Let’s judge a book by its cover.
Tired of swiping? In this new dating experiment, men compete on stage for one lucky bachelorette, with the little caveat that the men can't speak. Through a series of games - which includes calling the boys' moms and unlocking their phones - we narrow it down to two men. Finally, we hear their voices, and the lucky winning man is sent with our bachelorette to the bar for an immediate date. Audience members wear wristbands according to their relationship status, and a wingperson (who wears actual wings) helps those of you who are too shy to make a move.
Created by Allison Goldberg.
We’ll match LGBTQIA+, your parents, your grandparents, and any other combo you can think of in future shows!
What if I just want to watch?
Sounds hot. Tickets are on sale now!
If I participate, will you humiliate me?
Honestly, no. I'm not an insult comic, and the only person I've successfully roasted is myself. I mean, yeah, I'm a comedian, so there's that, but I'm much more interested in having fun with ridiculous situations than making an individual feel badly.
I want everyone to have a great time. Otherwise, why would anyone submit to be a contestant on a future show?
Are you seriously going to unlock my phone?
If you're selected as a contestant, I will send you a list of all the things I'd *like* to do, and we can take it from there. Consent matters, boys!
Is there a consolation prize?
Absolutely! An entire audience will see how sexy and brave you are, and I'll make sure they know it. 😉 I also have a fun gift for the men who don't "win".
Is this going to be on TV?
What? No! (Or at least... not yet. 😇) It's a live show, with an audience. Let's bring back face-to-face interaction, yeah?
Are you filming this?
Yes. If you're selected, I can explain further how/when/where the footage would be used - but I can assure you that your face won't be plastered anywhere without your consent.
Are you genuinely trying to set people up?
Yes. One match will be made onstage, and couples have officially resulted from the audience.
Where can I apply to be a contestant?
Do I have to be in LA to apply?
No. I'll take the show to any city where I get enough contestants. 🥳🎉🥳
