Inspired by a British reality show, this program will debut this Friday on Amazon Prime Video and Record TV on the 30th
Imagine finding that person with the attributes that have always attracted you, from hair color to physical build. Now imagine being alone in a house with seven people just like that. This is the challenge of the reality game ‘Game of Clones’, which opens this Friday (16) on Amazon Prime Video, with a presentation by Sabrina Sato, 39.
The program, inspired by a British reality show, will also air on Record, but starting on the 30th. In all, there will be ten episodes, each with a personality – from model to winner of other realities -, looking for the perfect match among people specially chosen to suit your taste.
But anyone who thinks that this is a cruising reality is wrong. Sabrina says the biggest surprise for her and the participants was just how personality and chemistry become more important than physical appearance. “In the first episode, the hottest cat was eliminated”, jokes Sabrina.
“[O programa] it is exactly that, the search for history, for the essence. Personality counts much more than physical appearance and personalities are unique. Even if they are all the same, with the same clothes, you can find out what each one likes, the life that each one had, what each one seeks inside “, says Sabrina.
And whoever expects a stranger in search of the perfect match, will be surprised. The ten participants looking for a pair include role models and influencers, in addition to the winner of “A Fazenda” 11, Lucas Viana, 29, and the former De Férias with Ex Laryssa Bottino, 22, also known as one of Anitta’s best friends , 27.
According to director David Felton, they only knew that it was a relationship reality, but not about “clones”. From the arrival, however, dates, challenges and parties began, all to bring together candidates for marriage. Even family and friends came to the place to help with the decision.
“In the beginning it is a lot of fun, but then it starts to deepen,” says Felton. “Experience allows people to get to know each other. Physics can be a way to impact, but not to decide. There is no roadmap for relationships, people will want to get to know each other and we will watch it happen.”
“It is interesting to see how, regardless of the experiences that each one has, when they fall in love, they give themselves up and it seems that everything is starting for the first time. The purity is really beautiful,” says Sabrina, who also pointed out that it happens to people fall out of love also during the program.
Still, for Felton, “the format rescues a little bit from the question of getting to know other people. Asking, listening, getting involved with the stories. It is a relationship format, not a prank. We want people to ask, listen, ask questions “, completes the director.
Despite the romantic outlook she seems to have in front of the program, Sabrina Sato points out that there was a catch and bullshit, even behind the scenes.
Contrary to the director’s guidance, the presenter revealed in a press interview that there was a catch even among “clones”.
“There was a ‘clone’ who caught himself, had a triple kiss, but I think there was a lot of love, romance, feeling. But behind the scenes, yes, even a makeup artist of mine got along,” jokes the presenter, who rejected the idea of meeting with clones of her husband, actor Duda Nagle, 37. “One already makes a lot of mess,” he jokes.
The only complaint regarding the program was due to the outsiders. “I was really good at giving out, I got even a little trauma, I will need therapy,” says she, who was responsible for informing the rejected clones of the participants’ final decision.
