INFO: THE FIX-UP SHOW brings together a panel of three peopleâ€”two who know an eligible single well, and one celebrity who has never met the personâ€”and has them interrogate potential suitors to make a match. The matched pair wins a meal at Amalfi restaurant and goes on a real date! How did our panel do? Find out next week!
Itâ€™s â€œIâ€™ve Got A Secretâ€ meets â€œLove Connectionâ€ â€“live on the Los Angeles stage. A dating show with heart â€“spontaneity, hilarity, and civility are guaranteed. Old or young, gay or straight, all are given a chance to find love on THE FIX-UP SHOW.
