Did you for a second think that Too Hot To Handle and Love Is Blind were the strangest dating shows out there? Think again.
Because Netflix just released trailer for a new dating show where Masked Singer meets Love Is Blind, called Sexy Beasts. On which strangers dress up as ‘beasts’ and go on blind dates.
Yes, we’re not making this up. It’s real. They go bowling, mix drinks and even go to the gun range, dressed as pandas and chipmunks and whatnot.
These prosthetics sure seem to make the dating experience ‘exotic’.
So do you know what the contestants look like in real life? Not until you pick your partner. Who obviously will be gorgeous because Netflix’s dating shows only have conventionally good-looking people.
This show is all about falling in love with the ‘personality’.

Twitter obviously has some very interesting things to say about the show:
Thank you! That’s always been my issue with these shows.— Chris Hodges (aka StealthMantis) (@TheChiScroller) June 23, 2021
“I was so nervous. I wasn’t sure if she was going to be a 10 or just a 9! I didn’t know if she’d have the body of a supermodel or just a regular model!”
right! unless they sprinkle in some contestants who aren’t “conventionally attractive”, what’s the point? i mean…is there a point to this nonsense? is this real life?— D. Smith (@ddsmitty1) June 23, 2021
#1 those shows are all very expensive, this show looks like it cost a couple of days and $20— Cabe (@CabeyCabe) June 23, 2021
#2 horseshit is a challenge in this show so no spoilers.
And for people asking, yes – this was a BBC Three show years ago 😂 pic.twitter.com/xMjR20w5EO— Tom Glenwright (@Tom_Glenwright) June 23, 2021
Even Looney Tunes couldn’t help but cash in
LOONEY TUNES NO! LOOK AWAY!— Great gravy of Jehoshaphat! (@nerdgeekman) June 23, 2021
The show is based on a U.K. series, which already had two seasons and Netflix just decided to take it up a notch. We won’t say we hate the idea because it sure does look entertaining.
