"That’s what is exactly going on here," says host Mark L. Walberg of the 24 singles looking for love. Walberg is reprising his hosting role on USA 15 years after the debut of Temptation Island on Fox. Asked about the differences between then and now, Walberg responds: "I don’t know if it’s too different than before. We acknowledge their journey more. It may have been the case before, but we sort of looked at them as tempters. Now we’re really looking at the fact that these people are also at a crossroads. They are hoping to find love, and it’s not so much about them trying to just break up a couple. It’s also maybe about one of these people is better for them too. I like that it’s a two-way street now." ALSO: Walberg explains the behind-the-scenes thinking of Temptation Island.
