Amazon Prime’s ‘Written in the Stars’ is a Brazilian dating reality TV series that revolves around a single person representing one of the zodiac signs in each of the 12 episodes. The single person in focus goes on multiple dates with four bachelors or bachelorettes, with whom they share different zodiac compatibilities. Once the single completes the four dates, guided by the presenter Ingrid Guimarães, they eliminate one bachelor or bachelorette with whom they had the least amount of chemistry.
Now, the astrologer turns to the stars to eliminate one of the three remaining participants with the least compatibility with the single. With two remaining prospects and the knowledge of their zodiac compatibility with each of them, the hopeful single must choose to either listen to the stars or ignore them. Originally titled ‘Match nas Estrelas,’ the astrological dating show sees the single persons in each episode travel to different places across São Paulo, making you curious about the filming sites.
