For those who have never watched the reality series before, the show sets up contestants to marry strangers. The contestants are actually paired with “matchmaking specialists.” They take out the ones who are there for the wrong reasons, and choose the ones who are interested in finding love. Then the shows “love experts,” attempt to match these lovesick contestants who are most compatible for each other. The paired couples only have less than two weeks before the wedding. They have to throw their own bachelor/bachelorette party, find their wedding attire and attempt to have all of their guests attend this last minute event. As the hopeful contestants shop, they’re always shown as excited until what they have signed up for settles in.
