Love game dating show
Within minutes of introducing the second contestant — whom Cohen dubbed “buff Jesus,” thanks to his large stature and long mane of silky hair — the host asked about the size of his manhood. “I’m very true to myself on the show, so when there’s a hot guy on the show, I say, ‘Wow this guy is really hot,'” he adds, noting that a gay man would not have been tapped to host a national TV show back in the ’80s when Chuck Woolery emceed the original series.“I don’t think that would have happened years ago,” Cohen admits.“He really belongs with NBC because of Bravo,” Darnell shares, “but he wanted to do it so badly that he went all the way to the top to get permission.” Aside from Cohen’s flair, the show will feel a bit different to original viewers with the implementation of modern-day changes such as the splashy set, a 1-10 ratings scale, and a money prize where contestants choose love or money at the end of each episode.Plus, in addition to having a gay host, the contestants are much more diverse than the flagship show with interracial couples, gay couples, straight couples, young couples, and elderly couples.
It is even more rare when people have the opportunity to find this person of their dreams on a dating show.
“The cool thing is that we’re not making a big deal of it,” Cohen says of the casting.
