It's shocking to me that this got any high marks at all. The concept seems cool, a blind date in front of an audience.
But frankly, it wasn't funny or insightful. Reagan, the girl, was adorable. But she also felt like plant. This was even more plausible because she is a professed actress. There is no way these two would ever go on a date in real life. It felt bogus.
But the worse thing was that it felt absolutely nothing like a date. I mean, there was no sexual energy or real conversation that normal first dates would have. It was more like two "strangers" trying to make small talk in front of an audience.
If it were an actually date, there would have been so many questions about past relationships, past dates, etc. For example, nobody ever said, "How long have you been on the dating apps?" Nobody ever asked about anything REAL. Nobody delved into philosophy or religion or sexual experiences. Typically on a real date, it is interesting to find out if the person is the same religion or has similar passions or quirks.
It felt like the 5 star reviews were merely from friends.
Again, Reagan is extremely charming and adorable and she will probably have an awesome acting career. But this was definitely not the vehicle.
