Remember Fyre Festival, also known as the massive model-endorsed failure of a festival that wasn’t? Yeah, so do we, because literally how could anyone forget??
When not one but two separate documentaries released on Netflix and Hulu back in January detailed why the festival didn’t live up to the celebrity-filled, better-than-Beyoncé-at-Coachella experience it promised, viewers were rightfully stunned because (a) so many people endorsed it when (b) they legit had no direct involvement in the festival and (c) likely had zero plans of attending the festival once it was clear things were a hot mess. I’ll take “Yikes” for $300, please.
In a 2017 Fyre Festival video that’s since gone viral for ~obvious~ reasons, everyone’s fave supermodels Bella Hadid, Chanel Iman, Hailey Baldwin—you name it!—swam in the waters of a Caribbean island that was previously owned by Pablo Escobar (lol), promising the festival’s future attendees that they’d have a ’grammable hell of a time. But as they say, actions speak louder than words, and honestly, there were more words tossed around than salad.
Today, the same island that was featured in the promotional video for the failed festival is actually up for sale. So yeah, if you have the money, Saddleback Cay is being sold for—wait for it—$11. 8 million. Because who wouldn’t want to have an island full of bad juju in their life! Especially when it’s an infamous island!!
The island is one of 365 teeny other islands that rests in the Exumas, which is located in the Bahamas. Care to make an offer? It’s currently available through Bahamian realtor company HG Christie. And to be fair, if an island that cost thousands of workers months of hard labor without pay, led to a flurry of less-than-favorable internet memes, and had actual attendees fighting for their lives à la The Hunger Games, I’m pretty sure I’d want to get it off my hands too. But, you know, go figure to the person who scoops it up!
