Sarah Hyland is hosting the show for the second season in a row. The Modern Family actress took over hosting duties from Arielle Vandenberg starting with season 4. Sarah will be joined by voice commentator Iain Stirling, who also does the narration for the British version of the show.
Before season 4, Sarah said on TODAY with Jenna and Hoda that she immediately accepted the offer to host the show. “Very quick yes. I love Love Island of all of the forms of it. Everywhere. All of the countries. So it was definitely a quick yes for me,” she said.
Love Island Season 5 Cast
The cast for Love Island USA season 5 hasn’t officially been announced yet. This season will welcome around 30 contestants who film in a villa in Fiji, which was also the shooting location for season 1. The other three seasons took place in Las Vegas, Hawaii, and Santa Barbara, California. Season 4 was won by Timmy Pandolfi and Zeta Morrison, who broke up after filming ended.
Love Island Season 5 Trailer
Peacock released the season 5 trailer on June 21. Iain Stirling narrates the trailer and says season 5 is going to be “the biggest and best season ever.” Iain teases “more red hot romance,” “a lot less clothes,” and “big” challenges in the new season.
Peacock said in the official press release for season 5 that the new islanders “will couple up to face brand new heart-racing challenges and bigger twists and turns than ever before. Temptations will rise and drama will ensue as new ‘bombshells’ arrive throughout the season, forcing Islanders to decide if they want to remain with their current partners or recouple with someone new. Islanders will also be at the mercy of viewers at home who will vote to determine who gets another shot at love and who leaves the villa heartbroken and empty-handed.”
