‘The Real Love Boat’: Is Katie’s True Love on the Regal Princess?

katie 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 real love on the Regal Princess is Katie Langford, a 25-year-old events co-ordinator from Queensland. She joined The Real Love Boat as an “exciting way to meet people”, per a press statement from Network Ten.

Langford considers herself a straight-to-the-point, direct kinda gal, but she’s also very caring, and said that she feels “ready for the next stage in her love life”.

Believing that she has a lot to offer in a relationship — from support to laughs and fun times — Langford said that she knows exactly what she’s looking for in a partner.

Those qualities?

“Humour, kindness, intelligence, thoughtfulness, assertiveness, and someone who is outgoing,” she said.

On the flipside, Langford said she can’t stand “arrogance, a lack of intentions, liars and those who are not supportive”. Fair enough!

Langford described herself as “outgoing, bubbly, friendly, goofy, and down to earth”, and when asked why she’s still single, replied: “You tell me! Maybe I am too independent?”

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.
