A one-sentence reaction to Love in the Wild, which could be summed up in two words: Paradise Hotel

NBC’s Love in the Wild is nowhere near Survivor or The Bachelor in terms of quality, drama, narrative, or character, and is really mostly a rip-off of Paradise Hotel’s format of couples pairing up and switching off with so-so challenges thrown in to add some adventure, although the oddly fake-looking visual appearance (like I’m a Celebrity, it looks like it was filmed on a soundstage, and everyone seems to be wearing makeup and have dramatic lighting) takes away most of the consequence and lets us focus on uncomfortable things like forced kissing—but the cast offers some ridiculousness that could eventually make the series fun, if we didn’t have Big Brother coming up to offer all the ridiculousness summer can handle.
