Bravo Is Bringing Back Blind Date

Bravo has created a world of reality tv viewing.  Real Housewives of New York, Below Deck, Southern Charm, and Shahs of Sunset to name a few. Almost every day of the week we tune in to see what shenanigans our favorite, or most loathed, “character” gets themselves into.

Are you wanting a change of scenery? Do you hate blind dates but LOVE watching others squirm having one? Then your prayers have been answered because  Bravo has decided to bring back one of the classics.

Back in the 90’s and early 2000’s, Blind Date was a hilarious, you guessed it, dating show which followed two romantic hopefuls on their first date.  Ahh, the cringe-worthiness of it all is coming back! And, according to The Daily Dish, “casting for Blind Date will begin immediately.” Anyone out there want their first date recorded for our entertainment pleasure?

Each episode viewers will be able to watch two people of “all ethnicities, ages, and sexual orientation”go out on a date.  Now, just watching a first date is awkward enough but to make it truly entertaining the show will also bring back the “hilarious commentary,” “graphics,” and “thought bubbles” that made the original show so much fun to watch.

For those of you who are not familiar with the original version, it might sound a little weird. But every day during lunch, my co-workers and I would gather around the TV and watch an episode.  Some of the dates went great. Some people had obvious chemistry and got along.  Those were the boring ones.  The best ones were when the couple was polar opposites. Or at least one of the people was really, really weird.  Then the added graphics and commentary were like the cherry on top.

I’m just going to keep my fingers crossed that this show won’t be like other shows from my “younger” days.  You know those. The ones that seemed so hilarious, then when you re-watch later in life you find yourself wondering why you liked it.  I know I’ll definitely tune in. I always love other peoples awkward moments.

TELL US – DO YOU REMEMBER BLIND DATE? ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE IT AGAIN?
