A dating series that premieres in the next few weeks tests the old adage that love is blind. The three-part TLC series “Hear Me, Love Me, See Me,” launching Saturday, March 3, attempts to take physical attraction out of the equation.
Hosted by actress Christine Lakin, the show “encourages those looking for love to focus on getting to know potential suitors before they see what they look like,” TLC says in an announcement for the series.
“Over the course of just one day, an eligible bachelorette will meet three bachelors, using only POV cameras strapped to the men’s chests. She’ll get to see everything they see and talk directly to them — but neither will see what the other person looks like,” the announcement says. “Each of the three potential matches will plan special ‘dates’ that highlight their individuality and give the lucky lady a chance to date their life — from introducing her to their parents to taking her to work, these guys will work overtime to prove that they are the one she should pick. At the end of the day, the woman must decide who has won her heart based solely on lifestyle, personality and their emotional chemistry. After making her final decision, she will meet all three men face-to-face, and only then is it revealed to her which man she chose. The new couple will go on a date and determine if they truly do connect.”
The announcement adds: “The three women who boldly take the risk of blindly searching for love, include: Merissa, 27, whose dating pattern consists of bad boys but is looking for someone who will be accepting of both her and her five-year-old daughter; Kacey, 28, who freaked out when she learned that her twin sister had found ‘the one’ and can’t understand why she’s still single; and Jade, 37, who ended her last relationship when her ex confessed he didn’t want kids and now she feels that her baby clock is ticking.”
Based on a successful international format, “Hear Me, Love Me, See Me” is produced by 495 Productions.
