Can you get married to a complete stranger in a week.? Or within 10 weeks.? What about the first time you ever meet your spouse is on your wedding day.? Can you go on a tv show and let “professional” match makers tell you which person is your perfect match.? Can you eliminate potential bachelors/bachelorettes until you get to your perfect one.? Well in these tv shows that is exactly what these complete strangers does. They drop everything at home and go on tv hoping to find love.
The Spouse House
This is a new TLC show that aired its 3rd episode this week. Now the Spouse House is about 14 singles moving into the house looking for love. The catch.? Well there HAS to be a proposal each week or people have to leave. The people the singles feel didn’t make a connection with anyone are the ones that are voted out. If there is a proposal then everyone stays in the house and we watch the engaged couple become married. Each season will be in a new city & the singles all have to be in that city so when the show is done there won’t be any problems with trying to move near each other because they all live in the same city.
Married At First Sight
Now I NEVER watched this even though I wanted to. I never got the chance I kept forgetting. Now based on what it says online this is what the show is about. . . “The cart comes way before the horse in the reality series “Married at First Sight.” Based on a hit Danish format, “Married…” features six people who agree to participate in an extreme experiment: Each covenants legal marriage with a complete stranger. Specialists — including a spiritualist, a relationship coach and a sociologist — use scientific matchmaking methods to determine each couple, who will not have met or had contact with each other until the wedding day. The series then documents the relationships, including honeymoons and other relatable events of married life. After several weeks, each couple must decide whether to remain together or go their individual ways.”
Are You The One
I really love this show. 20 singles come into one of the houses they have. The singles house and must communicate with each person to figure out who their match is. Each week there is a new game they must play to score dates with certain people and if they win the producers set up a romantic date for the couples. At night when the couples are on their date the rest of the cast mates must choose which couple to send to the truth booth to see if they are a perfect match. Once the ceremony comes we find out if the couple who was sent to the truth booth was a match or not. If they weren’t they have to find their match with someone else. If they were they move into the honeymoon suite (2nd house). Then everyone guess who their perfect match is by who they like and put their hand print into this machine and then there are beams to let people know how much matches are correct or wrong. There are 10 beams so when all of them are lit that means they win $1 million to split among themselves. If there are no beams at the end of each ceremony then they lose money. I love this show because you always see people who are not a match still fight to be together. And honestly to this day there is only ONE perfect match who is married with a child the rest didn’t make it. Lets just say that there are more non perfect matches together than perfect. So maybe the match makers were wrong.?
I don’t watch these shows but here is a description I found online. All of the rules are adopted from the rules of The Bachelor, its parent show. The series revolves around a single bachelorette (deemed eligible), who is usually a reject from the previous Bachelor season, and a pool of romantic interests (typically 25; 30 in season 5), which could include a potential husband for the bachelorette. For the final selection, one of two male suitors proposes to the bachelorette. All eleven seasons of The Bachelorette have ended with a proposal which the Bachelorette either accepted or declined. This differs from The Bachelor, who does not always propose at the end of the show. Season 13 is the first to have an African-American contestant as the bachelorette.
At the end of it all. All the craziness all these people have ONE thing in common. Finding love. Hopefully the ones that last outside the show last forever. I mean everyone deserves love even if it’s just for TV.
