There is apparently one man on the planet who isn’t looking for someone like Jennifer Lopez, as host Andy Cohen learns on Thursday’s series premiere of “Love Connection.”
The exclusive clip above from Fox’s revived version of the romance show features Sheena and Gregory, who discuss their recent first date. Sheena describes Gregory as “attractive,” but he does not exactly return the favor.
“It’s going well — she’s a really nice girl,” Gregory says in a self-recorded video during the actual date. “Probably not someone that I would continue to date. I typically go for maybe a little more of the preppy style, and she’s more of the J.Lo style.”
Sheena is baffled by the remark and points out that Lopez is typically considered to be quite fashionable. Cohen then asks, “Do you mean that she’s more ‘Jenny From the Block’?”
Gregory does his best to dig himself out of the hole: “Well, when you say it like that, it sounds bad. But no, I typically go for someone who’s just different.”
The hourlong game show is executive-produced by Mike Fleiss (“The Bachelor”), with Cohen as a co-executive producer. Warner Horizon Television, Telepictures Productions and Fleiss’ Next Entertainment are behind the reboot of the game show. “Love Connection” originally launched in 1983 with host Chuck Woolery and ran for 11 years.
Watch the clip above to see the numerical score that Sheena and Gregory gave each other based on looks.
“Love Connection” premieres on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
