Channel 4 has commissioned a new entertainment game show The Love Trap, from Great Scott Media, the team behind Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle.
Hosted by Joel Dommett, the new reality game show will explore how hard it is to know who to trust in the modern world of dating.
Subverting familiar dating show tropes, The Love Trap will see twelve women all compete over a series of dates to win the affection of one single man.
However, only half of the women will be hoping to win the bachelor’s heart. The other six will be hoping to stay in the game with the hope of winning a huge cash prize.
The bachelor will be tested on his ability to spot a genuine connection. At the end of each episode, he will have to eliminate one lady who he suspects is a ‘love trap’. The love trap will then be dumped, quite literally, through a trap door.
Joel Dommett commented: “Super proud to announce I’ll be presenting the new series, Love Trap on Channel 4! I love lying, love, and trap doors so it’s all I’ve ever wanted. It’s genuinely a huge idea and I’m excited that they have trusted me at the helm.”
Channel 4’s factual entertainment commissioner Lee McMurray added: “Like Cluedo for love, everyone will get to play along at home in this hugely entertaining new format, which tests character and commitment in a fresh way.”
