Summer is heating up and you know what that means: it’s time to return to Love Island. The new season of Love Island USA premieres this week, kicking off six weeks of steamy reality romance that you can stream from the comfort of your couch (with the AC blasting next to you). Season 6 sees a group of sexy singles jet off to the villa in Fiji, where they'll look to couple up and win hearts both on and off the island to compete for $100,000. Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix is stepping in as the host for Season 6 to help guide the audience through what is sure to be plenty of drama, and of course, some dramatically good looks.

Love Island USA is a spinoff of the smash hit UK reality show. The main difference — beyond hosts, contestants and the amount of prize money the winning couple is awarded — is which accents you’d like to hear as contestants get their chat on around the bonfire at the villa.

In the US, you will eventually be able to stream Love Island UK episodes. But the new season of Love Island isn't set to drop on Hulu until a full week after its UK premiere, so you'll have to find a way to avoid spoilers. Hulu's most basic, ad-supported tier will get you access to plenty of other great reality shows, including The Kardashians, The Golden Bachelor, Bachelor in Paradise and more.
