Speaking on the initiative, The Public Relations Manager of StarTimes, Kunmi Balogun noted that “The show follows the general format of the well-known dating show which originated from China called “If You Are the One”. During the show, a male guest introduces himself and tries to impress a group of female participants. The women can opt-out of the selection process if they don’t like the guy, and he picks the woman he wants to date from the ones who are left after a series of questioning.”
“Hello Mr. Right’’ is for anyone who is single and searching – it’s a fun way to meet interesting people and maybe find that special one. We are now calling on interested, potential contestants to come for the auditions for a chance to find love.’’ He said.
