Meet Paige Dacanay one among the fourteen singles who are ditching modern dating to get in touch with their animal instincts on Love in the Jungle, a new series that launched on discovery+ on 8 May 2022.
Now let us take you through this read about Paige; to find out why she decided to go on this unique dating experience where the rules asked her and her mates not to talk at all and instead perform animalistic mating rituals to find romantic connections.
Paige Dacanay On Love In The Jungle
Love in the Jungle called on 14 singles to deliver their most accurate animal impressions. And Paige Dacanay was asked to channel her “inner starfish”. Believing that starfish have a ton of nerve endings, she can be seen trying to tap into her emotional side and not hold back.
For Paige, because she is a big talker, she said it was very challenging and awkward not being able to communicate with words. But she somehow learned to fit in like the others using eye contact, trying to touch each other, also with kissing and just making noises. So, when this worked, she only had to focus to win the mating ritual. Because this mating ritual gave them chance to become alpha and the alpha was given a chance to bring on two people on a date where everyone got to talk.
Therefore, just as Lynsey said, it took only about 20 minutes for Paige and everyone to get used to their more animal ways of getting their point across.
So, why Love In The Jungle and why, not other dating shows including Bachelor or Bachelorette? She answered that is because she is not big on drama and she did not want to become super competitive with other girls.
Is Paige Dacanay Dating Anyone?
Paige Dacanay’s biggest takeaway from this dating show was being able to connect to people in a genuine and authentic way; without any phones or the next best thing to distract her. She said she focused on eye contact to communicate her interest in someone, and that she also found herself doing a lot of soul-searching. But, did she bring home anyone from the show?
A trailer of Love in the Jungle shows her mind tension with Stephanie Almeida; Stephanie likes Stephan Davis. Paige could be heard saying she is taking (likely from her) whatever she wants.
Anyway, though she had not yet revealed if she started dating anyone after coming back home from the show, she certainly mentioned being single before going on the show.
