22Executive Producer Chris Coelen Met His Own Wife on a Blind Date
Married at First Sight began as a U.S. version of the Dutch tv series Gift Ved Første Blikk. Though the concept proved to be successful, there was still some hesitance to get involved with the show. Sexologist Dr. Logan Levkoff didn’t believe in the series until she watched the original
program. She recalled, “I could not put it down. It was provocative. It was thoughtful. You rooted for the people who were part of this, and it was unlike anything that I had ever seen before.”
However, for executive producer Chris Coelen, his interest in the show tied directly to his own romantic experiences. He actually met his wife on a blind date, so he already had a sense of how to try and find love with a complete stranger.
