Press release from MTV, March 15, 2018:
Hip-Hop Artist and Actor Romeo Hosts Reality Royalty in The Ultimate “Relationsh*t” Show Beginning Thursday, April 19th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT
MTV is hitting the shores of Hawaii with the greenlight of a new U.S. version of the global youth brand’s international phenomenon “Ex On The Beach.” The news comes as the network closes 9 consecutive months of primetime growth and ranks as the fastest growing top 40 cable entertainment network.
Multi-Platinum rapper and actor Romeo is set to host the social experiment that features 10 romantically embattled reality stars from “The Bachelorette,” “Big Brother,” “Bachelor in Paradise,” “The Challenge,” “Vanderpump Rules,” “Are You The One?” and “Bad Girls Club” 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. Meet the cast Thursday, April 12th at 10 p.m. ET/PT during the launch special in advance of the 10, one-hour episode series debut on Thursday, April 19th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
