The format was simple: A single woman asks three single men questions, but they’re hidden from her view.
TV shows centered around dating didn’t start with crazy reality shows featuring hot tub sex.
One of the first dating shows on television was called , which made its debut in 1965.
Instead they are put on a date with an actor or comedian who plays someone with a serious flaw, for example being a , a drunk (actually the date with the drunk chick looked like a lot of fun), a criminal breaking parole, an escaped lunatic or a twenty-five year old virgin.
Two things take “Hell Date” from a great idea to a work of genius that shall echo through the centuries.
BET has built it into the funniest show on television since “Family Guy” hit the shits.
Hell Date, incidentally is a show in which one person believes they are going on a regular dating show, like “Ship Mates” or something.Honestly, the best part of this show was when girls investigated dudes' rooms and turned on a blacklight so she could find all the semen stains on the sheets. Yeah, really, folks were meant to find love during a three day stay on a Carnival Cruise.Given how prone people are to getting sick on cruises, I can't imagine this being all that appealing. Basically, a guy or a girl came in with a few qualifications of their dream dude/lady, and looked in the crowd of the studio audience to see if any of them matched.Then, the person who is "singled out" is grilled with a bunch of thirsty questions.If any of these shows makes a comeback, it should be this one. Basically, the dudes competing for one lucky lady's heart had to wear masks for the duration of the show.Sometimes, there would be a gender swap, or they’d have a celebrity edition.
