NBC Seeking Vegan Singles For New Dating Show

If you’re vegan and single, and ready to mingle, then NBC’s new dating show might be how you find true love.

“First Dates” is based on the U.K. edition, which documents people on dates at the same restaurant. The U.S. version will be exec-produced by Ellen DeGeneres, and according to producers, is specifically seeking single people who are on plant-based diets. No word on why vegans are being preferred (besides them absurdly attractive, obviously) but no doubt it has to do with DeGeneres’ own vegan diet.

The reality show is for those who are “genuinely looking for love” and will match singles based on interests and following them on their first date.

For those interested in appearing on the show, you can click here for NBC’s casting page. Casting is open to participants ages 18 to 65+ who are currently single and U.S. residents.

And unlike certain other dating reality shows (ahem “Bachelor” Nation), the series promises “no competition, no eliminations.”

The hour-long series is slated for eight episodes and will begin filming in Chicago this July.

And let’s face it: it probably beats Tinder.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
