Critic Reviews for Temptation Island Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

If TV shows were school papers, this one would receive an F for plagiarism.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The confrontations of the Temptation Island finale were tense and uncomfortable, and made for riveting television. But it never sank to the level of exploitative garbage, trashy without being purposeful or redemptive. The format has a mission.

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Due to some choppy editing and few bits of real excitement, the project feels rushed and unconcerned with any of the individuals involved.

The participants are understandably wary and disappointingly dull, a woeful assemblage of self-absorbed party poopers.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

It is neither satisfying nor even sexy.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

After all the hype, Fox delivered a sluggishly paced show padded with filler and lacking salacious details, human interest and much of anything else.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Given the number of people involved, Island does an excellent job of distinguishing one self-absorbed airhead from another.

Oct 23, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

As purely lowest-common-denominator programming, "Temptation Island" offers moments of voyeuristic satisfaction. But it's entertainment at the emotional expense of the people who signed up for this show.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The potential for salaciousness might be overwhelming, but opening night is a slow-paced bore as Fox tries to legitimize this travesty of titillation by camouflaging it as a game.

Audience Reviews for Temptation Island: Season 1

  • Mar 21, 2019
    A morally bankrupt show, for sure. Watching this for blind distraction, it fulfilled its duty, but boy does Mr. Wahlberg have a lot to learn if he intends to be the next Chris Harrison (which no one could do, lets be real). First of all, how does it make ANY reasonable sense to take an already troubled relationship to an island named "Temptation Island?" To test your partner's loyalty? That CERTAINLY makes no sense.. but of course leads to the intrigue. ANYWAYS... this show was just mainly annoying because they show pointless scenes, and draw out the most ridiculous moments. Also, the final episodes??? You really want to drag out an hour with recaps? You clearly just did not shoot enough and wanna try to be a high end show so feel the need to draw the finale out for two weeks. Nothing is more frustrating than a show that cannot own up to the skills or intrigue it truly has (which is not.. a lot). Come on, even GOT can fit the finale in one episode. Just... don't watch if you expect something incredible to come from it.
