A new wave of fearless female comics speak candidly about sexism in the serious business of stand-up comedy.

The format sees three women move to a tropical island where they’re joined by 24 men — 12 self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” looking for love and 12 self-proclaimed “FBoys,” there to compete for cold, hard cash. The women will navigate the dating pool together with the hope of finding a lasting love connection.

By the season finale, all will be revealed, including who is a Nice Guy, who is an FBoy, and who do the women ultimately choose. HBO Max describes FBoy Island as a “social experiment that asks the age-old question: Can FBoys truly reform or do Nice Guys always finish last?”

The queer reality star will have a mix of men and women as potential suitors.

“When I first got the call to be a part of a reality dating show called FBoy Island, I said yes immediately,” explained Glaser, who recently hosted MTV’s 2021 Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted. “Then I realized they weren’t asking me to be one of the girls looking for love. That is not a joke; it was embarrassing. But as a massive fan of this genre, hosting this show was a true dream.”

She continued: “I look forward to hosting for the next 43 seasons. I knew going into it that a show created and produced by the people behind my two favorite shows (The Bachelor & Love Is Blind) was going to be insanely good, but this one exceeded my expectations. I already know what happens and I can’t wait to watch it every week.”

Jennifer O’Connell, Executive Vice President, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family, HBO Max, added: “This is an incredibly entertaining dating show full of twists and turns that will leave the audience constantly guessing.”
