NBC's 'Who Wants To Marry My Dad?' spinoff of 'Meet My Folks' to premiere July 14
By Reality TV World staff, 07/11/2003
NBC's new "Who Wants To Marry My Dad?" reality series will premiere on Monday, July 14 at 10PM (ET/PT). In this spinoff of NBC’s hit relationship series “Meet My Folks,” the adult children of a single father choose among several suitors to decide which woman will marry their dad.
Though “Dad” will feature the outrageous “secret tasks,” surprising revelations about each player’s past and “lie detector” tests that have helped make “Meet My Folks” such a hit with viewers, the stakes in this show will be much higher as the kids choose the woman who will become their new stepmom.
With an emphasis on romance, the series will follow the courtship of “Dad” and the contestants over five episodes, with the kids eliminating women each week until only two women remain in the final episode. Unexpected guests and a surprise segment featuring a legion of lie detectors add to the fun before the kids decide in the finale which woman “Dad” will marry—and take on a fantasy honeymoon trip. Then their father will propose to the winner.
“Dad” is produced by NBC Studios and Nash Entertainment. Bruce Nash (“For Love or Money,” “Mr. Personality”) – who created both “Meet My Folks” and “Who Wants to Marry My Dad?” – will serve as executive producer of the new series along with Scott Satin ("The Most Outrageous Game Show Moments," "Extreme Gong Show").
