It just reminds me of people proposing in really public settings; whether or not the person being propositioned actually wants to get married, they’re really going to have to say yes to save face.
If I were on First Dates, I would absolutely lie and say there would be a second date when asked, and then tell them over text that I couldn’t. I’d do that even if I wasn’t on national TV, but especially if I was.
Also, with the best will in the world, they always seem to get slightly weird situations on the show.
Take a recent date, for example, as two women with essentially the same name have a surprising connection.
Georgia already believed that all gay people knew each other, and she was sort of proven right when Georgia walked in and it soon became apparent that she had dated her niece in the past.
Obviously this set Twitter alight…
Things got really weird though when Georga gave Georgia a scratch card as a gift, which she won £100,000 with.
The two were understandably excited and discussed what they would buy with the winnings when, eventually, Georga revealed it was a fake.
Twists all over the place.
It’s like an M. Night Shyamalan film.
Luckily the two actually liked each other though, and they’re still enjoying one another’s company.
