The Proposal (s): Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, beginning June 18
Hosted by former NFL quarterback and Season 5 Bachelor Jesse Palmer, each one-hour episode of the 10-episode series will follow a group of male or female daters as they attempt to woo a mystery suitor with their words in a first-impressions round; bare their souls in a beachwear round; answer the mystery suitor’s most pressing romantic questions; and strive to receive a seal of approval from the mystery suitor’s most-trusted family member in the final round.
After each phase, the daters who fail to connect with the mystery suitor are whittled down, leading to the ultimate reveal – two remaining daters finally meet the mystery suitor for the first time and present a romantic proposal of their choice.
