TV show description:
Hosted by Rossi Moreale, this reality series tries to answer the age-old qestoion, “Is Love Blind?”

In each episode, three single men and three single women move into a house together. They’re totally sequestered from the opposite sex but are all looking for love. While they have no chance of seeing each other in the light, they do have the opportunity to date in a completely dark room. Looks are taken out of the equation as the men and women get to know each other and form bonds in total darkness.

The singles meet up every day in the darkroom — first as a group, then one on one. They talk and listen, touch and smell. Share thoughts and feelings, fears and secrets. And, to complete the picture, they also get a clue about each other outside the darkroom: photos of their homes, or being able to check out their luggage — anything that conveys information about the single. And of course, all of their experiences are discussed in detail in each side of the house, with rivalries flaring up when two people set their sights on the same person.

After several days of meeting others in the darkroom, the participants select the one member of the opposite sex that they want to see revealed in the light. For the first time, the participants see whom they’ve been dating. Will the person’s looks live up their expectation? After they’ve finally seen each other in the light for the first time, they each have to make a difficult decision. Do they want to get to know each other even better, or do they walk away?
