Wondery and Rococo Punch Announce Original Blind Dating Game Show Podcast, Queen of Hearts

Press Release ·

The first-of-its-kind dating show taps Drag Race Alum Jujubeee for her greatest role yet - the ultimate wing woman - as she guides real-life singles through a sexy, hilarious, game-filled quest for love

Dating can be a drag, so why not turn it into a game? From Wondery, Amazon Music and Rococo Punch comes a new blind date game show, Queen of Hearts, hosted by Drag Queen extraordinaire, Jujubee (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Dragnificent), who guides singles through a series of sexy games and challenges to see if they can find their one true love-for-now. Building on the trend of finding new ways to connect, eager daters play to win over the heart of the bachelorX using just their voice. The first-of-its-kind podcast series, Queen of Hearts, will launch with ten-episodes beginning June 14 for Amazon Music and Wondery+ subscribers and on all podcast platforms on June 21.

In this audio-first dating experience, Jujubee leads a diverse set of contestants through a series of fun, and thought-provoking games as they get to know one another, laugh together, and just maybe, fall in “like.” Most importantly, contestants are only heard, not seen – there is no swiping, profile curation, filters, or cat-fishing to distract from the authentic connection sparked by pure conversation. Through a series of original dating games such as The Bone Zone, a sex quiz asking very personal questions, or Say It Sexy, in which Jujubee challenges contestants to make a banal phrase like “where are the paper towels?” sound titillating, the bachelorX will decide if they will choose to venture beyond the mic and meet for a date in real life – courtesy of Jujubee.

“We all know dating can be a serious drag,” said Jujubee, host of Queen of Hearts. “Why not use some of my greatest skills - being a killer host, fearless wing woman, and all around comedy queen - to help some poor souls along the path to romantic enlightenment? I think we’ve cooked up something that audiences have never quite experienced before and that will open their ears and hearts to how amazing and unique other humans can be. We’re giving new meaning to the term ‘hot mic’ and I’m so excited for everyone to hear all of the sexy, silly fun I’m having in the first season of Queen of Hearts.”

Fans of 2000s-era MTV dating shows like Next and current fare such as Love Island, as well as Drag Race fans around the world, will enjoy the irresistible potion of provocative, ludicrous and heartfelt that is Queen of Hearts. The podcast series brings a sex positive, body positive, and inclusive approach to the dating game show.

Jujubee will be featured in next month’s NYC Pride March on her own Queen of Hearts dedicated float, and available for select interviews in the lead up to the June 21 wide launch.

Queen of Hearts is a Wondery, Amazon Music, and Rococo Punch co-production. Executive producers for Amazon Music and Wondery are Lauren Dee and Morgan Jones; Executive producers for Rococo Punch are John Perotti and Jessica Alpert.
