New Channel 4 Dating Show Five Guys A Week Is Come Dine With Me Meets Love Island
| Last updated
If you're looking for a new dating show to sink your teeth into, then this could be the one.
Set to be released later this year, Five Guys A Week will do pretty much what it says on the tin; one woman will move into a house with five men and dump them one by one until she has the man of her dreams. Pretty brutal.
Over the course of a week, they will be put through a series of relationship tests, 'fast-tracking' the 'getting to know you' phase of a relationship, with the lads vying for the woman's affections.
According to an early description of Channel 4's new show, the men will go everywhere with their potential flame, 'whether that's to work, on a night out with mates, or for dinner with the parents'.
Speaking about the new series, Gilly Greenslade, factual entertainment commissioning editor for Channel 4, said: "This simple format goes well beyond the realm of a traditional dating show. The pilot was hugely entertaining, but also explored what people actually want from their partners as well as offering a revealing - and sometimes surprising - insight into the male psyche."
Label1 head of factual entertainment Barnaby Coughlin said it's a show that he feels will resonate with people around the world.
He said: "We're delighted to be going to series with Five Guys. It's a format that speaks to a universal concern - being loved - that will work in any language, in any country in the world where people long to find their soul mate."
If this sounds a little tame for your liking however, then fear not, because Channel 4 is also looking for contestants to star on Naked Attraction.
All you have to do is register on the show's site, fill out the application form, and you could appear in the upcoming series.
For those who don't know, Naked Attraction involves a group of nude guys and gals standing in cubicles. As the show goes on, the screens are lifted, first showing the persons genitals, then the chest, and finally the face - with one contestant eliminated at each stage.
When all but one have been eliminated, it is the contestant's turn to get their kit off. They then go on a date and see if there is any chemistry once they are fully clothed.
And who knows, if you are successful, you could become an overnight sensation.
