The reboot goes modern and will “bring online dating to life with a twist — the main dater is linked to the pool of diverse singles through social media,” a news release from MTV Studios and Quibi revealed Friday. The show will also “hook up a new generation of singles, of all genders and sexual preferences.”
The show will run for 20 episodes on Quibi, launching in spring 2020. It is being produced by MTV Studios.
“I am thrilled to be hosting ‘Singled Out,’” Palmer, a co-host of ABC “Strahan, Sara & Keke,” said in a statement.
“To be able to reimagine this show for my generation and on a new platform is so exciting,” the 26-year-old added. “Can’t wait for you guys to see what we have in store!”
The original “Singled Out” was hosted by Chris Hardwick and Jenny McCarthy, with Carmen Electra replacing McCarthy for the last season and a half. It ran from 1995 to 1998 on MTV.
During the initial run, the main contestant got matched — after questions, games and stunts — with one of 50 possible dates.
The series was last revamped in 2018 for MTV’s YouTube channel.
Keke stays with a job!
