And it’s yet another new dating reality series on the way, this time over at NBC. They’ve given the greenlight to a series called Ready For Love, which is to be executive produced by Desperate Housewives alum Eva Longoria, and will be hosted by Giuliana and Bill Rancic, who have plenty of reality TV experience under their (probably adorably matching) belts.
The word on the greenlight comes from Deadline not long after Fox added George Lopez as the host for their latest entry into the dating show genre, Take Me Out.
NBC’s attempt at a new take on the dating show will bring in three bachelors, all of whom were personally selected by Eva Longoria. From there, it gets a little complex. Three matchmakers will take a total of twelve candidates (you can apply on Facebook if you’re looking to find love in front of the cameras), four for each of the three men. They’ll then move their hopefuls into a private home, where they’ll coach, mentor, primp, improve and otherwise try to make them attractive to the bachelor they’ve been matched with. They’ll date, get eliminated when the fail to connect with their guy, and eventually it will be down to three girls from whom the bachelor will select his dream woman.
The three guys up for grabs have already been chosen. They are a Dallas-based financier named Ben Patton, Tim Lopez, a musician from the band Plain White T’s who lives in Santa Barbara, and a Miami entrepreneur named Ernesto Arguello. What, does no one want to fight for the hand of a poor guy? Good luck on the romance, boys.
