"Sometimes, I think that people swipe past the best thing out there," she tells Luke.And while the team emphasized diversity, there clearly needed to be compatibility in that respect."Obviously this show doesn’t have interchangeable daters," the producer points out. It’s a social experiment disguised as a dating show. The primary architecture of the show, too, adheres to a simple, if effective formula: throw a group of beautiful, sex-drunk souls into a house, add endless amounts of liquor, stir, and wait for the drama to spill over.
