Fans of The View are furious as hosts flaunt their wealth by filming a luxury beach vacation show
THE View fans are furious as the hosts go on a luxury beach vacation to film new episodes of their talk show.
Viewers slammed them for flaunting their wealth while others “struggle”.
The view which aired on Friday was pre-recorded as the hosts were busy getting ready to set off on their extravagant trip.
Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar and Sara Haines will host the Bahamas daytime show this coming week.
Over the weekend, guests were seen on social media enjoying life at the beach, relaxing in shaded loungers, enjoying decadent drinks and sampling delicious food.
One fan sarcastically wrote of the TV personalities trip, “Awwww. How nice.
“Those who struggle to put food on their table and gas in their car can see a vacation spot first-hand on TV.”
Starting Monday, The View will air from Baha Mar Resorts in Nassau, Bahamas.
The guest list for the week includes Tyra Banks, Simu Liu, Sherri Shepherd, Bowen Yang, Ne-Yo, and more.
The Extravagant Journey aims to celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary, following its premiere in 1997.

It was all first announced in May, when The View teased an “epic announcement” at the end of one of its shows.
Fans were excited to see what it could be, whether it was a permanent new host or a massive giveaway for the show’s dedicated viewers.
Instead, it was about telling the public that guests would enjoy a luxury beach getaway.
On social media, fans lambasted The View for teasing them and for flaunting the hosts’ vacation in their faces.
One upset Twitter user wrote, “For their big announcement, The View announced they were going to the Bahamas.
“They know we can’t all go but we can go to their site for ticket information……meanwhile I will be here working from home while they enjoy their paid vacation.
They sarcastically added, “Yay for everyone.”
Another said: ‘So let me get this straight? I waited 58 minutes for this epic announcement that I thought was about a new co-host.
“And all you did was tell us how ‘you’ are going to the Bahamas and how does that benefit us as viewers, you didn’t even offer a raffle?”
While The View hosts can celebrate their anniversary with their big trip to the Bahamas, they can’t celebrate a Daytime Emmy win.
The show was snubbed at the awards show on Friday.
The series lost to The Kelly Clarkson Show, which cleared the chart with a host of wins at the ceremony, but mostly in the Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show category.
The loss of the Daytime Emmys came after The Sun reported on The View’s plummeting viewership numbers.
According to Soap Opera Network, viewership for the week of June 6 reached 2,285,000.
For the same week in 2021, 2,360,000 viewers tuned in.
The ratings were even higher in 2020, as there were 2,586,000 fans watching.
View moderator Whoopi has also faced backlash from fans over her controversial comments in recent months.
