Fox tv dating show
Terrence Jenkins — better-known as “Think Like a Man” actor Terrence J — says he’s ready for the challenge of hosting “Coupled,” the new Fox reality dating show premiering May 17.“We wanted to give the power to the women, which is what makes this show different,” he says.“That’s one of the things that makes this show different as well.
He co-hosted BET’s “106 & Park” (2006-2012) then went on to host E! Though he says he wants to focus more on his film career — and produced the big-screen movie “Perfect Match” — he says he couldn’t say no when Burnett came calling. “Mark is very persuasive, so I took the job on the first call and I was off to Anguilla to film.” The setup on “Coupled” is to have the men arrive from helicopters and speedboats.“So there are so many moments to watch, because you get the broad spectrum of dating and love.” And, with the added ammunition of cell phones given to the bachelorettes and bachelors, viewers are able to see the exchange of text messages between the daters.“We gave everyone a cell phone so they can text back and forth to each other and we watch how they become creative and how they interpret the date,” Jenkins says.is averaging 4.4 million viewers in multiplatform audience, says Fox, and has a substantial social following as well.On the episode airing Thursday, July 13, Mariah Carey stops by to surprise the contestants during the “Divas” round.
