‘Zoom Bachelorette’ has it all: Quarantine grooming skills, bad cooking and lockdown love – CNN

Ameri, a 28-year-old entrepreneur, was the first “Zoom Bachelorette” — a twist on ABC’s “The Bachelorette” franchise for the quarantine times. As with the popular TV series, there were one-on-one dates, group dates, cocktail hours, and even a comedian host who gave Chris Harrison, the host of the ABC series, a run for his money.
On the first group date, some of the men were asked to show off their quarantine grooming skills — they took scissors or razors to their locks and facial hair in an attempt to coif their unruly lockdown looks. On a second group date, they displayed their (oftentimes mediocre) culinary skills. It was all live-streamed on Twitch, where hundreds of viewers, who paid in the form of charitable donations in exchange for access to the viewing link, watched the full event and commented in real-time.

Part reality show and part virtual-dating experiment, Zoom Bachelorette was an extreme version of a pandemic dating trend: video dates. Amid stay-at-home orders, many are eager to forge connections and dating apps have raced to encourage video conversations.
