L stands for Lifetime… and Love. The network dedicates two nights a week on its schedule to relationship series with Married at First Sight, Marrying Millions on Wednesday, and Married at First Sight: Couples Cam and Married at First Sight: Australia on Thursdays. For 2021, relationships go under the microscope once more with Lifetime’s order of the new spinoff series, Married at First Sight: Unmatchables, further expanding the Married at First Sight universe. Series is among the new relationship shows ordered by Lifetime including previously announced Battlefield of Love and the Sarah Jessica Parker/Pretty Little Matches produced Swipe Swap for next year.
“Married at First Sight: Unmatchables is an exciting new member of our Married at First Sight family,” said Gena McCarthy, EVP Development and Programming Lifetime Unscripted. “Each season we see so many amazing, complex and charming people that apply for the main show, but we simply can’t match everyone. Unmatchables allows these people a shot at love following our expert- led interventions and transformations.”
Over 65,000 people have applied to participate in the hit series, Married at First Sight… but some people are simply harder to match. Everyone deserves a chance at love, so the new series helps polish up the diamonds in the rough, providing them with strong relationship advice and a lifestyle overhaul to give them an opportunity to shed what’s been stalling real romantic connections in their lives. In each self-contained episode, Pastor Calvin Robertson and Dr. Viviana Coles will mentor two unlucky-in-love singles who simply couldn’t be matched previously and follow as they go through their physical and personal transformations, as they are set up on a date to see if love is in the air and if they have truly found their match. Married at First Sight: Unmatchables is executive produced by Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler and Ally Simpson from Kinetic Content, along with Gena McCarthy and Cat Rodriguez for Lifetime.

Gabrielle has never been on a date that didn't take place over text. Although she has a great sense of humor over virtual conversation, she can be brutally judgmental in person. The experts will try to help her become more vulnerable so she can turn her "text-ationships" into real-ationships.
