People love reality shows. Whether Big Brother or The Bachelorette, reality TV shows have always garnered off-the-roof TRPs; imagine what a show that boasts the concepts of both the Bachelorette and Big Brother would be like. Exactly! It will be a blast. We are talking about Occupation Double. But before we reveal the Occupation Double season 16 episode 1 release date and ” how to watch Occupation Double Season 16 Episode 1,” let’s fill in for those new to the show and its concept.
The first season of the Canadian reality series Occupation Double aired in 2003. Initially broadcast by V, TVA picked up the program ten years later. The show’s host and comedian, Jay Du Temple, makes it more entertaining. Regarding the show’s shooting locations, Occupation Double’s sixth season debuted in 2009. And for the sixth season, the Dominican Republic served as the setting for the whole show.
Whistler, British Columbia, was the location for the seventh season, while Portugal hosted the eighth. The ninth season of this popular series was planned to be shot in the United States. However, two locations were chosen for the tenth season: Polynesia and Spain. Indonesia was finalized for the eleventh season, which later became the franchise’s most successful season. Greece hosted the twelfth season, while South Africa hosted the thirteenth season.
Due to COVID-19, Occupation Double was able to film in Quebec due to several regulations on travel outside of France. During its 11th season, filmed in Bali and including renowned celebrities of Quebec, this reality TV show’s popularity skyrocketed. After the successful 11th season, the show’s creators didn’t stop and continued to entertain the viewers with more seasons. Once more, viewers are all set to witness romance, catfights, and a lot of drama all in one show and are eager to see who will be entering the house this season.
Occupation Double Season 15 Winners
In Occupation Double season 15, viewers were able to witness the top three couple’s trips to the Dominic Republic. The top three in the last season were Marilou and Robin, Audrey and Frédérick, and Ines and Stevens. And going by the online polls, Ines and Stevens were expected to most likely win. The fans who voted for them tweeted about how the couple’s best chemistry on the show. And the fans’ wishes and votes, of course, led Ines and Stevens towards victory.
The winning duo also received other prizes, including a loft in Eastman, Quebec. The highlight of season 15 was that Ines and Stevens not only won the trophy but made history by becoming the first black pair to win the title of Occupation Double.
Occupation Double Season 16: Format
As explained earlier, the show’s format is pretty straightforward to follow. It borrowed two concepts from two different reality TV shows, Big Brother and The Bachelorette. Imagine contestants being invited to stay at houses designed by the show’s creators. One place is for the male contestant and another for female contestants. But the elimination procedure is quite different.

The ladies eliminate one guy every week, and the men eliminate one lady. And with that, two individuals are eliminated from the competition every week. However, there have been numerous alterations to the format over time. The remaining males often have the chance to eliminate the women after most male participants leave the show after elimination. And on some occasions, multiple candidates can be eliminated at once, regardless of gender.
So how is the winner chosen? The last couple standing is the show’s winner. Before that, however, the audience can vote for their favorite couple out of the final four couples.
