The show follows trios of men and women who meet and get to know one another in a totally dark room.After several meetings and choosing one partner, they’re shown each other’s physical appearance and must decide if they’d like to continue dating.Throughout the show, the host provides the men and women with additional insights by providing personality profiles showing which contestants are their best matches and also allowing them to view items the others have brought to the house, such as items of clothing or luggage.Other episodes include sketch artists drawing contestants' impressions of each other.Dating in the Dark (Daten in het Donker) is a reality show created in the Netherlands where 3 single men and 3 single women move into a light-tight house getting to know each other and form bonds in total darkness.Three men and three women are sequestered in separate wings of the house, unable to have any conversation or contact with the opposite sex unless in the dark room.
Hosted by Rossi Moreale, the ABC reality series debuted last summer, paired with the alphabet network’s Bachelor series.
The show process started with an audition for producers where I detailed my dating life. Men and women were separated in different wings of the house and we only met the opposite sex on dates in the central dark room. Then we had a mix of free-choice dates, and dates with our expertly matched partner.
After I passed that phase, I moved on to a very long personality test. I had my doubts, but I found I was choosing to meet the same girl the experts selected for me.
My heart racing, I quickly look up and I see nothing. There was the first date at Grimaldi's with the girl in an arm bandage because her pet bird had attacked her.
You-can't-see-your-hand-in-front-of-your-face-even-after-being-in-there-for-an-hour dark. Thus begins one of my adventures on the new ABC show, aptly named "Dating in the Dark." Maybe you're asking, "What's a good-looking boy from New York City doing in Los Angeles on a dating show?
"The word people should be looking for is television, not reality," says contestant Sasha Perl-Raver, who was one of six people looking for love in the third episode of this year's new ABC reality romance series.
