People Who Have Been On (Or Applied To) A Reality Dating Show, What Was Your Experience Like?

You may be familiar with Love is Blind and The Bachelor, but reality TV dating shows have been around for a long time. (In fact, The Dating Game, the first dating show of this genre, premiered in 1965 on ABC!) And TBH, I'm very curious to know what it's actually like to be on one.

So, if you've ever been on a reality dating show — whether it was recent or years ago — we want to hear your experience.

Like, maybe you have some entertaining behind-the-scenes stories, and you can share the wildest thing that happened or exactly what the show was like for you.

Perhaps you were scouted on social media for a show — as Love Island and other shows have done — and you can share some juicy secrets about the process.

Or maybe you just applied to the show and didn't actually end up on it — but you can share some interesting questions or details from your interview or application.

Or perhaps you were on a dating show where you ended up meeting someone, and you can share what happened to your relationship afterward.
