Is ‘Sexy Beasts’ Netflix’s Strangest Dating Show to Date?
Netflix’s new dating show Sexy Beasts sent the internet buzzing when it’s trailer premiered last month. People dressed as lizards, dinosaurs and pandas going on blind dates without seeing each other’s faces? It has to be one of Netflix’s strangest reality shows yet — and that’s saying something.
Sexy Beasts is actually a revival of a dating show which aired on the BBC in 2014. This time around the show will be hosted by comedian Rob Delaney, as participants are put in some extraordinary animal prosthetics before going on a number of blind dates. Will they be able to find love behind the furry faces? Is this somehow another way to define “meeting cute?” And how will the show compare to the rest of the Netflix dating show stable?
True, Sexy Beasts is a most unusual addition to the genre, but below, we ranked the streaming service’s many dating series—based on how unique their premise is.
