Initially, all six contestants have a group date in which they all sit at a table in the dark room exchanging names and getting to know one another's voices and personality types. Each contestant is standing at opposite ends of the dark room with a very large two-way mirror between them. Cameras are set up to show both the meeting balcony and the front door. During the reveal process the couple must remain silent. Throughout the show, the host, Rossi Morreale , provides the men and women with additional insights by providing personality profiles showing which contestants are their best matches and also allowing them to view items the others have brought to the house, such as items of clothing or luggage. A color camera films from the dark side of the mirror while the other is illuminated on the other side. This is done, in part, by using video editing software to fade the infrared image of the person being revealed to black before they are illuminated, then seamlessly showing the color image of the person being revealed as it is faded in and out.
