Ready for Love was a dating reality show that premiered on NBC in 2013. The show was produced by Eva Longoria and hosted by Giuliana and Bill Rancic. It aimed to help three eligible bachelors find love among a group of 36 women who were handpicked to match their criteria. The show had a unique format, incorporating both pre-recorded segments as well as live studio episodes, which allowed the viewers to take part in the show and influence the competition.

The three bachelors featured on the show were successful and handsome with varied backgrounds. Ben Patton, a financier from Dallas, Texas, had everything going for him except for a good relationship. Tim Lopez, a musician from Santa Barbara, California, was part of the band “Plain White T's”. He had toured the world, but had yet to find the right woman to share his life with. Ernesto Arguello, a philanthropist and businessman of Miami, Florida, was originally from Honduras and had established a successful real-estate company. He was seeking a partner who shared his values and would be a good fit for his life and work.

The show began with the three bachelors choosing 12 women each, who would be competing for their affections. These women had gone through an extensive casting process, and each bachelor's picks were based on what they were looking for in a partner. The show followed the women as they tried to get the bachelors' attention and form connections with them. The contestants were put through a series of challenges to test their compatibility with the bachelor of their choice. The challenges included everything from trust exercises, to building a house together, to meeting the bachelors' families.

Throughout the show, the bachelors received guidance from three matchmakers: Tracy McMillan, Amber Kelleher-Andrews, and Matt Hussey. The matchmakers used their expertise and experience to help the bachelors navigate the challenges of dating, and they coached the women to help them make the best impression possible. The matchmakers added a depth to the show that highlighted the importance of finding the right partner.

In addition to the pre-recorded segments that followed the contestants on their journey, Ready for Love also included studio episodes which were broadcasted live. During these live segments, the bachelors would sit down with Giuliana and Bill Rancic and discuss their experiences, give updates on their relationships, and rate the women based on their compatibility. Additionally, each week the women would be given feedback from the bachelors, giving them an opportunity to grow and make changes.

The show was designed to be interactive and inclusive, and viewers were encouraged to participate in the show through social media. The show even included a feature which allowed viewers to weigh in on which women they thought were best suited to each bachelor. The audience could use a social media application to vote for the women they believed would form the best relationships with each bachelor. This feature allowed viewers to feel more involved in the show and see the contestants through the eyes of the bachelors and matchmakers.

Ready for Love was a well-produced and well-balanced show that didn't rely on drama or conflicts to keep its audience engaged. It focused on finding love for the bachelors and the women, and it provided a unique perspective on the challenges of dating. The matchmakers and studio discussions added depth to the show that made it more than just a typical reality show. Additionally, the audience's involvement added to the excitement and anticipation of the show.

Overall, Ready for Love was a refreshing spin on the dating reality show genre. The show was well-structured, well-produced, and gave viewers an opportunity to observe the challenge of finding love through the eyes of the bachelors, matchmakers, and contestants. It was a show that was inclusive, interactive, and aimed to help its contestants find love that would last a lifetime.

Ready for Love is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on April 17, 2012.
