Love at first sight? Boring. How about a dating show in which singles look for love by kissing someone while blindfolded?
FYI has greenlighted Kiss Bang Love, a reality show that aims to prove love is indeed totally blind. The network has ordered 10 episodes of the series, an international format that has seen success in Denmark, Australia, and Germany. Kiss Bang Love comes from the creators of Married at First Sight, an FYI series that premiered in 2014 and one also adapted from a Denmark series.
Kiss Bang Love will be hosted by Married at First Sight relationship expert Rachel DeAlto, who will mentor the singles on their perilous, eyes-wide-shut journey.
Each episode will feature a new dater, female or male, who will be introduced to 10 suitors and weed them out based on a blindfolded kiss, some intimate conversation, and “associated sensory perceptions.” The dater will take the two best matches on dates before making his/her final decision.
This seems as good of a time as any to briefly remember Mr. Personality, the short-lived Fox reality dating show hosted by Monica Lewinsky in which a woman was courted by 20 suitors wearing a mask.
