The format is similar to Big Brother, with a few slight differences. 16 contestants are put in a secluded venue known as “Aunty’s Love Pad” for eight weeks, during which they will spend time getting to know each other and forging relationships and completing challenges set out for them. Each week viewers get to decide on their favourite contestants/couple. The contestants with the least votes will be evicted from the premises. The winning contestants are declared the ” Ultimate Couple” which will receive a cash prize, a fully furnished apartment and an all-expenses paid traditional wedding.
“Aunty” takes a similar role to Big Brother, the difference being that she is occasionally in direct physical contact with the contestants, announcing the challenges, offering emotional support, announcing the winning couple and evicting the couple with the lowest votes. In season one she is portrayed by Adesuwa Onyenokwe.
