Ariana Madix has reportedly been lined up to host 'Love Island USA'.

The 38-year-old TV star has been identified as the ideal candidate to replace Sarah Hyland as the host of the US version of the reality TV franchise.

Ariana hasn't formally signed an agreement to host the show, but the contract is set to be inked soon, according to TMZ.

An official announcement is also expected in the near future.

Sarah recently took to Instagram to announce her departure from the show.

The 33-year-old actress hosted 'Love Island USA' for two seasons, but she decided to walk away due to a scheduling conflict.

She wrote on her Instagram Story: "Well, just got a text [laughing emoji] I’m disappointed the news had to break this way but it is in fact true that I will not be returning to the island this summer. I have committed to an exciting project, that will be announced soon, that conflicts directly with the shooting dates for Love Island USA (sic)"

Despite her exit, Sarah still intends to watch the TV show over the summer months.

The actress continued: "While I’m sad I can’t return, I hope to see lots of love this summer on Peacock this upcoming season!"

Ariana is best known for starring on 'Vanderpump Rules', but she was recently accused of profiting from Tom Sandoval's 2023 cheating scandal.

Ariana spit from Tom after it emerged that he had a months-long affair with Rachel Leviss, and Lala Kent subsequently claimed that the fallout has helped to transform Ariana's fortunes.

Lala, 33, said on 'Vanderpump Rules': "She needs to come back to reality and remember who her friends are and what they've done for her."
