Some matches are made in heaven.
And some are made on TV – and believe us, there’s very little that’s heavenly about this dating show.
“One thing you can guarantee is that at least once a week you’re going to go, what the hell?”, says the show’s co-host Brian McFadden, of Westlife fame.
“The contestants are very forward – it’s much wilder than Take Me Out.
“If it aired before the watershed we’d have to cut most of the footage. It would only last about five minutes… I was shocked by a lot of it.”
The OMG factor comes from seeing 40 women cheekily interrogate four men who hope to win a date with one of them.
At the end of each round, the women then go and stand by their favourite man.
Brian, 33, explains that the ladies will put the guys through a series of challenges.
“The first round is visual and the girls go for really obvious things like big arms or chests or who looks most attractive.
“But by the pillow talk round, it all changes, and they like the guy with the best personality,” he says.
The man with the most women in his line at the end is the champion and he can choose which girl he wants to date.
But even that is risky.
“If you went out with them you’ll have the best night ever…and probably end up in prison,” laughs Brian.
“On one of the dates they’re going for a curry – they’re the worst prizes ever.”
Brian and co-host Laura Jackson will mingle with the singletons, inviting them to reveal further cheeky snippets of information about themselves.
After saying bye-bye to the rejection pile, most of the women return to the show each week, meaning that viewers will get to know them.
It has been a chance for Brian, who is married to model and DJ Vogue Williams, to learn what women really want!
“This show was a real eye-opener for me,” he says.
“Muscles, they all want tall, dark, handsome with muscles. But who doesn’t? Don’t we all!
“I’m over the moon to host this show,” he adds.
“Dating should be a fun and exciting experience and I’m looking forward to creating compatible matches, fingers crossed!”
