For his practical date, he teamed up with Ali Fazal. Ali said, “never actually been on a date with another guy before”. But the actor was ready to give it a try. He says he was open to giving it a try if it would help Rabanne find love.
In this episode of the Netflix series What The Love, Ali, and Rabanne engage in some flirty banter. The two clicked it off with some real chemistry. The television show ended with Rabbane saying he has always wanted a man to lift him up in his arms. And Ali Fazal was more than happy to abide by it.

Fazal even posted a behind the scenes clip from the episode. He posted the clip with a caption that said, “It seems I cover my nervousness with hysterical laughter.” The actor has nearly 700 thousand Instagram followers. And the post reached a lot of followers.
Fazal has a huge fan following. And it is not surprising to know that there are many men that drool over this desirable man. Fazal admits that he has been hit on by many guys in the past. But he has never followed through with anything. He explains, “To begin with, it was a very nervous experience, more for me because I’ve never been on a same-sex date before. But I stayed on and was just having fun with him. I think that was quite a task and I actually feel good about it.”
As for Rabanne, after shooting the episode with Ali, he got an opportunity to go on blind dates with two different men. He realized that one was not a fit for him. There was another who was a young makeup artist named Adarsh. He seems more successful. But Rabanne says there was some awkwardness. You will have to watch the episode to find out if Rabanne and Adarsh would be a match.
What The Love is not the only show on Netflix that covers blind dates. There are many more shows on television that help others find love. It is interesting to see such shows. But how scripted are they? Maybe not. A long as there is entertainment, people will watch such shows.
