Watch the 'Love Island USA' season 5 trailer

Don't let the accent fool you—this is very much the trailer for Love Island USA season 5. Once more, the islanders-to-be are headed to Fiji to find love, but we just meet them in the "Love Island USA headquarters."

Who is hosting 'Love Island USA' season 5?

Modern Family's Sarah Hyland stepped in for Arielle Vandenberg during season 4, and she'll continue hosting duties for the new adventure.

Hyland revealed to People in 2022 that she was looking forward to helping each contestant on their journey.

“I’m really excited to get to know them in a more personal way than just a host figure," she told the publication. "I think it’s really important to be able to share and connect with other humans. And if I’m able to help in any way for people to open up more than they normally would, I am all there for that."

Who are the 'Love Island USA' season 5 contestants?

We've been introduced to a slew of young singles from across the USA looking for love. There are recent grads, nurses, and even a Jason Momoa lookalike! Things are definitely not going to be boring with these adventurous daters. 

Have a look at who's hitting the Fiji villa below!

What to expect from 'Love Island' USA season 5

The stakes are higher than before, according to the show's description. 

"Temptations will rise and drama will ensue as new 'bombshells' arrive throughout the season, forcing Islanders to decide if they want to remain with their current partners or recouple with someone new," the show's description reads. "Islanders will also be at the mercy of viewers at home who will vote to determine who gets another shot at love and who leaves the villa heartbroken and empty-handed."

Oh, and about that surprise Ariana Madix Love Island cameo? It's happening. (She'll be a surprise guest during week two.) Just like Margot Robbie, she's another famous face who's obsessed with Love Island. (Who doesn't appreciate the Barbie/Love Island crossover?!)

What to watch in the meantime

We have some time before the romantic pursuit begins, but if you're looking to fill your screen time with more drama, you're in luck. We'll tell you how to watch Love Island France, even if you're far removed from the City of Love (and though the season has wrapped). Plus, Love Island UK season 10 is currently underway, and it's the OG, so you have to tune in. 

So, which villa are you headed to? All of them? Same here!
