If this is the first you're hearing about Love Island, buckle up, because it's about to become your newest reality TV obsession.

In short, Love Island combines the things you love most about other dating shows: it involves young, beautiful people who are looking for romance being locked in a villa in a tropical location, and similar to Bachelor in Paradise, there will be regular "recoupling ceremonies" where each islander must partner with an islander of the opposite sex. There will also be regular eliminations — referred to as "dumpings" — like in The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but it will all be treated with the same level of calculated strategy and seriousness as Survivor.

Based on everything that's gone down in all seasons of Love Island in the UK to date, here are a few things you should know — and look forward to — while watching the American instalment this Summer.
