They are short, snappy, and worth your time. Simplicity is key in this reality show, so it keeps working.

Read the review of the original series.
It’s the same again but this time we are watching swanky hopeless romantics in Brazil. As I said in my last review, I was particularly sniffy about the Dating Around concept, but after a second helping, I realised that the simplicity of the series, in urban and ambient areas, is a unique selling point and one that can last for a long time on the streaming platform as long as they keep it genuine.
Stripping away the usual reality tropes, Netflix’s Dating Around: Brazil brings the replicated concept into another country. It oozes swagger, encouraging the lead dater to hang in trendy urban hot spots and dissect her dates to see if they measure up to her expectations in a significant other.
And like its English counterpart, Dating Around: Brazil season 1 gives the lead dater five blind dates but the question is always who they pick for a second date. We are often glued to our dating apps and Dating Around manages to remind us that this whole process is not meant to be clinical — being compatible is something that is often sought in the first date.
If you are a sucker for romantic reality shows, I’d recommend that you try out the original series first and then work your way through the second season before you encounter Brazil. They are short, snappy, and worth your time. Simplicity is key in this reality show, so it keeps working.
