A new reality dating show is coming to Netflix and it’s not like anything we’ve seen before. On “Sexy Beasts,” contestants transform into creatures and animals using prosthetics so no one can see what each other looks like. The reason for dressing them up? To see how real blind-date chemistry really is and have singles find love connections based solely on personality.
The concept for the show isn’t entirely new. It’s based on a 2014 digital BBC series with the same name and premise. The U.S. version premiers on Netflix July 21st with comedian and actor Rob Delaney as narrator for each of the six-episode seasons. Some Twitter users shared their excitement about the trailer, with comments like, “This is cursed and I love it,” and “FINALLY, a dating show I would watch.” But not everyone is looking forward to it, like this user who writes, “Even though we are in the midst of a global pandemic….this abomination of a show is the worst thing to happen.”
No, you're not hallucinating. SEXY BEASTS is a new dating show that uses cutting edge prosthetics to put true blind-date chemistry to the test. On Netflix, 21 July. pic.twitter.com/Puvz3wcD7p— Netflix UK & Ireland (@NetflixUK) June 23, 2021
