Loved Love Is Blind, but weren't quite satisfied with The Bachelor Winter Games? Have no fear: the best stocking stuffer show is here! HBO Max kicks off the reality TV winter romance season with 12 Dates of Christmas.

While the competition series doesn't quite have a dozen episodes, viewers follow three lucky singles on their quest to find someone special to spend the holidays with. From ugly sweater parties to a masquerade ball complete with a horse-drawn carriage, the 12 Dates of Christmas cast gets the royal treatment at a winter wonderland Austrian castle.

The series also is breaking barriers with a racially and sexually diverse cast as the three hopeless romantic "leads" of the show. The drama of surprise arrivals, ex appearances, and the countdown to New Year's Eve makes 12 Dates of Christmas the ultimate festive dating series.

Get to know the trio competing to find their own fairytale ahead of the Thanksgiving premiere!
