Every Temptation Island fan knows that the first night on the island is a major one. As the four couples settle into their new tropical home, they’re soon met face-to-face with the sexy singles who will ultimately test the bonds of their relationships. We meet the singles in an extremely tense—yet equally hilarious—ceremony in which each single uses their best pick-up line to introduce him or herself.
We sat down with Mark L. Walberg to get an insider's take on this now-iconic ceremony. Here’s what we learned:
1) Mark thought Deac had a very strong pick-up line. Walberg jokes, “they cut my line when I said ‘he’s got Big Deac Energy.’”

2) The guys are usually more nervous than the girls during the introduction ceremony. “The single women, they usually nail [their pick-up lines] -- one take, no problem,” Walberg says. “The guys,” he continues, “they can barely speak, out of nerves.”
3) On Temptation Island, first impressions can be deceiving. “What I find funny,” Walberg says, “your first impression of [the singles] is usually wrong.” He adds, “Pick-up lines -- they’re are fun and all -- but once the ice is broken…you got to be real then or it’s not going to last.”
