Before there was Married at First Sight, before The Bachelor there was Yasmin’s Getting Married, a short-lived 10 series in which 29-year-old recruitment manager, Yasmin Dale, was on a quest to find a partner and wed them on air.
But the series failed to fire and was yanked after just 4 episodes on air.
Originally the plan was Rene’s Getting Married with another aspiring bride, but she cancelled just two weeks from its premiere.
Poor Yasmin was told by 10 if she ever got married the network would foot the bill.
In 2014 she told Nine, “I was devastated, completely. I was very disappointed.
“I felt a mixture of emotions: a combination of being embarrassed and disappointed and humiliated to a degree, because ultimately my intentions were to meet someone and it didn’t work out and it was so public and so in the spotlight.
“It was just cut, gone, see you later (but) I didn’t feel that any of them any was even potential boyfriend level anyway.”
At the time she added, “I’m actually a mum now, so I bypassed the marriage.
“Tradition and Yasmin don’t go in the same sentence.
“I am dating someone, not her father … I don’t know if I’ll ever get married.
“I’ve given up on the idea.”
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
