Netflix Announces Bizarre New Dating Show Sexy Beasts

This is the trailer for a new Netflix series called Sexy Beasts, which sees contestants go on dates in full make-up and rather bizarre prosthetics:

Loading…

The show has been described as a mash-up between The Masked Singer - where people take to the stage to sing in full costume while a panel of celebrities try to guess who is behind the 'mask' - and Love Is Blind, the social experiment brought to us by Netflix which sees single men and women get engaged before meeting IRL.

Basically, Sexy Beasts is going to be wonderfully weird and we can't wait.

Oh, and if you wanted more of a reason to tune in, Catastrophe star Rob Delaney will be narrating the show.

Two seasons have already been signed up - the trailer shows the singletons heading out on dates (in public) dressed as scarecrows, dolphins and pandas. Some costumes are little more... 'out-of-this-world', shall we say.

The clip shows contestants going on first dates - bowling and heading for drinks, that sort of thing.

One lucky couple even went to a theme park before sharing a cheeky, albeit tricky-looking smooch. What a logistical nightmare this must have been:

It seems people are already excited to tune in and have a look at Sexy Beasts, which will drop on the streaming service on 21 July.

Clear the calendar.

Replying to Netflix's trailer drop on Twitter, one person wrote: "Seems like a WONDERFUL idea! Especially since blind dates and dating in general isn't awkward enough."

Another added: "God, it's so ridiculous & it's gonna be such a huge hit."

A third person seemed to know how the premise of the show came about, as they replied: "Two guys sitting on couch, one takes a long drag on a joint and says, 'I know, we'll mix The Masked Singer with The Bachelor.' Passes the joint and next one takes a long drag, 'That's f***ing brilliant.' Both cough and have an awkward high five."

Others didn't seem too keen, however, with one writing: "My favourite thing about these shows is that the person underneath is always super conventionally attractive, so it ultimately undermines the entire f***ing concept cuz you can guarantee whoever you're looking at is good looking underneath, therefore ruining any impact."

Another simply commented: "You know, sometimes ideas should just stay in your head."

Hey, nothing is for everyone.
