Couple Yanked From Temptation Island

Fox, already embroiled in new controversy over its reality show Temptation Island, which debuts tonight (Wednesday), announced Tuesday that it has dropped a couple from the show after discovering that they had a child. The show, branded by critics as exploitative, voyeuristic and an assault on fidelity, was to have involved four couples flown to a remote island where they are confronted by 26 attractive and near-naked models of both sexes who tempt their commitment to one another. It was not clear whether the couple yanked from the show (in the third episode) was being replaced.
