TLC released its newest reality dating series MILF Manor on Sunday - and the twist shocked viewers.

The show is centred around eight single "confident and strong-minded women" between the ages of 40-60, who are vacationing at a boutique hotel in Mexico.

The first episode showed the women preparing to meet up with their suitors for the very first time, but they were in for a shocking revelation.

In last month's trailer for the show, many people speculated that the surprise was probably the women's sons.

And it turned out that they were correct - the MILFs were gobsmacked to find that the dating pool of men did, in fact, include each other's sons.

Viewers were equally stunned:

Many referenced the 2008 30 Rock episode, which featured a parody reality dating show called MILF Island, and added: "Fun fact MILF Manor is actually a remake."

MILF Manor airs on Sundays on TLC at 10pm ET.
