It is a show that sums up everything wrong with the west. It's filled with narcissistic airheads spending all their time trying to breed like rabbits. I do not understand why even intelligent people seem to enjoy this crap.

It corrupts the morals of the youth by promoting drugs alcohol and illegal sex so should be banned.

its really not as bad as you make it seem, im guessing you havent watched it. honestly its boring and innocent in ways, despite the sex, and its entertainment at the end of the day.

You still on TSR? I remember you from back in the day, good man one of the best trolls.

Nothing wrong with Love Island being popular, use it as an opportunity to grind while your competition's glued to the TV.

Doesn't exactly promote drugs considering all the contestants have to pass a drug test before appearing on the show

People like it for the same reason anyone likes anything, because it's entertaining or funny or they can relate to it. It's trashy TV, no one can deny that, but it's easy viewing and enables people to switch off after a day at work etc. I think assuming people who watch it are stupid is a huge generalisation and holds no basis in reality.

Its a stupid show for sure, but it is a reflection of the masses and their thinking. This show probably wouldn't have been aired or if it was, would've been pulled because of pathetic ratings if people didn't quasi-worship social media stars who carefully manage and curate their images online.

To the best of my knowledge none of these islanders are intellectuals and their lives revolve around parties, social media and good old fashioned hedonism. In my opinion it's more of an indictment on the people who actively watch and follow these imbeciles on TV

The more they do, the less they think about things such as the real issues facing this country- didn't one of the contestants last year not know what Brexit is? So we then end up with the impending act of self-harm that is Brexit and the national disgrace that could befall us of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.
