You remember Temptation Island, right? It's the bonkers reality show that aired on Fox from 2001 to 2003, where several couples decided to test their relationships by living on a beach with a bunch of seductive singles. Totally sensible decision. Well, it's back, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on USA Network, with a whole new set of couples and singles, not to mention the requisite amount of wild drama.
In her own words, Allie explains why she's joined the fray, how she comes to terms with breaking up relationships and why she believes that *most* of her costars are there for the right reasons.
At the age of 26, I can resentfully say I hate the way my generation dates. Swiping left and right has never been to my liking, and I used to wish there was a new way to date. However, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would end up in Hawaii, dating four confused boyfriends with hall passes. How did I end up there?
One of the main differences this time around is that most of the singles entered the process with good intentions, truly looking for love. And the couples are genuinely at a crossroads, seeking answers.
I was apprehensive because I am not one to break up anyone’s relationships while pursuing my own love interests. However, the show is different this time around.
Watching the exciting reveal of the singles in last night's premiere brought back all the memories, even the adrenaline rush. Nothing ever fully prepares you to present yourself—in your tiniest outfit—to four couples entering an extreme social-dating experiment. Despite all the reservations and nerves, when offered the opportunity to hang out with host Mark L. Walberg in a mansion in Hawaii, and a chance to find love, it is all well worth it … especially if one of the girlfriends finds you incredibly funny.
It is difficult to not accidentally reveal any of the show's outcomes, so I cannot say much, but what I can say is that I think those who tune in to the show will quickly become emotionally invested in not only the couples, but I hope us singles as well. We all continue to be revealed as the season progresses and limits are pushed. Viewers can expect many plot twists, lots of alcohol and incredible dates in paradise. Stay tuned for all the tropical twists!
