The trailer for Netflix’s strange new dating show has left viewers baffled.
‘Sexy Beasts’ sees participants arrive to their first date looking completely unrecognizable, as they transform into wild and wacky fantasy creatures using prosthetics.
The show, based on a BBC Three series that aired in 2014, hopes to help the singletons find love based solely on their personalities.
Each contestant will go on three blind dates, all wearing prosthetics, and will only see their date’s true identity after they’ve chosen the person they’d like to meet again.
The first six-part season will be released on Netflix on July 21, and the trailer was released on Twitter today.

Another wrote: “Love Island + The Masked Singer = Sexy Beasts.”
A third viewer penned: “Naked Attraction: We’re the craziest dating show out there! Sexy Beasts: HOLD MY DRINK.”
