In each episode, viewers will see the couples attempting extreme tasks, taking them out of their comfort zone, with the lowest-scoring couples are eliminated from the game. Ultimately, one couple will win the cash prize, but will their budding romance stand the final test?

A game of chance will give one of them an excruciating decision, share the money with their date or keep it all for themselves.
