Bennett Graebner is an executive producer who has been a part of many different successful television shows. He is mainly known for his work on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but he is now working on Love at First Kiss. At his Crunchbase overview there´s a detailed list on the most successful productions he relies his ability in. The show features two strangers who kiss for the first time and then see what takes place afterwards.
Many of the people who are paired up are not exactly each other’s physical type, but this is exactly what makes the show interesting. Instead, the show looks to pair people up based on their intellectual and emotional similarities. After kissing, the pair can decide whether they would like to try a speed date that only lasts a couple of minutes. If this works out, they can go on a full date with one another (Vassar).
The film producer feels like Love at First Kiss is similar to The Bachelor and The Bachelorette because it is a matchmaking show, of sorts. He recently admitted that the show was created by the Dutch but that the format was altered a bit after the idea was purchased. Bennett Graebner explains that one of the main differences between Love at First Kiss and The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is that Love at First Kiss follows people for a much shorter amount of time. Where the other two shows follow people for months, Love at First Kiss is like a speed date.
Bennett Graebner feels that reality television is very similar to regular television shows. There is a story to be told, and similar techniques are used to tell this story. Instead, this is done by following people’s lives without telling them what to do. Bennett produced the The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and he found it actually fun because the people who take part in the show are different every time. While the same general format is used, Graebner enjoys working on the show because it is unpredictable and fun when people genuinely fall for each other. Bennett Graebner expects to continue making hit shows by relying on his understanding for creating a winning narrative and his willingness to get new ideas from the people he works with.
