“When you’re talking to your girlfriends, you’re talking about your perception. That’s the magic.” “Love Connection” is coming at a time when the return of classic game shows seems to be the new TV trend with “0,000 Pyramid,” “Match Game,” “Celebrity Family Feud,” “Battle of the Network Stars,” and “The Gong Show” all at ABC and the upcoming “Joker’s Wild” hosted by Snoop Dogg at TBS.

But Fleiss says the revamped “Love Connection” is not a game show.

As far as spending time goes, they were spotted together on numerous vacations and seem to love spending time with each other.

“He really belongs with NBC because of Bravo,” Darnell shares, “but he wanted to do it so badly that he went all the way to the top to get permission.” Aside from Cohen’s flair, the show will feel a bit different to original viewers with the implementation of modern-day changes such as the splashy set, a 1-10 ratings scale, and a money prize where contestants choose love or money at the end of each episode.

“I don’t think that would have happened years ago,” Cohen admits.

“One thing we really wanted to preserve was not being there on the date because what made the show so charming was the he-said-she-said,” Darnell explains of the format, which focuses largely on the daters chatting with Cohen on set about their date, rather than having footage of the actual date like other dating shows, including “The Bachelor.” However, each couple does take a selfie video during their date, which is shown to the live audience.

“I didn’t want actual producers out there with actual video because then the he-said-she-said doesn’t mean anything,” he says.
