Love Island: Ariana Madix replaces Sarah Hyland as host for season 6

Ariana Madix is moving to Fiji.

The Vanderpump Rules star, who rose to fame when her boyfriend Tom Sandoval cheated on her with one of her friend from the Bravo show, is set to host season 6 of Peacock’s Love Island.


She will be replacing the Modern Family star Sarah Hyland who hosted two seasons of the dating show.

Sarah joined the show for season 4 when it moved to Peacock from CBS. Arielle Vandenberg hosted the show since the format was adapted to U.S. back in 2019 and remained as a hostess for the first three seasons.

Love Island will be returning this summer. It is one of a number of iterations of the format, which originally began on British broadcaster ITV2. Peacock also recently aired Love Island: All Stars and has a spinoff Love Island Games as well as seasons of Love Island South Africa and Love Island Spain.
