Selena Gomez Dines With Zayn Malik’s Assistant Amid Dating Rumors

Love experts « match » couples based on their wants, needs and goals, then the couples see each other and meet for the first time as the bride walks down the aisle. I remember the pandemonium on social media the day the first Sexy Beasts trailer was unveiled. The reactions were hilarious, as people made jokes about this being a win for furry culture. But Sexy Beasts is basically a boring version of Love Is Blind, in which contestants are dressed up in full animal costumes, as to create some sort of charade. This isn’t a dating show, per se, but the dating sequences are immaculate. The Japanese reality series is basically a much less messy Real World, but the relationships are always reeeeeealllllyyyy slow burns.

The arguments that happen in every episode are supremely entertaining to watch and so petty that you’d want to grab a bucketful of popcorn and binge away. Too Hot To Handle is probably among the horniest shows on Netflix and we can say this knowing that the OTT platform has literal documentaries about porn. In this show, 10 young men and women are locked up in a place where they must flirt and indulge in activities with one another for eight episodes.

The Love Catcher franchise

This show is defo one filled with drama, with participants enticed by the prize money to reveal dark secrets like infidelity. Each contestant is asked a question about their relationship and will get €1,000 added to their €40,000 bond if they were to tell the truth. Most of the exchanges they have are dictated by the diary, which comes with obstacles like not being allowed to reveal their true feelings till the end. A refreshing take on the normal reality TV trope, it’s interesting to watch and see if the two of them can genuinely  fall in love in the process.

Although their rendezvous only lasts a week, it leaves enough memories for a lifetime. Ex-singer G.Na also stars in another season of the show for a French love story. Six men and women who start as strangers live together under one roof for the summer.

The Bachelor Franchise

Thanks to Paramount+, ’90s kids and ’00s queens can relive their youth. We’re only four seasons in, but Netflix’s Love Is Blind has already taken the world by storm. In fact, new versions of the series have already popped up in Japan and Brazil, with more on the way. While there haven’t been many success stories to date (thank goodness for Lauren and Cameron Hamilton), Love Is Blind is always fun to watch, even when it all goes horribly wrong. Netflix’s Selling Sunset was an instant smash hit, and it’s easy to see why. The glossy real estate show is as much about decadent properties as it is girl gang drama and flawless hair and makeup.


Then i started love catcher in seoul and again they’re only going to be together for 8 days. But for the uninitiated, the series follows the lives of strangers from different walks of life living under the same roof. If you’re looking for a show to really binge on, Terrace House has a total of five seasons with a whopping 206 episodes.

That’s right, contestants need to keep their hands to themselves but that’s a hard thing to do when all of the stars are Too Hot To Handle. The show is similar to Love Is Blind as it proves that there is more to a relationship than intimacy. So when i saw singles inferno, i was kind of expecting a similar thing of at least a few weeks and was really surprised when they said they would only be on the island for 9 days. I thought this was kind of odd, but assumed it was specific to this show.

Some of these secrets are met with disgust or judgment by the hosts and other members, while others are quickly brushed off. The hosts, too, go through their own process of empathy (albeit with limitations), ultimately showing a bit of kindness and respect to the participants in the final episode. If you ever get tired of typical reality dating shows featuring gorgeous models and 20-year-olds with their own “brands” living in amazing houses, then Rea(L)ove deserves a spot on your Netflix binge list. Already rather well-known, we would recommend Season 2 out of all 3 seasons if you’re pressed for time. The season was undoubtedly the most famous of the batch, although some say Season 1 was more satisfying to watch as it was more genuine and had less celebrity wannabes on the show. As it features non-celebrities routinely, the fresh faces may be pleasing to get to know.

Love and Joy

But, the winner is only that person who is able to maintain their “social distance” from all the others on the show. Last week, Indian Matchmaking was the newest addition to the library of reality shows on Netflix. It follows the story of a matchmaker called Simi Taparia who sets up her US-based clients with their supposed “perfect match”. So if you, like us finished binge watching the show this weekend and are looking for similar content, then you’ve landed in the right place. Here are 7 other cringe-worthy reality shows on Netflix and Voot that you should watch. As a concept, however, the show could be made slightly more stimulating if it included more challenges, games, or activities for the participants to prevent events from becoming too similar and monotonous.

Fans love not only the budding romances but also the drama between the ladies who each have distinct personalities and traits that cause conflict as they all vie for the same man’s attention. Of course, the ultimate goal is a happy ending that lasts beyond the span of the show. But when it comes to reception, which reality TV dating shows are most beloved by viewers? According to votes on Ranker, there are a few that are tops, and while some are expected, others that made the top 10 might be surprising. So from the get go I must warn you that Real Love pushes the envelope.

They are fully into it but do point out that the underlying concept – when the show is over, the couple are supposedly not going to be put in contact and will thus never see each other again – is “cruel”. Could Wakamatsu recreate his day job by preparing seared fillet of beef and a legumes garnish for 12 diners, with Nakasone as his sous-chef? He steps up, even though he never has the responsibility of overseeing a full service at work. Then they go on a road trip in a Volkswagen Beetle, but what’s this? The car has broken down and Wakamatsu must push it, sweatily but heroically, to their destination? Chef’s Table doesn’t feature any romances, but what is hornier than high quality, slow-motion shots of gourmet dishes?

At the end of the day, Love Is Blind is a reality show that thrives on drama. But the way it evolves into an in-depth exploration of cliché tropes makes it one of the most interesting reality shows currently airing. It’s impressive how it manages to pull off this nuanced take on dating shows while maintaining its delightfully trashy allure.

Unlike a lot of dating shows that primarily focus on just the sexual part of dating, or how many followers someone might want to get from being on the show, Love On The Spectrum is truly about love. Yes, this series sounds just about as crazy as Love is Blind, and you will feel tons of feelings going into it because it’s just that kind of show. But something I love about it is that it really does kick the drama up to a ten and is enjoyable to watch.
