We’re going to assume that the executives over at WeTV have never seen an episode of Love and Hip-Hop: Hollywood nor For The Love Of Ray J because they’ve tapped the singer to host the new dating series, Driven To Love.
The eight episode, hour long series will feature Ray J driving around hopeless romantics while they sit in the backseat and decide who they want to go out with.
Here’s the official description from Deadline: “Ray will provide dating advice, present a handful of carefully selected prospects, and supervise dates that take place both inside and outside the vehicle. The rider can choose to drive by a potential mate, stop to pick them up, or kick someone already in their ride straight to the curb.”
Wait, there’s more, “…at the end of the day they’ll choose one match to join them for a romantic weekend getaway in the hopes of building a new relationship.”
You lost us at “Ray will provide dating advice…” Is he going to tell the show’s participants how to maintain a side apartment for stripper parties? Maybe he’s going to share how he fought with his girlfriend, now fiancee Princess Love in New Orleans and since he was already on probation, she went to jail for him.
What a stand up guy! Apparently this was exactly what the network was looking for. ““Online dating sites and dating apps have become the norm in finding romance,” said Marc Juris, WE tv’s president. “Driven to Love is a real life interpretation of this popular dating trend with a fun, engaging twist. And Ray J only adds to the excitement of this show. He’s a talented young star who has just a bit of experience in the dating world which makes him the perfect host for this series.”
Welp! There you have it! Will you watch Driven To Love? Are there any other young, eligible bachelors that you would want to see with their own dating series?
