The announcement was made by Paul Telegdy President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment.

"The success of the relationships formed on the first season of this series is a testament to the unique format of this show," said Telegdy. "We look forward to an even more compelling season as the series will return with new format twists and a new set of contestants who will conquer the wild -- or not -- to find love."

"EUSA is thrilled that NBC is continuing its commitment to 'Love in the Wild,'" said David Goldberg, Chairman of Endemol North America. "Season two will present a great new cast and a number of surprises that will only further the advance the distinctive format of the show."

These singles have tried it all -- speed-dating, blind-dating, Internet dating -- and now, they will journey to a tropical paradise to see if they can find that special someone they've been looking for.

During elimination all of the couples will come together to reveal whether a connection has been formed with their current partner -- or if they would like to switch and get to know someone else. At the end of every episode, two heartbroken singles are sent home. The series culminates with just one couple left standing. That couple will have completed the adventure of a lifetime and found the one thing they've been searching for -- "Love in the Wild." "Lo

ve in the Wild" is produced by Endemol USA. Tom Shelly serves as executive producer.
