The series brings together two strangers, both single and looking for love, who use just a kiss as their initial greeting and first and only impression.
Based on a Dutch format of the same name, each episode explores the captivating power of a first kiss between two strangers. Straight or gay, the only qualification to be on the show is the willingness to kiss somebody you just met. And the experiment is as simple as it sounds — walk up to a complete stranger, kiss, and then decide if there's enough chemistry to want to get to know each other better. Can a kiss really lead to true romance? Or will they choose to go their separate ways?
Before they make their final decision, they must first both agree to go on a two-minute speed date. Then if each person is still interested they must decide if they want to enter the final stage: a real first date. Cameras catch all of the awkward moments, candid confessions as well as physical and emotional connections.
The series features eight sometimes-steamy, sometimes-awkward smooches in the "Kiss Room" per episode. If a kiss falls flat, a recurring cast of daters will have the chance to go back to the Kiss Room until they find chemistry. Throughout the series, the audience will witness all of the heartfelt scenes that come with the ups-and-downs of scoring that first kiss, first date and, hopefully, true love.
