James Charles is ready for love. And he’s heading to the internet to find it.
Off the back of a massive year— including a wildly successful reality show and a recent Vogue Portgual cover— the 21-year-old beauty influencer has been announced as the latest celebrity bachelor to join the Twitch dating show, ‘Love or Host.’
“LOVE OR HOST FT James Charles,” producer Austin of the AustinShow tweeted today.
According to promotional materials, the beauty guru is set to appear on the ‘Love or Host’ on November 15th. James confirmed the news by tweeting, “wish me luck.”
‘Love or Host’ has quickly become a fan favourite in the Twitch-sphere. Airing on the AustinShow channel, ‘Love or Host’ is a game show that puts matchmaking in the audience’s hands. Though not a totally unique concept, this particular broadcast allows viewers to watch romantic interactions in real-time via the Twitch stream. Rather than the “host” eliminating contestants based on their connections (or lack thereof), it’s the chatroom that decides.
Despite its popularity, ‘Love or Host’ has a relatively low-key screening process for contestants. As per his instructions, simply DM producer Austin via Twitter and include who you are, what makes you interesting, and why you are interested in the “host” of that particular show. You must also include photos of yourself and be 18+ to apply.
Guests have included JSCHLATT, GeorgeNotFound, and soon, James Charles.
This announcement is amongst multiple major moves for the viral star this year. In addition to breaking records with his reality show, Instant Influencer, and completely rectifying his public image after Tati Westbrook finally set the record straight on her allegations against him last year, James recently revealed his long-awaited makeup collection is in the works.
We’re totally here for the James Charles comeback tour. And we’re hoping that includes finding love.
Watch James on ‘Love or Host’ Sunday, November 14th at 4PM EST. Or, if you really want to try your luck, apply to go on a virtual date with James Charles here.
