Face masks or not, the need for love is greater than ever. They noticed that First dates, where they recorded a third more date-loving singles for the new season than last time.
Speaking of luck: the recordings of the new series First dates were scheduled for August when the restaurants were still open. Mouth masks were still a necessity at that time and the bubble of five had to be respected. In it, the singles who sat down for the three-course menu had to immediately record their blind date. No problem, because host Patrick Verhoeven noticed from behind his beard and mouth mask that many bachelors were longing for contact after the lockdown of the first corona wave.
“Some said they were literally on their own for weeks on end. In any case, it is not easy to find the right partner, let alone during a period when contacts are limited and dating is hardly possible. Many singles really hoped to catch up First dates to find the right partner and grabbed that date with both hands as an opportunity for true love. ”
That promise to be exciting table discussions, once the masks – literally and figuratively – fall off. There is certainly no lack of variety between aperitif and dessert. The youngest single is only 18, the oldest has already seen Abraham at 85 years old. A crossdresser and a bobsleigh pilot come along, a former Milk Inc singer hopes for a soul mate, just like a plus-size model.
In total good for about 70 brand new first dates with a strikingly positive tail end.
First dates, One, 9.30pm
