Get your Tinder passports ready for the ultimate virtual paradise for Love Island Australia fans, without the drama. Aussies went CRAZY for Love Island UK this year, with data from Tinder revealing that mentions of ‘Love Island’ in bios increased seven-fold in June and July of this year, compared to January 2021.
As the series heads Down Under, Aussie Love Island fans will get the chance to land themselves their very own Summer of Love and match with their favourite Ex-Islanders from Seasons 1 & 2, as Tinder launches in-app experience, ‘Swipe Island’.
Launching on Monday 11th October at 6pm, Swipe Island is the ultimate virtual Love Island Australia experience, available exclusively on Tinder every Monday night during Love Island Australia Season Three.
Once there, Tinder members looking for a (holiday) romance can match and chat with other fans of the show, along with ex-Islanders from Seasons 1 and 2 of Love Island Australia.
The first two single ex-Islanders confirmed to be packing their virtual bags and heading to Tinder’s Swipe Island are Season 1 favourites, Millie Fuller and Teddy Briggs.
But that’s not it… Even non-Islanders are wanting a piece of the Swipe Island action, with Aussie music star, Peach PRC already confirmed to be joining the virtual paradise.
How Swipe Island Works:
Swipe Island will be open from 6-11pm, on Monday nights during Love Island Australia Series 3 (starting Monday 11th Oct)
To get to Swipe Island, Tinder members can keep an eye out for special Swipe Cards and in-app messages.
Once on Swipe Island, members will be able to match with other fans of the show as well as participating Ex- Love Island contestants who are on Tinder.
So what are you waiting for?! Set a reminder for 11th October at 6pm, get out the SPF 50 and watch this space. You might just snag yourself a bombshell.
Love Island Australia Season 3 premieres on Monday, 11th October at 8.45pm on Channel 9 and 9Now.
