Love Island USA is making a lot of changes heading into its fourth season.
The show is moving to the Peacock streaming service, which should make the episodes better than the episodes in the previous three seasons and more in line with the more popular Love Island UK version, thanks to the lessening of censor interference.
The next change announced was replacing the voice of Love Island USA, Matthew Hoffman, with the beloved voice of Love Island UK – Iain Stirling.
Now, the new home of Love Island USA has replaced the host of the show as well.
