Temptation Island Reboot Is Back For Season 2

Did you guys watch Season 1 of the Temptation Island reboot?  If you didn’t (or, if you did, and your brain just doesn’t have the room to store the details of yet another reality tv dating show), here’s how the show works:  the producers put four couples on “Temptation Island.”   The couples are separated and given lots of alcohol and very little clothes.  The producers then throw a bunch of hot, single people at the couples to see if they will stay together or “give into temptation.”  Spoiler alert:  they pretty much always give into temptation.

There is some sort of competition and/or voting component, so couples get eliminated during the season.  The rules of elimination are a little unclear… I’m pretty sure the producers just make the rules up as they go.  At the end of the season, one couple is left standing.  That couple decides whether to leave together, alone, or with one of the singles.  Last year’s “winning couple” was divided – she wanted to leave together, he left with one of the singles.

People reported that this train wreck of a show (and I mean that in the best possible way, obvi) is back for Season 2 beginning in October on USA Network.  I’m already clearing space on my DVR.

The four devoted couples are:

Ashley Howland (25) and Casey Starchak (26)

According to the trailer, Ashley H. and Casey have “set ground rules” for their time on the show, such as “no kissing, no cuddling, and no sex.”  How many of those “ground rules” do you think they break within the first 15 minutes of the show?  The over/under is “all of the ground rules.”

Ashley Goldson (30) and Rick Fleur (32)

Ashley G. says that she and Rick went on the show so Rick can “prove he is not a cheater.”  Something tells me Ashley G. isn’t going to get the proof she is looking for.

Katie Griffith (34) and David Benavidez (28)

Y’all, this is legitimately one of the most genetically blessed couples I have ever seen.  I hope they make it because their kids would be gorgeous.

Estonica Veira (30) and Gavin Rocker (26)

A guy named “Gavin Rocker” has two career options: (1) reality tv star or (2) stripper.  That’s it.  According to people, Gavin Rocker’s “cheating past” is tough on his relationship with Estonica.  Probably the best way to fix that is for him to be put in a situation where he is basically contractually obligated to cheat.

Ugh.  Why would anyone subject themselves to this disaster?

Well, according to the People article, the four couples show up to Temptation Island for Instagram followers to “decide whether to commit to a lifetime together.”  Look, I’m no relationship expert, but if a guy tells me he can’t decide whether or not to commit unless 12 hot singles hit on him in bikinis, I’m pretty sure he’s not marriage material.

Good luck to all the couples!  (JK! I hope they crash and burn for entertainment purposes!)
