In Kiss Bang Love, currently in production, singles searching for love will participate in a new social experiment to find their match based on blindfolded kissing. The series is hosted by Married at First Sight relationship and communication expert, Rachel DeAlto, who will provide guidance and advice to the singles throughout the experiment.
Each episode will follow a new man or woman as they meet ten potential mates and ultimately choose their favorite based on kissing while blindfolded, associated sensory perceptions and intimate conversations. Two final matches will go on romantic dates before a final decision is made.
“FYI continues to pioneer and re-invent the relationship genre,” said McCarthy. “In ‘Kiss Bang Love,’ we explore whether blind physical chemistry can pre-determine romantic success.”
Based on a Danish format, Australia’s Seven Network aired six episodes of the reality relationship series. It debuted on May 24 to low ratings and never recovered. The network confirmed after the final episode on July 5 that the show would not be renewed.
Kiss Bang Love is produced by Kinetic Content for FYI. Chris Coelen and Sam Dean are executive producers for Kinetic Content. Gena McCarthy, Liz Fine and Toby Faulkner serve as executive producers for FYI.
