Binge watching TV: can your favourite show make you more attractive?
As it turns out, Canadians think your choice in TV says a lot about you: not only do 61% think that putting your favourite shows in your online profile is a great way to meet a like-minded date, 68% feel that being a fan of the right shows can actually make you more interesting!
It all starts with a Big Bang
So what are these ‘right’ shows? Opinions are divided but, ultimately, the show that grants the most kudos is The Big Bang Theory. Indeed, 42% of singles agree that being interested in The Big Bang can make you seem more attractive. Second place goes to Game of Thrones, with 28% thinking that fans of that series are automatically more intriguing; while Criminal Minds takes out third place with 27%.
Of course, there is a flip side to this coin: the survey also revealed that there are TV shows that are seen as off-putting. Leading the pack (by a wide margin) is The Walking Dead: 33% of Canadian singles think that being a fan of zombie hordes makes you less attractive. Other TV turn-offs include loving Broadchurch (a no-no for 15% of singles), and being a devotee of Doctor Who (a repellant for 14%).
