BINGE today announced that hit reality series FBOY Island Australia, hosted by podcaster and reality TV star Abbie Chatfield, will be returning for a second season in 2024.
The reality series follows three Australian women as they navigate the dating pool to uncover who are the “Nice Guys” looking for love and who are the “FBoys” only there to play the game and take home the cash prize.
Season one had Australia talking and was BINGE’s biggest reality premiere to date. The season finale saw 26-year-old occupational therapist Molly O’Halloran and 21-year-old model Ziara Rae both leave the show having formed a genuine connection with their winning love interest. Both couples are still in committed long-term relationships.
Abbie Chatfield said: “I am thrilled to be playing FBOY detective once again and returning to FBOY Island for another season.”
“FBOY Island Australia flips traditional dating formats on its head and amongst all of jokes, laughter and questionable behaviour it’s a show that challenges gender dynamics and encourages men to be accountable for their bad behaviour.”
Alison Hurbert-Burns, Executive Director BINGE and Commissioning & Content Foxtel Group said: “The response to season one of FBOY Island Australia was incredible and we can’t wait to take the second season to a whole new level.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome back Abbie Chatfield as the host of FBOY Island Australia. Her sense of humour and fresh take on hosting made for fun television and there is no better person to help our three leading ladies navigate the modern dating world.”
Casting for season two has now commenced and BINGE invites single women and men across Australia to apply for their chance to take part by heading to fboyislandcasting.com.au.
