Temptation Island Set for Australia


Australia’s Channel Seven is rebooting the hit reality format Temptation Island, which originally aired on the network back in 2002.

The recent return of Temptation Island in the U.S. after 15 years saw a 92-percent above slot average for the 18-to-49 female demo on USA Network. The series was recommissioned after just three episodes.

A Banijay Group/Screentime Australia format, the reboot will be produced by Seven Studios.

Seven’s director of network programming, Angus Ross, said: “From risque parties to romantic adventures, Temptation Island is the ultimate test of faithfulness.

“It’s a fascinating exploration of the familiar vs. the fantasy relationship. Most of us have an ideal mate in mind and Temptation Island actually allows participants to meet that person and compare it with their present relationship. It then asks the question, will they stay or stray?”
