As you may or may not know I have a handful of TV shows that I truly love. Things like StormChasers and Deadliest Catch. Last year saw MasterChef Australia walk into my live but two winters ago it was ITV’s latest attempt at a dating show Take Me Out that got me glued to the screen.
If you haven’t seen it then the premise of the show is rather simple. 30 girls watch guys come down and try to impress them. If they want to go on a date with him then they keep their light on. If they don’t then they turn off their lights. No likey, No lighty. If at the end of three rounds more than two girls have their lights on then the guy picks who he wants to go on a date with. It’s trashy, it’s awful but at the same time it is fantastic Saturday night TV.
Anyway last year one of my favourites Dawn got a date with a seemingly nice guy. Well over a year later and Dawn and Dan are engaged and being the kind of sap that I am, I’m delighted. They just both seem like good people and compared to some of the obvious wannabes that inhabit the show it is great to see that something can work.
There have been a couple of other engagements but both of these involve people who didn’t choose each other on the show and met at after show parties etc. Dan still chose Dawn despite arguably the worst air guitar ever when he asked to see the final two girls’ best air guitar. Still it all worked out and hopefully they’ll make it down the aisle and live happily ever after.
If I recall correctly there were only ever two or three Blind Date weddings (but that might be wrong) so if this one works out Take Me Out will be on its way to bettering its Saturday night preprocessor. I wish them both all the best in the world. It is stories like this that keep us all hoping that the right person will wander into our lives and you never know where or when it’ll happen. It won’t happen for me on Take Me Out as there is no way I’d keep on any lights but still that isn’t the point.
We all like a successful love story don’t we?
