Would you let your family go on a date for you?
That’s the question Mzansi Magic’s latest dating show: Date My Family.
In Date My Family, bachelors and bachelorettes must choose a potential based solely on the recommendations of their families.
The reality show format is pretty straightforward with three potentials vying for a chance to date the singleton through dates with his or her families. The three potential partners will be kept out of sight, watching the action unfold onscreen, as the bachelor/bachelorette engages with their respective family. They will also secretly be hoping that their families paint them in the best possible light and make a good first impression. With no communication at all between the bachelor/bachelorette and the potential partners, the scene is set for an unforgettable final date.
Expect laughs and drama as Cupid gets a helping hand from brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, moms, dads, nieces, nephews, cousins and of course, grandparents. At the end the day, the question remains: will it be love at the first ‘hello’ or will it be a fast goodbye!
13-part series Date My Family, produced for Mzansi Magic by Connect TV in South Africa, airs every Sunday beginning 24th of May 2015.
