What is FBoy Island Australia?

Picture this: a stunning tropical island filled to the brim with attractive and eligible single blokes—24 of them, to be exact.

But here's the catch – while some are genuinely on a quest for that special someone, others proudly wear the f-boy badge, more interested in flings and scheming their way to the coveted prize money. It's a battle of hearts, minds, and tactics as three Australian women strive to spot the real contenders amidst the imposters.


The 10-episode reality series, hosted by the charismatic radio host and reality star Abbie Chatfield, will follow contestants Molly O'Halloran, Sophie Blackley, and Ziara Rae as they jump into the unpredictable world of dating, determined to unravel the mystery of who among the contenders are the genuine "nice guys" searching for love, and who are the cunning "f-boys" in it solely for the thrill and the cash prize.

With $100,000 up for grabs, the stakes are sky-high!

An Australian first

FBoy Island's roots can be traced back to its original creation by the genius mind of Reality TV producer Elan Gale (known for his work on The Bachelor) for HBO Max in the US.

Now, the Australian adaptation takes centre stage, following a similar format that promises a diverse cast embarking on an extraordinary journey to find love while deciphering who's in it for all the right reasons.

Prepare for a whirlwind of emotions as the show serves up a tantalising blend of drama, romance, and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.

Contestants will face a series of challenges and captivating dates, all in the pursuit of uncovering the true intentions of their fellow participants. It's a rollercoaster ride through the complexities of modern dating, where telling genuine connections from mere game-playing becomes a daunting task.
