HBO Max and host Nikki Glaser are welcoming audiences back to FBOY Island.

Season 2 of the cheeky reality dating show debuts on the streaming service on July 14 and revolves around the same premise: Can three single women looking for love correctly determine which men are the actual "Nice Guys" and which ones are the "FBoys?"

Over the course of the season's 10 episodes, the three ladies will have to narrow down the playing field from an initial pool of 26 male contestants — 13 of whom consider themselves "Nice Guys," the other, 13 self-proclaimed "FBoys" — to hopefully walk away with a new love and half of a cash prize.

Check out the exclusive season 2 cast reveal below and see if, given the basic info and photos, you can tell who is an "FBoy" and who is a "Nice Guy." The occupations and reasons for wanting to be on the show may or may not help you...
