There are certain rules one needs to follow to visit the hotel. One of the conditions is that a contestant must pair up with another or else they’ll have to suffer in ‘Hell’. They are not allowed to choose their dating partner based on aspects like age and profession.

Criticism Faced By The Cast Of Single’s Inferno
The show primarily has contestants who fit certain standards of beauty and look a certain way. These unattainable beauty standards have sparked controversy amongst social media users. The show refuses to accept diversity in the way people look and are non-inclusive. Single’s Inferno has a cast that is conventionally pretty thus reinforcing the norm that people must look good to find love or be worthy enough to feature on television. The makers have been receiving a lot of criticism for their propagation of harmful standards.
In addition to this, there were some comments made by the participants of the show that international viewers regarded as being politically incorrect and insensitive. Many viewers pointed out how difficult it was to watch people discuss their physical features explicitly in a way that dismisses the feelings of others and propagates a negative self-image amongst teenagers. Controversy had ignited when one of the members of the cast used “pale skin” as a defining characteristic. The show’s focus on external beauty has been a topic of rigorous debate.
