What to watch if you like Netflix's 'Single's Inferno'

By Camille Santiago Published Jan 17, 2022 9:57 pm

Single's Inferno may be over, but that doesn't mean there's nothing else to binge.

When Netflix first released Single's Inferno in late December of 2021, it easily became the first Korean reality show to make it to the streaming platform's Top 10 TV Shows chart, and we totally get why. The eight-episode reality-dating show invited a set of gorgeous singles (all who look like they just came straight out of a K-drama) to a deserted island in the middle of summer. And what they endured to escape "inferno" in exchange for a one night in paradise (literally) with their dates, had viewers and the show's commentators on the edge of their seats.

While we're still waiting for season two updates, here's a list of reality dating shows you should watch if you like Single's Inferno.

Love Island

It's Big Brother meets Singles Inferno. Love Island contestants get "saved" from being eliminated from the villa if they find a match in the house. These contestants are isolated from the outside world, and whose fate lies on the public as they vote for their favorite islanders to stay in the villa. The winning couple wins $100,000.

The show originated in UK in 2005 and it now has franchise versions in USA, Australia, and Canada among others.

Too Hot To Handle

Ten gorgeous participants are placed in a seaside home to find love. The catch? They must avoid intimate relationships with each other to win the prize money of $100,000. Could the contestants from Too Hot To Handle resist the temptation?

Terrace House

Hit reality Japanese TV show Terrace House focuses on the everyday interactions of three men and three women—all strangers to each other—who are living under the same roof. The cast members have the freedom to go about with their lives (they even have access to a car!) and decide when they get to leave the show. But they all go home to the same swanky house and share meals, go on dates, interact, as they attempt to form new friendships and initiate romantic relationships within the housemates. 

Panel commentators, like the ones in Singles Inferno, provide real-time commentary in every episode.

Currently, there are five seasons of Terrace House.

Heart Signal

Heart Signal is Terrace House and Singles Inferno combined. 

Much like in Terrace House, the singles in this South Korean reality show are allowed to go to the outside world to fulfill their obligations at work. Panelists are also shown in between episodes to analyze the conversations and situations. And after each episode, contestants are tasked to choose who they're interested in.

If you're a fan of Song Ji-a, you'll also find her in Friends, a spinoff of this dating show.

Bed on the Beach

Eight contestants are invited on a beach getaway for four days and three nights, and in that short period, they should find a potential partner.

The reality stars are tasked to join various games that involve a looot of physical contact and are asked to pick someone to spend the night. Each evening, the couple with the hottest behavior will be rewarded with a fancy date.
