Anguilla is the main star of the Fox TV Show “Coupled”
Coupled is an American reality show that debuted on Fox on May 17, 2016 and airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. It is hosted by television personality, Terrence J and created by Mark Burnett, of Survivor, The Apprentice, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, Shark Tank, and The Voice.
Filming took place in Anguilla. The cast includes Miss Arizona USA 2009 Alicia-Monique Blanco, Miss Colorado USA 2015 Talyah Polee, intellectual property attorney and host, Domonique Price, and American singer-songwriter, TV personality, and former collegiate athlete Alex Lagemann.
Tyler Gattuso was in the running to be a cast member on Big Brother 17, but was ultimately not chosen due to the news being leaked by online media and his Instagram hinting at the news suggesting he wasn’t going to be active for quite a while. A few days later, after the cast for Big Brother was announced, he was ranting on twitter, shortly deleting them and deactivating his account.
Coupled features 12 single women who are on the quest for love. Each week different men come to the Caribbean Islands and meet with the women. The women have the choice to go right saying yes to pursuing the man some more and join him at the Tiki bar or going left saying no to spending anymore time with the man going back to the bungalow to await the next guy. This process is inspired by the app Tinder, in which you swipe left or right depending on your preference.
The women that choose to go to the tiki bar will await the man, where he will then pick two women to pursue further at the villa. Once at the vill, the man will spend some individual time with each of the women to see which one he has the most chemistry or connections with. At the end of the night, he will select one of the women to stay with him at the villa becoming Coupled and the other one will go back to the bungalow to await the next guy.
At the end of the their 6-week stay at the Caribbean Island, Anguilla, the couples will be faced with the decision to continue their relationship back in the United States or to end their relationship. The women who want to continue the relationship will join their partner waiting for them at a helicopter, while the women who do not want to continue the relationship will not join the men.
During the show, the contestants are giving cell phones which they can use to interact with each other. Some of the text messages will be featured on the show to create a dialogue and convey even more drama.
