Channel 10 has confirmed the premiere date of its new reality show The Real Love Boat.
Watch Below: First look at The Real Love Boat
The Real Love Boat takes 21 singles and, as the name suggests, puts them on a boat in the middle of the Mediterranean in hopes that at least some of them will fall in love.
Setting sail on October 5th, the show promises plenty of romance and a boat-load (excuse the pun) of drama.
Host Darren McMullen will be joined by cruise director Hannah Ferrier and entertainment manager Daniel Doody who will help keep an eye on the contestants and act as love gurus when needed – and they will be needed.
Cruise captain Paulo will also appear occasionally to share his opinion on the contestant’s progress.
Similar to Bachelor in Paradise, each episode the boys and girls will take turns choosing another contestant to date. But unlike Bachelor in Paradise, the dates will be incredible!
The Real Love Boat website promises, “[The cast] will visit gorgeous islands as they travel across the Mediterranean and go on romantic dates unlike anything they’ve experienced before. It’s dating, but on steroids”
Channel 10 have already announced the 21 contestants (or are they passengers?) boarding The Real Love Boat. However, from what we’ve seen on the trailer it looks like some will be ‘intruders’ coming aboard later in the season. And like with any dating show, the intruders are sure to shake things up.
Without further ado, here are the singles looking for love on The Real Love Boat.
