    #1 show this week on Netflix, surprised there is no thread. this show is crazier than the Bachelor, couples getting engaged without seeing each other and weddings within a month.

    the fight between the black couple was pretty epic when he failed to tell her he was bi before he proposed :)

    I've watched 8 of the 9 episodes, the weddings episode drops Thursday

    Howard Stern has been talking about it. He loves it.

    Is it comparable to Married at First Sight? I watched season 1 of that.

    not exactly. in that show I think the couples were paired by experts. Here, they talk to others behind closed doors and develop an emotional bond, and only then do they get engaged, and then they see each other for the first time AFTER they are engaged. sounds insane and it kinda is, but you root for some of them and others you are like no way they will go through with it

    also first reality show I've ever seen rated TV-MA. Hilarious to see F bombs being dropped during inevitable squabbles, not used to that on reality shows

    I only predicted 3 of the 5 results of marriage or break ups. Was filmed in 2018 so reunion show next week will be interesting

    Fun fact regarding the number of proposals:

    So there were a total of 15 men and 15 women. Apparently the producers expected about 1 or 2 proposals, but just in case, planned on a maximum of 5 proposals. But there ended up being a total of 8 proposals! So the producers told two of the couples they wouldn't be continuing, even though they proposed, leaving us with the six we saw.

    Would you say the show is better than at least the 1st season of Married at First Sight?

    Maybe he didn't say it to her, but he said it in the pods to someone. I've been thinking about rewatching the first couple of episodes.

    I rewatched Ep 1. He's shown discussing his sexual history in the confessional but he never mentions it to her. The confessional clip is shown in one of the pod meetings when he could have brought it up.
