The adventure dating series "Love in the Wild" returns with new host Jenny McCarthy and fourteen new singles who bring more drama, more conflict, more laughter and more tears to the jungle--with an ultimate goal of finding true romance. The fourteen men and women are initially paired up but in a shocking surprise, seven additional men are brought in to kick off the adventures as trios. The trios are immediately thrown into a challenge that forces them to navigate rough waters and crawl through a snake-infested well. The premiere episode concludes in an emotional elimination ceremony that will break up some teams and strengthen others. Seven singles will be sent home, leaving the rest of the teams still searching for love in the wild.
The newly formed couples set out on their first challenge as a duo to navigate the Dominican jungle. Emotions are heightened and fears emerge when they face a 40-foot cliff jump into murky waters. After an emotional Couple's Choice Ceremony, one man and one woman are eliminated. However, the episode doesn't end there and before the couples return to their accommodations a surprise twist has them rethinking the connections they have made.
The trios are chained together during a journey through the jungle and a bat cave. The winners go on a sailboat cruise, while the elimination ceremony sends six women home.
The couples set out to barter a plethora of coconuts in order to advance through a horseback-riding, machete-wielding challenge in the jungle. Some couples remain strong, while others experience heightened fears and emotional breakdowns. In the dramatic Couple's Choice Ceremony, alterior motives are revealed and an unexpected couple is sent home.
The drama spills over from Couples' Choice Ceremony where a potential relationship was torn apart. The remaining couples' patience is tested, as they are challenged to construct an outrigger that leads them into choppy sea waters. The teams then trek through swampy mangroves and experience a close encounter with spooky tarantulas. Many contestants try to cling on to budding romances while others could not want to be farther away from each other. In a shocking Couples' Choice Ceremony, two contestants surprise the group and sacrifice their own pursuit of love in the wild in order for others' love to blossom.
After a shocking Couples' Choice Ceremony that sent four singles home, the final three couples begin an intense adventure that will lead them through a scorpion filled hut. The couples get down and dirty on this challenge as they encounter a giant pool of quicksand and also have to dig for buried treasure. When a set of sore losers comes in last on the challenge, they also come dangerously close to losing each other. A surprise quiz at the Couples' Choice Ceremony gives an advantage to one couple hoping to make it to the finale.
The three remaining couples piece together a map leading to gold by riding unruly horses and navigating cliffs and rough waters. Later, the challenge winners choose the next couple to go home.
