"THE REAL LOVE BOAT" ANNOUNCES THE CREW AND ITS FIRST BATCH OF SINGLE CRUISERS TO SET SAIL ON THE NEW REALITY ROMANCE ADVENTURE SERIES, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 5, ON CBS

Hosted by Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell, "The Real Love Boat" Joins "Survivor" and "The Amazing Race" for CBS' All-Reality Wednesday Nights Beginning at 8PM, ET/PT

L to R: Matt Mitcham (Cruise Director), Ezra Freeman (Bartender), Captain Paolo Arrigo.

THE REAL LOVE BOAT announced today three Crew members and twelve Singles joining hosts Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell on a luxury Princess Cruises ship through the Mediterranean. The series premieres Wednesday, Oct. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM, PT/ET) on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+*.

The ship's Crew members - Captain Paolo Arrigo, Ezra Freeman (Bartender) and Matt Mitcham (Cruise Director) - play pivotal roles in the matchmaking and navigation of the romantic yet sometimes turbulent waters, just like the beloved original scripted series "The Love Boat." With over 40 combined years working in the industry, Arrigo, Freeman and Mitcham bring their real-world expertise to help the Singles look for love in this adventure of a lifetime.

Singles experienced in the ups and downs of romance come together on THE REAL LOVE BOAT to find a true love connection while visiting and competing in some of the world's most beautiful cities, including Barcelona, Marseille, Rome, Santorini, Athens and more. A shoe designer, firefighter, nurse, teacher and landscape architect are among the men and women setting sail on the romantic adventure. From divorce and broken engagements to terrible online dating experiences, being unlucky in love has not discouraged these Singles from seeking true romance.

Throughout the season, Singles embark on destination dates and compete in challenges to test couples' compatibility and chemistry, while earning valuable rewards. The romantic waters will be tested when new Singles come aboard, and those who don't find a match will "Shove Off" and be left behind at port. After nearly one month at sea, one winning couple will dock in the final port and take home a cash prize plus a once-in-a-lifetime trip courtesy of Princess Cruises, the series' exclusive cruise line partner.
