Love Island USA fans vow to BOYCOTT show after producers pull 'infuriating' cast shakeup | The Sun
LOVE Island USA fans have vowed on Twitter to boycott the show after the producers make major cast changes.
The show's host and narrator were replaced this season, as it moved from CBS to Peacock.
Love Island USA is back for its fourth season with ten new singles from all over the country, who are trying to find love, but they will see some new faces as long-time cast members get dropped.
Sarah Hyland is the new host of the USA version, replacing Arielle Vandenberg after three seasons.
The producers also replaced the narrator, Matthew Hoffman with Iain Stirling, who was the original narrator of the U.K. version.
Arielle brought the US version into fruition and now fans are furious that she is no longer the host.

The premiere aired on Peacock on July 19.
The Modern Family actress is not a stranger to reality TV, as her fiance, Wells Adams, was a contestant on the 12th season of The Bachelorette and later appeared on three seasons of Bachelor in Paradise.
However, fans are threatening to boycott the show because they want Arielle back.
Arielle's departure comes after the reality show wanted to rebrand itself, due to moving to a new home.

Love Island USA moved to a streaming service for seasons 4 and 5, due to the "explicit nature of the show," according to its Twitter.
After Sarah announced last month on Instagram that she would be the new host, fans were confused because it was not announced previously that Arielle was no longer coming back.
She did, however, address why she left the show by making a post on the social media site.
"I was cast to be the host of CBS's version of Love Island and we had 3 amazing seasons!" the post read.
"Unfortunately, CBS didn't pick it up for a fourth season. The show is now going to Peacock and it being a different network, they are rebranding it completely, including a new narrator and new host," the actress continued.
Arielle continued that Sarah would be the new host and she is excited to see her take over.
"You're gonna kill it!" she told Sarah.
She ended her post: "To sum this up, I just wanted to come here to let all of you know how much I have loved and appreciated your support over the last 3 seasons of @loveislandusa."
TIME TO BOYCOTT!
While Arielle was excited for Sarah to come on as the new host, fans did not share in her sentiments.
They took to Twitter to say they are boycotting the show because they didn't like the new changes.
"I'm boycotting this season since Arielle Vandenberg is being replaced by a-lister," wrote one angry fan on Twitter.
Another fan said: "I’m not feeling this new host. I need miss Arielle Vandenberg back! #LoveIslandUSA."
"Love Island USA is not #LoveIslandUSA without our beloved voice narrator Matthew Hoffman @MATTHEWHOFFMAN1 and our beloved Arielle Vandenberg @Arielle. A betrayal by NBC, Peacock, and Love Island! #LoveIsland I won't watch or subscribe and maybe you'll bring back Matt and Arielle," tweeted one LI fan.
"Please don’t give me a reason to abandon the U.S version," one fan begged.
One disappointed fan tweeted: "Y’all got rid of Arielle AND Matthew…what’s the point?"
"Bring back the old voiceover guy," commented another.
In her original Instagram post, Arielle was sad that she was actually "very unhappy" that she would not be returning.
She continued that she "labored so onerous to lastly get there and it was a precise dream come true.”
Arielle thanked her Love Island family saying: " I wouldn’t have traded the experience for anything! And to my @cbstv and @itvamerica family, thank you for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. I will never ever forget it."
“So with that being mentioned… my time on Love Island is over. I’ve half-hour to pack my luggage and say my goodbyes," the comedian ended her post.
