Netflix Drops Trailer For Masked Singer Style Dating Show Sexy Beasts

Netflix has officially dropped a trailer for its quirky new dating show, Sexy Beasts - and... err... it's safe to say, people are terrified.

The show, which originated on BBC Three seven years ago, has now been picked up by the streamer for a reboot.

If you didn't watch back in the day, the show is basically a mashup of First Dates and The Masked Singer. The idea is people wear masks and elaborate prosthetics on their dates so that their inner beauty shines through, encouraging individuals to pick each other on personality alone.

Check out a clip below:

When Netflix shared the trailer online, the streamer wrote: "No, you're not hallucinating. SEXY BEASTS is a new dating show that uses cutting edge prosthetics to put true blind-date chemistry to the test."

And it didn't take long for the gags to come flying in.

"Am I on drugs," said one person, sharing a picture of a man dressed as a walrus.

"My test of a potential partner/date would be whether or not they'd want to participate in something like this," joked another.

A fellow Twitter user mused: "Imagine someone fancying you as a wildebeest but then changing their mind when they see you as a human beest. So upsetting."

A teaser from Netflix reads: "Ready to say goodbye to superficial dating? SEXY BEASTS is the dating show that takes looks completely out of the equation using fantastical, cutting edge prosthetics to transform the daters - giving them a chance to find love purely based on personality!"

Sexy Beasts originally aired on BBC Three in 2014, back when BBC Three still had a TV channel before moving online.

After going on a masked date, the elaborate face coverings and prosthetic make-up are removed after the singletons make a decision whether to see each other again or go their separate ways.

The new series was filmed during the coronavirus pandemic - between September and November last year - with around 50 singletons from the US and UK taking part in the reboot.

And Netflix obviously has faith it's going to be a banger, as it has ordered two seasons Netflix has already ordered two seasons of the show - which features narration from comedian and Catastrophe star Rob Delaney.

The show debuts for season one on 21st July. We're scared and excited in equal measure...
