MTV International’s Ex On The Beach is headed to the U.S. MTV has set a 10-episode U.S. version of the reality format for premiere next month.
Hosted by rapper and actor Romeo, Ex on the Beach, described as “the ultimate relationsh*t show, will be set in Hawaii and will feature ten romantically embattled reality stars from The Bachelorette, Big Brother, Bachelor in Paradise, Vanderpump Rules, Are You The One? and Bad Girls Club. They’ll appear alongside everyday singles who show up for what they think is a run-of-the-mill love and dating show in paradise, only to be completely blindsided by their exes (in some cases multiple) face-to-face. A complicated web of hookups, deceit, revenge and drama unfolds against the sultry backdrop as couples decide if their love can be reignited, or if the flame of romance is gone for good. You can watch a promo trailer of the international series below.

Ex on the Beach will kick off with a launch special introducing the cast on Thursday, April 12 at 10 PM. The hourlong series will premiere a week later, on April 19 , and also will air across MTV’s channels internationally.

Outside of the MTV umbrella, the format has been licensed and produced in seven additional territories including Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Norway, Russia and Sweden. In total, there are 12 versions of Ex on the Beach around the world.
