FYI's "Kiss Bang Love" will be the Official Kiss Sponsor of New Year's Eve in Times Square
To celebrate the Tuesday, January 3 series premiere of FYI's "Kiss Bang Love," the network will bring the TV show to life on one the greatest stages in the world, during New Year's Eve celebrations in Times Square. FYI will recreate a condensed version of "Kiss Bang Love," where participants will kiss potential matches while blindfolded. Single men and one bachelorette will take part in a live version of the sexy and smart social experiment in front of NYE revelers on the Kiss Stage, displayed on LED screens throughout Times Square. "Kiss Bang Love" will serve as the official NYE kiss sponsor.
What's crazier than kissing a stranger while blindfolded? Getting married at first sight! Married couples from season one of FYI's "Married at First Sight," Jamie Otis & Doug Hehner and Cortney Hendrix & Jason Carrion, will be joining "Kiss Bang Love" participants on the stage throughout the night.
"Kiss Bang Love" - Premieres January 3 at 10pm ET on FYI
Singles searching for love will participate in a new social experiment to explore whether blind physical chemistry can pre-determine romantic success. Each episode will follow a new man or woman as they meet ten potential matches and ultimately choose their favorite based on kissing while blindfolded, associated sensory perceptions and intimate conversations. Two final matches will go on romantic dates before a final decision is made and sealed with a kiss. The series is hosted by relationship and communication expert, Rachel DeAlto, who will provide guidance and advice to the singles throughout the experiment.
