Love Without Borders is a brand new reality TV series airing on Bravo in a few days. The next reality dating series follows five individuals who put love to the test by completely rearranging their lives in search of true passion. Each Love Without Borders single takes a trip to an undisclosed location outside of the United States. They will be partnered with their “ideal life partner” upon arrival, but there’s a catch: their journey will be extremely short.
The five single people do not receive any information about their partner before their trip. They also won’t be able to communicate with or view a single image of their “ideal partner” before they leave the United States.
According to the official summary of Love Without Borders,
“Love Without Borders follows five Americans, Aaron Motacek, Danna Richards, Philip Michael Thomas Jr., Naeem Thompson and Gurleen Virk, as they risk everything for love.”
Aaron Motacek is one of the show’s singletons and his ideal wife is Mal Lucas, a former logistics expert from Paris, France. The series will premiere on Bravo on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 at 8 p.m. ET.
Mal Lucas of Love Without Borders left the corporate world to pursue a career in massage.
Mal is a former corporate logistics consultant who retired in 2019 to follow his love of massage. A graduate of TEMANA massage school, he wants to share his enthusiasm with “as many people as possible,” according to his personal website. Mael’s massage website has a professional Instagram account, which is @maelmassage. He has almost 500 followers and often writes about his work.
According to his profile, the masseur specializes in “Californien, Balinais, Thalandais, Foot Tha, Shirotchampi, Tha au sun.” He has also highlighted highlights, which display videos of his massages and other information for those interested. Maelus0 is the ID for Mal’s personal Instagram account. On his own page, he has just over 5600 followers. He also loves to travel and has featured highlights of his travel adventures as well as posting about his travels often. Mael took to Instagram for Love Without Borders’ season debut and posted a photo of herself from the show.
The show also released a teaser, hinting at what fans might expect from the inaugural season of Love Without Borders. The teaser shows Aaron and Mal developing a deep bond. In the teaser, Aaron says to Mal:
“That’s what it’s like to fall in love for the first time.”
Aaron, Mael’s partner, is an optometrist from Fargo, North Dakota. He leaves his close-knit family to pursue love with Mal, but will they find what they want in each other? We’ll have to wait until the series starts on November 30 to find out.
