Abby Chatfield says her new series FBoy Island is a ‘feminist’ dating show where ‘women are in control’
Abbie Chatfield has branched out further into the world of dating reality TV with a gig hosting the new Binge series, FBoy Island.
As filming on the raunchy matchmaking show wrapped up, the media personality, 27, revealed some thoughts on the series. The Daily Telegraph Thursday.
She said that despite the premise of “women” trying to convince the leading ladies that they are not “FBoys”, the show is actually a humorous “feminist” piece.
“We’re not The Bachelor or Love Island, and we don’t pretend to be a political documentary about feminism,” said Chatfield.
“But in terms of reality shows and the scope of that, they’re very feminist as we call out FBoys constantly and women in control.”

And she continued, “We do it in a humorous way and we don’t pretend to be a serious show. Everyone knows what they’re getting into. It’s like we’re all in on the joke.
Chatfield went on to say that the series intends to “call out ‘the bad behavior of the Fboys'”.
“The whole point of the show is that when people do things that are a little cooked up, I connect with them in real time,” she said.
As filming wrapped up on the smutty matchmaking show, the media personality revealed some thoughts on the series to The Daily Telegraph on Thursday.
It comes after Chatfield was questioned by a number of fans who called out the show for needing body sizing to be more inclusive after a question was asked on the app about the contestants’ weight.
As the new host encouraged plus-size women to apply to the show, more shocking questions emerged from the application form.
As her Instagram followers flocked to apply, some were shocked to find that they were asked to say how many people they had slept with.
The radio host agreed it was an inappropriate question but was unable to explain why it was there and said she did not have the “power” to change it.
