Four unmarried and childless couples test their relationship when confronted with 22 beautiful single people (usually 11 men and 11 women but in 2010 only 8 of each) for a duration of 12 days.
Romantic dates with bachelors or single women take place every day.
Each contestant later discovers, through camera clips, a selection of excerpts of their partner’s behaviour during the day, when they gather for a nightly ritual known as camp fire.
After the twelve days, around a final camp fire, each couple must then decide if they will stay together or not when the programme ends.
One of the most striking couples was Brandon and Diana.
