If you were given the chance to meet your long distance significant other for the first time ever after months or years of trying, you’d jump at the chance wouldn’t you? Now how about if you had to meet them on a deserted island & spend an entire isolated week with them for your first meeting ever. Does that still sound appealing to you? Is it something you think you would do?
Well that’s precisely what the couples in A&E Network’s new TV series “Love Prison” have signed up to do. Love Prison is a new series that documents couples who are dating online, but have not yet meet in person.
The couples in the series have agreed to take their relationship to the next level and finally meet each other face-to-face for the very first time under the most unusual circumstances ever. They’ll be living together in a house on a deserted island for an entire week.
Each episode begins with an established online couple agreeing to test the strength of their relationship in the Love Prison. There, the series claims that the couples are forced to get to know each other the hard way since the “social experiment” will test the validity of online compatibility versus real-life chemistry.
They’ll have zero access to technology, must spend 23-hours a day indoors together and are barraged by surprise interruptions and video interviews that dig deep into their “pasts.”
After the week is up, the couples get to decide whether they will stay together or call off their relationship altogether. A really interesting concept, wouldn’t you agree?
What are your thoughts on Love Prison? Is good or bad for the perception of long distance couples who have never met? Would you take part in this series?
