The new dating story tlc

In the clip, the singles express their excitement at potentially finding their soulmate in the luxurious mansion. A male contestant adds, “It’s absolutely crazy, but I’ll do anything I can to find love."However, it seems not all goes according to plan for the romantic hopefuls.

As seen in the clip, at least one proposal is rejected and many contestants appear visibly distraught throughout the series.

We even get a glimpse of the "bachelor" and "bachelorette" parties -- although these, like the dates, get "cleaned up" for The Learning Channel.

The men golf or do equally harmless "guy stuff," while the women have a "spa day" with massages and manicures.

Perhaps people are learning something from TLC, but are they learning anything worthwhile?
