“The cool thing is that we’re not making a big deal of it,” Cohen says of the casting.
Despite all of the new additions, Fleiss and Darnell say the core of “Love Connection” is still there, especially due to the “he-said-she-said” element.
“He really belongs with NBC because of Bravo,” Darnell shares, “but he wanted to do it so badly that he went all the way to the top to get permission.” Aside from Cohen’s flair, the show will feel a bit different to original viewers with the implementation of modern-day changes such as the splashy set, a 1-10 ratings scale, and a money prize where contestants choose love or money at the end of each episode.
Plus, in addition to having a gay host, the contestants are much more diverse than the flagship show with interracial couples, gay couples, straight couples, young couples, and elderly couples.
“When you’re talking to your girlfriends, you’re talking about your perception. That’s the magic.” “Love Connection” is coming at a time when the return of classic game shows seems to be the new TV trend with “0,000 Pyramid,” “Match Game,” “Celebrity Family Feud,” “Battle of the Network Stars,” and “The Gong Show” all at ABC and the upcoming “Joker’s Wild” hosted by Snoop Dogg at TBS.
