Date My Family is a show that helps singletons find love by sending them on dates with their potential partner's family. Over the last years, this dating show has become a Sunday night ritual, with thousands of viewers tuning in to catch the potential love stories and misses. The mysterious Driver Bae has captured many hearts, the entertaining commentator and shady camera action are legendry. We’re thankful for the zoomed-in struggling fork and knife games!
A show this great wouldn't be half as amazing without our Twitter family though. Every Sunday they mark the attendance register in memes, pulls up chairs in memes, and get us trending to the number spot. They even have a bit of a reputation for being all kinds of savage, so guests know they better act right.
The moments that excite us, aren't always romantic. Usually, it's the dates that go south, the hits and misses, the steamy conversations, or the downright rejections that have Mzansi talking for a long time.
Here are the top 10 moments that made us laugh uncontrollably or gasp in a shooketh state of unbelief:
