Reality TV showing the high life of Dubai resident millionaires is another guilty pleasure. Time to sit back, relax and indulge in the drama and the diamonds.
Netflix reality series Dubai Bling was released on October 27, 2022 – this is our official season 1 recap.
How is life in the UAE? Glamorous, beautiful, full of drama and diamonds? Well, in this one Netflix reality series, we get a glimpse into the lives of ten millionaires who live, work and party in Dubai. In eight almost one-hour episodes, the millionaires are accompanied in their everyday life in front of the backdrop of luxury cars, fashion shows and exotic seaside resorts and show everything the lively city has to offer. Lavish parties, stunning skylines and stunning fashion are her norm.
Dubai Bling features notable names from the real estate and entertainment scene, as well as celebrities and influencers on the show. The featured performers hail from multiple countries including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, India and Australia. Some of the cast included Farhana Bodi, Kris Fade, DJ Bliss, Ebraheem Al Samadi, Zeina Khoury, Lojain Omran, Safa Siddiquiand Loujain Adada. Each of them is looking for something, be it image, power, money or love.
There’s no denying that audiences enjoy indulging in other people’s lives – usually a life different from their own. It’s fascinating how we get emotionally involved in the lives of people we don’t know, but that also has its positive sides. While we can get very jealous of their possessions and parties, these shows are usually filled with plenty of drama for us to poke fun at.
This series is no different. It is fueled with high drama Quarrels, tears, confrontations, so much cheek, and some lead to catfights. Money certainly builds trust and ego, and I was surprised at the struggles over how that money was made. Saying if it’s sponsored, it’s not real, it’s fake. There is a strong work ethic in earning your wealth in this series. Fashion is also a big aspect. From their dresses to their diamonds, everyone is curious and judges each other. There are also some beautiful, fun moments like an impromptu proposal, first dates, and birthday parties that last all month.
We get interviews with every millionaire talking about their journey and life in Dubai and why they love it so much. There’s dramatic rock music set over slow motion footage that’s so beautifully dramatic throughout that you can really focus on the richness around it. Their cars, their clothes, the location. There are heartfelt moments when they talk about family, tragedy and loss, and then some things you can’t take seriously, like how your house is too small for all your designer clothes. First world problems are still problems, I think.
Despite having a very similar format to series in the same genre, it is easy to watch and in some episodes I was hooked and couldn’t stop watching.
The series is worth watching if that’s your genre, if you like seeing how the other half lives and also if you want to know what life in the UAE can be like. While this series presents Dubai as the city of opportunity and wealth and everyone seems to be living their best life, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it, I still found it to be yet another show-off show with no real educational value; It’s modern trash TV. Trash TV with diamonds.
