‘The Real Love Boat’ Release Date Update: It’s time to sail the seven seas (or just the Mediterranean Sea) for The Real Love Boat, a new dating show. The reality show, which is based on the classic series The Love Boat, which aired from 1977 to 1987, takes place on a luxury cruise line.
Real-life singles are paired up for a chance at love. They’ll be put through tasks along the road to determine their compatibility and chemistry.
One lucky couple will make it to the end and receive a cash reward and a luxury Princess Cruise vacation. A chance to discover both love and money? Why didn’t we register for this?
The United States isn’t the only country to receive The Real Love Boat. Australia is producing its own version for Channel 10 that will include Hannah Ferrier from Bravo’s Below Deck Mediterranean. The idea stays the same, and the action will take place on the Mediterranean Sea as well.
When Does CBS’s ‘Love Boat’ Premiere? What’s The Main Plot?
The Real Love Boat will air on CBS on Wednesday, October 5, at 9 p.m. ET. Following the premiere, the show will air weekly at the same hour.
“The debut episode sets sail as hosts Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell greet five single women and five single men who are ready to discover love and begin the journey of a lifetime aboard the Regal Princess Cruise Ship,” according to the synopsis for the first episode.
After seeing the beautiful city of Barcelona, the singles are thrust into the season’s first challenge – a talent exhibition in which they must wow possible partners!”
“But all is not well when two new males board and crash a cocktail party,” it continues. The episode finishes with the Sail Away Ceremony, in which the women each choose who has caught their eye and will stay aboard the ship, while the remainder will ‘Shove Off’ and be left at port.”
“Special guest star Ted Lange, whose legendary character Isaac helped singles find love in the original 1970s scripted series The Love Boat, hands the figurative cocktail shaker to the new Crew who will help singles navigate romance on the high seas,” according to the show’s description.
Every episode, fresh singles will join the boat, similar to Bachelor in Paradise. They will visit Santorini, Rome, Barcelona, and other locations. After a month on the ship, the last pair standing will receive a monetary award as well as a cruise.
