WATCH MAGAZINE_August 2021_Arielle Vandenberg


It’s way too easy to be envious of Arielle Vandenberg. Not only is the sunny host spend- ing two months on the big island of Hawaii to preside over the third season of the juicy romantic competition series Love Island , she looks camera-ready just moments after waking up in her hotel room (which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, sigh). FWIW, the Los Angeles–reared actress and social media star appreci- ates it all. “I’m sitting here looking at the water and think- ing ‘How did I get so lucky?’” she says. “I feel very grateful to be here.” Vandenberg, 34, hopped on Zoom to talk romance, her beauty musts, and more. So we’re chatting just a few days before all those cameras roll. Why are you especially excited about this season? Because it’s bigger and better!


“I need a couple to get married from the show. That’s my goal in life.”

LOVE ISLAND airs Tuesdays–Fridays andSundays at 9p.m. ET/PT on CBS. Exclusive bonus content streams onParamount+.
