Hosted by former NFL quarterback and Season 5 Bachelor Jesse Palmer, each hourlong episode will feature 10 eligible daters competing in four pageant-style rounds to win the heart of a mystery suitor or “suitress,” whose identity is concealed from them.
Each episode will follow the male or female daters as they attempt to woo the mystery suitor with their words in first impressions and beachwear rounds; answer the mystery suitor’s most pressing romantic questions; and strive to receive a seal of approval from the mystery suitor’s most trusted family member in the final round.
After each phase, the daters who fail to connect with the mystery suitor are whittled down until two are left. The final two meet the mystery suitor for the first and proposes. ABC asks, “Will there be a marriage proposal that can’t be refused?”
The Proposal is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton, James Breen and Jason Ehrlich serve as executive producers.
