Guys in Disguise is a brilliantly funny take on the dating genre,” said Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, in a statement. “This format enables the participants to actually go on a date together, while still keeping the element of appearances hidden. It’s a comedic format that works to take people looking for love out of their comfort zone.”
