Dating In The Dark Starts on Fox 8 Tonight – Double Standards Still Exist?

Season Two of Dating In The Dark premieres tonight on Fox 8 at 9.30pm.

The premise on the show is three single ladies and three single guys move into a mansion and they date each other in a dark room so they are judging on other things rather then looks. They then get to see one person quickly in the flesh before deciding on whether to meet them on the balcony to continue their interaction outside the house.

Well kind of as they all go in for a bit of touching to ensure they like the feel of the body.

The show is at times irritating due to the vacuousness of the single people, however also entertaining as we get to be voyeurs on their dates. Also what was illuminating was that in 2012 women are still split into categories of girls you would have a “good time” with and those you would marry. On the other side of the coin I think some of the girls are a bit too fussy.

Host Laura Dundovic keeps it moving on as does the fast editing of the dates as there is not a lot of interesting conversation going on.

Tonight’s episode see Megan, Lorryndale, and Danielle meet up with Eli, Matt and Alfredo, and I must say I was surprised with the out come of the dates and who hooked up with whom. I will put up a short recap tonight as I don’t want to give out spoilers here.

One thing I would like to see is some episodes with some older people, that is over 30, to see the different dynamics that this would bring.

Also I am sure Shine who produce the show are hoping Megan lives in The Shire as she would surely be the type of  character they would like on that show.

Dating In The Dark Starts On Fox 8 tonight, Tuesday 10 April at 9.30pm.

I have to agree with you. The show makes me cringe when they finally meet. They can go from pashing on the bean bag to giving the other the cold shoulder.
It is quite an odd show.

This show would work better if the contestants all had their eyes poked out first!

Nice one Georgie!
RR I thought Megan was a shocker! She didn’t go on the show to meet conquest number 51 (her ball park figure!) – she went on there to promote herself.
And the whole “it’s nothing to do with looks he’s just too young looking” was a crock of s**t too!!
I’ve seen a few Oz, US & UK episodes, and this was one of the craziest I must say! Still entertaining though.

I find bizarre how shallow girls are, I would have thought would have been the guys!! The danni girl, had such a weird face and not attractive at all. Plus the personality of a bookkeper to match the look… Dull as… left saying she did not line the looks of the guy who was really nice.. And he was so above her in the looks department!! Go figure!!
