Marry The Mole with The Bachelor.
Now that would be fun. ;)
Beauty and the Geek and the early seasons of The Apprentice were really interesting to me. I think people can get to know more about each other when they are focusing on a project rather than just trying to hook-up.
The most interesting part of this season and all seasons, to me, is the get together of the girls from Brad's season and the guys from De's season. I think reunion shows would be terrific with 12 guys and 12 girls.
They could participate in Habitat for Humanity
prepare meals for soup kitchens
work in day-care centers
take elderly people to the horse races.
Once they got to know each other, then they could go on some exotic locations and let romance develop, but at least they would have a better idea of what kind of person they were dealing with.
No eliminations for the first four weeks. After that if no sparks are flying then non-couples would be sent home, but it doesn't have to end with only one couple. Any who develop a relationship that is strong enough to continue past filming would be considered winners.
These shows could be done regionally so that distance doesn't work against them.
Edit for previous post:
remove "Brad" insert "Matt"
