Dating can be an exhausting experience leaving people even to wonder if anyone in the whole country is a good fit for them. BravoTV’s ‘Love Without Borders’ expands on this notion in a familiar yet unique way. The reality show revolves around several young men and women who have tried to find love in their hometown but failed. As a part of a social experiment, the participants are whisked to a foreign nation, where they meet a stranger.
While the producers have meticulously chosen the partners for each cast member, it is up to the couples to see if they will fall in love despite their differences. After all, just because something looks good on paper does not mean it will succeed in real life. Season 1 of the dating series welcomed five young participants, including Philip Michael Thomas Jr, who was looking forward to finding his perfect match. Naturally, people are eager to learn more about him, and we are here to explore the same!
