From Entertainment Weekly

Is it just us, or do contestants on NBC’s summer dating show Love in the Wild (premiering June 1 29) look less annoying than their counterparts on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette? Maybe that’s just because we know they’ve signed up for finding love while paddling down crocodile-ridden waters and navigating through bat-infested caves in Costa Rica, which should mean there’s no one talking about wanting to be a princess. Of course, only time will tell. Here’s the photo, how NBC describes them, along with our first impressions.



Image Credit: Trae Patton/NBC

Top row, left to right:

Name: JASON JACKSON
Age: 28
Hometown: San Francisco, Calif.
Occupation: Sales
This trained opera singer and adrenaline junkie is surprisingly terrified of ants. However, his combo of good looks, great career, and awesome personality would seemingly make him the complete package for one of the ladies.

Our first impression: Agreed.

Name: STEELE DEWALD
Age: 24
Hometown: Scottsdale, Ariz.
Occupation: Pro Golfer
A pro athlete, killer looks and charm for days — he’s the one the viewers will love — or love to hate. The ladies will all want him but need to decide if he’s the typical player or really in this for love.

Our first impression: His name is Steele. Player.

Name: BENJAMIN HOOKER
Age: 27
Hometown: Charleston, S.C.
Occupation: MBA Graduate
He’s the guy that will tell it like it is and women are going to fawn over him. A guy’s guy — he’s the buddy you want go have a beer with.

Our first impression: Well, we’d definitely recommend his bride keep her last name.

Name: JARED INES
Age: 28
Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.
Occupation: MBA Student
This is the guy who will keep the party going. Women will dig his hotness, but will he let his guard down to really connect with someone like he says he wants to?

Our first impression: If this is a question you need to ask, then he shouldn’t be on the show?

Name: MIKE SPIRO
Age: 29
Hometown: San Francisco, Calif.
Occupation: Commercial Real Estate Broker
This self-proclaimed “brains and brawn” type is an entertaining guy for sure. The girls will be attracted to his wit, and his swagger will surprise the guys.

Our first impression: Nice smile, wit, and swagger? Contender!

Name: SKIP SULLIVAN
Age: 30
Hometown: Milton, Mass.
Occupation: Loan Underwriter
Buff and tough– underneath it all he’s a fun guy who’s going to hit on every girl he can. He’ll be a risk taker when it comes to switching partners. And if he finds the right one, it could be life changing.

Our first impression: “Hit on every girl he can” sorta cancels out “fun guy,” right?

Name: DEREK LEACH
Age: 28
Hometown: Venice, Calif.
Occupation: Medical Sales Representative
This mama’s boy is the romantic of the group and truly looking for the one. And because he’s a risk taker, look for him to switch it up if the girl he’s with isn’t the one for him.

Our first impression: This is how you frame a “risk take,” ladies and gentlemen.

Middle row, left to right:

Name: VANESSA GUERRERO
Age: 26
Hometown: Phoenix, Ariz.
Occupation: Law Student
She knows she’s hot, isn’t afraid to speak her mind and will stir up the pot amongst the contestants. Definitely one who thinks any guy there is lucky to be with her.

Our first impression: Sounds like she could be one of those, “I came here for him, not to make friends with you ladies” contestants that doesn’t realize how unattractive that is. But let’s hope we’re wrong.

Name: JESSICA DEBOLT
Age: 24
Hometown: San Francisco, Calif.
Occupation: Travel Executive
America will fall in love with her… and so will the guys. She’s the girl next-door — cute, vibrant, fun, and very memorable.

Our first impression: If that’s all true, we do love her.

Name: SAMANTHA WOODS
Age: 23
Hometown: Bridgewater, Mass.
Occupation: Wedding Planner
Sweet, smart, and put together. Not only are the guys going to go for her big time, she’s the one that viewers may fall in love with too.

Our first impression: Wait, two women we’ll genuinely like. WHAT?!

Name: KIM NGUYEN
Age: 24
Hometown: Quincy, Mass.
Occupation: Hair Stylist
A self-proclaimed natural beauty, look for her to possibly fall fast for someone even though she will try her hardest not too.

Our first impression: Translation: Tears?

DARREN McMULLEN (Host)

Name: JESSICA SOARES
Age: 23
Hometown: Bridgewater, Mass.
Occupation: Retail Supervisor
Loud and boisterous — she can hang with the guys or gossip with the girls. No matter what, she will make sparks fly good or bad.

Our first impression: “She will make sparks fly good or bad” = too much drama.

Name: ERICA SCHERLE
Age: 24
Hometown: Nashville, Tenn.
Occupation: Self-Employed/Songwriter Management
Once accused of being a gold digger, there’s more to this ugly duckling turned swan than meets the eye. A fiercely private person it will take the right guy to help her let her guard down.

