Former “Temptation Island'' cast members Kaci Campbell and Erin Smith host this podcast all about “Temptation Island.” Kaci had one of the most shocking breakups with her then-boyfriend Evan on Season 1: They had known each other since they were kids, but Evan quickly gave in to his infatuation with Morgan and left the island with her. Erin appeared on Season 3, but although she left the island with her boyfriend Corey Sobczyk, she called it quits shortly after. 

Kaci and Erin quickly hit it off and decided to launch the podcast to recap episodes of all seasons of the show and give behind-the-scenes info and firsthand accounts of their own experiences on the island. 

“Temptation Island: RhapUp”

They discuss which couples they think will last and which ones will give in to temptation, displaying a sense of humor and true passion for the show.
