U.S. reality TV programs showcase Costa Rica
Read our “Love in the Wild” blog here.
New NBC reality show “Love in the Wild,” staged in Costa Rica, premiered Wednesday night at 8 p.m. The vapid dating show forces 10 well-groomed men and women to brave the rivers, jungles and volcanoes of Costa Rica, all while searching for love. Scottish-by-way-of-Australia host Darren McMullen orchestrates the action as the men and women pair up to tackle each challenge. The least impressive man and woman from each group are sent home at the end of each episode of the cruelly entertaining program.
In addition, the 21st season of MTV’s “Real World/Road Rules Challenge” takes place mainly in Costa Rica, with some episodes set in Argentina. In the show, seven male and female teams compete for $300,000. The first episode debuted Wednesday night as well.