Our first impression: “Once accused of being a gold digger” — we hope she’s around long enough for us to hear that story.

Name: DAWN CHRISTJAENER
Age: 27
Hometown: Scottsdale, Ariz.
Occupation: Hotel Guest Services
A firecracker! She’ll totally throw herself into the experience, speak her mind, and the viewers will be grateful she did.

Our first impression: “Firecracker” is more likable than “she will make sparks fly good or bad.”

Bottom row, left to right

Name: ADAM ROSE
Age: 25
Hometown: Taunton, Mass.
Occupation: Bouncer
A bouncer with heart. He’s tough on the outside, but peel it away just a bit and you’ll see a young man with emotion who’s ready to meet someone special.

Our first impression: Nice calves. Fingers crossed he references Road House.

Name: HEATHER POND
Age: 26
Hometown: Sonoma, Calif.
Occupation: Public Relations Professional
A vibrant, no-nonsense woman who will go to extreme lengths in her quest for love. She once even ran a marathon just to win a box from Tiffany’s. Fun and athletic — the guys will be sprinting to be with her.

Our first impression: She’s either someone we’d be friends with or someone we’d be jealous of.

Name: THERESA TRUJILLO
Age: 24
Hometown: San Jose, Calif.
Occupation: Hooters Girl/Real Estate Agent
The guys will need a bib for their drool. Beyond that, she’s a hot girl who’s not afraid to be herself. Whether she likes you or not — you’ll know it.

Our first impression: We would have thought pageant girl before Hooters Girl. Compliment? Hoping she’s a Hooters Girl with heart (who ends up with the bouncer).

Name: MILES HAEFNER
Age: 28
Hometown: Saint Louis Park, Minn.
Occupation: Client Services Manager
A guy the girls will be fighting over. He won’t be the one making trouble, but rather the one trying to get a good laugh from the bunch. He’ll definitely throw himself into the experience because he’s serious about finding love.

Our first impression: Nice smile, sexy forearms, and a sense of humor. Contender!

Name: BRANDEE DILLEHAY
Age: 25
Hometown: Nashville, Tenn.
Occupation: Mental Health Specialist
Unlucky in love with numerous bad dating stories that are guaranteed to trump anything viewers have been through. The guys will want to turn the tables for this southern sweetheart and give her a fairytale romance story.

Our first impression: We can’t wait to hear her stories, but if she mentions the word “Cinderella,” it’s over.

Name: PETER PARIS
Age: 31
Hometown: Venice, Calif.
Occupation: Surf Camp Owner
The consummate hot surfer dude will be sure not to make any waves with the ladies. His laid-back style will attract those who are not seeking any drama.

Our first impression: Great name, great smile, fun job, and no drama. Swoon.

No platinum blondes? That's kind of shocking for a reality tv dating show.

I started to watch it but then had to turn it off. I may try to catch it online and then try to keep up with it. With BB starting next week, I'll be doing well to keep up with the dishes though lol

I enjoyed the show as well. I was a bit shocked that Steele didn't choose Dawn. Or, should I say the editing made it seem he would choose her.

I thought the couple that won the first competition (I believe Samantha and Mike) make a cute couple, so far. I liked them from the start.

The waterfall was so gorgeous.

I liked this show. I haven't seen the 2nd episode yet.

And I agree, it's a cross between Paradise Hotel, Temptation Island, and The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Pad.

I only saw about 10-15 minutes at the end. I was happy to see the dude get eliminated too. Not sure if I'll make a habit of watching but it would be fun to drop in on.

Jess and Derek aren't together! I am not shocked but I am a bit surprised. I hope Samantha and Mike are still together as well, I liked them from the beginning and I hope they win.

Sorry I wasn't any help. Embarassed

http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/10/20/nbc-renews-love-in-the-wild-for-second-season/?iid=blogTV-3H-LN-NBC renews 'Love in the Wild' for second season

NBC’s jungle-romance summer dating show Love in the Wild is getting a second season.

Love in the Wild pairs up singles in exotic challenges hoping to spark a relationship. The next round of the Endemol-produced show will have some new twists to spice up the drama (the first season was so successful at hooking people up, it lacked urgency at times). “The success of the relationships formed on the first season of this series is a testament to the unique format of this show,” said NBC reality chief Paul Telegdy. “We look forward to an even more compelling season as the series will return with new format twists and a new set of contestants who will conquer the wild — or not — to find love.” The first round averaged 5.5 million viewers and a 1.8 rating in the adult demo.

I loved the first season. I'm glad it got renewed but I hope the new twists/drama doesn't suffocate the life out of the show.

Thanks, Catty!
