Coupled, the all-new unscripted dating series produced by Emmy Award winner Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Voice), and hosted by entertainment personality Terrence “J” Jenkins, 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.
Coupled was cast by Robyn Kass, the agent that picks the houseguests for Big Brother. 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.
