HBO Max drops trailer for new dating show ‘FBoy Island’

Imagine being stuck on an island with “FBoys.”

That’s the premise of the new HBO Max show “FBoy Island,” hosted by comedian and actress Nikki Glaser, 37. The network released the official trailer for the upcoming reality dating series Monday.

“FBoy Island” will follow three women — Nakia Renee, CJ Franco and Sarah Emig — who are joined by 24 men on an island. In the mix of the two dozen men, there are 12 “nice guys” looking for love and 12 self-proclaimed “FBoys” competing for a cash prize. Meanwhile, the three women are there to find a lasting love connection — or at least they hope to.

The trio will attempt to answer the age-old question: “Can FBoys truly reform or do nice guys always finish last?” By the episode 10 finale, it will be revealed to the audience and the women which men are the nice guys and which were the FBoys all along.

With 27 singles on a tropical island in the Cayman Islands, there are bound to be tears, steamy kisses, fights, drama and lies over the course of the 10 episodes as the men compete for either love or money.

“FBoy Island” will debut July 29 with the first three episodes, followed by three additional episodes Aug. 5. The show will be capped off by the final four episodes Aug. 12.
