It took an unnecessary amount of time crafting and staring at that headline, because no words can describe the fever dream that is Netflix’s upcoming dating reality show, Sexy Beasts—for when cat ears aren’t enough.
A probable lovechild of The Masked Singer and dating shows, the series is about singles meeting other singles for the first time while being dressed in costumes and prosthetics to look like animals or aliens. The goal is to remove superficial aspects of meeting a prospective partner so appearance wouldn’t be a factor. Well, unless you’re a furry.
As detailed by CNET, Sexy Beasts first aired on the BBC in 2014, but it is now being revived for international viewers on Netflix with new UK and US participants.
To be fair, the series was filmed last year, during the pandemic, so the added layer of prosthetics would make sense as a protective measure. But that doesn’t mean you should replicate this on your own dates.
If you have to, remember to wear a proper mask over your snout.
I truly would love to know the Netflix algorithm that led to Sexy Beasts getting greenlit. Like is there a huge subset of people who alternate binge watching "Love is Blind" and 80s body horror movies? pic.twitter.com/DjLQquW4RN— Will Mavity (@mavericksmovies) June 23, 2021
