Netflix confirmed this Tuesday morning (2) that Camila Queiroz and Klebber Toledo will present the national version of Blind Wedding. The couple will assume the role of intermediary for the participants, just as Nick and Vanessa Lachey did on the North American reality show.
“We will be thrilled with these singles who want to be loved for what they truly are. Do you imagine giving yourself up and marrying someone you have never seen before?”, Said the actor in a statement sent to the press. The actress, on the other hand, commented on the experience of presenting the attraction: “The recordings have already started, and I am following all this closely, in an environment that leaves no doubt about the affective connections they are building”.
The Brazilian version of Casamento às Blindas is a platform partnership with EndemolShine Brasil. In the format, men and women get engaged without meeting each other in person. Participants are initially separated and, during the program, they are placed in ten doors leading to a dark corridor. At the end of it, there is a private room, in which the participants interact through an LED screen, but without seeing the other person. Couples are defined as they identify with each other. In the end, there is a real wedding.
THE TV News found that Camila’s new relationship with Netflix caused a malaise at Globo. The star ended up losing his long-term contract with the broadcaster for “cheating” with streaming. She now only has one work agreement to record Secret Truths 2 from March.
Netflix also announced other national productions that will reach the catalog in 2021. In addition to Blind Wedding, the platform will treat a national version of Queer Eye Brasil and Brincando com Fogo. There is also an entrepreneurial reality, still untitled, and the documentary series É o Amor, starring Zezé Di Camargo and Wanessa.
With the development of new titles, the platform intends to reinforce its original programming for fans of reality shows and documentary series in Brazil. “From relationship programs going through makeover divas to ambitious entrepreneurs, we believe that we were able to meet the most varied preferences and moods of our subscribers,” added Francisco Ramos, vice president of originals for Latin America.
“The launch of unprecedented content in Brazil boosts our partnership with the local creative community, both in the creation and in the production of new stories. Meanwhile, our successful global originals will continue to have their seasoning and 100% Brazilian versions, complementing our fiction productions. and connecting thousands of fans around the planet, “said Elisa Chalfon, nonfiction content manager for Brazil.
Playing with Fire has already been recorded by Fremantle and will have 14 singles confined in a tropical paradise. They will be challenged to deprive themselves of any and all physical contact for 40 days – you can’t even kiss them. In the end, they can find true love, based more on affective relationships than sexual ones.
In the entrepreneurship game, four bold and creative entrepreneurs will be able to develop and show their products to a technical jury and to another 100 consumers. In the format, carried out by Floresta Produções, they will have to prove why their ideas deserve a chance with a good financial investment.
Also in partnership with Floresta Produções, Queer Eye Brasil will feature Fred Nicácio (well-being), Guto Requena (design), Rica Benozzati (style), Luca Scarpelli (culture) and Yohan Nicolas (beauty). They will forever transform aspects of some men’s lives into the Brazilian version of the original American winner of seven Primetime Emmy Awards.

About the documentary series É o Amor, the platform revealed that the production will be recorded on the Camargo family farm in Goiás. Zezé and Wanessa will talk about family ties and music with friends and other national artists.
“Sharing our family on a platform like Netflix is flattering. I hope people will have fun, be moved and stay with us! It will be an amazing experience and I am counting the days so you can see everything”, commented the singer.
“Having our story told from another perspective, looking for the origin from me, my story, and with Wanessa together will be something so incredible! We have a lot to tell, sing, gather, talk about, create with this Netflix team and Ventre Studio that has been with us for a few months, “said Luciano’s brother.
