Would you go on a first date with your sibling present?
To all the reality dating show fans out there, Netflix has released a new dating show called Dated and Related. The premise of this show is similar to other existing shows such as Love Island and Too Hot To Handle, with an odd twist where contestants go onto the show with their sibling.
The contestants of the show enter a villa with their sibling with the hope of finding love for themselves, as well as their siblings. It is a chance for siblings to wingman their siblings, and allows contestants to find love without worrying about whether their family will approve of their partner or not. This also allows contestants to have the emotional support of their family, whilst going through the emotional rollercoaster of dating on a reality TV show.
This strange twist creates many awkward scenarios, such as third-wheeling your sibling on a first date, watching them flirt with or make moves on people they are interested in, and being around someone who has hurt your sibling. Overall, it is just a completely awkward situation to put yourself in.
So why would anyone want to do this? For some, it is the hope of finding love which they have been unsuccessful with up to date, and for others, it is the winning prize of $100,000 (RM454,550). And why would anyone want to watch this? The drama. And trust us when we say that, there’s a lot of it.
