About “Kiss Bang Love”
Research shows that the physical act of kissing is a powerful tool in our search for the right partner. “Kiss Bang Love” puts this to the test by inviting a group of single people to skip awkward dates and trust chemistry to find the love of their lives.
In each episode one singleton enters a simple studio setting and kisses a group of single guys or girls. Blindfolded. They are selected by relationship experts and friends of the single person. Most are strangers. Some are acquaintances. Others may be former lovers.
After choosing the five best kisses, they meet again for a second kiss - this time without the blindfold. Now looks and first impressions also count. They then have to select two of the five for a crucial part of the experiment that is designed to be intimate, romantic and seductive: in a luxury hotel our participant spends one night with each of the two partners. But will their dates go off with a bang? Following the two dates it is time for the final decision. Who will they choose to take on a romantic holiday? And will a kiss from a stranger lead to love?
