Throughout the show, the host provides the men and women with additional insights by providing personality profiles showing which contestants are their best matches and also allowing them to view items the others have brought to the house, such as items of clothing or luggage.Other episodes include sketch artists drawing contestants' impressions of each other.After the one-on-one dates, each contestant can choose to invite another that they wish to see.
Dating in the Dark (Daten in het Donker) is a reality show created in the Netherlands where 3 single men and 3 single women move into a light-tight house getting to know each other and form bonds in total darkness.
Three men and three women are sequestered in separate wings of the house, unable to have any conversation or contact with the opposite sex unless in the dark room.
Initially, all six contestants have a group date in which they all sit at a table in the dark room exchanging names and getting to know one another's voices and personality types.
After this date, each contestant can invite another contestant for a one-on-one date; these dates are also held in the dark room.
During the reveal process the couple must remain silent.
While being shown in the light, a contestant cannot see the other contestant's reaction.
Each contestant is standing at opposite ends of the dark room with a very large two-way mirror between them.
A color camera films from the dark side of the mirror while the other is illuminated on the other side.
A separate infrared camera films the person on the dark side's reaction; the two images are combined in post-production.
