Love Island's Season 2 initial cast has been announced by CBS.
The 11 new Islanders will be searching to find their perfect love matches in a sequestered Las Vegas villa designed to be a "bubble" amid the coronavirus pandemic when Season 2 of Love Island premieres with a two-hour episode on Monday, August 24 at 8PM ET/PT.
The Islanders include a shopping channel model, a billing coordinator and go-go dancer, an auditor and two personal trainers, and they all range in age from 22 to 28.
Love Island's second season will air nightly and include a Saturday episode from 8-10PM ET/PT entitled Love Island: More to Love, which will feature memorable moments from a week's worth of episodes as well as exclusive interviews with cast members and never-before-seen footage.
The Islanders will film the new season at a villa on top of Caesars Entertainment's boutique hotel, The Cromwell, in Las Vegas. The cast members will have the opportunity to date and get to know one another in-person after spending months in isolation and virtual dating.
Love Island's format is a bit of a cross between Big Brother, Temptation Island, Bachelor in Paradise, and Paradise Hotel.
CBS' American adaption of the U.K.'s Love Island -- which airs six night a week overseas -- aired its first season last summer and features single Islanders trying to choose romantic partners while also winning the heart of home viewers, who have the opportunity to shape events that unfold on the show.
- Justine Ndiba, a 27-year-old billing coordinator and go-go dancer from Rockaway, NJ.
Justine is a Pisces. Her ideal partner is tall, as she spends 80 percent of her time in heels. He also must also be humble and respectful.
- Carrington Rodriguez, a 22-year-old sales manager from Salt Lake City, UT.
Carrington is a Leo. If he could write his own dating profile, it would be: "If dating was a sport, I have been a free agent for a while. Dare to get to know me, and you will see I am smart, genuine, nice and sexy at the right times."
- Connor Trott, a 23-year-old auditor from Pittsburgh, PA.
Connor is a Cancer. He's brainy, loves to sing karaoke, and has been working on his dance moves in quarantine.
- Moira Tumas, a 28-year-old shopping channel model from Brielle, NJ.
