A Kilcoole man will be on RTÉ2 TV on Thursday night looking for love. Ross Reynolds, who grew up in the town many TV viewers still call Glenroe, is one of the contestants on the new dating show ‘The Love Experiment’, which will air at 9:30 p.m. tonight.

Tonight’s episode is the third in the four part series that is based around a social experiment designed by psychologist, Dr Arthur Aron back in the 1990s. The experiment is built around 36 questions to fall in love. The idea is that a set of questions, which gradually promote intimacy, can create the conditions for love! In the series, this set of questions is followed by a four-minute stare.

Ross joins three other contestants featuring tonight: Grainne Loftus, is from Mayo, living in Dublin, John Morley from Mayo, works as a journalist with Mid west radio and Kerry Cromwell is a restaurant manager from North Dublin.

All will undertake the 36 set questions followed by the four-minute stare in order to see if they can fall in love after really meaningful and honest answers. Psychologist Malie Coyne will watch and listen to the answers and interactions of each person and gives her take on how she thinks the couples are connecting – or not!

Ross studied acting before changing to a career in construction. Can he build strong foundations for love, tune in tonight at 9:30 p.m.
