PHILIPPINES, JULY 26, 2021 – HBO GO is kickstarting its repertoire of reality programs with HBO Max’s brand-new ten-episode reality dating series Fboy Island, premiering in Asia with three episodes on August 1 exclusively on HBO GO. New episodes will premiere same time as the U.S. with subsequent 3 episodes on August 5 and the final 4 episodes on August 12.
Hosted by hit comedian and actress Nikki Glaser (“The Nikki Glaser Podcast,” nationwide comedy tour “One Night with Nikki Glaser”), the series follows three women as they move to a tropical island where they are joined by 24 men – 12 self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” looking for love, and 12 self-proclaimed “FBoys,” there to compete for cold, hard cash. The women will navigate the dating pool together with the hope of finding a lasting love connection. By the finale, all will be revealed – who is a Nice Guy, who is an FBoy, and who do the women ultimately choose. Fboy Island is a social experiment that asks the age-old question: Can FBoys truly reform or do Nice Guys always finish last?
Nikki Glaser said, “When I first got the call to be a part of a reality dating show called Fboy Island, I said yes immediately. Then I realised they weren’t asking me to be one of the girls looking for love. That is not a joke; it was embarrassing. But as a massive fan of this genre, hosting this show was a true dream. I look forward to hosting for the next 43 seasons. I knew going into it that a show created and produced by the people behind my two favourite shows (“The Bachelor” & “Love Is Blind”) was going to be insanely good, but this one exceeded my expectations. I already know what happens and I can’t wait to watch it every week.”
Fboy Island is produced by STX alternative, filmed earlier this year in the Cayman Islands. The series concept was created by Elan Gale (“The Bachelor” franchise), who is executive producing for The Year Of Elan Productions alongside Jason Goldberg for STXalternative, Ben Bitonti, Nikki Glaser and showrunner Sam Dean.
