Love Island Australia’s shock booze ban: Producers impose strict one drink a day rule to prevent contestants from getting ‘hammered’

Producers of Channel Nine’s reality series Love Island Australia have imposed a strict alcohol rule on the fun-loving cast of the dating competition.

Contestants are now limited to one alcoholic drink a day.

Participants have long been known to ‘get hammered’ on the show –  drinking to excess while filming, leading to embarrassing situations on and off camera.

Love Island’s executive producer Alex Mavroidakis told the Herald Sun heavy drinking wasn’t good for the show or the contestants as it slowed filming and  affected their looks and decisions.

He told the publication the raunchy Islanders would get one drink a day because ‘we are not one of those ‘get them hammered type of shows’.

‘We want them to look amazing and we want them to make smart decisions, so you will never see a drunk person on Love Island,’ he said. 

He explained boozing slowed production because contestants could sleep in with hangovers and get aggressive while drunk.

‘We shoot an episode a day and we cut an episode a day,’ Mavroisakis said.

‘It is a daily cycle for us and in order for that to happen they [the cast], can’t be hungover, they can’t make stupid decisions, they can’t have physical fights and they can’t scream and shout at each other.’

He added that Love Island was ‘about love’ and romance and looking at ‘hot people’.

The current season screening on Channel Nine’s digital platform 9Now was filmed in a picturesque villa in Mallorca, Spain.

Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show last month, host Sophie Monk, 42, explained that because the show is exclusive to digital TV, raunchier content is now permitted.

‘It’s a lot looser because it’s not on prime time. It’s edgier with twists and turns and bombs coming in,’ she told the hosts.
