The debut episode of Love Island Games had fans buzzing with excitement, but not long into the show, viewers had already started to grumble about the format.
Instead of the usual quick coupling up we see on Love Island, the contestants all entered the villa in Fiji and had a chat. But fans were quick to moan about the lengthy introductions on social media.
“These intros should not be this damn long,” one viewer complained, sharing a photo of someone tugging at their own hair. Another added: “This intro mad long, it’s just not that serious. How long does it take to introduce people we already know??”
After the introductions, the Islanders met host Maya Jama, who has been presenting the UK version of Love Island for the past few seasons.
Then, before the coupling, the Islanders took part in a spy-themed challenge which decided the order in which the girls would choose who they wanted to couple up with.
The Love Island villa was buzzing with excitement as host Maya Jama announced a shocking twist, as she revealed that two all-star bombshells would be entering the villa on day one and would have to kiss the two Islanders they found most attractive, while the current Islanders were blindfolded.
The bombshells, Megan Barton Hanson from the UK and Johnny Middlebrooks from the US, made their grand entrance.
Megan chose to kiss Callum and Steph, leaving their partners Liberty and Jess in suspense, while Johnny kissed Imani and Cely, his ex-girlfriend from Love Island USA season 2.
Despite some grumbles, fans are hooked on this new version of Love Island. One viewer tweeted: “These producers is wild for #LoveIslandGames.”
While another predicted: “This season is about to be cutthroat, I just know it. The women are ready to NOT tolerate male stupidity to the love island degree this time around, and I’m so ready. And also, everyone is clearly going for the money and self promo, so again, carnage incoming.”
And while a number of iconic UK ex-islanders have entered the spin-off, it’s unclear just when UK viewers will be able to watch the show, which is currently airing on Peacock in the US.
