The concept behind Temptation Island is meant to be experimental and controversial — four couples who aren't completely satisfied in their relationships are split up. They live on an idyllic island with a set of sexy singles who want to show them what else is out there.

The reality series debuted in 2001 with host Mark L. Walberg (no, not that Mark Wahlberg), and it ran for three seasons before it was canceled.

Where is 'Temptation Island' Season 4 filmed? Season 5 is filmed in the same location.

Since the reboot debuted in 2019, the show started back at the beginning with a new Season 1, and we're now up to Season 5 of the show's current edition. Since then, the four couples and the tempting singles have been soaking up the sun in Maui. The epic filming locations on the island, the optional shirt policy, and the constant Pacific heat have definitely led to some steamy interactions between the questioning couples and those brought in to intrigue them.

During the show's original run in its early years, the filming location shifted a few times. The first season was taped in Belize, while Season 2 was shot in Costa Rica, and Season 3 was filmed in Honduras.

What's different about Season 5 of 'Temptation Island'?

Every season has the same rules ... or so we thought! In the new season, our lovely host had a huge announcement for the cast members.

"We're going to do something we've never done on Temptation Island. Singles, you will have the option to send a message as well," Mark said in the trailer. Before, only people in couples could send a message to say there were interested. Now communication goes both ways.

The show now features a Temptation Light. Anytime someone gives into temptation, this light will turn on and let all of the participants know. Do we think this will lead to some serious drama?

Marisela Figueroa and Christopher Wells, the next couple on the show, are going to need to overcome some infidelity if they want to make it work.

Leonila "Paris" Pedro and Nzubechukwu "Great" Ezihie are the fourth and final couple. They share a totally modern love story. Paris went the social media route, sliding into Great's DMs. It worked! Now, though, Paris wants to marry young and get started on a family. Since they both come from a party culture past, Great wants to take things slow and be a little bit looser with their relationship.
