Dating In The Dark: Premieres Tonight On ABC

July 20, 2009 11:33 AM by Britteny Elrick


Dating in the Dark is a new romantic reality TV series that will take looks out of the picture. The series will feature three new men and women each week, who will get to know each other and connect in total darkness.Keep reading for more details on tonight’s premiere…

Hosted by Rossi Morreale, the six-episode Dating in the Dark is a sexy social experiment asking the age-old question, “Is Love Blind?” Each week three new single men and three new single women, all looking for love, will live in separate wings of a house and remain totally sequestered from the opposite sex. While they’ll have no chance of seeing each other in the light, they will have the opportunity to date in a completely dark room. The participants won’t be able to see anything, but the audience will get to seeeverything first hand with the help of high-tech infrared cameras.

After several days of wooing, kissing and snuggling in complete darkness, the participants will select one of their dates to be revealed in the light. And after they see each other for the first time, they’ll have to make the ultimate decision… to stay with the person they fell for in the dark, or to move on.

In the premiere episode, “Pilot,” the participants are given some tantalizing clues about the opposite sex in the light, such as an article of clothing of one of their dates that they can touch and smell (different sorts of clues like these will occur in each episode). Near the end of the episode, each participant will work with a professional sketch artist to envision their favorite date (based on imagination and what they have felt in the dark room). When those drawings are shared with the opposite sex, fireworks ensue when they see what their dates expect of them! Once appearances have been revealed, participants will have to decide just how much looks really matter.

Dating in the Darkpremieres tonight on ABC at 10 ET/PT.

    We decided to watch just to see how good or bad of a show ABC had launched. Easily one of the worst ever. The concept was interesting but the actual show was boring and stupid. The participants were as shallow as paris hilton and had the appeal of the swine flu. Cancel now and save yourself the trouble.

    circle 8 – I was a bit intrigued at first. I have to admit, I felt so so bad for the people who got stood up on the balcony! this show is just another excuse for people to go through public humiliation! I mean, all they have to do is meet them on the balcony for goodness sakes. .. they don’t have to marry the people. Why couldn’t they just go out there. It makes them both look bad.
