How does 'FBoy Island' work?

FBoy Island features three women who have their pick from more than 20 men. Sounds good, right? The only issue is that half of those men are self-proclaimed Fboys and the other half are "nice guys" who are here for a real relationship. It's up to the women to suss out which guy is which

If they choose a nice guy and end the season with one of the men who wants a committed relationship, then all is well and they walk away from the show with a shared $100,000 prize.

If one or more of the women choose an Fboy in the end, then he can either split the money or take the entire $100,000 for himself and head back to the real world of Instagram gym selfies and dating apps. In every episode, the women get to date one guy each and get to know them. However, they also get to nominate any two men at the end of an episode and choose who gets eliminated. The man who gets eliminated then reveals if he was a nice guy or an Fboy.

In Season 1, Sarah chose Garrett, who turned out to be one of the Fboys in disguise as a nice guy.

He told her he planned to leave with the entire $100,000 prize for himself and he also planned to go back to his Fboy ways. But host Nikki Glaser informed him in a wild twist that he would leave the show empty-handed and instead have to donate the prize money to a charity of Sarah's choice.
