Love Island USA sparks viewer complaints after premiere

While Love Island here in the UK is getting fans talking about new bombshells, shocking Harry Potter confessions and shady comments – as it should be – the launch of Love Island USA had viewers riled up for an altogether different reason.

As the series premiered with 11 fresh-faced contestants entering the swanky new Love Island USA villa in Fiji ready for a summer of falling in love and stealing each others’ partners, viewers couldn’t help but point out the one thing that was quite literally dampening spirits.

It just would not. Stop.

Raining.

Whereas the UK’s version of Love Island is filmed in Majorca, Spain, Love Island USA has opted to send its Islanders to the South Pacific island nation of Fiji, which is known for its rainy tropical climate as much as its picture-perfect beaches.

See, we Brits always knew that Majorca was a supreme holiday destination, but it’s nice to see the rest of the world figure it out too.

“We already have something we’ve never seen on UK Love Island. Rain,” one viewer noted, while another summed it up by saying: “I knew Fiji was going to be a bad location for #LoveIslandUSA, all that rain is going to really ruin the outside parties and sun bathing.

Luckily, the rain didn’t stop the Islanders from getting up to their usual antics as the series has already delivered some serious drama in the few days it’s been on air, from one contestant going after another’s man (already) to two more Islanders romantically bonding over rollercoasters.

Meanwhile, over in sunny Spain, Amy Hart has praised Love Island’s aftercare following her decision to leave the villa after her split with Curtis Pritchard.

“I used to be a bit scared of therapy and since going in the villa I love it,” she said. “They gave me tools to deal with it.

They were on call for 24 hours.

“I was in a very horrible place over the last week.

I’m kidding myself thinking that I can watch Curtis cracking on with Maura [Higgins]. It would be self-sabotage.

It’s not nice. I have to put myself and my sanity first.

Love Island airs at 9pm on ITV2, and you can catch up on the show via ITV Hub.
