Other people's tinder experience as a TV show

I have been using the dating service Tinder lately, purely for research purposes of course, and thinking about the data that I am giving to the company. This data (how long I spend looking at each potential date, and whether I choose yes or no), gives a lot of information away about me. I imagine if you knew who another user was, that watching their exact tinder experience would be infotaining. I can imagine a TV show of other people's tinder experience enhanced by laugh tracks, betting, encouragement, cheerleading etc.

Thermopile [8th of 7, Jan 23 2015]

       Hoping for a wood-burning TV. Disappoint and ripoff of reality dating shows [-]

       It wouldn't duplicate the smell, or the excitement of having to run outside and chop something up, anything, really quickly as the program approaches the cliffhanger ending and you realize the coals are going to go out.

       Oil-burning radios were available in the former USSR for quite a while.

       That (link) is absolutely wonderful.

       I am having a hard time not reading Thermopiles as a Greek name.   

       ... or indeed a painful and debilitating medical condition.

       ... or old Buck Rogers episodes, which reminds me how glad I am to no longer be part of the dating scene, (sorry ladies).   

       If how little I would watch this show is any indication it should be a huge hit, right up there with Big Brother.
