As we reported, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' production company Milojo Productions is behind Logo's newest docuseries following "a group of young New York City professionals" on the island — and the special two-episode premiere is finally HERE!
However, many of the program's past contestants are calling BS on this casting choice!
