The feelgood factual entertainment format Five Things I Hate About You goes to the United States.
Each hosted, hour-long program features one couple, who are given the chance to prove – once and for all – just who is the more irritating person to live with.
They start by identifying the THINGS about their partner that annoy them the most … from ‘he’s always slapping my butt’ and ‘she never wants to leave a party’ to ‘he’s always telling the same joke’ and ‘she’s got a charity shop fixation’ … these are just some of the things that drive them crazy.
Then, with their home turned into a full-scale surveillance operation, the couple have two weeks to capture the incriminating evidence. They can be as sneaky as they want; the more proof they can gather of their partner’s annoying habits, the greater their chances of winning.
The final judgement is up to a three-person jury made up of a friend or family member from each side and a relationship expert. At the end of the show, the jury watches the evidence before declaring a winner.
Funny and surprising, thoughtful and revealing … Things I Hate About You USA gets to the heart of what makes real relationships tick.
