Tv dating show
Why enjoy a normal ol' blind date when you could go on a blind date chaperoned by your ex?
That was the concept behind —effectively increasing the awkwardness of the blind date tenfold.
It’s not that is a partnership between Condé Nast Entertainment and Facebook, made for Facebook’s recently launched Watch video feed.
(The show itself is not shot in virtual reality.) As you may have guessed from the title, each episode sets up a blind date between two strangers who are wearing HTC Vive headsets, then... If, as many people have suggested, VR is a bit like drugs, then inaugural couple is Shelby, a hedge fund office administrator looking for “someone who can make me laugh.” The second is John, a soccer coach who wants “someone to capitalize on my own happiness, and vice versa, whatever that looks like.” Sorry, I don’t really know what that looks like, either.
Halfway through the double date, the contestants would switch partners.
And by the end, they were asked who they'd like to date: partner 1, partner 2, or neither.
We've taken a moment to reflect on 17 of the niche romantic reality TV series that captured our hearts and captivated our minds (likely, for all the wrong reasons). Five women stood by as a conveyor belt of hot guys passed them (no, I'm not kidding).
Midway through, the show cuts back to Bronson to hear his commentary on how it’s going.
At the end of each episode, he’ll try to predict if the couple will go on another date or not.“Vice and Snap have had an amazing long-term partnership,” said Sterling Proffer, svp and head of business strategy and development for Vice Media.
(I’m guessing this is why they’re using the Vive instead of Facebook’s own Oculus Rift, since one set of Vive trackers can serve multiple headsets.) The ostensible entertainment is watching people flail around with rubbery limbs, joking about how weird they look in VR.
Sometimes the avatars turn into dinosaurs or get whisked to a lunar landscape, and you can watch them joke about how weird is in VR.
