I Have Issues With OWN’s ‘Ready to Love’ Dating Show … Again

The third season of Ready to Love, a dating series from Will Packer Media and Lighthearted Entertainment, premiered on OWN on Oct. 23rd with a casting special featuring host and dating mentor Thomas Miles and executive producer Will Packer. Miles and Packer gave viewers a glimpse at the season’s cast and revealed why they thought each of the 20 contestants was ready to love, but the season didn’t actually begin until the second episode that aired on Friday, Oct. 30th. Similarly to the previous seasons, though, the third season of Ready to Love is already fraught with issues ranging from bodyand hair texture exclusivity, an undercurrent of colorism, and perpetuating the idea that women have to compete with each other for a man’s affection.
