- 6 Seasons
Next is a television show that first started as an American show, but has extended internationally to France, Canada, Chile, Lithuania, etc. This television show is another way for people to date without all the hassle of going to several different places to meet people throughout the day. Next involves six people, out of these six individuals, they are all single and looking for dates. The main person is called a "Nexter" who has the chance to go on a date with the other five contestants. The other five are either men or women, depending on the Nexter's preference and have to wait in a RV until it is their turn to meet the main person. In each episode, the people are never the same, and after the show they never have to see them again if they are "Nexted". There are two segments to this television show, the beginning and then the meeting of the daters. The beginning consists of the Nexter, a man or a woman, telling information about themselves such as their dislikes, special interests, etc. This person has the opportunity to "Next" the person they meet whenever he or she may want to because of their looks or personality. The five people in the RV are able to see each other, while the Nexter is unaware of what any of their potential daters look like. In the next segment, whenever the five daters have their turn, information about them pops up on the screen before they meet the Nexter. If the dater isn't instantly nexted, then they have the opportunity to go out to eat with the nexter or to do an activity set up by them. The twist of this date is that, for each minute that the contestants last on the date, they get that amount of money. For the contestant that lasts the length of the date (however long it takes the nexter to determine that they want a second date), they have the choice of going on a second or taking the money they earned and run. If some of the contestants have not had their turn and the nexter has already picked who they want to have a second date with, they don't even get to have a chance to go on their date.
