Step aside, The Proposal. There’s a brand-new (sorta) dating show in town, and it’s currently seeking victims contestants.
According to People, Bravo is developing a reboot of the one and only Blind Date. The network is reimagining the popular 1999 series for a modern-day audience, so we’re expecting to see loads of diversity in regards to ethnicity and sexual orientation. (#Bless)
Blind Date originally premiered in 1999 and ran for ten successful seasons before airing its final episode in 2006. The series follows a series of strangers who meet for the very first time on a blind date (duh).
The catch? The majority of the interactions are extremely awkward and unsuccessful. The show’s producers even provide commentary through subtitles and chat bubbles, so it’s pretty harsh.
