FOX has announced that the third edition of its long-mothballed "Temptation Island" reality series will premiere Thursday, August 28 at 9-10 PM ET/PT. Television personality Mark Walberg returns to host the third installment of the one-hour series that chronicles the relationships of four couples seeking to challenge the strength of their love and trust on "Temptation Island."

The four couples embarking on this journey this time around are:

Anthony, a sales manager, and Stephanie, a hairstylist/model, from Chicago, IL. Dating three years.
Eric, a caterer, and Kristin, a student, from Farmville, VA. Dating three and one half years.
Michael, a bartender/model, and Melissa, a promoter/model/former Miss New York, from Long Island, NY. Dating two years.
Jason, a massage therapist, and Kara, a receptionist, from Las Vegas, NV. Dating one year.

In the tropical Caribbean paradise of the Bay Islands off the Central American Coast, these four couples from across the United States are joined in their island adventure by singles, 14 male and 14 female. Early on, the couples are separated and forbidden from speaking to one another until the final day of their stay, giving the fantasy singles an opportunity to spend time with each member of the couples.

During the series, each partner will have the opportunity to choose dream dates from the pool of 28 eligible singles and jet off on a series of romantic rendezvous throughout the island and on the mainland. During their stay, the couples are seeking answers to questions about themselves and their partners, and to find out what they think they want is actually what they do want. New loves will spark, some loves will rekindle, bonds will be tested and hearts may be broken -- all in the name of TEMPTATION.
