The American version of Love Island, a British romance and relationship reality series, hits US shores Tuesday, July 9, with a 90-minute premiere on CBS.

Airing weeknights at 8 pm ET through Wednesday August 7, the normally one-hour show brings together single “Islanders” in a villa in Fiji. Every few days, the participants must “couple-up.” Those who fail in this quest risk being kicked off the island. In addition to wooing partners, Islanders must also seduce viewers who ultimately vote on the one winning couple. Both romance and money are at stake.

Comedian and actress Arielle Vandenberg serves as host.
