In the age of social media where preconceived notions dominate and dating apps thrive on a swipe-left-or-right-attitude, hopeful singles looking to form a true connection – or perhaps just any connection – take the ultimate plunge when they embark on a blind date.
Today’s Blind Date is nod to the original format with a modernized twist. As each unpredictable date progresses, only time will tell if these strangers struggle to connect or find their perfect match. Cameras follow these daters’ every move and their dates range from awkward, to fun, to cringe-worthy in the best way possible.
Comedian Nikki Glaser guides viewers through each encounter with hilarious commentary, as various graphics, animations and ever-telling “thought bubbles” ensure that nothing goes unsaid. With nothing to rely on but first impressions, perhaps these daters will prove sometimes you’re better off going in blind.
