, hosted by Chuck Woolery, is a charming relic of the video-dating era, with singles choosing a date from three options and reporting back to Woolery how it went. Each date recap plays out like the original, with the main contestant sitting next to Andy and their date chiming in via video chat. (Remember the franchise) in front of a hooting studio audience.“I think it’s just kind of this post-gay world that we live in, where it’s just another part of this dating show.” The choice to include gay singles was Cohen’s idea, the reports, and the suggestion was met with an emphatic yes.“The more visibility, the better,” Cohen continued. I think it’s great.” More than anything, Cohen said that this go around, viewers can expect more diversity and variety in the contestants and their stories.
We’ve got a man who is in his 70’s who went on his first Tinder date, but the woman stood him up so we set him up with three dates.
While that ,000 is a nice prize, Cohen also revealed an important upgrade for the show: this go around, there will be plenty of gay contestants.
“It’s 2017, and they should just be treated the exact same way as I’m treating everyone else,” Cohen told the about the gay and lesbian contestants.
Chuck Woolery – two years removed from hosting what would become America's all-time favorite game show, "Wheel of Fortune" – presided over the fun.

Woolery conducted a brief interview before the audience was shown video excerpts, which the contestant had previously seen in their entirety, of three potential dates of the opposite sex.
