Idea for new reality TV show

One thing i've noticed about celebrity's is that they always stick to their own kind, meaning they stick to other celebs when it comes to dating and it almost always ends in tears and breakup.
My idea is to start a new TV show where celebs looking for love are given the opportunity to meet regular people and date them. Here's how it works:

The celebs fill out a form detailing their preferances and answer questions like their favourite food etc etc and what they like in a guy or gal etc etc and then everybody in the country can apply to date the celeb, each person fills out a form themselves and after the deadline is reached the TV show wittles down the list by matching who best suits the celeb until eventually there's only about 20 left. Those 20 people are background checked and if all is well they then go out on a date with the celeb. Each date is video recorded and broadcast to the populace as reality TV.

WICKED STUFF!

Well, if Paris Hilton can audition people to be her best friend...

But haven't we got enough reality television though?!

Already been done. You could at least come up with something original when you feel the need to ask for so much attention.

It was Jodie Marsh, looking for a husband back in 2007. It was called "Totally Jodie Marsh: Who'll Take Her Up the Aisle?" In the end, it turned out to be a faaaaake.

Well I didn't know about that but this is different. It's not about marriage and it's not just one celeb, it will be many celebs at a time and this one wont be fake!

We need to keep apart from each other by two posts. It's a new traffic-calming initiative being piloted in Misc.

And it seems to be working.


On the other hand, I don't know.

Pretty much a "Look at me!" tactic.

No, it's a "look at this thread" tactic, there's a difference.

Thanks for your opinion but what does the aesthetics of my thread title have to do with what the thread is about?

Nobody on celebrity love island are ordinary people going on dates with celebs. On Celebrity love island EVERYONE is a celeb.

Besides that it's nothing like what my idea is about. There has never ever been a TV show like the one i've described.
