The Bi Life (UK) Serie 1

The Bi Life: is this the first 'queer-friendly' dating show? While Love Island has become a big hit, its format is rigid and doesn’t allow for same-sex relationships. E!’s new show could be the answer

Along with the blistering heat and the glimmer of World Cup glory, the overriding theme of the summer was just how invested the nation became in one Spanish villa. Love Island was the sleeper hit turned national phenomenon, with even peripheral player Hayley Hughes briefly steering the nation’s Brexit conversation. But one criticism frequently levelled at the show was its overwhelming straightness, its format not truly allowing for same-sex relationships (there was one in the show’s second series, between the late Sophie Gradon and Katie Salmon). Enter E!’s The Bi Life – hosted by Drag Race and Celebrity Big Brother alum Shane Jenek AKA Courtney Act. On the face of it, this new series appeared to be both a vehicle for redressing dating shows’ lack of queerdom, and also a ripped-from-Twitter attempt at emulating the success of ITV2’s hit.
