Everything You Need to Know About The Proposal Australia
From marrying someone you have only just met to going on a date in the dark, Australia has already seen its fair share of decidedly extreme reality dating shows. But, Channel Seven is set to take things to a whole thing level with its upcoming show, The Proposal. Yes, as the name suggests, the show will see contestants go from strangers to potential fiancés . . . all within the space of an hour.
Here's the 4-1-1 on exactly how it will all work. In each super-charged episode, we will be introduced to a suitor or suitress who is willing to either propose or be proposed to before the show is over. Competing for their hearts will be eight singles, all of whom are also open to making the ultimate commitment.
The catch is, while the suitor or suitress can see each of the singles from the get-go, the singles will not be able to see the suitor or suitress until much later in the proceedings. Instead, they will rely only on voice in order to get to know their possible fiancés.
The contestants will make their way through four rounds, with two singles being eliminated with each phase. In chronological order, the rounds consist of first impressions, a beach date, a discussion of deal breakers and a meeting of family members. Lastly, after surviving all of the rounds, the final two singles will progress to finally meeting their suitor or suitress face-to-face. From there, the moment of truth has arrived, and either the suitor/suitress or one of the singles will propose. The big question is, will their offer be accepted?
As outlandish as the premise may sound, the first season of the US version had a surprisingly high success rate, with four of ten couples staying together post-show. Our Australian version is set to be hosted by Channel Seven mainstay Luke Jacobz, fresh from his stint on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.
The show is set to premiere August 27, and we can almost guarantee it will cause quite the stir when it hit our screens.
