Jul 26, 2016 by

by Stuart Heritage, Guardian: That’s it. There’s nowhere left for the dating show to go. Between TLC’s Undressed and Channel 4’s Naked Attraction, the entire genre feels like it’s reached its natural endpoint. We’ve had shows like Blind Date, where desirability is judged by personality.
