The most popular Chinese TV dating show, "Chinese Dating", may give you a new perspective to this question. Complimentary flight tickets and accommodations will be provided if you're chosen. Produced by one of the top 3 Chinese TV stations, Dragon TV, "Chinese Dating" is now looking for overseas participants to be on the stage with their parents! Requirement for participants: Single, marriage age, average or above average looking, can express him/herself properly. The host interviews families of the first 5 male participants. Male participants leave to a separate room (out of female participant's sight).
Prioritizing personality over looks, covered the faces of the 20 bachelors one lucky woman was to choose from.
The obvious advantages of speed dating in Real Life are that it provides a way to meet a lot of people in a short amount of time, eliminates pressure to ask for phone numbers, and doesn't allow much time for things to turn awkward.
It has a lot of potential in fiction, too: it can serve as a great hunting ground for the perp in an episode of a detective drama, or it allows you to show a fun montage of the main character(s) meeting lots of weird and/or annoying people, like a personal Terrible Interviewees Montage sequence, or it can provide An Aesop about first impressions.
