Gurki Basra appeared on the first season of Dating Around, and went on a notoriously bad date. Two years later, the 38-year-old found love with Dating Arounds director, James Adolphus. In an exclusive interview with OprahMag.com, Basra opens up about how Dating Around changed her life.
Did gurki not choose anyone?
Gurki Basra appeared on Season 1 of Netflixs Dating Around and she was the only person on the show to chose to not go on a second date with any of the five men she went out with. On Sunday, she took to Instagram to joke about not picking a second date after Season 2 of the show was released to Netflix on Friday.
Is the show Dating Around fake?
Though Dating Around isnt scripted, it is edited as expertly as any other reality show. As showrunner Alycia Rossiter told Bustle, leads only go on one date per day, but wear versions of the same outfit each time, giving the illusion that the dates are happening back to back.
How does Dating Around filming work?
Although Dating Around gives off the impression that all of the dates are filmed across one day – the single dater wears the same outfit for each date – they film the blind dates across one whole week. For continuity purposes, production must intervene with the date.
