Fboy summer is coming soon. Another season of HBO Max’s reality dating series Boy’s Island is on the horizon.
Season 1, which premiered in July 2021 and ended the following month, followed three women – JC Franco, Nakia Renee and Sarah Emi — as they tried to tell 12 self-proclaimed “fboys” from 12 “good guys.” The group of “bad boys” came on the show for a chance to win $100,000, while the “good boys” were sincerely looking for love.
At the end of the season, CJ chose Jared Evans, a “nice guy”, and they split the $100,000 prize. However, Nakia and Sarah’s fboy radar wasn’t as accurate and they picked the wrong boys. Jared Motley and Garrett Morosky, respectively. Garrett opted to keep the full $100,000 prize rather than pursue a relationship with Sarah, while Jared proved people can change by offering to split the cash prize with Nakia. The couple continued to date for a time after the show ended, but then broke up.
“Things haven’t worked out between him and me. We’re kind of going in two different directions in terms of, like, what we want,” Nakia explained in a video shared via Reddit in September 2021. “C “It was a real relationship. It wasn’t just for the camera. Like every other real relationship he’s tried, I tried, and it just didn’t work out.”
Boy’s Island was created by the former Bachelor producer Elk Mange who explained at length how he came up with the idea for the show’s premise.
“Working on dating shows for years and loving them, I didn’t know what I was missing. I wanted to do something a little new and different. When I spoke with friends of mine, the conversations I ‘they had on the guys they were dating tended to be around a specific thing of men who ghost them,’ Gale explained to The Hollywood Reporter in July 2021. “Obviously it goes both ways. But very often they were men who said a lot of things, made a lot of promises and then disappeared. I’ve heard the term “love bombing” a lot. And I’ve heard the word “f—kboy” a lot. I felt there was a new opportunity. »
Actor Nikki Glaser hosts Boy’s Island and helps set the playful tone of the show. In an August 2021 interview with men’s healththe Nikki and Sara live alum gave his take on the real difference between good guys and fools.
“I think the real difference between an fboy and a nice guy is not a guy who likes to have a lot of sex versus a guy who only wants to have sex with one woman,” Glaser said. . “The difference is a guy who likes to have lots of sex and lies to get it, and the guy who doesn’t lie.”
Boy’s Island will soon make its way overseas. In April 2022, HBO Max announced that the Spanish, Swedish, Danish and Dutch versions of the series had been greenlit. “These commissions represent our ambition to serve local audiences, grow our roster and attract new audiences to HBO Max, while of course maintaining this unique approach to quality,” Annelies Sitvastresponsible for HBO’s original unscripted productions, said in a statement to Variety.
