Date My Family 4

Forget about the "two people meet each other" typical love story. It's now a full-on family affair.

The twist in the tale? The bachelor/bachelorette must choose just one potential partner who they think they'll hit it off with – based solely on what the families say and do. But will they make the right choice?
