A Dating Reality TV Show
The cast of Reagan Baker, Ashleigh Warren, Kesun Lee, and Kris Kelkar discover true love, leaving behind local dating in New York to New Orleans, Miami, Austin, Seattle, Asheville, Honolulu, Santa Fe, and Boulder.
It is a romantic comedy, real life docuseries of people from various backgrounds, and ‘not a manufactured drama.’ It is a reality TV dating show, which is exceeding the limits of race and sexuality, with three people being of color and two people from the LGBTQ+ community.
The show features ‘genuine friendships forming on television,’ parenting a child with disabilities, funny consequences of dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, and racial issues.
Is Swiping America Real?
‘We love romantic comedies, and that combined with our work in the unscripted space, we set out to create true-to-life romantic documentary … aka Rom-doc,’ creators and executive producers Johnnie Ingram and Stephen Warren talked about Swiping America in an interview.
In most romantic shows, the realness has disappeared from the binge-watching indulgence. The genuineness is highlighted by a lack of competition reality TV show factor. Reagan Baker agreed to join the show for its authenticity and ‘smart’ concept.
The perspectives of the cast are self-reflective, self-discovering, and true to oneself. It is not just a reality show but also relatable from the cast’s perspective. It has real-life dating realities in different cities like Miami and Texas.
Swiping America has realities of dating, like sex, relationships, family dynamics, and connection, rather than a fictionalized love story. An ‘entertaining unscripted show’ that has no catfight element of reality shows, it is anything but honest instead.
It is a documentary of digital and modern dating exploration in fresh and real experience, its connections, and growth in different dating cultures. Things get more ‘personal’ and ‘real’ in the first-ever format of the reality show.
