Both Love Island and Splitsvilla share the exact same concept. Both shows feature an equal number of male and female participants, who then try to find their true love while also trying to break apart other couples, with the intention of winning the show. The competition only gets more hectic as contestants get eliminated, as when there are less number of players, it becomes more difficult to find a partner, which is a requirement to survive on the show.
