HBO Max is looking for affection in its latest reality order – the zeitgeist-y named Fboy Island.
Humorist Nikki Glaser is hosting the 10-episode reality series, which comes from Elan Gale, former exec producer on The Bachelor, and Sam Dean, who was showrunner of Netflix’s Love Is Blind.
Made by Gale and Dean, the dating format follows three ladies who move to a tropical island where they’re joined by 24 men – 12 self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” looking for adoration and 12 self-proclaimed “FBoys,” there to vie for chilly, hard money (Ed note: Urban Dictionary defines a f*ck boy as someone who says “I’m bad at relationships” as if it’s an absolute truth).
The women will explore the dating pool along with the hope of finding a lasting love connection. By the finale, all will be uncovered – who is a Nice Guy, who is a FBoy and who the ladies eventually pick. Fboy Island is a social experiment that poses the age-old question: Can FBoys really change, or do Nice Guys consistently finish last?
Senior member, who has a overall deal with the streamer, is showrunner of the series, which recorded for this present year in the Cayman Islands and will make a big appearance this summer. It comes from STXalternative. Hurricane, Dean, Glaser, Jason Goldberg and Ben Bitonti exec produce.
“When I first got the call to be a part of a reality dating show called Fboy Island, I said yes immediately,” Glaser said. “Then I realized they weren’t asking me to be one of the girls looking for love. That is not a joke; it was embarrassing. But as a massive fan of this genre, hosting this show was a true dream. I look forward to hosting for the next 43 seasons. I knew going into it that a show created and produced by the people behind my two favorite shows – The Bachelor and Love Is Blind – was going to be insanely good, but this one exceeded my expectations. I already know what happens and I can’t wait to watch it every week.”
