New Host Ariana Madix Unveils Luxurious Villa for ‘Love Island USA’ Season 6

New host Ariana Madix takes us on a tour of the luxurious Fijian villa. Ariana Madix is taking over as the host for Season Six of “Love Island USA” on Peacock. “Love Island USA” Season Six is almost here, which means it’s time to welcome the new host and take a tour of the updated villa. For the upcoming season, which premieres June 11 on Peacock, “Vanderpump Rules” star Ariana Madix is taking over as the host. She’ll help the 10 original islanders get acquainted with the luxurious Fijian villa where they’ll, hopefully, live all summer long. Ahead of the premiere, Madix stopped by the villa a few days early for a tour, with the help of the “Love Island” franchise’s beloved narrator, comedian Iain Stirling. She also shared her “type of paper” and revealed her favorite room in the villa. Viewers will watch the Islanders move into the villa during the premiere and meet Madix for the first time. Madix previously appeared on the show in Season Five as a guest and also stopped by for “Love Island Games” last year. Now, she is inheriting the hosting duties from actor Sarah Hyland who led the show for Seasons Four and Five. TODAY.com has exclusive pictures of the all new, custom-built, two-story villa where some islanders, like Season Five winners Hannah Wright and Marco Donatelli, might find love. Over 50 locals worked with production designer Richard Jensen to renovate an existing Fijian property and turn it into a stylish home fit for the islanders. This year, the “Love Island USA” contestants’ view will be of the Mamanuca group of islands. Season Six islanders will get to know each other all summer long in the two-story villa. Islanders will pull up to the 50,000 square foot property by boat. They’ll then enter the oceanfront villa which features two pools, including one with seating, 19 miles of fairy lights and four miles of neon lights. Peacock reveals this villa marks the first time worldwide that the team has redesigned the Beach Hut confessional. There’s also a separate hot tub hidden in the special Hideaway section, which only a few lucky couples will be able to enjoy. If they don’t want to take a dip in the pool, islanders can spend their days battling it out in a game of ping pong or relaxing in the lounge area. The villa also has additional seating on a swing sofa located above white sand that resembles the Fijian beaches, an ideal spot for a private chat. Inside, the ladies can get ready for the day or a themed party at night in the updated dressing room area. Fans of the show know that sometimes the contestants get caught in a brief rain storm. This year, they can wait out the island’s temperamental weather in one of the indoor lounges.
