Arielle Vandenberg to Host CBS’ ‘Love Island’

The Wrap Thursday, 20 June 2019
Arielle Vandenberg to Host CBS’ ‘Love Island’Arielle Vandenberg is playing matchmaker this summer.

The actress/comedian has been set as the host of CBS’ “Love Island.” She will preside over the dating show, a U.S. version of the British reality dating sensation, which debuts with a special 90-minute premiere on July 9 and continues with one-hour episodes every weeknight until August 7.

Per CBS, “Love Island” begins as a group of single “Islanders” come together in a stunning villa in Fiji, ready to embark on a summer of love, friendships and ultimately, relationships. Every few days the Islanders must couple-up – those who fail to find a partner to couple-up with risk being dumped from the island. Islanders are on the lookout for romance, but the road to love doesn’t always run smoothly. Challenges abound with new Islander arrivals and dramatic twists as friendships and relationships form. In addition to choosing their partners wisely, Islanders must also win the hearts of viewers, who have the opportunity to shape events on screen and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize.

The cast of Islanders will be announced shortly, according to the network.

“Watching ‘Love Island’ is like watching your favorite romantic comedy five nights a week with your best friends…and Arielle would be the friend bringing the popcorn,” Sharon Vuong, CBS’ senior vice president of alternative programming, said. “Aside from being a huge fan of the genre, she’s a gifted performer with an impressive resume across multiple mediums who has a genuine and unique connection with all of her fans. We couldn’t be more thrilled that she’s joining us on this wild ride this summer.”

“As a huge fan of the show, I can’t tell you how excited I am to be hosting ‘Love Island’ this summer. I’m here for it all… the love, the relationships, the re-coupling… bring it on,” Vandenberg added. “I feel so honored to be at the head of the table watching it all go down!”
