TV Guide Magazine: If you weren't producing this show, what series would you most like to be an executive producer on? La Plante: You've got something to say, Juan Pablo? TV Guide Magazine: How will your show change the face of TV as we know it?
There may be a bevy of redheaded beauties in Hollywood right now (Christina Hendricks, Emma Stone, Julia Roberts, Isla Fisher…) but “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger says dudes with dough aren't into gingers.
Would be hilarious how wrong they would be, but I bet they would have a much easier time winning the $1 million. La Plante: The biggest compliment I can give the cast is they left it all out on the field. La Plante: If you like to play matchmaker with all of your friends, you'll love our show.
TV Guide Magazine: What credit of yours would you prefer we forget? None of them were immune to some kind of drama at some point during the shoot! TV Guide Magazine: Pick another show, any show, to start a fake feud with.
La Plante: People who love reality dating shows are the obvious audience, but the social experiment aspect takes the show up a level from the standard one guy/one girl date and eliminate situation.
My favorite part of the show is the gameplay, because it taps into a very fundamental dating question: If your perfect match was standing right in front of you, would you even know it? If you don't jump on the train now, you may miss the beginning of something special.
La Plante: I found this on Twitter and couldn't be more proud of the show's addictive quality: "Started to watch online tonight.Four hours later I'm still going." TV Guide Magazine: What's the worst thing?Besides, first season reality formats always tend to be the juiciest because the cast has nothing to reference before playing the game.TV Guide Magazine: What's the best thing anyone has said or written about your show?La Plante: Also from Twitter, I take this one as a backhanded compliment: "I honestly think #Are You The One is my new favorite reality show, and it makes no sense and everyone's awful but I don't care." TV Guide Magazine: Who was right? TV Guide Magazine: What's an alternate title for your show?La Plante: the cast must identify the worst person for them rather than the best. La Plante: Some of the challenges we came up with were classified as "too sexual." But don't worry, I've got them in my back pocket for next season.
