Temptation Island 2 will be called “Margaritaville: the Hos Fight Back.”
The long-awaited sequel to Temptation Island will focus on the fornicating hijinks of the very popular gaggle of sluts assembled by FOX to destroy relationships on national TV during the first season. Hosted by the real Marky Mark (not the arms-akimbo imposter), the show will watch what happens when 16 wannabe actors gather on an island and get trashed. Endemol was asked to produce, but they were busy producing more crappy shows to import, as well as deluding themselves into thinking that Big Brother wasn’t their fault.
