‘The Real Love Boat’: Will Josh Find True Love on the Regal Princess?

josh real love boat 2022

If you love love, if you love sexy singles, if you love glamorous European destinations, boy, does 10 have a show for you!

Where’s Bachie gone? No one knows. Instead, 10 is giving us a brand new dating show that’s essentially Love Island on a boat, and to be honest, we’re into it!

The Real Love Boat takes place aboard the Princess Cruises ship, Regal Princess, and will see our contestants travel the seas — visiting picturesque locations in SpainGreece, France, Italy, Turkey and Montenegro along the way — as they search for a lasting love match.

One of the singles hoping to find love on the Regal Princess this year is Josh Hack, a 28-year-old adventure co-ordinator from Tweed Heads.

For Hack, his dream partner would be “super cute, playful, funny and loveable,” per a press release from Network Ten.

“My last relationship was just over a year ago,” he said. “We met though friends. It was a beautiful relationship, but in the end we were just two very different people.”

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and for Hack, that’s very much the case — he’s also very into foodies, as well as women who have good taste in music.

Describing himself as “outgoing, bubbly, caring, well-travelled and loving,” Hack said that his dream date could be any number of things, from something adventurous, to “anything with yummy food, or any art-like activity”.

On the other hand, he does have a few deal breakers that he can’t tolerate from someone he’s considering a relationship with.

“I don’t like closed minded people, and I don’t like people who have massive egos,” he said.

As for himself, he’s mildly concerned that his high energy personality may be a little off-putting for any potential love interests that cross his path.

Hosted by Darren McMullen, The Real Love Boat also features Cruise Director Hannah Ferrier — who Bravo heads will recognise from Below Deck Mediterranean — as well as Head of Entertainment Daniel Doody, and Princess Cruises’ Captain Paolo Arrigo.

Will any of our singles find love and never let go? Or will it be a titanic disaster? Only time will tell.

The Real Love Boat airs at 8.30pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays, only on 10 and 10 Play on Demand.
