'Singled Out': MTV reboot hosted by Keke Palmer on Quibi already a fan favorite thanks to queer representation
In a time where we are stuck indoors, staying safe, Quibi, America's first bite-sized mobile streaming service launched barely a few hours ago. Most of the shows are already a hit among fans despite each episode being barely 10 minutes long or even shorter.
One among these is the MTV reboot series 'Singled Out' hosted by Keke Palmer and Joel Kim Booster.
Dating shows have mostly been a huge hit among fans and viewers. But while some assumed that a dating show with each episode being either 10 minutes or less might not be a great hit, the series has managed to gain an army of fans who are now hooked to the series.
'Singled Out' is the reboot of the MTV reality TV dating series but with a twist. There will be one main dater who is linked to a pool of diverse singles all through social media. Each episode includes one dater and 30 singles who will be vying to get out of the friendzone. So who will move past the friend zone area, and make way to the dater's heart?
Fans applauded the series, not only for its unique concept but because of its queer representation. The series hooks up singles of every gender and sexual preference.
Taking to Twitter after watching the series, fans say they are hooked to it. "HEY @Quibi is LIVE! First three things you should check out: Singled Out w/ Host @ihatejoelkim You Ain’t Got These w/ @LenaWaithe @gaymeshowlive W/ @MattRogersTho & @davemizzoni," a fan wrote.
"Best part of Singled Out on @Quibi is Keke Palmer. It sorta works cause these sort of dating shows get boring after 10 min, so short length helps," a fan wrote. Another added, "Okay I have not stopped Quibi’ing myself to death. Night Gowns, Singled Out, Punk’d, Nikki Fresh???? Stimulate me daddies!!!!!!"
"just got done binging Gayme Show & Singled Out (& Punk’d & Murder House Flip & Night Gowns, ok?!) and let me just say here and now that @Quibi is the future, my podcast loving ass is obsessed & YouTube could never," a fan shared. Adding to that another said, "the rebooted singled out is actually my favorite thing on quibi."
"ok @ihatejoelkim singled out on @Quibi is my new favorite show," a fan added.
Another wrote, "#SingledOut: Kind of frantic. Better once I got in the rhythm of it by the 2nd/3rd ep. Love that they led with the queer representation — first contestant is bi and the second is gay! Reminded me of watching NEXT marathons in high school hoping for a gay ep."
"So the #singledout reboot is half a nice trip down memory lane, half what-the-heck-am-i-watching?" a fan shared.
