Meet the Cast of CBS’s Love Island Season 1

Love Island Cast

The cast of CBS’s first season of Love Island has been revealed, and if first appearances are anything to go by, host Arielle Vandenberg’s prediction that “It’s going to be one hot summer” looks more than likely to come true. With its inaugural season premiering on July 9, CBS hopes to bring home some of the huge success the show has already seen internationally by following the same basic formula. Like its UK equivalent (which is already 5 seasons down and counting), the show takes a batch of 11 single men and women, all with either the looks of a model or the actual title of one, partners them up, locks them away in a stunning Fijian villa, and then sits back and watch the sparks fly. With the aim of the game being to remain a committed couple for the duration of the show, the new partnerships will be tested to the limit with the introduction of a series of games, challenges, and tempting newcomers to the island. To find out more about the cast, keep reading.

Arielle Vandenberg

Taking on hosting duties this season will be American actress and model, Arielle Vandenberg.

She’s also featured in numerous TV commercials for brands such as Progressive Auto Insurance, Mercedes-Benz, State Farm Insurance and Coca-Cola Zero. In 2013, meanwhile, she had the honor of starring in the music video to the Arctic Monkey’s single, R U Mine. After landing the Love Island gig, Vandenburg took to Instagram to share her excitement with her 1.2 million followers. “I feel so honoured to be a part of this amazing @cbstv family! WOW! I’m buzzing right now! I’ve waited my whole life for a moment like this! And it feels exactly as I imagined! PERFECT! Thank you thank you thank you @loveislandusa & @cbstv for choosing me to as your host! I LOVE LOVE!!! LET’S GOOOOOO!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!”
