In a ‘swipe left’/ ‘swipe right’ culture, often based on pictures alone, Love Triangle challenges a group of singles to relinquish their grasp on what they think their perfect partner should look like, and instead choose from two potential suitors, sight unseen, inspired by a deeper connection. Once they date their first pick, they move in together and build on the connection they’ve formed, until their second choice comes knocking…
This season tests the singles like never before as they are forced to consider their own toxic dating habits and confront some uncomfortable home truths. A shocking new twist will rock the singles to their core. Unable to run, hide, or ‘ghost’ when the going gets tough, they are forced to reconsider their dating behaviours, work through their insecurities and approach connections with a refreshing new mindset.
In a shakeup of the groundbreaking Love Triangle format, season two welcomes MAFS alumni Ella May Ding as the narrator of the modern dating show. Ella first rose to fame, capturing the hearts of Australia when she appeared on Married at First Sight season nine in 2022. With her infectious positivity, and unwavering self-assurance, Ella quickly became a fan favourite. Despite not finding lasting love on the experiment, Ella has solidified her position as a multi-talented and influential figure in the industry, using her platform to empower and inspire others.
Ella will provide a fresh take on the new season of Love Triangle, having been through a relationship experiment as part of her own quest to find lasting love. With her energy and unique perspective, Ella will captivate audiences while advocating for self-love, personal growth, and meaningful connections. This experience leaves her more than able to tackle her first TV narrating role for Love Triangle.
MEET THE SINGLES
Alan - 32, Electrician, VIC
Charismatic sparky Alan is often mistakenly perceived as an “f boi” by potential suitors. The successful businessman and ex semi-professional AFL player is adamant that these preconceptions couldn’t be further from the truth. He admits that he does have walls up, which has him searching for red flags ahead of the positives when it comes to any potential match. Having experienced heartbreak twice in the past, Alan has been on numerous ‘inauthentic’ dates with women who misunderstand him, and he won’t settle until he’s finally found the ‘real deal’.
Jacinta – 28, Model, VIC
Outgoing and vibrant Jacinta is searching for her soul mate to wake up to each morning. Identifying as pansexual, Jacinta has been in relationships with men and women, but hasn’t dated a man in over four years. Although she has dipped her toe into dating apps, she admits that it’s been more for validation as opposed to looking to meet someone special. Jacinta is open to meeting someone with whom she can connect on an emotional level – energy and confidence are non-negotiable.
Nellie - 25, Comedian, TAS
Full of life, and a long list of dating disasters, Nellie is looking for someone to adore her. Nellie finds that the ‘hot guys’ on the apps don’t swipe right for her, so she doesn’t even try. A comedian with high expectations when it comes to sarcasm and humour, Nellie is ready to rip up her book of questions which she carries around with her (not joking) to determine if her suitors make the mark.
Sam – 35, Business Owner, WA
Self-assured and confident Sam lives in the remote town of Broome, where the prospect of love comes and goes with the tourist seasons. Sam can operate at surface level, often going for looks over substance. He has been guilty (on more than one occasion) of mistaking infatuation for love, becoming bored by ‘basic’ personalities and moving on. Sam doesn’t think twice about flying women in to see him from interstate, and even international destinations in his quest to meet a woman who is in the same league as him; but each time, inevitably the romance dies out. At 35, Sam believes he is ready to find someone unique who matches him on every level, not just his (self-professed) good looks, and settle down once and for all.
Sulei - 28, Social Worker, QLD
Ultra-likeable bachelor Sulei is a hugely social being. There is always something going on in Sulei’s life, and now it’s time for him to share it with someone special. Sulei has been single for four years and never been in love before. He admits to being quite picky when it comes to a partner, often cutting off relationships before they’ve had a chance to get going. A devoted family guy, Sulei is looking for a soulmate who is secure in herself that he can champion – and give his family grandkids of course!
Tamera – 26, Content Creator/Model, NSW
London-born model and content creator Tamera has been single for five years and is ready to meet ‘the one’. Super-driven Tamera isn’t willing to settle, and says that she doesn’t have too high standards… just a guy who’s 6’5” or above (not shorter), has depth of character and is an entrepreneur or professional athlete. Tamera is over dating apps and is sick of the game playing. While she feels unsure that there will ever be a guy who ticks all her boxes, Tamera is keen to be proven wrong and meet a guy who is on her level.
The Stan Original Dating Series Love Triangle season two is produced by Endemol Shine Australia (a Banijay company) Director of Content Tara McWilliams (Married At First Sight), Executive Producer Mollie Harwood (Married At First Sight), Executive Producer Alex Spurway (Married at First Sight), 9Network Executive Producer John Walsh (Married at First Sight, The Voice) with Stan Executive Producers Cailah Scobie and Amanda Duthie and from 9Network Michael Healy and Adrian Swift.
