Did you think “On the Wings of Love” was a ridiculous name for the new season of “The Bachelor”? Wait til you see what ABC is planning on airing after the “Bachelor” premiere.
ABC announced on Wednesday (Dec. 9) that following the Jan. 4 premiere of “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” the network will premiere the hour-long special “Conveyor Belt of Love.”
Yes, conveyor belts, so reliable at delivering cut-rate sushi and mishandled luggage, will no be a transportation system for romance, thanks to the good people at Endemol USA.
What, pray tell, is “Conveyor Belt of Love” all about?
We prefer to let ABC explain.
ABC’s booking release says, “In this hilarious and fast-paced one-hour special, one by one the 30 men are presented on the ‘Conveyor Belt of Love’ to the five women and given 60 seconds to impress them. If a woman is interested in someone, that man will step aside and wait as the rest of the men go by. But if another man comes by on the belt who seems better than that woman”s first choice, she can swap out the man waiting off of the belt as many times as she wants until the last man has passed by. If two or more of the women are interested in the same man, the tables turn and the man on the conveyor belt gets to choose which one he would like to wait for. After all 30 men have made it through the ‘Conveyor Belt of Love,’ each woman is left with her final choice as she embarks on a date in the hope of finding a true connection. Will these five women be happy with their choices?”
The special is executive-produced by Tom Shelly and it’s expected that should viewers respond to the special, it could become a regular de-lover-y service.
Get it? De-lover-y?
