Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Perfect Score is a lighthearted dating competition with enough sexual innuendo to make it an iffy choice for younger viewers. The show isn't designed to be taken too seriously, but it often sends the message that looks and first impressions can be deceiving.

What's the story?

PERFECT SCORE is a game show that features players competing against each other for men and money. Hosted by Arielle Kebbel, the series features two friends who must choose their ideal mate from a select group of singles. The singles, who have taken the same compatibility test as the players, are assigned cash amounts based on their scores. The players must each take turns eliminating the singles they believe are the least compatible with from the game, but can only find out their cash (and compatibility) value once their decisions are made. The player who chooses the most compatible person worth the highest dollar amount from the remaining singles wins a date and the corresponding cash prize.

Is it any good?


The fast paced series leads to lots of laughs as contestants find themselves having to make fast decisions based on brief exchanges and silly pick up lines. But the funniest moments are when players react to eliminating people who tested as being the most the compatible with them, and therefore worth a lot of prize money.

Some of the banter contains sexual references, like a play on words about "spreadsheets" and getting between the "sheets." The behavior among the singles can often get a little obnoxious, too. But if you're looking for a quick-moving, lighthearted dating show, this one might fit the bill.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about dating shows. Are they really about helping people finding a compatible person to go out with, or they more about entertaining viewers? What have been some of the most popular TV dating shows over the years? Why were (or are) they so successful?

  • Is there anything strange about mixing a game show with a dating show?
