Temptation Island is back after an 18-year hiatus from the limelight and bringing the drama like you’ve never seen before.

The series follows four “dating couples at a most vulnerable time in their relationship, where each will decide whether to commit to a lifetime together — or ultimately give in to the temptation. Together, the couples travel to the tropical paradise of Maui, Hawaii, where they join 24 sexy single men and women anxiously awaiting to find ‘the one.'”

Mark L. Walberg, who hosted the original series that premiered in 2001 on Fox, is back as emcee for the show’s return on USA Network, and he stopped by the TV Insider offices to chat about the “controversial” series.

“People see a promo and assume the couples are married… and that’s not the case. These are young, single people who have been dating the same person for many years and are stagnant, and they have problems,” he explained.

The host also teased that the couples struggle and are tempted, but ultimately find the answers to their relationship questions.
