Love Island USA — the American spinoff of one of Britain’s hottest summer dating series — was originally hosted by Arielle Vandenberg, who held the position for three seasons.

There’s no word from Peacock on who could replace Hyland this go-around. However, TMZ reported that Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix has been named as a possible replacement. The report broke ahead of Hyland’s Instagram post.

It wouldn’t be Madix's first time making a cameo on the series. Last season, she stopped by as a guest visitor.

Previous seasons of Love Island USA are now available to stream in full on Peacock.
