All-New Dating Series Coupled, Following the Return of Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell, Tuesday, May 17, on FOX
COUPLED, the all-new unscripted dating series produced by Emmy Award winner Mark Burnett (“Survivor,” “The Voice”), will premiere Tuesday, May 17 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the Season Three premiere of HOTEL HELL (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Hosted by entertainment personality Terrence “J” Jenkins, COUPLED follows 12 single, smart and young professional women looking for love, who will meet face-to-face with eligible single men against the beautiful backdrop of the Caribbean islands. The women have first choice as they instantly decide if they feel a spark of chemistry and want to spend more time with each guy, or if they don’t feel a connection and want to wait for the next one. The real soap opera unfolds as new couples are formed and have to discover whether or not they have the compatibility to make their relationships last. COUPLED will also feature the one thing that all modern romances have in common – texting. The women and men are armed with cell phones throughout the series, giving the audience a front row seat to the real drama, as their text conversations pop up on screen.
Season Three of HOTEL HELL kicks off with award-winning chef and hospitality expert Gordon Ramsay traveling the country to Ft. Pierce, FL; Island Park, ID; Harpers Ferry, WV; Southbridge, MA; Newton, PA; Chelan, WA; and Loudonville, OH, to experience struggling hotel establishments firsthand. Ramsay will delve deep into the inner workings of each business – from their management practices, staff chemistry and morale to cleanliness, food and décor – as he attempts to get these establishments on the right track. He will tackle a hotel owner who hoards clothing in the locked closets of the guests’ rooms; a historic inn, where shocking rumors about the owners have left their rooms empty; and a family-built castle, that has fallen on the shoulders of the ex-wife. Some owners will work with Ramsay to address the issues he’s identified, while others will refuse to take the advice they sought out, and face the consequences. In the end, it will be up to the owners and their staff to work together to keep their hotels open.
COUPLED is produced by MGM Television and Grandma’s House Entertainment. The series is created and executive-produced by Mark Burnett, Tom Shelly, Ben Newmark, Dan Newmark and Larry Barron.
