Faking a relationship on reality TV is harder than you think.
I applied to be on my favorite TV show, The Love Trials, as a joke. I never expected to get chosen. I mean, come on! I’m single, for one thing. It’s a couples game.
And yet, here I am. In a Scottish castle – no less – and about to make a fool of myself on national television.
The producers say they’re going to match me up with a total stranger. We need to fool the other couples – and the British public – that we are totally legit. Easy enough, right?
The prize money will help me quit working for my lousy boss and start up my own business. My ticket to getting out of my tiny village and move to London! I just have to make sure I don’t mess this up. And at no point can I actually fall for the guy. Oh, no. True love is off the table.
