Red Hot Date Ignites Summer Romance at Spa Resort Casino!
Dating Game Style Show Brings Valley Singles Together
By Rachel Montoya
Palm Springs, CA, June 1, 2012 –Just because temperatures are on the rise, doesn’t mean valley entertainment is going cold. Hosts Cirenia Guerrero, Craig Michaels, Blake Bentley and Andie Bradley are going to make sure of that as they navigate audiences on June 15 (and monthly thereafter) at Spa Resort Casino through a modernized Dating Game style show, where “Anything Goes” and “Everything can Happen.”
Reminiscent of the popular 1970’s game show, The Dating Game, Red Hot Date is a high-energy, fast moving; anything goes dating game show, set on a live stage and broadcast on Palm Springs’ local television. Pushing the boundaries on what makes dating an often seductive and sexy test of personality and wit, Hot Date promises to have even the most politically correct audiences rolling in the aisles. Also a full-fledged multimedia experience, this extremely interactive game show is filmed in high-definition and displayed on jumbo screens to ensure everyone in the audience has a front row seat to all the action. Not only that, but producers say that the audience will be part of the action, with the ability to ask stage contestants questions, vote on who should be picked and be contestants themselves through entertaining pop culture trivia and singles games.
“We’re excited to be working with the Spa Resort Casino and their staff,” says the show’s producer, Valerie Wells, as the two have come together to help create Wells’ vision of a “Singles Utopia” through modern lighting techniques and multimedia effects. Parkwil Manor Haunted House has also stepped up to help create a stylish dating game style stage, complete with lighted partitions and set pieces.
“The show is geared towards valley professionals of all orientations and anticipation for the show has grown quite heavily as the first show date draws closer,” says Wells. Currently slotted for the “Hot Seat” (or the singles that will be choosing between three eager contestants vying for a date with them) are Charissa Farley, owner of Farley Interlocking Pavingstones and Rich Warren, owner of Sign World [see sidebar]. Several stage contestants will also be chosen at the event, and producers encourage anyone interested in being on the show to contact them at info@HotDATEvents.com.
Although tagged as a singles event, producers are quick to note that couples will also find the experience entertaining. Along with providing singles games, Love Shack will be providing couples games to help “reignite the spark” says Love Shack representative, Serena Leichtfuss. Not only that, but a variety of prizes are up for grabs for contestants and audience members alike, which include everything from suites provided by Renaissance Palm Springs and the Palm Springs Hilton, to dinners provided by Trio, Ace Hotel and many more.
Red Hot Date’s first taping will take place at Spa Resort Casino’s hotel side in the Canyon Conference Center on Friday, June 15th and will air on KRET-TV (Channel 14 Time Warner, 21 Verizon Fios) early July every Saturday morning at 11AM. The show will also be following the dates of the winning contestants and airing them shortly after. Guests are encouraged to enjoy a happy hour reception at the hotel pool beginning at 7PM prior to the show, with doors opening at 8PM. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased through HotDATEvents.com.
