Laura Dundovic To Host Dating In The Dark

If you have ambitions to become a TV host these days a good short cut is to win Miss Universe Australia. Ever since Jennifer Hawkins won the world title, each year the Australian winner has become an instant It girl.

Laura who held the title last year has now been chosen to host Dating in The Dark, a reality show where the contestants get to know potential partners through a series of tests and challenges to find their perfect match in the dark.

Apparently the show is a ratings hit in the US and UK, each episode features three guys and three girls who will live together under one roof and only come into contact with the opposite sex through the specially created dark room, which has state-of-the-art cameras with high definition night vision technology to capture all the action.

I have to admit I am a bit suss that they won’t see or hear each other outside the specified room.

Production commences this week and Dating in the Dark will premiere exclusively on FOX8 this summer.

sounds like a re-invention of the 80’s “Perfect Match”

Our latest Miss Universe Australia, Jesinta Campbell, has obviously had this impressed upon her by her management as she is appearing at the opening of an envelope these days.

The desperation is actually starting to become a bit embarrassing.

I think it was originally based on a Swedish or Dutch show.

There are some eps/clips up on youtube if you wanna take a look. I was thinking it’d be really trashy but it actually was really interesting. I hope the Aussie version will be good! :)

Duke Nukem – yes except with out Dexter the robot

Paul – Jesinta is at risk of over exposure, but I am sure we will see her on something soon

I remembers Perfect Snatch – what a show!
The dodgy robot – which looked more like an office printer. The host and hostess having identical hairstyles – flicky blonde mullets. Ah…lady mullets. And on chicks who didn’t necessarily go the growl. Oh…and pastel jumpsuits. And at the nightclubs I’d frequent, line-upon-line of chicks trying to get the attention of Warwick Capper so he’d take them home and bone the crap outta them. What memories. The early 80s were truly awe-inspiring.
