'FBOY Island' Season 2: Meet The Cast

Culture & Entertainment

HBO Max shook up reality television with their reality dating competition seriesFBOY Island last year and now it’s back for season 2. For those who aren’t familiar, FBOYIsland is a reality show that follows three women looking for love. The ladies are joined by 26 good-looking men, but there’s a catch. Thirteen of the men are self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” while the other 13 are self-proclaimed “FBoys.” The women are challenged to determine who is who as the male contestants’ titles aren’t revealed right away with hopes that they will choose the “Nice Guy.”


But not only are their hearts on the line but so is the prize money. If the ladies choose a “Nice Guy” the couple will split $100,000, but if they end up choosing an “FBoy,” the “FBoy” will walk away with the prize money instead.

The second season premieres on July 14 on HBO Max. Similarly to the Love Is Blind roll-out, three episodes will be available on July 14. Three more will release the following week on July 21. Two more episodes will debut on July 28, leading up to the final two episodes dropping on August 4.

Mother To Mother: 6 Things I Wish I Knew Before Having A Child

Before giving birth to my child two-and-a-half years ago, I was one of those women who thought I’d have the basics of child-rearing down. After all, I was in the fourth grade when my brother was born and spent much of my adolescence helping my parents take care of him. My experience with children increased even more when I became an aunt eight times over. I regarded motherhood as something I didn’t have total knowledge of but suspected I wouldn’t be too far off the mark when the time came for me to have a child of my own. Little did I know that there was no amount of practice that could prepare me for what was ahead.
