With Married at First Sight and Farmer Wants A Wife having wrapped, and The Bachelor cancelled for 2024, you might have found yourself with a great, big dating-show-shaped hole in your life.

If that’s the case fear not. Not only do the team at Channel Seven have a new show for us to dive into, but they’re upped the ante with a format they have billed as “the most radical and extreme dating experience ever seen on television.”

The network is set to release its new series, Stranded On Honeymoon Island later this year. Based on a ore-existing Danish format, Honeymoon Island’s Australian iteration is being produced by none other than Endemol Shine Australia—aka the team behind MAFS—so it’s guaranteed to be a juicy watch, if anything.

Scroll on for everything we know about the reality show so far, including which famous Aussie media personality is set to narrate it.

What Is Stranded On Honeymoon Island?

Inline with most modern dating shows, Stranded On Honeymoon Island will star “12 unlucky singles.”

The show will begin with a speed dating event, where participants will be paired off and marry (yes, marry). But unlike MAFS, they won’t be retreating to a comfortable life at Skye Suites. Rather, the newlyweds will be dropped on a desert island with nothing but their wedding gear, where they will remain for three whole weeks.

As Channel Seven explains, the idea is that: “Removed from all modern dating obstacles, with no devices, no distractions, and nowhere to hide, these brave couples will live and breathe their new relationship.”

Channel Seven has released a teaser trailer for the debut season, which features several singles galivanting around the tropics in their wedding attire. It also shows the couples coming together on a beach, with accusations levelled about external relationships. So, it’s basically MAFS, but on a beach (and dare we say, beefier?).

Whether or not love will bloom or go bust in paradise remains to be seen.

Who Narrates Stranded On Honeymoon Island Australia?

If the voice of Stranded On Honeymoon Island‘s narrator sounds familiar, that’s because it probably is. The show is narrated by one of Australia’s most famous radio personalities, Jackie O.
