TV show description:
Hosted by Darren McMullen, this dating reality series puts relationships to the ultimate test. It starts with 10 single men and 10 single women who are all looking for love. These singles have tried to find that special someone in all of the traditional ways and now, they’re headed deep into the remote jungles of Costa Rica.
In each episode, couples pair up in exhilarating challenges that push their bodies and emotions to the limit. Their quests include paddling down crocodile-ridden waters, navigating through bat-infested caves, and hanging 200 feet above the rain forest floor as they descend down one of the most majestic waterfalls in Costa Rica. The exploits put their relationships to the test as they fall for each other in ways they never imagined.
After each adventure, the winning couple gets to share a night together at the Oasis — a lavish, five-star bungalow that has everything they could possibly desire for an intimate night of romance. The remaining couples stay with their partners in the far less-luxurious “cabins” where they gather for a night of socializing perhaps even a little scheming.
For a tough elimination, all of the couples come together to reveal whether a connection has been formed with their current partner or if they’d rather switch and get to know someone else. At the end of every episode, two heartbroken singles are be sent home. The season culminates with just one couple left standing, a pair who’ve found “Love in the Wild.”
Kenneth “Ken” Barrington of Miami Beach, Florida and Yanina Beccaria of Chicago, Illinois won the grand prize.
First aired: July 24, 2012.
