The hottest, silliest dating competition is back on our television screens, with FBoy Island returning for its second season. Over the course of four weeks, three new women land in the Cayman Islands to search for love and a shot at $100,000. To earn both love and the money, they must also face the possibility of being completely manipulated by the dating world’s most hated group of people: FBoys.

26 men will fight to win the hearts of our three leading women, but only half of these contestants are truly seeking love. The rest are just FBoys looking to take the $100,000 grand prize for themselves. Hosted by the hilarious Nikki Glaser, the series takes viewers on an adventure of love, heartbreak, arguments, tears, sexual chemistry, sisterhood, and lots and lots of abs.

FBoy Island Season 2 has released its first three episodes on HBO Max, with Episodes 4-6 available on July 21, Episodes 7-8 available on July 28, and the final two episodes available on August 4.

Pop Crave had the chance to speak with the three women of Season 2’s FBoy Island – Louise, Mia, and Tamaris – about their journeys on the island, overcoming the fear of vulnerability, and what they’re most excited for fans to see this season.

Pop Crave: You can’t really do a show like this unless you’re a super confident person who’s willing to be vulnerable and open, which I think people will find so inspiring. What advice would you give to women and people in general who are trying to work on their vulnerability and confidence?

Louise: I think trying to feel comfortable with leaning into your emotions, understanding your body and what you’re feeling in every moment, and just leaning into that and realizing it’s okay to lean into your emotions. Right now, there’s that whole women empowerment thing, and that can also make women feel kind of weird being super emotional. They feel like they have to be powerful all the time, but I think it’s about realizing there are so many different emotions that you’re allowed to feel and leaning into all of those.

There are so many shows within the reality TV dating genre, but something about this series feels so unique and different. What would you say sets FBoy Island apart from the other shows in this genre?

I think this show is really about women empowerment, and it put us three into that position of power which is rare. To have that as a team, when you see The Bachelorette with one woman who’s dating all these guys, we have three and we’re working together as a team to figure out and navigate who are the FBoys and nice guys. I think that’s really rare, so I hope that it can set an example for women to work together when they’re dealing with shitty guys!

What I also love about this show is how it’s willing to embrace its ridiculousness and humor, and part of that comes from Nikki Glaser! She’s not just the host, but she’s also like your motherly FBoy therapist! What was it like to work with her?

She’s amazing! She’s like one of the girls but then also this great leader!

You get to go on so many amazing dates, and it made me really jealous. What was your favorite activity you got to do on a date?

I always wanted to go ziplining, so I think that was one of my favorites. Also, riding a camel because that was just hilarious. Everything was just really funny, so that was fun!

Who are some favorite music artists of yours, and what are some favorite songs or albums you love from them?

I love Doja Cat! I think she’s so playful and fun with her lyrics, and I love the way she bounces on the beat. I just think she’s amazing, so I really love listening to her. I also really love Kendrick’s new album, so I’ve been listening to that a lot.

Having the show release must be so exciting! What are you most looking forward to when the show drops on HBO Max?

Watching it! I want to see it! I’m so excited for that… [The men] probably talked so much shit, and I cannot wait to see it!

Pop Crave: You can’t really do a show like this unless you’re a super confident person who’s willing to be vulnerable and open, which I think people will find so inspiring. What advice would you give to women and people in general who are trying to work on their vulnerability and confidence?

Mia: My advice that I would give to women is to stay in tune with your emotions yourself, but also if you don’t express them, they can stay bottled up. That can make you explode on the inside and have panic attacks on TV [laughter]! Who knows who did that! Just make sure you take the time and think about yourself, but also give your emotions to somebody else because you never know what that person can do for you.

There are so many shows within the reality TV dating genre, but something about this series feels so unique and different. What would you say sets FBoy Island apart from the other shows in this genre?

I would definitely say our comedy aspect!

You get to go on so many amazing dates, and it made me really jealous. What was your favorite activity you got to do on a date?

I think I liked bungee jumping… That was fun! I got to see my date freak out a little bit, so that had to be my favorite date.

Who are some favorite music artists of yours, and what are some favorite songs or albums you love from them?

I listen to more trap music than anything! Pooh Shiesty and Migos, they’re my favorites. Cardi B is a very strong woman rapper right now. I love her to death, and then Megan Thee Stallion because it’s hot girl summer out here!

Having the show release must be so exciting! What are you most looking forward to when the show drops on HBO Max?

I think for me, it’s to see all the guys’ reactions. I want to actually see if they were telling us the truth or not! I can’t wait.

How do you think Season 2 of FBoy Island compares to Season 1?

We love Season 1. Thank you for paving the way for us! You guys taught us and the guys a lot of different things, but to be honest… Season 2 is filled with a lot more drama, a lot more sexual energy, and a lot more twists than I think Season 1 had in it. That’s just from me watching Season 1 as a fan and then somehow, someway ending up on the same show and then living through it. I think our connection with the three of us and the guys are completely different than Season 1, because we had friendships, relationships, and guys that we would go to just to talk. The three of us together were more like sisters than friends.

Pop Crave: You can’t really do a show like this unless you’re a super confident person who’s willing to be vulnerable and open, which I think people will find so inspiring. What advice would you give to women and people in general who are trying to work on their vulnerability and confidence?

Tamaris: I think for me, it’s being yourself 100% and not looking for the next person to follow. It’s about being a leader and making sure that you’re always an independent person that really doesn’t need anyone. You’re able to always suffice by yourself but always staying true to yourself, because you can end up turning down all these different lanes and stuff like that.

There are so many shows within the reality TV dating genre, but something about this series feels so unique and different. What would you say sets FBoy Island apart from the other shows in this genre?

I would say it’s having us three ladies. It’s typically the other way around where the guy is actually choosing the female and they’re eliminating the females, but we had each other and were such a team. You rarely have it where females are actually working together for a greater good and actually find, hopefully, love and a connection.

What I also love about this show is how it’s willing to embrace its ridiculousness and humor, and part of that comes from Nikki Glaser! She’s not just the host, but she’s also like your motherly FBoy therapist! What was it like to work with her?

She gave us great advice, especially off camera. She’s just a genuine human being. No matter what her status is, how she is to society, and what a celebrity she is, she’s just down to earth and wanted to see the best for us. If she saw any of us crying, she wants to be there, wants to hug you, and wants to make sure that you’re okay… She was definitely here for us.

Who are some favorite music artists of yours, and what are some favorite songs or albums you love from them?

I’m obsessed with Miguel. I know all of his albums and every single lyric. I’m also a very love-depressed girl all the time. When you’re in my car, you’re listening to love songs, and it’ll be like, “Girl, stop! Change the song!” I’ll always be like, “No! I want to listen to my love!” So that’s me!

Having the show release must be so exciting! What are you most looking forward to when the show drops on HBO Max?

I want to see the reaction of the FBoy Island fans! I want to let them see our journey and how we navigate through all of these FBoys and nice guys. I want to see their reactions, who they want us to be with, who they think that we’re going to be with, and who they think is a FBoy or a nice guy!

How do you think Season 2 of FBoy Island compares to Season 1?

It’s very raw and emotional. Just having each other [the women] throughout this journey, I don’t think anyone will have a stronger bond than what our bond is. It’s unbreakable, just having this experience alone. You’ll definitely see it when it comes out… There are so many twists, turns, drama, and excitement!
