    Well I think it was funny and interesting. I had several good laughs watching the mismatched couples stumble around the stunningly beautiful Costa Rica landscape. Sure it is a reality show for (trying) to find love. But what a first date, you will really find out the character of a person you are building a raft with so you can float down a crocodile infested river, following hand drawn map. Good luck guys and gals, but it made for great TV and good laughter. I will watch it again. Besides who cares what critics think. Expand

    One of the best dating shows ive seen. the contestants are a lot of fun to watch as they develop and change. the process is fresh and everything about the show is a 10.

    It's only fun, though, when the would-be mates turn on each other and the bat guano flies: Romancing the Stone morph into The War of the roses. [25 Jul 2011, p.40]

    Love in the Wild is undeniably a waste of time and brain cells.

    Maybe central casting is wearing thin, but aside from being beautiful (naturally), there's not a personality in the bunch more interesting than the crocodiles, ants or bats on display.
