Home and Away favourite returns to anchor hit dating program
Home and Away favourite Ada Nicodemou will front its ratings-winning reality show Please Marry My Boy when series two of the popular dating program returns Monday, July 29 at 9pm.
The multiple Gold and Silver Logie nominee said the reality rom-com is the perfect match for her.
"This is such a lovely show with a great heart," she says. "It's warm and fuzzy feel-good TV, and in a time when we are so often bombarded with bad news, it’s a series everyone can cheer for."
Please Marry My Boy offers three Australian mums the chance to find their unlucky-in-love sons a mate. The women take charge of every aspect of the courtship process... with cameras in tow.
Beginning with the all-important speed date selection process, the mums will narrow a field of prospective partners from 10 to three with the successful girls then invited into the family home.
What happens after each team of bridal hopefuls walks through the front door makes for must-see TV. Competition is fierce, hormones run rampant and tears and tantrums are guaranteed.
Each week the girls must successfully master a challenge designed by their suitor's mum in order to secure a date with their man. But just as relationships begin to blossom, a new twist unfolds.
Averaging one million viewers last year, Director of Network Production Brad Lyons predicts audiences will be swept up in the chase once again.
"We have some surprises in store for our singles this year as well as fans, and we have a great mix of people on the lookout for love," he says. "I think viewers will be smitten."
The chance to help cupid along is what attracted self-confessed romantic Ada to the show again.
"I read a wonderful quote once that love is about adventure and risk, not security and comfort. And what a risk these people are taking. I'll be supporting from the sidelines, and I hope others will too."Please Marry My Boy airs Monday, July 29 at 9pm and Thursday, August 1 at 8pm continuing Thursdays at 8pm thereafter.
