ITV2 broadcast the first and second shows on the same night (June 4, 2014) and the first show drew 286,000 viewers (1.2%) from 9pm-10pm, while the second show drew 274,000 viewers (1.7%) from 10pm to 11pm.

Time magazine reviewed the US premiere, comparing it as "weirdly similar, down to minor details" to Joe Millionaire.

The bachelor, Matthew Hicks, works for an environmental consultancy firm.
