Racy American reality series FBoy Island – where female contestants guess which men are womanisers – is getting an Australian version

The bawdy smash-hit American reality dating series FBoy Island is getting an Australian version in 2023.

Foxtel Group announced at their 2023 Upfronts on Thursday they will screen the risqué Australian show next year.

It is an original production based on FBoy Island’s spicy format which challenges female contestants to figure out which men are ‘nice guys’ and which are ‘f**k boys’.

Its madcap format saw it quickly become one of HBO Max’s most watched reality shows since first screening in 2021.

The Australian version will borrow its format from its US counterpart and task three beauties with sorting out the sleazy from the sweet.

Earlier this year, Caroline Swift, Warner Bros. Australia Head of Entertainment, told TV Tonight: ‘We’re shopping around FBoy Island, which is brilliant.

‘It’s HBO Max’s highest rated non-scripted launch in the last five years. Its central premise is ‘Can three female protagonists pick the FBoys out of a group of guys?’ Basically weed them out,’ she continued.

‘It’s as much a guessing game as it is a search for a genuine non-FBoy to fall in love with. It’s great.’

Both American critics and audiences responded positively to the US version with many praising its unique take on the reality dating format.

However, despite the show’s popularity, none of the couples that were formed on the series are currently together.

The show introduces three women to 24 men, 12 looking for love and the other 12 self-proclaimed FBoys who are looking to make some quick cash.

According to the HBO Max, ‘FBoy Island is a social experiment that asks an age-old question: can FBoys truly reform or do Nice Guys always finish last?’
