Showmax has licensed its first international reality TV series format, “Temptation Island”.

The ultimate relationship test, “Temptation Island” follows four couples at a pivotal time in their relationship, where they must mutually decide if they are ready to commit to one another for the rest of their lives — or go their separate ways.

Together, the couples experience the ultimate holiday in paradise, where they join single men and women, all looking for love.

There, they live the “single life,” in a test that is meant to help answer their most difficult questions about their relationship.

Distributed by Banijay Rights, the global distribution arm of Banijay, “Temptation Island” is a Teen Choice-nominated pop culture phenomenon, which has been adapted 25 times and counting.

“’Temptation Island South Africa’ is going to be must-watch and must-tweet TV,” says Candice Fangueiro, Showmax’s head of content.

“South Africans love reality TV; ’The Real Housewives of Durban’ recently set the record for the most first-day views on Showmax ever.

“Our audience has already devoured the first two seasons of ’Temptation Island USA’ so we’re confident there’s an appetite for more, especially when we add some uniquely South African spice.”

You can enter as a singleton or couple on the “Temptation Island SA” website.
