Format edit

The premise of the show is that there is a group of people (girls, boys and boys' moms) living together in a large, usually specially constructed house. During their time in the house they are isolated from the outside world and are not aware of outside events. Contestants are continuously monitored by in-house television cameras as well as personal audio microphones during their stay. Each series lasts for about 1 year, with 41–45 contestants entering the house to marry.

Launch day edit

On the launch Day, anywhere from upwards of approximately 28 contestants entered the Mireasă pentru fiul meu house. In the first season, contestants entered the house in the launch night.

Contestants edit

In every season the girls and boys, together with their mothers, grandmothers, (In season 2 Florin entered in the competition with his grandmother Maria and in season 3 Laurențiu entered in the competition with grandmother Maria) stepmothers, (In season 2 Răzvan entered in the competition with his stepmother Elena) aunts (In season 1 Ionuț entered in the competition with his aunt Mariana, but her aunt was replaced by her mother, Niculina in final weeks) or single entered in the Mireasă pentru fiul meu house on the Launch Day. In the first two weeks the boys and girls stay in different houses, the boys, in the boys' house and the girls, in the girls' house with the boys' mothers.

Weekly bride and weekly mother edit

Every week one girls and one mother who received the most public votes are declared the weekly bride and the weekly mother. They can be saved from elimination. Also the weekly mother can save his son from elimination.

Nomination and elimination edit

Almost every week, the contestants (except boys) make nominations. In some weeks the mothers nominate one, two or three girls and in the others weeks the girls nominate one or two boys with their mothers. The contestants who received the most nominations are up for elimination during that week. The contestant who received the fewest votes from the public is eliminated from the competition.

Isolation edit

Mireasă pentru fiul meu contestants are isolated in the house, without access to television, radio or the Internet; they are not permitted routine communication with the outside world. This was an important issue for most earlier series of the show. In more-recent series, contestants are occasionally allowed to view televised events (usually as a reward for winning at a task). Despite the contestants isolation, some contestants are occasionally allowed to leave the house as part of tasks. Contestants are permitted to leave the house in an emergency.

Live final and the winners edit

At the beginning of the Live Final, a small number of contestants remained in the house (anywhere from 7 to 11) after surviving numerous eliminations. The public were asked to vote for their favourite surviving couple (bride and bridegroom with bridegroom's mother called mother-in-low) to win a cash prize and be crowned the winners of Mireasă pentru fiul meu. Voting lines were suspended at intervals during the show to reveal runners-up. Contestants finishing lower than third place, were eliminated without delay and interviewed by the presenter. Once the second runners-up had been revealed, the show took a break, before returning half an hour later to allow the third place contestants to be evicted and interviewed. The winner was then announced. The first runners-up then left the house and was interviewed, followed by the winners, who were usually treated and greeted to a cheering crowd and a firework display before their interview. In Live Final some couples can marriages.
