ABC Orders Summer Dating Series ‘The Proposal’

Ten Episodes Ordered

ABC has ordered 10 episodes of a new dating series called “The Proposal” from “The Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss. Hosted by former NFL quarterback and season 5fiveBachelor Jesse Palmer, each one-hour episode will feature 10 eligible daters competing in four pageant-style rounds to win the heart of a mystery suitor or “suitress,” whose identity is concealed from them.  
 
Each episode will follow the male or female daters as they attempt to woo the mystery suitor with their words in a first impressions round; bare their souls in a beachwear round; answer the mystery suitor’s most pressing romantic questions; and strive to receive a seal of approval from the mystery suitor’s most trusted family member in the final round.
 
After each phase, the daters who fail to connect with the mystery suitor are whittled down, leading to the reveal, when the two remaining daters finally meet the mystery suitor for the first time and present a romantic proposal of their choice. Will there be a marriage proposal that can’t be refused?
 
“The Proposal” is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton, James Breen and Jason Ehrlich serve as executive producers.
