Channel Nine are calling on children of single parents to dob their mums and dads in for its newest dating show, Grown Up Love.
Recent advertisements from the network have called on “single parents aged 40 to 60” to apply or be nominated for Grown Up Love. And thank f*ck — maybe we’re finally getting the wholesome dating show we’ve all been waiting for!
“Hey team, I got emailed by ITV asking if I wanted to apply for their new show,” they said along with an attachment of the message.
The email wondered if the applicant was “between 18-25 and [has] a single parent” who needs “help finding a relationship”.
“Your parent will be sent on beautiful retreat with other like-minded single mum and dads,” it read.
Meanwhile, the children will be tasked with “creating social media content and video diaries about what it’s like wanting your parent to find love”. Interesting…
So, realistically, how genuine can it be?
Has Grown Up Love Been Successful Overseas?
While Grown Up Love in its current form hasn’t been seen internationally, some have said that it could be likened to the US’ My Mom, Your Dad.
The HBO Max series premiered in January 2022 and follows a bunch of single parents who move into a house together.
Behind the scenes, their “college-aged” kids serve as matchmakers during the experience.
Surely, they can’t do a worse job than the MAFS experts, right? RIGHT?!
