Romance is about to blossom in the tropics this summer.
CBS has revealed the initial cast of its sexy new reality series Love Island. These 11 original Islanders will be having fun in the sun and searching for the one.
Love Island is hosted by comedian Arielle Vandenberg and is an American adaptation of the British sensation of the same name. These strangers will have to couple up in order to stay at the show's Fijian villa and attempt to win over the hearts of audiences at home in the hopes of being crowned the winning couple at the end of the summer. Many more Islanders will be joining throughout the season; these are just the people who will be there on day one.
Click through the gallery below to meet all 11 of the first Love Island cast members and learn a little something about each of them, from who their celebrity crushes are, to the habit that's most likely to drive them away from a potential partner, to what they're really looking for in a love match.
Love Island will debut on CBS and CBS All Access with a special 90-minute premiere episode on Tuesday, July 9 at 8/7c and will air new one-hour episodes every weeknight through Wednesday, August 7 at 8/7c.
