For the most part the lame daters provide more than enough entertainment. The three days are condensed into a half hour psychological experiment. The couples almost always get along well the first day, but later there is often the friction that comes from spending too much time with someone.

Chris Hardwick’s dead-pan humor is perfect for the show. The show is obviously for entertainment sake, and he doesn’t try to take himself or the show too seriously.

Season two promises an even more eclectic group of participants, including a former NFL cheerleader who gets into a wrestling match with a fitness trainer from Fresh Meadows, a cop who takes a beautiful nutritionist swimming with sting rays and a stockbroker who wins the heart of a sexy kindergarten teacher.
