Spare the shiny floor budget, hang the expense of TV weddings, the cheap and cheerful First Dates returns to Seven this week with new episodes.
It’s been a while since the Aussie edition has screened new episodes, but I suspect it still has its fans.
Episode one even features former Cop Shop legend Paula Duncan!
Also coming up this season Richard Reid and James Tindale from Geordie Shore (not together…!)
It screens at 7:30pm Tuesday & Wednesday on Seven.
On First Dates, real people go on blind dates in a restaurant with a unique twist. They’ve come from right across the country to face the most intense night of their lives. Discreet cameras follow every date…and every move! They’ve been matched on their likes and dislikes. Some will sizzle. Some will crash and burn. What happens next is up to them! At the end of the night, they must decide… will they go on a second date.
Meanwhile on Wednesday Seven adds Temptation Island USA in a double episode from 8:40pm. This is a 2019 season (S4) filmed in Hawaii, hosted by Mark L. Walberg. Seven had previously announced a local edition but it has since stalled.
Temptation Island follows four dating couples at a pivotal time in their relationship, where they must mutually decide if they are ready to commit to one another for the rest of their lives — or should go their separate ways. Together, the couples travel to the tropical paradise of Maui, Hawaii, where they join 24 eligible men and women. There, they live the “single life,” in a test that is meant to help answer their most difficult questions about their relationship.
