I thought I’d seen it all before. The premise of this show sounded so familiar.
People, who have never met, end up getting married by the end of the 3-week event — as they are calling it.
But wait, this show is actually different! In this “experiment,” people get to know each other as individuals, before they actually see each other. It asks the question, Is Love Really Blind.
At the beginning, they live in this house (or a building of some sort), but the guys stay with the guys, and the ladies stay with the ladies. The two don’t mingle — until they go on their “dates.”
These “dates” happen in these rooms they call “dating pods.” There is a big sheet of opaque glass between them — they can totally hear each other, but can’t see each other.
You get to know them on a deeper level, while they get to know each other on the same deep level.
So, can people really fall in love after five days? The “contestants” seem to think they are ready for a lifetime of love and marriage after less than a week! Could it be a trainwreck? Could it possibly be real?
Okay, so once the guys propose — which is REALLY early on — they are allowed to see each other. But then, they have to see if their emotional attraction can turn into a physical love.
After the “dating pods,” and the proposals, the couples must move in together and meet each other’s parents.
That is crazy scary WITHOUT a crew of cameras following you!
It is a bit nerve wracking and intense!
The show is ten episodes long, and if you aren’t careful, you can end up binge watching the whole thing in a couple day!
The show is totally addicting! I. Can’t. Stop. Watching.
I want to say it’s sort of similar to 90 Day Fiance meets The Circle meets Love At First Kiss, but it really isn’t. It is its own entity, entirely.
I’m about to drop a spoiler here, so don’t read on if you want to be surprised — Not every couple makes it to the end. Some serious s*** goes down during the season, and we see couples implode, explode, and break up.
Who will make it to the end? You have to watch and see!
