- Date Drop (six episodes): Pushing the dating format into today’s world, six YouTube influencer contestants will meet their potential companions via videoconference “gallery mode” for a series of speed dates to find their perfect match.

The finale will culminate in a virtual quinceañera that will air in June, featuring surprise guest appearances. Tara Cole is Supervising Producer.
