Excused dating show host
Since it is scripted, you get to watch total hacks act, not a pleasant sight. I won't say this show is never fun, but fun is rare enough to make you want change the channel.
You also get to watch the host high-five the contestants.
It seems like everyone is chosen to be dumber than the host, who is attractive, sharp, and charming, and also fairly cruel and clinical.
Her role is to play superior to it all, which can't help the fact that she's knee deep in the sleaze-fest.
In the first round, two contestants (either two males or two females; for the second season, episodes in which male contestants choose female suitors are less commonly seen) are introduced and are asked by host Shlesinger about what they look for in a mate.
Originally, the contestants then had to decide which potential suitors that they wanted to let in by watching a feed from a security camera located outside the front door of the house to give their first impression by explaining why they should be given the chance to date the contestants; often, Shlesinger will give snarky commentary to the potential suitors whether they are chosen to enter the house or not.

The half-hour series is hosted by comedian Iliza Shlesinger and created by David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe for Renegade 83 Productions (the same company that produced Blind Date) and CBS Television Distribution.
The series, announced in May during Turner’s upfront presentation in New York, is being produced by 5×5 Media and Electus.
is executive-produced by 5×5 Media’s Craig Armstrong, Rick Ringbakk and Charles Wachter, and Electus’ Chris Grants.
In the first season, the contestants would travel by van to different locations in Los Angeles for the first four dates.
In some episodes, the elimination from four to three contestants would take place at the location of the dates in a face-to-face encounter.
I wont even compare it to Cheaters, which is truly engaging, but also setup.
