Turning thirty and surrounded by married couples, Bethany Parks does something she never thought she’d try—reality TV dating. Although finding love would be nice, she’s mostly looking for a fun distraction. Bethany thinks she’s prepared for aggressive cameras and competitive flirting, but this is a show like no other. The provided wardrobe is a collection of the worst fashion trends of all time, and even more disturbing, they’ve brought on everyone’s exes, including Todd, her most recent dating mistake. He’s the last person in the world she wants to mingle with while sporting ‘mom’ jeans. Things aren’t all bad. Her new buddy Tyson has her back, and Bethany can’t keep her eyes off the gorgeous and mysterious Carter. She knows right away she’ll have to protect her heart, because on a show like this, the worst thing might actually be falling in love.
So, the funny thing is, I replaced my TV habit a few years ago with reading and writing. But back in the day, I did love me some reality TV. And there have been some really strange one-season dating shows. I don’t know if anyone remembers Secret Princes, Joe Millionaire, or Married by America. Even careful editing can’t take out the awkward hilarity of it all. I wanted to be in the head of one of these poor contestants. But I also wanted her to find love along the way.
