Put a group of flirty twenty-somethings in a beachside villa together and what you get is Love Island Australia! The Channel 9 reality TV show is back in 2022 with its fourth season, where the contestants couple up and try to stay together while resisting the temptations of new cast members called bombshells.
If previous seasons are anything to go by, there'll be plenty of partner swapping, steamy action and love, of course, to satisfy our shameless need for escapist television.
Who Is The Host?
Irish presenter Eoghan McDermott, who has gained a large fan following for his voiceovers on the reality TV show, will once again be the narrator. You can follow Eoghan McDermott on Instagram here.
Who Is The Cast?
Former Married At First Sight star Al Perkins decides to give reality TV love another go when he enters the Love Island villa on Wednesday, November 9.
Vakoo — 27 (Model from Sydney, NSW)
Claudia — 23 ('Sicilian Stunner' from Adelaide, SA)
"Nobody has said no to me - ever."
Stella — 24 ('Hopeless Romantic' from Brisbane, QLD)
"I think the experience will be amazing. I always have best people’s interest at heart and want to do right and show people appreciation and love."
Holly — 25 ('Brash Brit' from Brisbane, QLD)
"I want to go in there and find love, but I’m not there to be people’s best friends and walked over either. If you don’t love me then that’s your fault, I’m not going to change myself."
"I’m small but I pack a punch. A lion doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep."
Layla — 20 ('Flirty Dancer' from Melbourne, VIC)
"I don’t believe in girl code. If there’s someone I have a connection with, what am I supposed to do?"
Phoebe — 24 ('Footy Fangirl' from Sydney, NSW)
"I usually go for the athletes, a very stereotypical type of athlete - AFL players. I’m banning myself, maybe I’ll try a different sport."
Maddy — 26 (HR Advisor from Perth, WA)
Maddy is no stranger to the attention after competing in the Miss Universe finals in WA.
Tak — 22 ('Tik Tok Rapper' from Brisbane, QLD)
"Girls look at me and think he’s dangerous. And girls love bad boys."
Austen — 22 ('Latino Lover' from Sydney, NSW)
"I’m a sucker for romance. I love romantic movies. If you didn’t cry during The Notebook then there is something wrong with you."
Mitchell — 25 ('Kiwi Playboy' from Sydney, NSW)
"I’m looking for a girl who doesn’t take life too seriously, someone who can take the piss."
Jordan — 25 ('Mullet King' from Gold Coast, QLD)
"I get along with guys really well - I love my bros. But at the same time, there’s nothing better than chasing tail."
Conor — 26 ('Unreal Estate Agent' from Sydney, NSW)
"When I walk into a room, the heads turn. Look at me."
Andre — 26 ('Sexy Psychologist' from Perth, WA)
"It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. I wouldn’t mind meeting a girl I can settle down and make a future with, you never know. It’s going to be a crazy journey."
Callum — 24 (Welsh Pool Boy) from Brisbane, QLD)
"I can’t wait - meet some great birds and also work on my tan. It’s a win, win."

What Is The Air Date?
Love Island Australia Season 4 premiered on Monday, October 31 at 6pm 9Now and is also available each evening on 9Go!. New episodes will be dropping nightly from Monday to Thursday.
Where Is It Filmed?
Season 4 of Love Island Australia will be filmed in Mallorca, Spain. Production returns to the sunny European hot spot after Season 1 of the Aussie series was filmed there in 2018. Season 2 was filmed closer to home in neighbouring Fiji, while Season 3 was shot in Byron Bay when international travel was limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What Is The Prize?
The final prize up for grabs is $50,000 and the winner is actually determined by the public through a voting system. Ideally, couples will want to stay together (and impress viewers) in order to make it to the end and split the cash. Here's hoping they're doing it just as much for love as for the money.
When Is The Finale?
The Love Island Australia 2022 finale takes place on Tuesday, December 20, with the final episode available to stream on 9Now that day.
