The first ever bisexual reality dating show is coming to the UK and Ireland this fall. Set in Barcelona, The Bi Life will see a group of bisexual+ (bisexual, pansexual, fluid, etc) or questioning British singles live together, share their everyday experiences on bisexual dating and support each other while looking for love in Europe’s LGBTQI+ capital.
The 10-part series, airing on E!, will be hosted by Shane Jenek – stage name Courtney Act – the Australian drag queen and former Ru Paul's Drag Race contestant who won Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year. “It's high time there was a dating show for the large number of young people today, like me, who are attracted to more than one gender,” Jenek told E!. “In 2018 we know that sexuality is fluid and sharing the stories and experiences, the laughter and the love making, of young bi people is so important.”
True Love or True Lies is a recent series that ran on MTV featuring same-sex couples alongside heterosexual matchings – in each episode, the pairs would pick who they believed to be fake.
The Bi Life, produced by London-based Monkey, will air in UK and Ireland in October.
