Auditions: Taken Out

Still looking for love? TEN wants to hear from you, at least if you live in Melbourne.

FremantleMedia is producing a new dating show for the network called Taken Out.

“A single man finds himself dramatically revealed to up to 30 women in the Taken Out arena (arena?….this sounds big). Through each twist and turn masterminded by our dashing host the women learn more about the eligible bachelor and decide if he is someone they see as a potential love interest.”

By the end of the night there will be one woman left standing. The format also promises the girls a second, alternative guy. “It’s a fascinating format reflective of the real-life process of meeting and choosing a partner.”

The show will also reverse roles by having 30 guys compete for one girl. Contestants must be over the age of 18. Contact: [email protected]

A host is yet to be announced. Any guesses guys?

Press Release:
Network Ten and FremantleMedia Australia today commence production in Melbourne of an exciting new program for 2008 – Taken Out a studio based dating show for the contemporary woman and man.

A single man finds himself dramatically revealed to up to 30 women in the Taken Out arena. Through each twist and turn masterminded by our dashing host the women learn more about the eligible bachelor and decide if he is someone they see as a potential love interest.

If cupid’s arrow has been correctly aimed our bachelor will be left with one woman standing – his lucky date for the night.

It’s a tricky path to find true love and the competition is fierce. But all is not lost if our single is not Mr. Right as our girls are presented with a new single guy to cast their eye over. It’s a fascinating format reflective of the real-life process of meeting and choosing a partner.

During the series the sexes are reversed with single girls taking their chances with the panel of up to 30 guys.

Taken Out gives you a very real insight into the personalities, likes and dislikes of the singles as we get to know them through the elimination process.

Casting is underway for Taken Out in Melbourne. If you are still yet to find the man/woman of your dreams and have a certain flair for the dramatic then this could be your ideal opportunity to meet your match. Over 18 is a must! Shoot through your details to the email address below and our producers will be in touch.

  2. I am in Sydney and would love a chance to be on the show….I think they should have a couple of shows in each state. We love the show up here in NSW!

  3. I would kind of like to audition for this but I’m scared it could make me look like an idiot on tv. haha

    I think I’ll just wait until I’ve seen an episode so I know what I’m in for!!

    When is it being aired?

  4. Yep I also had visions of yasmins not getting married now I have another vision it is the word FLOP it will follow the tradition of yasmins not getting married the flop house the resort the x factor channel 10 amazes me sometimes with what they think will be good shows

  5. David, this sounds like Ten’s 80’s hit Perfect Match on steroids.

    As for a host,I won’t mind if Greg Evans comes out of retirement to do this show.

  6. What a surprise, no mention of gay contestants lol. But then again, if it was ever going to happen, Channel 10 would be the place for it 🙂

  7. Yes I had visions of Yasmin too.

    Not my type of viewing but if that farmer wants a wife did well enough to deserve a second series on 9, this might do ok.

    As long as it’s not a daily series!

  8. The concept sounds so similar to the Bachelor. Can’t see many people wanting to watch that on TV, just like “Yasmin’s getting married”.
