‘Sexy Beasts’: A New Take On A Dating Show

Netflix’s new dating show, Sexy Beasts, takes a look at what happens when looks are off the table, in a way you would never expect!

Sexy Beasts is arguably one of the weirdest shows I have seen.

Each episode starts off with an introduction to our eligible bachelor or bachelorette in Masked Singer-Esque makeup and costuming. Then they explain why they’re there and what they’re looking for.

Spoiler alert: most of them value looks in a relationship.

Then, we’re introduced to the three contestants vying to be the sexy beast. All three are dressed in equally as strange costumes and makeup.

As far as reality dating shows go, it’s not bad. We know that the people who go on a dating show are there to find love in an unconventional way. And if they find love through this, who are we to mock them?

One of the best things about the show is that you get the reveal for everyone in one episode. No storyline is carried over, so if you’re impatient like me, your questions about who is chosen and what everyone looks like are answered neatly in one-half hour.

This causes issues though, as I found myself wanting to see more of the relationships unfold in a longer time period.

If the show comes back for a season 2, I hope that the episodes are an hour long to give us more time with each contestant, but still settle everything within the episode so we feel satisfied.

If you’re looking for a goofy and different take on a dating show and have half an hour to kill to watch an episode, check out Sexy Beasts on Netflix!
