Dating is daunting enough, but Temptation Island season 4 just might discourage us from the process entirely. 

If you binged The Ultimatum, Netflix's latest reality sensation, you'll certainly want to put this bad boy on your radar. Consider Temptation Island The Ultimatum's much wilder older cousin. 

Both shows focus on couples at a crossroads rather than singles looking to find new romances. When confused parties are expected to mingle with eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, we don't need to tell you that chaos ensues. 

Get ready to cringe! Plenty of heartbreak, drama and NSFW moments are ahead.

Sure the accommodations are glamorous, but the situation between couples is anything but. 

For those who entered rocky terrain, can't quite figure out how to have the defining the relationship talk or are simply confused about the next step, Temptation Island is not a safe place to be.  

"[It's] like the seven years never existed," we hear one user state in the teaser trailer. Ouch!

What is the 'Temptation Island' premise?

So, what exactly happens on Temptation Island

Four confused couples enter the nail-biting experiment and are left with 24 singles dangling in front of their faces. Should they stay in their union...or tempt fate with a visitor on the island? 

Considering there are wild shenanigans—lingerie parties and hookups, to name but a few—we have a feeling couples are truly put through the wringer. 

Meet the 'Temptation Island' season 4 couples:

So, who's at a crossroads?

Ash and Hania have been dating for a year-and-a-half, whereas Gillian and Edgar have been together for four years, along with Iris and Luke. Meanwhile, Ashley and Lascelles have been together for a whopping seven years. Wowza. 

Have a look at their stories below.

How to watch 'Temptation Island' season 4:

The show is currently on USA Network and the fourth season kicked off on March 16. New episodes premiere at 10/9pm Central on Wednesdays.

If you do not have access to USA Network or are located out of the United States, you can still watch Temptation Island via a VPN. 

A VPN is a handy piece of software that allows you to browse anonymously, and to change your IP address so your mobile, computer, or laptop thinks it's in another location. That means you can watch your favorite show, film or event—even if you’re away from home.

Our favorite VPN service is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)—rated the best VPN (opens in new tab) in the world right now, by our colleagues at TechRadar.

Now that you've likely finished The Ultimatum reunion and need something to indulge in before Bachelor in Paradise season 8 this summer, give Temptation Island a go. But do proceed cautiously—the show is not for the faint of heart, even if you're only watching from home. 

For those who would prefer a happily-ever-after, might we suggest rewatching Bridgerton season 2? Sure there's drama in Regency, England, but it's not quite as wild as what you're getting on the island.
