It’s a full-on family affair.

In Mzansi's favourite reality TV show, Date My Family, the viewers are introduced to a bachelor or bachelerette on a quest to find the one. The singleton goes on three dates with the families and friends of their potential bae.

Here’s why viewers vibe with the show.

Drama and laughs

Some of the singles don't hold back. Expect drama, laughs, and even tension as shade is thrown. Dating should be considered an extreme sport!

Diversity in love

Like Mzansi, the show includes people of all ages, ethnicity, and sexuality. You know what they say, love doesn't discriminate.


Who doesn't love a surprise? No one can say for sure what will happen when the singles finally meet. Sometimes there's a war of words, snarky remarks, and even an epic walk-off, and sometimes they hit it off.


A family affair

Two people for what? It's a family affair! Based solely on how well the other person was repesented by their family or friends, the bachelor or bachelorette must choose a potential partner.

Get on the love train. Catch Date My Family season 1 Sunday at 16:35.
