HBO Max drops steamy first trailer for Nikki Glaser’s wild new dating show FBoy Island


HBO Max dropped the first trailer for its wild new dating show, FBoy Island, hosted by comedian Nikki Glaser on Monday.

Two dozen attractive men have been flown to a tropical island where they will compete for the hearts of three gorgeous women – but the catch is that the 12 ‘nice guys’ are in it for love and the 12 ‘Fboys’ are just trying to win a cash prize.

It’s up to the ladies – Nakia Renee, CJ Franco and Sarah Emig – to suss out for themselves who is really looking for romance … which is easier said than done on the island.

Who is who? HBO Max dropped the first trailer for its wild new dating show, FBoy Island, hosted by comedian Nikki Glaser on Monday

‘Women have been forced to tolerate the manipulative douche-baggery of FBoys for far too long. And, that’s why we’re here. Welcome to Fboy Island’ Nikki says in the trailer. 

‘He’s really cute but he looks like he’s gonna ruin my life,’ CJ says after meeting the prospective suitors. 

As Nikki explains, it will up to the ladies to figure out ‘who the F is who’ and go for the nice guys – not the FBoys – to find a mate. 

The show is bringing together three women to look for love among male contestants between 22-35 years old – 12 of which are self-described nice guys and the other 12 self-described ‘FBoys’, according to People

The trio of beauties and two men will spend time getting to know each other on a tropical island where they will play games, drink, date and, if the trailer is any indication, make-out a lot.

Neither the women, the host nor the viewers will know who is a good guy and who is just in it to win cash until the end.

The men cover a wide variety of professions and hale from across the US. There is a firefighter, a chiropractor, an IT engineer, barber and even a Cirque Du Soleil Performer.

However, some of the men work in fields more traditionally thought of as ‘FBoy’ like models, fitness trainers, commercial real estate agents, brand ambassadors and a ‘Cryptocurrency Guru’.

A play off the popular slang term ‘f**kboy’, which describes a man who engages in multiple casual sexual relations, the show is a social experiment seeking to find whether or not FBoys can be reformed.

FBoy Island, which was filmed in the Cayman Islands, is unlike other dating shows in that there is a massive financial component – $100K on the line.
