Now Casting: Married At First Sight Meet Your Husband On Your Wedding Day

wedding day

Single and desperate to get married then reality show Married At First Sight might interest you.

This show from Denmark will see four couples matched up but they will only meet for the first time on their wedding day.

NINE are now looking for people willing to participate on the show.

Here is the blurb:

The Nine Network and Endemol Australia are looking for single men and women to take part in a groundbreaking new television show.

We are searching for men and women who are genuinely looking for love and willing to put their heart on the line. You must be ready to commit to love.

This series uses the science of matchmaking to help unlucky-in-love singles meet a potential lifelong partner.

This is not a competition and there is no cash prize.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to find LOVE.

You have to be 25 years or older and obviously not married and bad luck if you are looking for a visa as you have had to be a permanent resident for at least two years.

Go here to apply. 

It will be interesting to see who applies.

If You Are The One – What Happens Once The Show Is Over?

If You Are The One, the Chinese dating show watched by 50 million people in China and a few people on this blog is become a cult show like Iron Chef did in the 2000’s.

They even took the last straight guys out of Sydney and had an Australian special that was screen a couple of weeks ago on SBS2, Tony Abbott probably would have called it the visa special.

But what happens after the show has ended how many of the couples stay together and how difficult is it to actually to get on the show is in this excellent article on Junkee where they track down an Australian expat who went on the show. It is also interesting how the prize to Greece is used as a hook to get the contestants to choose a partner.

Do you think a show like this would work in Australia?

Come Date With Me On ELEVEN Sunday and Monday Nights

Come Date With Me started on ELEVEN last night. It was a long awaited debut for a show that was commissioned for TEN to screen in 2012.

The show is a combination of a dating show and Come Dine With Me. The guy or girl cooks for five girls at a dinner party and then picks one to take on a $1000 date at the end of the week.

To be honest I only watched 10 minutes of the debut episode last night and will give it a more considered look tonight. However what I saw did not rock my socks off.

But what did you think of it?
