Season 4
The biggest change on Love Island USA season 4 is the production and network. All of the show’s first 3 seasons were aired on CBS. The show was then acquired by NBC, who picked it up for an additional 2 seasons. As such, Love Island USA season 4 aired exclusively in the United States on NBC’s streaming platform Peacock.
This is where things got more entertaining for the show’s audience. Many uncensored clips from previous seasons were never aired because of censorship on CBS. Although Love Island USA season 3 raunchier scenes were made available on Paramount+, viewers now have unhindered access to all contents with the show now airing on Peacock. After the season 4 premiere episode, episodes were released daily on Peacook until the season’s finale.
There’s also a change for the show’s Canadian audiences. In the past, Love Island USA was simulcasted on CBS and CTV. However, the show will only be available on CTV apps and websites, as well as Bell Media’s Crave streaming channels. For what it’s worth, viewers got more steamy challenges and romances.
Love Island USA Season 4 Islanders/Contestants
Continuing with the format and number of Islanders in season 3, Love Island USA season 4 featured 34 Islanders. History will also be made as season 4 will feature the show’s first competing set of siblings. Season 4 will also see a former contestant (Mackenzie Dipman) return to find love, money, or both.
