Who is the Love Island US host?

Who is the Love Island US host? The Love Island US season 5 host is Sarah Hyland, who is best known for starring as Haley Dunphy in Modern Family. “I got a text!!!! And it’s a juicy one! I can’t wait to be your new host of @loveislandusa 😍,” Hyland announced in an Instagram post in 2022 before the premiere of Love Island US season 4. Love Island US seasons 1, 2 and 3 were hosted by model Arielle Vandenberg. Vandenberg was replaced by Hyland for Love Island US season 4.

Who is the Love Island US narrator?

Who is the Love Island US narrator? The Love Island US season 5 host is Iain Stirling, who has also hosted Love Island UK since season 1 in 2015. Love Island US seasons 1, 2 and 3 were narrated by comedian Matthew Hoffman, but Hoffman was replaced by Stirling for Love Island US season 4.

In an interview with The Arizona Central, Stirling explained how narrating the U.S. version of Love Island is different from the U.K. “I think the hardest thing will be the language,” he said. “I don’t even know what you call it if someone mugs someone off. I don’t even know what you’d say. What do you call that in America when a boy is mugging you off?” He continued, “(Phrases) like ‘mugged off’ weren’t a thing before “Love Island.” So hopefully America will get to invent, sort of, their own vernacular and come up with our own little phrases and make it feel unique to them, do you know what I mean? I would love to get an American (version of) … mugged off, et cetera. So we’ll see how it goes.

Though the slang is different, Stirling also confirmed that he’s up-to-date on American references—for the most part. “I think — and I’m sure Americans do know this — but literally, like, half of our news feed is American news, American politics. If you go to the politics section of the BBC website, half of it will be U.S. politics,” he said. “Culturally, I think, we’re sort of all right. All the TV shows, I sort of get. The sports, I don’t understand. I don’t get that. Basketball is cool. But why is soccer not the best sport? It’s mad; it’s the best game. It’s so good.”

He also told The Arizona Central about what it’s like to narrate Love Island US and UK at the same time. “It’s a bit wild, and I’m very fortunate because the people at Peacock are sort of, like, very aware of how full-on it is, and they’ve done everything to make it possible that I can do this and sort of do things like, you know, sleep and see my family and eat, things like that. Everything’s in LA for the American show, apart from the writing team,” he said.

“We’ve basically got two huts next to each other, and me and Mark (Busk-Cowley) will write the British one. And then the second we finish recording that, we go into the American room — I was going to say office, but that makes it sound too good — and go inside the American box. We’ll help those guys write what they’ve written so far and sort of let them know things we would and wouldn’t say. And also we learn stuff, like Americans don’t know what grafting is! I found this out today.”

Where is Love Island US filmed?

Love Island US season 5 returns to Fiji where the first season was set. The previous season was filmed in California. Love Island US season 3 was filmed in Ninole, Hawaii, while season 2 was filmed in quarantine at The Cromwell in Las Vegas.
