Dating show with masks still ends up superficial.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

There's a long history of dating shows that aspire to make real love connections based on something other than looks, and this show's elaborate prosthetic makeup is a fun twist on the genre. In Sexy Beasts, it's pretty entertaining to watch, for example, an alien and a panda flirt while throwing axes. But the show also consistently undermines its own premise by placing a ton of attention on participants' physical appearance, exclusively casting extremely attractive people and editing the show in a way that often pokes fun at the contestants' superficial tendencies.
