Love Island Has Revealed Its Season 3 Cast

If you're a fan of the sexy happenings on CBS's reality dating show "Love Island," you're probably plenty excited about the third season of the American version of the show, which is set for a July 7 debut after "Big Brother." Now there's even more reason to get hyped, because CBS has just revealed the names of the 12 good-looking singles who will mix and mingle in Hawaii as part of the reality competition.

In case you don't know the show, it involves a group of contestants living in isolation under video surveillance, who must couple together in order to remain in the game. They undergo challenges, ceremonies and other events, and are subject to viewer votes during the course of the season as well. Of course, it's not all work — there's still lots of time for parties, lounging by the pool, and relationship drama

When looking for cast members, the show has some pretty specific qualities in mind, as host Arielle Vandenberg told Us Weekly. "Personality is very, very, very key for this show. I think that if you have a good personality and you like to have fun and you're open and you're just being really yourself — that is that's really what makes a good Islander," Vandenberg said. "I think that's what casting looks for too. I mean, obviously, it helps, like, these people think got six-packs. but I've noticed that every single person that comes in here has such an awesome personality. They're good people. They're fun people. And they're open to playing."

So, who's in the mix this time? Read on to find out.
