Sarah Hyland opened up about her new career move as the host of Love Island USA and finding love on the July 18 episode “Today” Show. Hyland spoke to Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager about their new duties as hosts on the American reboot of the British reality dating show, which premieres July 19 on Peacock. Kotb asked Hyland if people could “actually find love” on a reality show. The ‘Modern Family’ star replied: “I think anything is possible. I believe in a form of love at first sight…I think you have to let love grow.”
The racy reality show had to switch from CBS to Peacock because of the show’s “explicit nature.” Twitter. But Hyland said there’s more to the reality dating show than just drama and its “explicit nature.” In June, the American “Love Island” host told E! News, “I really love that for the most part the girls stick together and really connect and stand up for each other … As a woman, I love when I see that on TV.” But Hyland spoke to the “Today” hosts about more personal matters and she defined the moment she knew Wells Adams would be her husband.
When Sarah Hyland knew Wells Adams was the one
Sarah Hyland kept sloshing “Today” that she told former “Bachelorette” contestant Wells Adams that she was getting married a month after their first date! Hyland told Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager that she and Adams had been talking for months, but revealed, “On our first date, in my head, I was like, ‘I’m going to marry this man.'” The “Modern Family” star joked that She said she “waited a cool month” to tell her future husband about her plan, but Adams wasn’t even bothered, asking, “Okay, what kind of wedding do you want?”
The Love Island USA host said her first date with Adams was at a party with the Modern Family cast the night before the Emmys. Hyland explained, “I had a water in my hand and my purse in the other and he asked if he could hold my purse for me. And I liked to cringe with PTSD and think, ‘Why? my wallet?’ And he says: ‘So that you can dance more comfortably!’ And I thought I was going to marry that man.” He sounds like a goalkeeper.
So when is the wedding? Hopefully sometime this year. Adams told ET Canada: “Listen, we pushed it back two years in a row. If anything else crazy happens this year, we’ll just go to Vegas.” It worked for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez!
